  1. Brand new 35’ vicinity #4465 in Squamish. Im guessing there will be another soon if the plan is to replace Darts 9083 and 9084

    Whistler Transit

    According to Nextride, Whistler has put Nova 9415 in service again
  3. The 2 D40lf’s on flatbeds i saw going to Whistler earlier in the week are 9818 and 9820. Also added in up there in the last few weeks for storage are 9756, 9064 and a couple other 35ft darts that i couldnt see the numbers of. Also i mentioned a while back that i didnt see 9905 up there but it’s there parked amongst the other darts and d40lf’s
  4. The current plan for the Sea to Sky if everything goes smoothly is starting September 2019 BC Transit will be introducing a new route between Squamish and Vancouver, re-implementing the route between Squamish and Whistler and expanding the current 99 between Whistler and Pemberton to connect all communities in the region. The routes will have 6 round trips on week days and 4 round trips on weekends
  5. Just spotted 2 non A/C 1998 D40LFs on flatbed trucks heading north on the Sea to Sky Highway just south of Squamish, wasnt able to get the numbers since they came up quick around a corner and i was driving rhe other way but they looked like 981x. I’ll see if i can see the numbers when im in whistler this weekend since thats likely where they’re headed. On another note Squamish now has its 3rd 2018 arboc #2672
  6. According to T-Comm, 8104 is in service on the 95 B-Line so it looks like the West Van D60lfr’s have gotten their old numbers back

    Went past the garage up in whistler this morning and noticed theres been more buses added to storage aswell as some that have disappeared. Vehicles there were all the buses i noted that left squamish a few weeks ago (however i didnt see 9905 there) aswell as D40lf’s 8099, 8110, 9753, 9754, 9755, and 9816. Nova 9415 is also still up there parked undercover with the XN40s and Nova suburbans

    They sound to me like they are ISL-G when comparing to Surreys new XN40’s with the L9N though im not 100% sure
  9. Yes both 9083 and 9084 are still active
  10. Some pretty big changes coming to the transit system up here in Squamish September 4 with routes 1 and 2 getting minor routing changes, a brand new route 9 Quest University and a redesigned route 4 which will be renamed to 4 Garibaldi. Theres also been a number of fleet changes aswell. There is now a brand new 30’ vicinity #4073. Darts 9905, 9053, and 9062 are no longer here aswell as arboc 2314 which was replaced by a brand new arboc #2667. 2673 has also just arrived

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Its hard to say, i know whistlers getting 3 buses for expansion this winter though i dont know if it will mean 9750 or any of the other stored d40lfs will be put into service or if it will be new buses

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Last time i was in whistler around a month ago 9750 (ex cmbc 7104) was still around in storage there aswell
  13. Darts 9053 and 9062 have moved from Abbotsford to Squamish
  14. I was up in whistler today and 9415 still remains up there and has been brought back into service up there over the last few days. I also saw 9413 being driven by a mechanic a few weeks ago but i didnt see it at the yard or in service today so it may be back in victoria now too
  15. Did another walk past of the whistler garage today and there have been more d40lfs transfered up there for storage. The #s of the stored buses are 8110, 8114, 9705, 9750, 9753-9755, and 9816. And on a seperate not arboc 2314 was transfered to squamish last month for the handydart service expansion
