  1. 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?
  2. That, and not having all-door boarding on most of them for no good reason.
  3. I'm still trying to figure out whether RapidBuses will be interlined with Nightbuses as the B-Lines currently are. My guess is that yes they will be, unfortunately. Any info on this would be appreciated.
  4. You see, these should honestly be sent to Surrey to ensure there are no 40 footers on the 96. Just 2 would probably do the trick.
  5. It's a little disappointing that they aren't rebranding the 99 at the same time, if only because the 99, as the representative B-Line, will still maintain higher frequencies throughout the week than all of the RapidBus routes, implying that RapidBus lines are worse than B-Lines despite the rebranding. Nothing, probably not even priority lanes, beats frequency, and the 99 is still going to beat the rest at that. Also, the 99 might be losing its air conditioning. 😛
  6. Besides all of those important points, the "air conditioning" also functions "to specifications", meaning the interior of the car feels like your bathroom after a long hot shower with the door closed and the fan turned off.
  7. I'll be waiting for an R9 UBC / Downtown via Broadway and Burrard, to replace the 44.
  8. Unless someone can tell me a good reason why it has to be this way, I think booking out anything but artics on the 96 at this point is just complete carelessness towards the customer experience in Surrey. It's time SoF got a fair deal on vehicle allocation, not to mention service hours.
  9. TBH, I think the "South Granville Station" should be renamed "Fairview Station" to avoid ambiguity (for the same reason as Mount Pleasant Station) and "Fairview-VGH Station" to "Oak St-VGH" or something along those lines. People are accustomed to being dropped off at Heather by the 99; they should know that the new station stops right at Oak St and is the appropriate place to transfer to the 17.
  10. Are they implementing stopping procedure changes at all (i.e. 502 doing express service) in the September sheet?
  11. Two things I have managed to glean about the September changes without having Nname's database skills: -The N10 and N15 will not yet be changed as per the SFATP consultation. No night-long airport service yet. -The 246 will be split (renamed) into the 246 and the 249, the latter running between "the top of the hill" and Lonsdale Quay.
  12. I have a feeling they'll be back once RapidBus happens. They're going to need some artics that aren't green...
  13. The Orions are the ugliest vehicles whatsoever in Metro Vancouver. Usually the problems come with too much effort resulting in unprofessional, inconsistent paint schemes. Standardizing with charcoal is not a bad idea, even with the new blue roof fairings.
