    OC Bus Spottings

    6381 died in the left turn lane into Lincoln Fields last night around 18:00 or so.
  2. Good job derailing the whole topic. Like it or not, native English speakers or not, the vast majority of people don't read signs. And furthermore, you simply can't put up signs for each of the thousands if not millions of possible languages someone speaks.

    GOA transit news, info etc

    Keeping in mind the original order was for 80 buses, and that was later increased to 82, I guess that confirms the extra two will be part of the first batch.

    Forgot about this spotting from yesterday (11:40 at Carleton): (since it seems to not be visible in the upload, the fleet number is 6384)

    One guess would be that they're considered trucks rather than buses, which isn't too far off. Another would be just because.
  12. Care to prove the allegation that they're removing them intentionally? I'm genuinely curious.

  15. I am reasonably sure the GSP intercom/information system on board the LINTs has GPS, but that it isn't exposed publicly and may not even be compatible with the system used for buses or used at all. I can't find it now, but something made mention of a train's exact location being transmitted to relevant authorities in the event of an emergency.
