    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    I find it curious that these suburban Novas lack the padded bar that wheelchair passengers use to back into and secure themselves (can somebody please fill me in on what this is called?). Every other conventional bus we’ve received since 2005 has had it (including our new BAe hybdrids), but without it, it seems as though the operator will be required to strap in every single wheelchair that comes aboard.

    I take it that some people here aren’t a fan of Voith either, but I’d personally love to see them here... I think they sound amazing. 😍

    A lousy design, nevertheless.

    As far as I understand, the engine in these vehicles is not connected to the drive-axle, it is merely used to generate power for the electric motor (this is why it will turn on and off periodically, even when the bus is in motion).

    You may have a case against the hybrids we received in 2009, but I have not heard any complaints about any of our XDE60s. I have, in fact, heard that they drive drive quite nicely, and the extent of my experience as a passenger leads me to believe that they are adequately powered as well.

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    This is getting more bizarre as time goes on... are they seriously going to wrap all of these green and blue buses in the traditional LFR-Sweep scheme until next year?
  7. This is getting to be ridiculous... can we please stop with these nonsensical responses? Is this thread premature? Maybe, but most of your responses demonstrate that you too lack maturity. This thread will not expire or disappear; let it linger until it is needed.

    I’m curious about the blue patch beneath the driver’s window, but the new headlights look cool.

    Your posts are too incoherent to understand or make sense of what’s going on. Nevertheless, a mechanical fault is not an incident; stuff like this happens dozens of times a day.

    Some of you are way too arrogant and sassy; there's no need for any of this. If something is being discussed in the wrong place, redirect them and be nice about it.

    This is actually progressing pretty quickly... https://globalnews.ca/news/4585096/surrey-skytrain-federal-funding/?fbclid=IwAR1622f9zUVNJmjjLdyVdFcty-ZHAX3Vfy0kXwaq2NYIOYnQ-cKOxPrIIzU

    It’s not just McCallum; Kennedy Stewart is on board as well. I think there’s good potential to revise this plan, even if it takes a while. http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/vancouver-mayor-kennedy-stewart-skytrain-surrey https://biv.com/article/2018/10/vancouver-mayor-supports-surreys-skytrain-pivot

    Awareness = Revenue. It works for charities too, not just businesses.

    That’s a bold claim... can you elaborate on what made you believe this was true?
