  1. Really was hoping they’d be long range, but looks like they’re short range BEB’s... Marpole TC seems rather unnecessary but if we can’t find a location on the NS, I understand the need for it. No more diesel buses past 2023? I’m assuming that doesn’t include hybrids, but afaik translink/cmbc have stated recently that suburban orders will continue to be diesel. Also, does that mean WV will start getting hybrids, or do they plan on transferring more of the XD40s and then replacing the depot with a new one in the future capable of hybrids or BEB’s? Im aware that CNG is now the cheapest option, but diesel is universal in our system, and doesn’t cost much more (~$450k). BEB’s cost over $1m per unit if I’m not mistaken. I’m aware there are grants and subsidies, but how much of the total cost do they cover? (And that’s excluding the charging infrastructure) You could run the most inefficient, polluting 2 stroke engine you can get your hands on, but if it’s transporting dozens of people who’d otherwise be taking cars, it’s still a net positive in term of the environment factor. I don’t want to come off as someone who completely opposes electric buses, because I am not, but considering the extra cost and infrastructure required, not to mention all the requirements on the maintenance side, is it really the best use of money during a period in which a priority is spending money wisely?
  2. There isn’t, nor has there ever been a CMBC revenue vehicle with that fleet number.
  3. 14013 Doordash 16013 Regency Med, drivers side only
  4. Go to Bridgeport around 4pm on any weekday
  5. Both lines are returning to regular service as of 11:05. Shuttle train was setup between Lougheed and Braid, no M-Line service past Lougheed.
  6. Spotted 7 BCT XN40s in Port Kells on Wednesday afternoon, and saw one of the new Arboc shuttles travelling westbound on Highway 1 right after
  7. Noooo thank you. That’s the problem with going ‘Emily Carr Station’ I’ve realized that if you leave off University, as well as GNW, people are going to think the station is named after her, not the school, which will be a problem down the road. People will start wanting more stations named after historical figures, and then that will bring with it the shitstorm that is arguing about which historical figure passes the “inclusivity and diversity nonsense that seems to come with any historical figure at any mention of the name. Not to mention the fact that a “David Suzuki Station” isn’t helpful in knowing what street that station serves. Either ‘Great Northern Way Station’ or ‘Emily Carr University Station’ anything else is too long, or not descriptive enough
  8. Pick one, not both. Great Northern Way Station OR Emily Carr (University?)Station both work.
  9. Agreed. Great Norther Way - Emily Carr is far too long. As for stations like Surrey Central? I think it’s quite obvious why those stations don’t have the university name attached, and that is because they aren’t the main campuses.
  10. Good, was very confused about those trips being 509s, glad they aren’t.
  11. Correct, for those 4 trips only. The other trips remain the same.
  12. 4 trips added to the 509, however they follow the 562’s routing. To Langley Centre: 8:05 from Carvolth Exchange 15:19 from Trattle/88th (57246) To Carvolth Exchange: 8:06 from Langley Centre 15:21 from Trattle/9000 Block (57248)
