  1. Vancouver used to be nice like that - no need to specify the route. But in 2016, they changed it so it's like ours: https://buzzer.translink.ca/2016/08/some-tweaks-to-the-next-bus-sms-service/ I seem to recall them citing reasons of excessive strain on the telecom infrastructure or something not-entirely-convincing-but-I-don't-know-enough-to-reject-it like that.
  2. When it says something needs to be 'Control Authorized', is that hardwired/coded in or does that just mean you need to ask for permission?
  3. Spruce Meadows Classic hits the news! https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/spruce-meadows-bus-finds-afterlife-as-vintage-relic-in-toronto
  4. Friend's wedding chartered a Southland bus to take attendees to/from Somerset station - was originally supposed to be a classic white school-style bus, so was a bit disappointed we got this guy instead. I make no apologies for the drunken end-of-night shot.

    Scout 2101

    Scout was out today! Spotted southbound Brentwood at around noon. No stopping at the station either, just blasted on through.
  6. In the time it takes for you to take your phone out, the fare would've either doubled or be 50% off!
  7. It's Stampede, so of course they'd take her out! For some reason, I've never noticed there's no second door - did they remove it or was that as-built?
  8. Looks like one of the new Nova CNGs was involved in an accident today:
  9. Well, Nuuk, really, population ~16,000. No public transit elsewhere on the island. Was there for two days in May and thought I'd take some bus shots for you all. The crappy interior phone shot is from one of their older vehicles, a high-floor unit with low-floor luggage storage in the rear - took it from city centre to the airport.
  10. A pair of Blue line trains immediately after each other at around 2:30 am last night. Was there a delay at some point? Meanwhile, GMaps said there was a Red Line train heading to Tuscany for around the same time, but never showed up to my platform (7th st).
  11. Spotted this wrap and thought it was quite handsome...at least, it would be if I had got my lens on in time and had the correct exposure setting!
  12. Following up on the Council meeting, engineers seem to have decided definitively that tunneling under the Bow is technically too dangerous, and that a bridge will have to be implemented: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/green-line-tunnel-bridge-1.5195297
  13. And for many users, it'll add an extra transfer, which is quite inconvenient when you have luggage. For example, my quickest route to the airport from near the UoC is the 20 to 78th Ave Terminal and then the 300. The 300 portion takes around 20 minutes. The new connection would require transferring onto the Green Line and then again onto the airport connection (unless they extend the 20 all the way to the airport connection) - all of which will require waiting time in addition to the physical inconvenience of hauling luggage. It might get to the point where the time savings are nullified for existing 300 users.
  14. Since the doors are redone, does that mean the reflector-based sensor at the bottom of the doorways is no longer used?
