  1. Actually they will be 440-471 because winnipeg transit always starts with 0, 1 or 5 with fleet numbers
  2. As of now non if there are any I will post them but I’m hoping in the spring
  3. A factor to why they took a long time to go back to regular from reduced last time is the lack of drivers due to large scale layoffs, if we were going back to reduced I’d expect them to be more aligned with the province’s measures since there’s already a plan in place for different scenarios, not like see as we go type of deal. Also with school winter breaks potentially being extended into January it’s likely that ridership will drop significantly for that period of time which is also a signal transit may need to go to reduced service for that period of time. Schools are a big part of ri
  4. Thompson transit finally has a word about the new cutaway style buses they are purchasing https://www.thompsoncitizen.net/news/thompson/city-buying-two-smaller-transit-buses-that-should-be-ready-for-service-by-spring-2021-1.24188921
  5. 422 entered service on the 48 today
  6. I seen it already, it says practice social distancing non medical masks recommended
  7. 354 is on the 101 tonight 615 is on the 102 tonight
  8. Looks like Saskatoon will be testing out electric buses https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwi8-Jjl2OPqAhWG9Z4KHSEdDsgQ0PADegQICRAH&url=https%3A%2F%2Fsaskatoon.ctvnews.ca%2Fcan-an-electric-bus-survive-a-prairie-winter-saskatoon-transit-aims-to-find-out-1.5034545&usg=AOvVaw0qH2FAwAfpah7uvUe8fL9r
  9. I thought about It but Beaumont station already has enough routes, only if there was a way to go east onto jubilee after the transitway then it can end at Fort rouge station
  10. Not that I know of, it’s actually not that weird I’ve seen things like LACMTA Xn40 and other new flyer demos out on the road
  11. Transit could’ve started preparing a plan for going back to regular service as soon as the province released its plan for reopening and yet they cut service back on the same day phase one of the reopening approaches came into effect, perhaps to start things such as monitoring ridership more closely and take any complaints seriously, as well as a phased approach as I’ve mentioned like problematic routes get their service back while some routes remain in the reduced service. I also question what transit is going to do with all the laid off drivers they’ve recalled back, if it’s not for provid
  12. Also what I think transit means by “increase the number of buses as needed” is to send out fills on discretion of the driver, if a driver didn’t bother to call in a full bus then there might not be a increased number of buses
