    2019 Garage Transfers

    16133 and 16137. Even still, RTC has gained more than 2 LFSs since all the D40LFs left/retired, so there seems to be somewhat of an expansion taking place

    2001 Orion V Retirement

    I mentioned that on the Tcomm discord the other day - was looking into it, excluding 9223 there were 22 reported Orion retirements. Adding 9223 would make sense for direct replacements by the 23 Nova Suburbans. If anyone can confirm that it has been retired or scrapped, that'd be good.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    One option would be to run conventional buses on the 404 during peak hours, and during off-peak have the shuttles from the 416 switch over to the 404. Keeps the deadheading to a minimum since the shuttles are gonna be there anyways. But also... compared to some of the other places HTC shuttles go, getting to Brighouse/Riverport isn't that bad. Closest to HTC is of course the New West and southern Burnaby routes, but the northern Burnaby/Downtown/UBC/Tsawwassen routes almost certainly involve more deadheading than anything in Richmond Edit: also, my most frequent time for taking the 404 is Saturday mornings. Usually gets to around 1/3 to 1/2 full

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    If they ever add full access between River Road (Ladner side) and Hwy 99, I could see them re-extending the 404 back to Ladner, but send it towards town centre rather than the exchange. Based on SWATP there's a eventually going to be a bridge the 618 would use to cross Hwy 99 on River Road which could maybe result in full on/off ramps, plus they suggested making the town centre more of a transfer point since it's more convenient for people.
