  1. Great news for Surrey. The 319 and the 502 have deserved some love for a long time. I just wish they would extend the 96 to White Rock...

    Looks good to me.
  3. Ask them to extend that 80 to Metrotown and have it replace the 146. That would make it a lot more useful to everyone involved. Either that, or just extend the 26 or 29 to the River District and don't create the 80 at all.

    Good work. They've had a hard life.

    Are there any good sources on the 1998 96 fiasco? News articles, etc.? I can't find much on Google.
  6. I'm pretty sure the 319 could use those buses...

    There should be no reclining seats. NO. There will already be little enough leg room. The Orion seats were impossible to sit in for anyone over 6'1".
  8. Let's go to West Van and do a sit in blocking all of the parking spots by camping out in lawn chairs. If anyone waits 15 minutes for a spot (the minimum not having the bus lanes or the extended route to Ambleside would rob the relevant riders daily, who far outnumber the parkers), we will let them in. But as they get out of the car we will crowd them and hit them with backpacks as they walk to their destination so they know a little of the suffering of the proletariat.

    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...

    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.
