  1. I was on 425 today outbound, and all it said was king george, its not totally consistent yet
  2. South Granville is a common name for that area though, just like Mount Pleasant. (At least amongst people I know). I think these provisional names are good choices, I hope they stick with them.
  3. ...Apparently an M line train bit a bear about an hour ago between inlet centre and Coquitlam central outbound. Not sure which unit, but M line is running a complicated pattern of shuttle trains right now
  4. Since the main access is from below and above the platforms, I wonder how hard it would be to convert columbia into an island. Youd have to close it for some time (detour to NW) and just shift the stairs. Could even go for a stadium style layout with a 3rd platform carved into the hill for terminating trains
  5. I'm sure they expect said route to capture many of the current 41 riders, and the 41 is 4th on the list! Also, the 41 is the only option on 41st Avenue during the weekend, so it makes sense that the 43 isn't top 10. I think it's fair to say that 41st Avenue is the busiest transit corridor in the system that isn't already a B-line.
  6. Lol I actually rode it on the 12th, I got a video out the back of it UBC -> Dunbar, my first time ever videoing a ride. RIP. Not many d60lfs left on my commute now.
  7. I think RTC might have a couple to send to WVMT still
  8. I did spot 7257 outside of that warehouse about a week ago
  9. Yes please: 25, 319... even the 84 weekdays
  10. No visible effects so far. Still lots of BAEs about, so if they're fixing stuff, it isn't impacting service. Since we're this far in, I don't expect anything dramatic.
  11. Well, except for the artics, and except for the orions, and except for that C40LF...
  12. I just used a luggage rack for the first time ever, on a crush loaded nova 601 - I wasnt the only one either. Never thought to use them over many Orion commutes...
  13. And therefore, we have reached the strange juncture whereupon the B-line scheme buses have a 0% chance of appearing on any B-lines. Our B-line painted vehicles will now be running exclusively on non B-line routes...
  14. I sort of hope, although it's a longshot, that by installing these new trolley wires TL might get some experience with it and maybe will be more open to extending the trolley network... I think it remains a good investment. For new routes, a few seem like low hanging fruit: - Replicating the old 15 is obvious from 12th (soon) to marine stn, wires at both ends. Also, the 50, which has wires already throughout... these routes dont have as much ridership though. -The 2 would be nice, also wires at both ends plus they'll be wiring MacDonald from 4th to Broadway. I don't know what the future holds for the 2 post-Broadway subway, but the demand for the northern part might even increase! This would be NIMBY central though. - The 119 or 130 would be neat and achievable, and there are already wires to metrotown and kootenay loop, but it seems like in the past Burnaby hasn't been so keen. The 130 could link up with a 9 extension from boundary (wires could even run to BTC)... (Longer term, if the north shore is keen (and they have their hills and busy routes), stanley park wires are just a bridge away. So is the 4 terminus, but we would have to have highway speed trolleys then)
  15. Which means... the entire CMBC fleet now has next stop displays.
