  1. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    Does that mean RTC will operate the double decker runs on the 301 and 555 then?
  2. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    They will arrive around the end of October to early November, and will enter revenue service about 2–3 weeks after they arrive.
  3. 2015 Community Shuttle Order

    It entered service on the 11th.
  4. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    TransLink is not going to move around a bunch of buses "just for a change." TransLink will only move the necessary amount of buses to adequately serve the transit centres around the Lower Mainland.
  5. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    While looking at 8063's assignment history, it was aparrently transferred to BTC on the 24th of September, and then it was inactive, until yesterday, when it was transferred back to RTC.
  6. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    The Canada Line announcement for Broadway-City Hall now also announces the connection for the 99 B-Line. Not sure if the Waterfront Station announcement for the Canada Line now anounces the 95 B-Line connetion, though.
  7. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    So that means the double deckers won't run on the other Orion RTC runs, such as the 311, 352, 601, 602, 603, 604, 606 and 608? I find it weird if that's the case, as TransLink is limiting the chance to test the double deckers on as many highway routes as possible. After all, that's the whole point of the trial...
  8. Collisions and Incidents thread

    I'm not sure if the XD40s ever made an appearance on the 49 last year, but 16115 being on the 49 today is certainly not the first time an XD40 was on the 49. Since the 49 was transferred back to RTC, there is usually one 40-foot bus on the 49 during peak periods, normally an XD40.
  9. Vancouver Special Sightings

    12018 on the 601 right now. 9249 was doing this particular block, and I assume it had problems, so I guess they moved 12018 off of the 620, and put it on the 601 to replace 9249. https://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus?busId=12018 Update: 9249 has returned to service doing the same block it was taken off of, and 12018 has returned to the same 620 block it was doing previously.
  10. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    The next service boost for buses will be January 2018.
  11. So then that's a 2 year wait then...
  12. You know it's only going to be rolled out in January 2019? So there's still a year and a half before the 41st B-Line being implemented...
  13. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Probably ever since this was announced. They removed the barrier on 16140 due to 16140 having a different barrier than the one that was chosen (the barrier on 16101).
  14. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    I figured that it was some sort of height trial when I saw 7190 earlier today coming into Tsawwassen with wood planks set above it. I presume it will run on all the routes that the double deckers will be running on.
  15. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    So that means STC is getting by with only 8 orions in service...
