  1. Came to us about two weeks ago. I knew it was coming. Apparently next month we are getting 6001,2,3 as well as a 4400 series. As as for the 6000’s. that will leave all in Kelowna except for two.
  2. I've updated the routes on the wiki for Kelowna. There were some that are not in service anymore. Others chagned names. I also divided them up by municipality.
  3. We only have 4 Kelowna Flyers left. 9749, 9840, 9878, 9872. None of them have NextRide installed. 9400 did come back. Not sure where it was.
  4. Only on the 92 and 9300's. the 6000's it would appear have a deeper panel and the sign doesn't quite cover it. I will take some pictures when I have a moment and show you.
  5. Just noticed this morning that 9400 is no longer here. Was in dead row awaiting repairs, and now it's gone. Anyone are of where it night have went?
  6. Hey guys. Thanks @Matt Dunlop for updating things. I have been so busy I haven't had time to even think about updating. \ We have 9246,47,48 here in Kelowna now.
  7. Hey gang: We have also started to receive a bunch of other buses that were originally sent to Victoria. 6006, 6007, 6008, 6009. 9350, 51, 9400, 9401, 9402 have all shown up here. The deckers are all gone except for one. 9519 remains here with some engine issues and as I understand it, they pla to drive it to Victoria. I haven't had time to even think about updating the wiki, but thank you to Iron for doing so.
  8. 9528 never did see revenue service in Kelowna that I am aware of. And I am not 100% sure of the resaon why. Just before Christmas though a whole whack of new Novas started showing up here in Kelowna. and with that the departure of quite a few of the 9700's. We have only a few of our 9800's and oddly enough 8084 still on the road. A couple of 9700's still exist, although I am not 100% sure which ones. My shift has me in the yard after most buses have left the yard, and I'm done before most of them return. The new Novas start at 6013 and highest number I have been at this point is 6027. 6013 is the test bus with the shield for the driver in it which is proving to be quite a useless addition. When I have some time, I will see if I can get an update from our shop and update the wiki.
  9. We have a few of the 3000 series in Kelowna and they have been falling apart. Hoping that when we get a newer one they are more reliable. So far the Vicinity seems to have a pretty quiet and comfortable ride with its suspension. Way more comfortable than the Darts. IMO. The six speed ZF tranny in the Vicinity buses sure leaves something to be desired though. Never stops shifting. When you come to a hill and have to press the accelerator, they will down shift twice (on a steeper grade) before starting to pull the hill. I think if the shift points were set up better that would help. Would love to here from Iron if the newwer 4000 series are setup differently. Our shop has been powerless to be able to get anything done about it.
  10. I am really glad to see that this finally took off. Something that southern Alberta has needed for quite some time. As a former Calgarian, I remember a guy who ran a daily service to Black diamond of of the Calgary Greyhound depot. Had an old MC8. But people had to go downtown to get on the bus. Wasn't a very effective regional connector.
  11. Some interesting goings on in Kelowna here in the last little while. We were sent 3 D40LF from Nanaimo. 9727, 9729, 9736. Two of them have already had plates taken off after only being in service here a short time and are now being scavenged for parts. 27 and 29. The other day, 9528 showed up here. I am to understand that this is a decker with an ISL9 Cummins engine in it. It hasn't gone into service here yet. 8038 has left the property and I am to understand officially reitred. I haven't had a chance to even think about looking at updating the wiki on this yet.
  12. I wish I could say it was immortal Abby. It has been retired and is sitting in the back corner of the Kelowna lot now. Not sure what broke, but 80 and 97 Flyers as I understand it are on a no fix order. 9709, 9716, 9747 have all be deplated and hauled to the wreckers. We got 9727, 9729, and 9736 sent to us for some unknown reason. Apparently the buses we were supposed to receive at the end of March have now been pushed to the end of the year.
