    They are temporary placeholders for when signs are damaged.

    Probably referring to the fleet numbers, which were replaced in April.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Alternatively for improved Canada Line service into Richmond, there could be some "easier" solutions compared to rebuilding the portion between Lansdowne and Richmond-Brighouse, rebuilding Richmond-Brighouse, or adding guideway. These are just some random thoughts and suggestions: Reduce dwelling time at Richmond-Brighouse since trains stop for about two minutes If dwelling time is absolutely needed, do it at Lansdowne Change the operating pattern from 1 train to Brighouse and 1 train to YVR to 2 trains to Brighouse and 1 to YVR during peak hours, similar to how the Expo Line runs, which means combined frequency will go to every 2 minutes instead of 3 Maintain daytime frequency into the evening along the entire line (which depends on how frequency changes, operating patterns, etc., but pretty much a variation of the present 3 minutes combined, 6 on branches)

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    They will very likely be painted, but no specific details are available. However, someone asked earlier regarding the seating arrangement on Novas: TL has specified its preferred rear seating arrangement to be similar to the CMBC XD40s and XN40s (first row front facing, subsequent bench style) regardless of the tender and Nova offers that layout, but the layout is not confirmed and no details are available.

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    CMBC uses hub piloted steel wheels from Accuride (or whatever is approved by TL/CMBC and is similar) and they're powder coated silver to match the livery. West Vancouver uses Alcoa Dura-Bright or similar aluminum wheels. Standard charcoal paint scheme. Window configuration will be two per side.
  10. TL;DR: Yes, some announcements need touching up and no, the Canada Line is technically not a part of SkyTrain. Yes, I agree that station names should also be included in stop announcements instead of vague references such as the example you gave with Cambie Street and yes, some announcements could use some touching up such as your example of Brighouse and Bridgeport. However, I'm going to stop you at where you state that the Canada Line is a part of the SkyTrain network. We must acknowledge the reason as to why Canada Line stations are not labelled as SkyTrain stations in the first place because technically speaking, the Canada Line is separate from the SkyTrain network, but we include it on our maps as "SkyTrain" just to simplify its complicated relationship with the network. This is most evident in the smallest of details on the Canada Line. When we approach a Canada Line station, we are not approaching a SkyTrain station as it is not labelled as such. It is labelled literally, "Canada Line Station" underneath the station name. Or another example can be at Granville Station signage near the Dunsmuir Street entrance: you're either being directed to SkyTrain, or you're being directed to the Canada Line because again, they're two separate entities that coexist in the network. And there's always the obvious stuff with the Canada Line fleet, Canada Line Attendants, and zero references to SkyTrain branding or decals, but we won't get into that. The "discrepancies" you state, is only a subtle nod to acknowledge that the Canada Line is not SkyTrain. But of course, this is only my two cents.

    7344 to Hamilton.
  13. This has been going on since September 2017 on weekdays only. Initially, there were seven trips that did this routing (two in the morning and five in the afternoon). Those trips usually interlined with the 116 during peak hours to skip going into the loop, but ultimately cuts out the Bonsor portion of the trip. However, since the December sheet, there's 11 trips that do this routing (three in the morning, eight in the afternoon), also on weekdays only. The 110 also does the Kingsway routing, skipping Bonsor, on weekdays only with two trips (one in the early morning and one during PM peak hours).
