  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 15 NovaBus LFS-E confirmed on TransLink's Facebook. Will arrive later in 2021, entry into service 2022.
  4. Is it just me, or do I still prefer the graphics on that Samsung TV. They just felt more elegant than the new signs.
  5. 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...
  6. 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.....
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. I've heard trucks with clear Series 50s. It could've been one passing through Vancouver for whatever reason, however they're pretty rare.
  10. No, and I believe once during a SkyTrain delay but don't quote me on that.
  11. 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
  12. Also, quite temporary. They're supposed to be trolley only, except for limited construction due to repaving at Oakridge.
  13. That's still construction. Not intended for regular service.
  14. Sea Island Centre seems like an odd choice? Isn't there one right across the street from the south entrance?
  15. I saw 132-232 in service last night.
  16. Thank god. The inbound/outbound thing gets tourists confused a lot, I always see them scrambling to see which platform to go to.
  17. I think there's been a couple people booted for sharing photos from there.
  18. Or... they can attempt to use trolleys on a RapidBus route, like how Seattle tried. It would be interesting to see dual trolley wires on Victoria Drive.
  19. V7438, a Coast Mountain Bus Company 2001 D40LF, is shown newly resurrected from a month-long retirement, on the 33 UBC based out of Vancouver Transit Centre. The unit was brought back due to a shortage of buses caused by one of the heaviest snowfall the Vancouver area has seen in years. 15 Jan 2020 / 29th Avenue Station Please DM me for a photo with a less obstructive watermark
  20. Thoughts on this one? Less snow in the foreground blurring the pic (will put on a better watermark that's less obstructive if uploaded to wiki) Also... not sure where to put this.... I'll throw it here. A credible source has told me that 7290 will be running tomorrow out of VTC. Take this with a grain of salt, but the aforementioned source has told me other information that's turned out to be true in the past.
  21. aren't enough trolleys until the 9 is dieselized for millennium line construction
  22. Is the date wrong on my calendar?
  23. Sadly, from what I hear, that wouldn't work either. Solution: Chop off the back of an XD40, attach the back of the D60LF, and call it a XD60LF
