  1. From what I heard they will eventually get rid of school charters completely and go with a network that everyone can use
  2. I’m not even sure if they are actual roll signs or just cards because both of those buses had electronic signs
  3. I can sort of see remains of the numbers 64 and 141 on those buses which indicate which exact unit they were, I’m not too sure if they are used for a movie but I will be going back soon and taking a close look at them
  4. I’m thinking the older one is from Calgary and the newer one is from Lethbridge although I could be wrong
  5. Spotted some D40lfs at a lot by church and hutchings, the one on the left seems to be a early 90s model as seen from the headlights, both of them are painted in a Calgary style livery but the colours of the stripes aren’t Calgary colours, if anyone knows who they used to belong to and what they are for now please comment below
  6. Winnipeg transit 142 is seen on route 14 ellice to ferry road as the 2019 Santa bus, this is the third year that this unit has been wrapped for Santa bus
  7. Recently noticed that the front sign of route 68 is off center and misspelled cresent instead of crescent, I’ve only seen that on the outbound 68s while the signs on the inbound 68s are perfectly fine, does anyone know why that is
  8. Forgot to mention that 489 is retired and that there are no more buses with WiFi as they’ve been removed Also would someone mind adding this photo to the wiki:
  9. can someone please update the wiki with the following information: 402, 408, 423, 433, 448 retired as of September 409 is still around sitting at a compound in fort garry industrial park 425 has been converted to ideas in motion bus as of april 2019 and renumbered 9425 448 is used for fire department training 938 has been refurbished on route 160 page: route 160 is primarily a 60ft route and uses new flyer d60lf and xd60
  10. Something interesting I noticed today while biking along the transitway today is that chevrier and Clarence stations aren’t very far apart but the speed limit between them is still 80km/h, I don’t think buses will be reaching that speed before having to slow down so I don’t get why they decided to make 80km/h the speed limit. something else I noticed is that there was a random car parked on the transitway itself by Beaumont station and there was a supervisor called, maybe someone took a wrong turn or didn’t know they weren’t allowed to park there, with all the at grade intersections along the phase 2 transitway I wonder If there’s gonna be any wrong turns made by drivers given the absence of no turn signs at those intersections.
  11. A sunlong SLK6101UBEVN1 operated by Pudong Shangnan transit of the Shanghai bus group is seen on tunnel inter district line 3
  12. After looking at the schedule for the 16, I found that transit did a really bad job with scheduling the 16 during rush hour. Between 3PM and 6PM there are 11 16s that end at Kingston row and only 10 16s that go to island lakes and plaza drive, the headways between the 16s that go to island lakes during rush hour is about every 40 minutes. What's worse is that sometimes there's two 16 Kingston row scheduled back to back and other times there's a 16 island lakes and 16 plaza drive scheduled back to back. with the headway of about every 10 minutes between buses plus traffic down main, graham and Osborne. I often see one overloaded 16 running late and another one almost empty only a few minutes later. with 40 minutes of headway between buses and all the traffic and construction the 16 has to go through (you can't forget about when the lights at confusion corner went out), it's no wonder she complained about the service being unreliable. In the end it's still scheduling that's causing the problem.
  13. Here’s some pics from my recent visit to Bangkok, Thailand. A lot of buses there seem to be older Japanese buses along with buses that are familiar in China like sunlong, foton and youngman. I do not know any other information about the system or buses, if anyone has any information feel free to comment below.
  14. From my recent trip to shanghai: A 2018 sunwin/Volvo SWB6188BEV21 is seen approaching shendu highway station while operating the fengpu express line BRT
  15. I saw a brand new xd60 delivered in front of FRG today possibly 373
