  1. No, it's definitely happening in September. https://tripplanning.translink.ca/hiwire?StopDisplay=All&.a=iHeadwaySheet&LineAbbr=282&FormState=iHeadwaySheet&Date=09-08-2018&FromHourDropDown=100&FromMinuteDropDown=40&FromMeridiemDropDown=a&ToHourDropDown=400&ToMinuteDropDown=30&ToMeridiemDropDown=x Weekends only though. Route diagram is currently showing as not found
  2. I checked on the route diagrams page back when those were made public a few days ago, and the 282 definitely existed. It seems all those maps are gone now though...

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Quick follow up on this - 7396 has been confirmed retired, and 7389 is still in service. Has anyone seen 7321 or 7357 sitting around recently? Neither seen service since those dates, but I don't think their retirement status has been confirmed.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    A bit of an obscure change I would like to see implemented one day: Out here where I live in Tsawwassen there is a park/beach called Centennial Beach that is a popular destination for tourists who find themselves out here in the summer beach season, along with locals who can enjoy it year-round (though of course it's usually too cold/rainy when it isn't summer...). It's located fairly close to the Boundary Bay community and as such is served by the C89 regularly and the 601 Boundary Bay during peak hours. However, access to the beach from these routes isn't great as both reasonable ways of getting there (6B Avenue, to the main beach parking lot and facilities, or Centennial Parkway in Boundary Bay itself) are fairly narrow roads without sidewalks, and both are located a fair distance away from the actual bus stops. Because of this, taking transit to the beach does not seem like a pleasant option for families with young children, or anyone with disabilities. My proposal is: during the summer, introduce a variant of the C89 (or 619 in a few weeks) Boundary Bay / South Delta Exchange Via Centennial. Buses would make a quick detour up 6B Avenue directly to the beach's parking lot and facilities to pick up and drop off passengers. It wouldn't add much time to the schedule but would make it much more convenient for people looking to get to the beach by transit. It also wouldn't necessarily have to happen every trip, and certainly not year round, but I think it would be a good boost for tourism as well as general passenger safety.

    Vancouver Special Sightings

    I saw it at about 5pm today, parked on Pender at Granville, lights flashing, no one on board (driver included) and signs off. Wondered if it might have broken down, would have taken a ride if it looked like it was going somewhere anytime soon. Guess they got it going again...
