    General Route Discussion and History

    With all of the emphasis (and soon, marketing) on how MAX provides a higher level of service than BRT, it strikes me as quite odd that the routes are numbered right in with the existing BRTs. Especially the 306. Not a fan - I would have thought they'd at least be in the 310s, for example. It looks like schedules can be browsed here, just set the date to November 19. No public release of the new scheduling data yet that I can see.

  6. Hi everyone, As you've probably seen by now, there's an update to the site coming soon, and it's available now to check out. Some of the changes and new features include: Directional arrows on bus icons. Faster map updates. Save up to 5 favourite buses, routes, or blocks to your home page. Block explorer - explore schedules and get a sense of how routes are interlined with one another. Updated fleet pages with direct links to the CPTDB Wiki. Clean and accurate new maps from OpenStreetMaps, replacing Google Maps. (Google Maps reduced their free tier quotas and increased their pricing, and it was not going to be feasible to continue using their services.) The full list of the changes can be found on the home page of each city. A huge thanks to everyone here for continuing to use and support the site ... Please feel free to shoot me a PM here or hit the contact link on the site if you have any thoughts or feedback you'd like to share.

    Some of the stations along the NW part of 16 Avenue are lit up now and they look good. Three strips of bright white lighting on the underside of the canopy. (Like the rendering, but not red.) And yeah, the digital sign at the WB SAIT station now shows real time info for the 19 along with Global News branded weather at the bottom, much like the CTrain signs.

    Option 2 makes the most sense to me too. Intriguing quote from Nenshi in this Global article:

    The new BRT routes are going to be called MAX.
