  1. I think you mean the 2. Used to be part of the 22. I think you mean the 2. Used to be part of the 22.
  2. I didn't notice this before, but it appears that the 116 will be returning to conventional bus operations on weekends and holidays, starting September sheet.
  3. Thanks for posting this update. I'm interested in the nature of the tactical changes being planned for Hastings and 49th. The report also mentions that bus lanes are not being planned for retail-adjacent lanes during the pandemic, presumably to help businesses. But that didn't seem to stop municipalities from converting retail-fronting parking to safe walking/biking space.
  4. Thanks for the clarification. I probably shouldn't post things based on hearsay if I wasn't there.
  5. Apparently a van made an illegal right turn, on a light that had turned red, into the bus loop and hit the shuttle which was turning left. Right at the entrance to the loop. Ultimate choke point.
  6. This should be done with all express routes. It would also help to prevent millions of cases of N19, N17, and N35 "Express" buses.
  7. The backlit signs are actually much better than I expected them to be. They are certainly better than the ones on Main St, and I hope we can see more of them around the system. I also like that buses which have not yet departed the terminus are listed with their scheduled times, rather than minute estimations. On 41st, the stops seem to have been adjusted to separate the R4 stops from other buses as much as possible. This is probably good for the R4, but it puts the local 41 stops quite far from the intersection in some cases (i.e. WB Victoria), and it also makes the "next bus" signs les
  8. I still wish they would make it the N14, and the N22 the N2 lol. If anything the 14 needs more capacity in the evenings before nightbuses start, but I can see why they would swap in trolleys after 3am. Also, interestingly enough the block number for the R4 is now 804.
  9. We can now confirm that RapidBuses will be interlined significantly with NightBuses, which are the opposite of rapid. So much for a strong brand!
  10. The city seems to be warming up to bus lanes and other improvements such as red bus zones. Hopefully they'll take a look at 49th too. I don't think we're quite at the point of "too many buses" on the 49 yet. At rush hours the headway goes down to a minimum of 4 minutes, but at all other times (esp. in the evening) there is a lot more room for improvement. In addition to these suggestions, all door boarding at select stops (like UBC, Cambie, Langara, Metrotown at least) would go a long way.
  11. UBC might be able to pull off charging stations for the 25 and the 33. Might as well start looking at XE60's so that both the 25 and the 49 can use them. Or for the sake of humanity, why not on the 100?
  12. That, and not having all-door boarding on most of them for no good reason.
