    Pretty neat! Love seeing stuff like this.

    Random Photos - Calgary and Area

    Yeah, speakers on the Arbocs have been being taped over for years now. I'm pretty baffled and disappointed it's still an ongoing issue.

    Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    Happened to find this at the siding adjacent to Dartmouth Rd last night:
  5. Thanks for letting me know - unfortunately that's something HSR will need to fix on their side. On the topic of Hamilton - it seems the schedule info for the December 30 changes isn't available yet so only live bus locations with no trip/schedule info are showing. I've let them know and will try to get it fixed as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience!

    Real time signs have have started to go in at MAX Orange stations (at least in the northeast).

    Calgary Transit

    Unfortunately not - only buses logged in & with schedule attached show up online. It's also unfortunate because it means they won't appear on the real time signs at the MAX stations.

    2016 Grande West Vicinitys

    Heard from Chris Cassidy that 1625, 1627, 1630, 1632, and potentially others are back at the Grande West facility in Aldergrove, BC.

    I rode the first MAX Purple into downtown this morning. It took about 6 minutes longer to make it through the transitway than the schedule indicates - and that was with generally fast station stops and not having to stop at one of the stations. Lots of red lights, including a couple where it was a pretty lengthy wait (26 St SE and 19 St SE). Glad they're aware of the issues and are working on getting them fixed. That said, it was still a fun ride. I love the stations and ROW along 17th, and getting to fly over Deerfoot at 80km/h was great. A+ indeed! This evening I rode MAX Orange from 31 Street to Saddletowne. It felt like a pretty quick ride, despite a 6 minute wait at Rundle - I love how direct it is. I can see how it would feel painfully slow if you're always under the speed limit though. I also rode a U2 with an entire bank of ads promoting MAX Purple - great to see marketing for the service.

    Some photos of 44 Street Station taken tonight. Help phone Signage which matches the new CTrain wayfinding with the colour block (would've liked to see the MAX bus icon incorporated into these too) Real time signs Swung by tonight because I was curious and was about to post the same thing, haha! There does seem to be a small parking zone between the two bus zones (as indicated by a new 'Bus Zone Ends' sign I guess) but there are no actual parking signs so I could see this spot being a bit of a problem. I'm not sure it's going to be worth the hassle just to preserve parking for a couple cars. I like the location of the stop though - much nicer waiting area than where I had assumed it would be (nearside Stephen Ave). Side note - the stop number on both of the signs in your pic (4309) is wrong and instead corresponds to a route 55 stop on Falconridge Drive.

    Real time signs now active at most of the MAX Purple stations, and glass has started to go in for the shelters. I noticed the station at the Blackfoot Diner is called 9th Avenue SE in the schedule data but 19 Street SE on the maps in the Rider's Guide. Anyone know what the actual signs on it say?

    Most of the stations along 17 Ave SE are lit up now. Cabinets for the real time signs have started to go in. Located at the 'end' of the platform next to the emergency exits. Same style as the sign at SAIT.
