    Victoria Regional Transit System

    I'm not sure if the route announcement only inside the bus is a bug, it was doing that on every Kamloops bus I rode a couple months back while I was visiting there with their NextRide system. Not sure if they've equipped them to do an outside the announcement, but in my opinion I don't mind how it does it inside instead of outside because I was even able to hear it from outside the front door of the buses there while it played from the interior.

    My friend was at Bourquin in Abbotsford today, and he spotted what appeared to be a D40LF in the current scheme leaving and he only saw the rear of the bus and noticed it didn't have the full A/C unit on top and it had flipdots. Is there a chance it could be an ex CMBC unit running, he also did mention it looked like the tailpipe wasn't curved but he couldn't get a fleet number... I am just confused because I thought all of those were gone from Abbotsford and only the 9800's were remaining.

    Does anyone know if these new XN40's have the new L9N Engines, or are they ISL-G's?
  4. I rode on 9756 yesterday, still running strong! Also rode 8099 today on the 1 Vedder as well.
  5. 4B9KSLA69G2038001 is the VIN for the BYD Demo, it was built in 2016, same one CMBC used briefly last year and it's the same one that's in Victoria now. Yes it also has the same California Demonstration Plates. No more need on speculation, because it's the same coach period.

    I'm sure in about 10 years, we'll start seeing XT40's & XT60's.

    BC Transit - Chilliwack

    A few weeks back, I had a strange detour myself on the 66 back home to Chilliwack and due to an accident or something on the freeway we detoured in east Abbotsford through the sumas prairies on Vye & McDermott Road! As for 8099, I've been keeping a close eye on it at the yard and from what I know it will see service in the next couple weeks or less as it needs a CVI and servicing done before it enters service It apparently is replacing a bus that broke down, what I don't know but I assume a Nova.

    Sound Transit

    The new CNG coaches are ISX12G, not ISL-G... Coaches have at least 390HP for a engine and ISL-G only goes up to 320HP. Just letting people know because a lot of people assume it has a ISL-G, but it DOES NOT.

    2014(-2017) Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Turns out it was not a 2017 after all. It's actually 16040 according to a friend of mine who is a forum member but can't access CPTDB right now. Apparently it was involved in a collision.

    It wasn't a BCT unit, the scheme was clearly Charcoal for Translink. Maybe it's just a 2014 or 2016 getting repaired but I'm not sure...
