  1. RapidBus is a combination of 2 things. 1- I really doubt that the people that work in the branding/marketing departments, and really anyone who works at Translink actually takes transit. They don’t understand how established the B-Line brand is already 2- Someone in the marketing department decided for some reason that everything needs a rebrand, and thus we got RapidBus. This is not a sports team, the B-Line branding and identity didn’t need a change, yet here we are. I’d imagine once the art wraps come off people will be so confused, the rapidbus branding wont be on any future orders, but sadly we will still have 63 attics that will carry this garbage look for at least 8-9 years

    Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    They could take the SFPR and start their runs at Carvolth
  3. 152 Absolutely 10000% never going to happen. 156/159 Unlikely but could on late night trips 183 Conventional Service should be longer 191 Should be during off peak until Burke Mountain is populated enough to require Conventional Service, which shouldn’t happen for a while. Peak hour should continue to use Conventional to relieve the 188 No. Perhaps reducing frequency and splitting it at Moody Centre is a better option. The Kootenay-Moody portion could possibly be served by shuttles, but the Moody-Poco needs 40’, but at 20-30 minute frequency rather than the 15 it has now.

    Surrey Rapid Transit / Surrey Light rail

    He’s literally trying to replace LRT with SkyTrain and BRT. I don’t know how he hates transit if this was one of his his key campaign issues. People change. He may have been like this his last go around, but not this time.

    See kids, this is why you don’t put your bag on the seat.
  12. I’m pretty sure the 132 hasn’t been updated either

    Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    This ain’t it chief
  14. This has to be a test for the double deckers or something. It would be stupid to make a new B-Line livery and not have it be orange.
