    Ad-wrap reports

    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?

    Vancouver general sightings and notes

    There is a D40LF parked in the VPD Tactical Training Centre (next to VCC-Clark station); it is visible from the Expo Line whilst traveling eastbound. I was not able to identify it, but I do recall it had a large “S” prefix in the rear window (I think it was numbered in the 7200 range).

    You’re right; it was in fact 15002.

    This is why Surrey can’t (shouldn’t) have nice things. By the way, are you sure it was 7482 that struck the XN40? It looks more like the XN40 took a turn too tight.

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    First world problems. (The 144 is also my home route and I love taking D40LFs to and from school.)

    Rumour has it that the driver of the private vehicle suffered a cardiac arrest, thereby resulting in the collision; they did not survive.

    Follow-up: I live nearby, so I checked it out in person...

  10. I don't think you're going to find too many other people who are as interested in keeping track of licence plate numbers as you are, and even if you do come across somebody with a mutual interest in this, you're going to have an awful lot of difficultly keeping track of 1500+ transit vehicles in a thread like this. Your best bet is to use the fleet roster... contribute what you can to filling in blanks, and if you feel you want to, you can include former licence plate information in the notes section for each bus.
  11. The CPTDB Wiki has a fairly comprehensive inventory of licence plate numbers for each vehicle in our fleet... https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Coast_Mountain_Bus_Company

    It’s a baby blue New Flyer XE60 (apparently the only one in existence).

    2018/2019 Electric Bus Project

    Based on what I know, this appears to be an exaggerated version of what really happened. This incident appears to have occured the night prior to the event, which means that they would have had a mere 12 or so hours to repair the vehicle, which photos indicate to have suffered little to no damage. The only potential damage I observed in the photo of the bus following this incident was a missing curbside mirror, which I suspect may have just been removed as a precaution during transport. If this vehicle did in fact flip “wheels up” (upside down) as you suggested, the damage would be very noticeable, it would not have been featured in the event, and the bus itself would likely be a write-off.

    Every bus has been involved in one accident or another over the years; this occurrence isn't significant enough to document.
