  1. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    I agree that some people would still abstain from utilizing them, but that's a poor excuse to not change anything. As mentioned earlier, a lot of bus stops do not have any garbage cans, and many of those that do are not emptied often enough, which--again--results in people littering. In each of these two scenarios, people are conditioned into throwing garbage on the ground because they have nowhere else to put it and are not used to having a proper means of disposal (even when one is present). For the record, I know this is BS because I--like many others--hold on to my garbage until I find a proper means of disposal... I am purposefully catering to the lowest common denominator in an effort to mitigate this problem.

    More shelters would be nice, but I'm more interested in having a garbage bin at every stop; it's a much cheaper proposition and would promote cleanliness. I am utterly disgusted by how much litter I find at bus stops, especially in otherwise clean residential neighbourhoods. I think North Vancouver's strategy is most commendable with many of their bus stops featuring small pole-mounted bins (it makes a world of a difference).

    That height strip is not there to indicate the height of the doors, but rather as a means of determining the height of people who authorities may be seeking.

    Why would you post this? I don't mean to be antagonizing, but the prefix doesn't change anything (they're not always an accurate reflection of the facility the buses belong to), and we know where all the 12000 series buses are right now.

    BC Transit seems to like them for some reason...
  6. 2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Those were separate clauses.
  7. New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Today at around 14:45, I saw 7180 and 7347 departing the Crane warehouse. Both vehicles travelled northbound on North Road and made a left turn onto Lougheed Hwy (Westbound).
  8. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    I do not believe that the N9 is designated to be served by 40-footers. Historically, the opposite seemed true because all N9s were served by D60LFs. I think they just want vehicles equipped with cameras for the nightbus runs.
  9. I guess this would be a good time to ask what the animosity towards "C" route numbers is about... how are they confusing?
  10. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    They're more decorative than they are functional. I can never fit my backpack up there; I'm not sure what would fit.

    If you acknowledge that these photos are of poor quality, why waste the effort of adding watermarks?
  12. Translink Refurbishments

    If you're going to alter your post to this extent, you should post a note explaining the revision.
  13. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    There is no need to apologize; you're not doing anything wrong. I'm just trying to get you to understand why people may be a bit apprehensive about meeting up. If there are people you already know, I think you'd be better off consulting with them as opposed to trying to establish something new with strangers online.
  14. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    You didn't miss it; there was a formatting error with my post that took me a few minutes to fix. If you want to meet with people from this forum, you should attend transit-related events (TRAMS excursions, the first day of a new route or last day of an outgoing route). Blindly asking to meet with people you don't know is pretty unorthodox and is unlikely to result in success; you'll have to work on establishing some sort of a connection through some other means before people feel comfortable meeting.
