    CTrain Station Renovations

    Only caught a brief glimpse today but it looked nice. I'm a bit surprised they picked that station as the place to start, ACAD will have a new name soon and then the signs will be out of date.

    I could be wrong, but 'Not in Service' seems to show up when the car is on training and the interior signs are showing normal station info - possibly it's used for training to simulate revenue service? And 'Out of Service' is used the rest of the time. Not really sure - but I know I've seen both messages on series 8s before, and that seems to have been the difference between the two. ...not that they couldn't have changed every instance of 'Out of Service' to 'Not in Service' with the new programming.

    General BRT discussion

    Looks like there are queue jumps now being installed at Heritage Dr / Blackfoot Tr SE in both directions, along with an extra lane extending quite a ways back. EB BRT station at Deerfoot Meadows looked to be going in near the northwest corner of the Superstore. Funny you mention that - the new crossing at 6 Ave SW seems to have used a similar red concrete as the bus queue jump at NB 36 St / 16 Av NE.

    Don't think there's a rule against it/I've never had any issues. Asking the driver to turn the a/c on has always been successful for me too.

    I was actually going to ask if those were still there but I forgot. Good to know. Thanks!

    Nope 😐. But they did split up the announcements at the last stop downtown so info on which direction the train is headed plays with the 'next stop' announcement instead of having everything play when you're pulling in to the stop. Annoys me how fragmented the line names still are. The doors on the series 8s used to do that - not sure if they still do with the other changes they've made to how the doors work on the SD160s. But I agree. The series 9s in particular can be ridiculous - just standing in the general vicinity of the door sometimes causes them to recycle.

    Awesome, good accessibility improvement. Hopefully they rerecorded some of the other lines to include 'blue line' and 'red line' too?

  10. Hi everyone, As anyone who has ever applied to be a Wiki editor probably knows, our old application process left much to be desired. Turnaround times could be quite long, and if you weren't accepted, you were left wondering why, or if anyone had even seen your post. We're introducing a new system to remedy these issues. Starting now, you can visit the new 'Applications' forum to apply. We'll get back to you within a week, and we'll share info with you on why we came to the decision we did. In addition, please give a warm welcome to our two new Wiki moderators - @Articulated and @Cappy! They'll be helping out with the new application process in addition to helping keep the Wiki itself running smoothly. If you applied in the old thread after July 1, 2017, your name is in for consideration and we'll get back to you by August 11. Everyone else is welcome to apply again. Thanks!
  11. We've just fixed an issue on the Wiki related to special characters. While we believe everything is 100% functional, there may be some pages with issues. If you encounter any problems, please let us know here. Thanks for your patience while we worked to resolve the issue.
  12. Submit any photos you'd like to have featured on the main page of the CPTDB and CPTDB Wiki. We're looking for the best and most interesting transit photographs. Simply post your picture as a reply in this thread. Or, if you've already uploaded your photo to the wiki, leave a link to that page. Please include a few words about your photo to help us with a description should we choose your picture. A few notes: all members are welcome to post we might PM you to get the original image file if your picture is chosen (the forum scales down images) please limit your submissions to 1-2 good quality photos per week photos must be your own we're happy to credit you, but if you don't want your name on the main page, we're also happy to leave it out after their week on the main page, photos are moved to the archive
  13. Welcome to the new CPTDB Forum and Wiki! As you can see, some things look and function differently. We're now running on a new, faster server, and the latest version of both the forum and wiki software, each of which offer numerous new features, upgrades, bug fixes, and security improvements. As before, how you login to the forum and wiki has changed. To login to the forum, you now use your display name (what is shown next to your posts). To login to the wiki, you now use your original forum username. To gain access to the wiki, you may need to reset your password, which can be done from here. Some elements of forum posts, like quotes, links, and emoticons may not currently display correctly. This should resolve itself over the next few days as older posts are processed and updated. Additionally, some pages on the Wiki may load slowly while thumbnails are regenerated - this should only happen once per page. Let us know what you think! Feel free to post or PM me if you encounter any issues with the new site or with logging in. Thanks!
  14. Blurb and renders from http://www.calgarytransit.com/StationRenovations Looks like a fairly similar upgrade to what was done at Whitehorn although on a smaller scale (concession stand not removed, elevator not repositioned).
