    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    @MCW Metrobus did nothing. You just convinced yourself that route training was a route and blamed him for your fault.

    0, especially the last one, since that was sold to St. Albert Transit in SK.

    I mean the 60 footers... Though it appears this discussion is in the wrong thread; sorry about that.

    I would go to Cullen to try to confirm with my zoom lens... But won't be in Van for the next week... They're usually parked in the locked up bay area, correct?

    I have no idea which one it is. I just remember seeing a luggage rack on the 99.

    Hurry, someone check! There may be a potential after 8066 was transfered...

    For this contract, we are bidding with our clean and efficient UTC CN40XR buses. These have the reliable and fuel-saving UTC TN-280 engines and UTC T-1400 transmissions, or may be equipped with any standard combination. These buses are light and fuel efficient, saving up to 35% over our competitors. Summary: 10 UTC CN40XR - UTC TN-280/UTC T-1400 - C$435,000/bus With our D60XR, D40XR and DE40XR line of buses, we believe our buses are the best for this contract. Our diesel buses by default come with UTC T series engines and UTC Transit series transmissions, and our hybrid buses coming with Cummins B6.7/L9 and BAE Hybridrive combinations, we believe our buses save you time, and money. Light, low maintenance and fuel efficient, our buses are great for any city. Summary: 20 D60XR/DE60XR - UTC T-330/UTC T-1800 OR Cummins L9/BAE Hybridrive - C$450,000 for diesel, C$515,000/bus for hybrid 10 D40XR/DE40XR - UTC T-280/UTC T-1400 OR Cummins B6.7/BAE Hybridrive - C$350,000/bus for diesel, C$415,000/bus for hybrid 20 D40XR - Cummins L9 OR UTC T-280/ZF EcoLife 6AP1400B - Hybrid also available - C$335,000/bus In this case, we believe a hybrid vehicle would be a better option. It saves fuel while not being significantly more expensive in cost. However our diesel lineup is also very strong and already very fuel efficient over existing buses; up to 35% All these buses do come with our intelligent SmartBus™ system, allowing NextBus tracking and intelligent communication. They also come with our premium 10 year warranty.

    In the middle of the street for a quick unload/load no layover stop?

    What about along Cambie? Going NB IMO there is space. And you could move 100 EB traffic out of the loop with a bay along Marine going EB. Even if it's shortened to Marine you could loop it around and layover it really anywhere.

    The most I'd see is maybe some trolley extensions down to Kent for more layover room and a few on street bays.
