  2. 2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Just got an e-mail from the Manager of the Service Planning department regarding the orders. Officially confirmed there will be 153 NFI XN40s, of which will be split between STC and HTC. Aparrently, the 104 Nova Bus LFS hybrid order is still being determined what depot(s) they will run out of. There will be 23 Nova Bus LFS suburbans, all of which will be running out of RTC.

    TransLink is ordering XD40s as well?

  5. Modifying a page title

    Hi, Could you please rename https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Coast_Mountain_Bus_Company_route_C84_'English_Bluff_/_South_Delta_Recreation_Centre' and https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Coast_Mountain_Bus_Company_route_C89_'Boundary_Bay_/_South_Delta_Recreation_Centre' to C84 'English Bluff / South Delta Exchange' and C89 'Boundary Bay / South Delta Exchange' Reason: The official northern terminus for the C84 and C89 is called South Delta Exchange, not South Delta Recreation Centre. Thank you

    15018 has been transferred to STC as of the 21st.
  11. Ad-wrap reports

    That is not an ad-wrap. An ad-wrap is when the entire bus (except for the fleet numbers and the front) is wrapped, covering the entire livery. Examples: Photo courtesy: UpLift_Vancouver from Flickr Photo courtesy: Ricky Ruan from Flickr

    But the thing is, 1008 and 1009 are demo buses owned by ADL, so it would make sense ADL would want to have one bus a 380 hp unit, and another a 330 hp unit, therefore when transit agencies test them out, they would have a better idea what kind of engine specifications they need if they decide to order. The same theory could apply as to why 1008 has cloth covered reclining seats and the standard flooring, while 1009 has wood flooring and non-reclining vinyl seats.

    It seems TransLink has stopped swapping the double-decker between PCTC and RTC. 1008 has been at RTC since the 5th and 1009 has been at PCTC since the 5th as well. Although I presume 1009 still goes back to RTC to re-fuel and get serviced?
