  1. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    Spotted R8010 showing 620 Tsaww Ferry / Via / Ladner Exchange / Lest We Forget (Balios sign) At 4 exposures, thats a lot of text. Anyone know the max? What if the bus also had the Sorry Full or Express setting set, would it start replacing other messages?
  2. Collisions and Incidents thread

    This poor 410 is stranded on annacis island, its not scheduled to be doing any 104s or anything though. Im not sure what happened there...

    17548 in service today.

    I figured everyone has seen this by now, but https://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/retirement_export.txt exists for those who don't know. Be sure to bookmark it!
  5. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    There are more NFI vehichles on the 15 right now than there are novas. If you asked me a month ago, I sure didnt think that would happen any time soon.
  6. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    7404 to VTC, it was just ahead of me on marine drive for a ways. I wonder if this will be a recurring theme...
  7. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    I rode a 14 Hastings today, and between ubc loop and the first stop (allison) the interior stop announcement sign displayed a scrolling message about that stop coming back into service, I had never seen that display read anything except stop names and the random debug and version info when the bus starts up (MID: xxxxxx) and all that. So that was kind of interesting.
  8. New Flyer D60LF Retirement / Storage watch

    As far as I can tell, I think the busses you listed as retired in 2015 actually retired in 2016 (some after the 150xx entered service in the spring), and the ones listed as being retired in 2016 were retired this year. Off by one! Having said that, 8086 and 8101 did retire in late 2015. Going by the wiki, anyway.
  9. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    I rode 17502 earlier, and I like the layout far more than our other shuttles. Looks nice too. It feels more natural cohesive and less like a makeshift box bolted on a pickup truck. I'd support that design for future orders. Also, 17503 in service this AM.

    I wonder how many ubc students you can fit in the luggage rack
  11. Random Photos - Vancouver and area

    I'm having a midnight peek at the nextbus mobile website regarding the routes that are changing this sheet, and enjoying some of the oddities. Here are a couple of my favorite nonsense screenshots... I'd excited for my one seat ride from deep cove to east cambie, and I can get a convenient transfer to ladner exchange at Haney Place!

    But there's no C94 on Sundays...
  13. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Astute observation! It tracks the current Unix time divided by 60. (Linux/Unix computers assume the world began on jan 1st 1970, and keep track of time simply as a the number of seconds that have passed since then)
  14. New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Weird, tcomm is showing that the 620 is 100% low floor series 50 busses right now. There's some on the 480 too...
