  1. A police incident involving the use of pepper spray occurred aboard 19524 yesterday evening. https://www.burnabynow.com/local-news/pepper-spray-used-in-a-burnaby-bus-one-person-in-hospital-3216163?fbclid=IwAR1pVsIBfyCp8eyaRAMGg9dvT9xjNWsFRDFT3dMOqAOZ5GpNOQEh7IwsxzM
  2. The 66 FVX may be extended to Lougheed Mall in 2022... https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/bc-transit-fraser-valley-express-lougheed-town-centre?fbclid=IwAR36AItPmMK_5bATNkT1HmQn7PP8z75Iy_9bmF-C0WYHMkUTnZqdkiM302o
  3. That’s a good point; I looked online and I can’t make out any differences. If anyone is able to provide some insight, I’d appreciate it!
  4. Yes, a privately held virtual event open to all 5,800+ members of a prominent local Facebook Group... who are you trying to impress?
  5. With all due respect, why does it matter that you saw it too?
  6. This station probably won’t be a terminus for any bus routes, so I don’t think that’s a concern.
  7. In a way, I like the stacked text because it does display more information, but I think that more specificity could be better achieved by expanding the utilization of different frames (i.e. destination VIA street/location). I think that some people may have a hard time making out the signage now that it’s dramatically smaller. Further, as demonstrated by the 10 showing “Downtown to Waterfront”, I think they need to be more mindful of what these signs display. Even with the 119 showing “Kingsway to Edmonds“, I don’t see it as being of much use to anyone boarding a bus on Kingsway. I think
  8. Maybe if you ask nicely.
  9. On Halloween in 2007, the driver of 2147 was assaulted and the bus was later set on fire. There was a bit of uncertainty about whether or not the bus would be repaired, but it did eventually return to service in 2011 following extensive repairs to a lot of critical electrical components that were damaged by fire and then water. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/vancouver-bus-driver-assaulted-on-halloween-night-1.690636
  10. In response to the two preceding posts, there’s a lot of cities around the world that are confident in the technology. Milan, Paris and Warsaw cumulatively have well over a thousand electric buses on order. I’m sure our four buses present TL/CMBC with a significant learning curve, but it’s just a matter of adapting to the differences. I also think North American manufactures were quite late to start developing this technology, which may explain some of the reliability issues, but if other cities can make it work, why can’t we? Lastly, I think funding for electric vehicles may also be e
