    Of those routes listed, only the 85 is still called by its route name.

    There are no Bus Routes 4-9, 23, 27 and 52 as well. Of those, only 4 and 52 were bus services in the last fifteen years. 4 being another Downtown Spirit route and 52 being the St. Boniface of the 19. The 52 is proposed as a route number for a new service servicing Sage Creek that is postponed due to funding. Not sure why there is no 23.

    65 doesn't serve the UofM so I can't see it getting a artic.

    Winnipeg Transit 300-369 (2018 XD40)

    Spotted 312 on the side of the maintenance garage with its engine doors open. That didn't take long.

    Noticed that there is often a D30LF parked across the street from Osborne Garage along Brandon. What is the reason why those buses are parked there?

    Too bad the same good news for Churchill can't be said for the Gaspe train and the Vancouver Island services. Those services are still suspended last I heard. The question keeps coming up in VIA's Annual Public Meeting as to when those services will come back.

    You are correct. I meant D60LF's. They do look sleek going down the Transitway.

    The agenda for the September Public Works meeting is up. Three interesting items on there in relation to Transit. The first is that New Flyer is supplying 28 60-foot buses to Transit, which would make for 48 60-foot buses - 20 D40LF's and 28 XD60's. The second is that Transit is proposing a fare waiver for military personal on November 11th, which is overdue. The third item is that Transit and Hydro are proposing cancelling the 39 Taylor Park & Ride due to low ridership. That service will end on December 14th - in other words, the winter schedule will not have a route 39. I am not surprised by that proposal as I have never seen that route in operation and the fact only about 36 people use it every weekday! There are also the usual Transit agenda items such as the Transitway and Garage project reports. They are also reviewing the Upass and Handi Transit. Should make for a interesting meeting on September 7th.

    I saw a Selkirk Transit bus turning onto Mission earlier this week.

    Interesting that the fare between Vancouver and Mission on VIA is $37 dollars. The only other city pair that its comparable to on the Canadian route is Winnipeg and Portage where two trains serve. There its 31.50 in Economy on the Canadian and 30.45 in Economy on the Winnipeg-Gilliam. If you go for the Economy - Escape its $21 on the Canadian and $23.10 on the Winnipeg-Gilliam. Though with the current schedule, it's impossible to have a round-trip to Portage on VIA alone.

    Speaking of VIA operations in Vancouver, has there been a upswing in commuters using the eastbound Canadian between Vancouver and Mission Harbour since the new schedule was introduced? Judging by the schedule comparison between it and the West Coast Express, it would look appealing to commuters on Tuesday and Friday.

    308 was on the 11 this afternoon.

    Interesting thing about that old bridge, is the fact its 20 years older than the Jubilee Overpass. It will be a definite change once that bridge comes down.
