  1. Lateish reply. With this year's Christmas trip cancelled once again, and the rise of Omicron, I would doubt any fantrips in the immediate future.
  2. A little late but edited. Haven't been too active on the board.
  3. https://seattletransitblog.com/2010/12/10/metro-evaluates-a-modern-trolleybus/ According to this article, the EPU can run for around 1.6km on flat terrain. Not enough to get through all of Broadway, but it's more than a block or two.
  4. While I can't answer the first bit, I believe the official plan was to build it in Langley or Fleetwood/Clayton. Not in Whalley/Scott Road area.
  5. 15 NovaBus LFS-E confirmed on TransLink's Facebook. Will arrive later in 2021, entry into service 2022.
  6. Is it just me, or do I still prefer the graphics on that Samsung TV. They just felt more elegant than the new signs.
  7. Is there any information of the seating layout of these? I'm assuming it'll be the usual 1-2 rows like the Mark III, although I'd love side seats like the MK Is...
  8. From what I heard it's because Surrey will have a bit of a shortage at peak hours with the January service expansions, even with the transfer of the 640. I think TransLink has already witness the disaster that BYD built with the demo unit 1007. Constant breakdowns, from what I recall.... BYD = Build Your Disaster.....
  9. 531 conventional on weekends / 640 to HTC from what I hear It could be completely wrong, don't quote me on this, but I've heard it popping around
  10. I've ridden on quite a couple buses from RTC with interior christmas lights this year... 16102 yesterday comes to mind. Is this like a standard thing?
  11. I've heard trucks with clear Series 50s. It could've been one passing through Vancouver for whatever reason, however they're pretty rare.
  12. No, and I believe once during a SkyTrain delay but don't quote me on that.
  13. Guessing from the spodges of paint on the side and the fact that SkyTrain branding and fleet numbers are covered, I'm guessing it's not a wrap and is actual graffiti
  14. Also, quite temporary. They're supposed to be trolley only, except for limited construction due to repaving at Oakridge.
