  1. That was the only reason they were changed. Bc transit was here in Kelowna looking at them as we were the first to get them and they had it sitting in front of the shop. I hopped on a lost property bike and rode up right in front of them and plunked it on the rack. The round headlights were almost completely blocked. Thus, bikes weren’t permitted after dark on them. They were retrofitted shortly after. I think out east they either don’t have racks or simply never allowed bikes after dark. And yes. Sidneytransitfan is right about community buses. People get angry with drivers all the t
  2. I spent the evening with the driver. They are ok. And the passenger will be fine. It was a nasty crash and we are glad that the driver and his passenger are OK. The drive of the UHaul is being charged.
  3. Let's face it, the whole thing needs a complete rework. I think honestly what should happen is that BC Transit replace what Greyhound abandoned by implementing an intercity transit system using coaches. LInk all of the systems together and have the intercity buses transfer at main terminuses and trasfer people to local service. The tricky part would be in the eastern part of the province to make sure there are connections to Alberta centers and services for them. That is where Greyhound shined and becuase of poor management, failed. but with the price of gas going so far down right now, I
  4. This year has been nuts in Kelowna. You are right about that 9924. I can't believe some of the stuff that we have faced. But really, two of the stories above were not the driver's fault. The other one was the driver trying to protect himself and the public. Just seems that Kelowna is a hot bed for media attention about bus stuff. This stuff happens everywhere else, but it's so commonplace that nobody takes notice of it. Including the media.
  5. They can't just fire a person that admits they have a problem. Human rights case beyond their eildest dreams if they did.
  6. It was done that way to ensure that people weren't just using it to go shopping. I know in the East Kootenay, they had people showing up in Golden expecting to go shopping in Cranbrook for the day, and were turned away because by the time the bus got to other points down the Columbia Valley, the bus would be full with booked passengers. People would get angry and argue with the driver. But it was communicated to people that there was a transit connection to Cranbrook, but not communicated by the right people.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
