  1. Not tomsplit hairs but "injured, assessed on scene, and released" is media talk for not really injured 😂 They hit a pole. No doubt it hurt a bit!! But they were fine.
  2. Turns out the electric part of the drive didn't disconnect so the bus was rolling without the accelerator down. Rather frightening! The operator was pretty unhappy with the hybrid buses - sounds like they're really touchy to drive No injuries.
  3. 9101 somehow ended up crossing a sidewalk via a tree at Uptown. At first glance doesn't seem significant damage to anything other than the tree. Not sure about injuries but there wasn't a ton of Ambulances there which is always good.
  4. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    Doubt it... the flow never seems to go West Van to CMBC. Don't they still have D40LFs to get rid of?
  5. I rode 6001. From the perspective of someone who doesn't pay that much attention (me) it seemed exactly the same as the last order of Nova's.
  6. 2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    You'd also think that it won't be a literal 27 for 27 high floor to double decker swap; the 620 as we see now strikes me as an ideal candidate for continued double decker use. Obviously that's a 60-footer assignment now. Nice to see Translink moving forward with it, though. Between these and the Nova suburbans it'll be the end of the high-floor era!
  7. 6011 was just on McKenzie "Not In Service". Doesn't look new at all with all the dirt on the roads right now.
  8. Full time Brampton Transit Operator

    The second link is current on the results page. Looks like it hasn't changed much or if at all.
  9. VIA Rail Canada

    BC Rail was a Crown Corporation; so, controlled by the Government. To make BC Rail more "sellable" the Government directed that the passenger rail service be terminated. A bit later CN bought (albeit technically lease essentially forever) BC Rail.

  11. Vancouver Special Sightings

    It's the second one, as has been the "plan" (or lackthereof) for the last seven years.
  12. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    In Canada? Seems far fetched.
  13. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    That's so asinine. Sounds like a joke but I'm worried it isn't 😂 Like Canucks Lions 'Caps is too much??!! Go team!
