    2018 SkyTrain Procurement

    Agree, this one looks quite unprofessional.

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    The biggest immediate bookout problem I can see is that BTC's 99 and 95 blocks, as well as Surrey's 96 blocks, are almost always interlined with nightbuses. Do we really want the nightbuses to be in RapidBus livery? They are basically the opposite of rapid. But there aren't enough (or late enough) 44 and 49 blocks to interline with all the nightbuses that need artics. It wouldn't be acceptable to use 40' buses on most of these routes just because that would be more convenient for bookouts.

    It looks like a really intense ad wrap for some anime...

    LOL, what an arduous journey!

    Switch to artics and add frequency on the 502, as they did on the 49. People should be satisfied. And it's not so hard to paint bus lanes temporarily. The only sad thing is the RapidBus livery roll-out might get even screwier in terms of bookouts.

    In that case I would rather it just go straight up/down Marine from 70th and Granville, with a stop at Dunbar Loop.

    Never trust a lifted pickup. Much worse than a supercar with an N.

    I for one am happy about this. They'll be able to extend the 96 to White Rock, get traffic priority measures in place (the most important element for any improvement), and build out the Skytrain.

    What I'm wondering is how soon the D(E)60LFR's and the other XDE60's are going to be repainted. If they do this rebranding they'd better do it right and not have half the buses in the old colours for another 8 years. I also hope we don't end up seeing these booked out on non-B-Lines, as that would entirely defeat the point. The point with branding is to be consistent and not allow for a huge ugly lag.
