  2. Some of the downtown stations are getting new PA speakers - at least City Hall, 1 Street, and 7 Street have been done. Significantly louder and clearer than before. Big upgrade IMO.
  3. It's currently on 10 St SW just south of 7th Avenue! Pretty cool surprise going by there this afternoon.
  4. CMLC posted a timelapse of the first 3 months of construction on Twitter:
  5. This is very impressive. Great read, thanks for all your work -- not just on keeping a piece of history alive but meticulously journaling its story along the way. Awesome stuff Nick.
  6. Schedule information for the fall signup is now loaded into T55.
  7. https://www.calgarytransit.com/content/transit/en/home/news/the-upass-returns.html I noticed the app got a small visual update too.
  8. Announcement at Oliver Bowen tomorrow afternoon with the Prime Minister and Mayor.
  9. https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1917640771962/ Video of an XD40 driving through some flood water edit: longer version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSDodgtNwKU
  10. Nice catch! Excellent shots.
  11. Some fairly up-to-date ridership info (and a couple other interesting stats!) in a slide from today's SPC on Transportation and Transit meeting: https://pub-calgary.escribemeetings.com/FileStream.ashx?DocumentId=167536 (page 5)
  12. For anyone interested, service data for Stampede (and beyond) is now available in block explorer.
  13. I like the giant new LED panels at 1st Street Station...
  14. UCalgary and the city are piloting UPass on My Fare this summer: https://www.ucalgary.ca/ancillary/parking/springsummer-2021-upass

  16. Tires On The Run have some additional pics (and interior shots!) of their ElDorado: https://www.facebook.com/pg/TiresOnTheRunCanada/photos/?tab=album&album_id=258545301287779
  17. I didn't realize, but CT have actually been supplying some basic route information for these buses, so Transit55 now displays that, and you can see a list of other "added" trips here: https://transit55.ca/calgary/addedtrips Peak period trips only, I believe, so there's nothing showing on the site tonight and probably won't be until tomorrow morning - but the functionality should be ready to go.
  18. I checked the CT website again, and it looks like their tools have the updated schedules now. I didn't take a close look but I see additional peak hour trips showing for routes like the 2 and 3.
  19. Free transit for those getting their shot at the TELUS Convention Centre!

  21. @BCT-3122-D800-10240 identified the bus in this movie trailer (just a heads up: violent scene and there's a loud four letter word uttered) as ex-Brandon #65, which was originally CT #7528. Thought it looked familiar... Slightly longer version and a behind-the-scenes video with an exterior shot of a different (ex-Lethbridge Transit) D40LF.
