    Vancouver Special Sightings

    After @MCW Metrobus BOing 9271, it now has mismatched doors.
  2. I kinda want a complete redesign of Richmond shuttle routes... Some of them are really pointless, some of them go really out of their way to serve an existing service area. For example, the C94. Minoru is one block from No. 3 Road, and Elmbridge is barely a block from Westminster. It's completely unnecessary. Meanwhile, there are places with significant job numbers/residents barely served. River Road. Works Yard. Seafair.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    What do you you think would happen if you took the 3.5 billion dollars for the Massey Bridge project and gave it to TransLink? BRT to White Rock anyone? SkyTrain to UBC? SRY ROW refurbishment to Langley/beyond? New WCE? Large increase in bus service?

    Vancouver general sightings and notes

    I saw it from the Canada Line, saw the fleet number, and just assumed it was repainted.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    The existing ROW goes through multiple population centres in Surrey. I'd prefer something like: Underground through Downtown, into the Grandview Cut, and along BNSF to New West. All trains as a express service. Connect with the SRY, have express and standard trains through this area, with many stations. Branch off, elevate along Highway 10, and 56th St, through Langley Centre. Or as a alternative, cut and cover it. Back on the ROW along Highway 10, and turn onto a median line through Hwy 1.

    Where would these go?
  12. After asking many operators, they all seem to say the 41st B Line is going to RTC.
  13. From what I've heard from OPs yes

    We don't get those in BC. Instead we get thrice a day embassy harrassment calls.
