    Transit employment threads?

    These can go there too.

    2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    What I suggest you to do is to write directly to TransLink, ask about it, and see for yourself. https://feedback.translink.ca I asked the manager service planner directly (since I already had his e-mail, and he was open to questions), and he said there are two batches of DDs. I asked how many in each batch, and replied 32 in the first one and 25 in the second one. I have taken a few screenshots of the dialogue to prove I am not just making stuff up for fun and games, as my profile picture would suggest. Unfortunately, I had to black out his name for privacy reasons.

    Confirmed by the manager service planner: we are receiving an additional 25 double-deckers on top of the 32 double-deckers at the end of 2019!
  5. I can't express how much I hate these f***n' NIMBYs. All they do is whine and complain and protest, even for stuff that don't even affect them. Seriously, get a life. If that's the case, are the up and arms over the WVMT transit centre? It's in North Van. ================================================================================================================================= CONFIRMED: I have received an e-mail from the manager service planner stating that both the 430 and 301 will be moved to RTC. 430 will move to RTC in September, and the 301 is yet to be determined.
  6. New Flyer has announced TransLink has placed an order for 11 XN60s. https://www.newflyer.com/2018/06/translink-meets-increased-demand-for-sustainable-transportation-in-bc-with-new-flyer/ EDIT: The article has since been corrected to state there are 11 XDE60s on order, not 11 XN60 for Vancouver.
