    Buses, especially New Flyer. The D40(HF), and D901A are my favourite New Flyers. I also like the MCI TC40-102N Classic, and GMD T6H-4521. I like the Detroit Diesel S50, 6V71N and 6V92TA engines.

    General Train Spotting/Photos

    GWWD 202 (MLW RS23) in Winnipeg on March 21st, pushing some tank cars into their yard along Dawson Road.

    Winnipeg Transit #901-910 tracking (D40i Invero)

    I saw a D40i turn off Graham today, around 3 or 4 PM, but I didn't see the number.

    Perhaps they could take Blue (RT) and 694?

    It's certainly a lot to take in, not just route/service changes, but the route numbers too.

    Winnipeg and Artic Buses

    I was kinda far away, and couldn't get pictures, but I'm pretty sure it was mostly white, couldn't see the number (if any). Was definitely an Xcelsior articulated bus, which has the full cover thing on the top (not just at the HVAC).

    I saw a blank XD60 driving south on Pembina.

    If you're short-staffed, then maybe it's time to get the Now Hiring message out.

    Then use the hundreds of buses you have.

    This is the schedule for the 84. One bus per hour. 86 is basically the same, but shifted by 30 minutes. That's not acceptable. Even the 95 isn't that bad, at about 30 minutes, and I still think that's 15 minutes too much. Maybe, they could consider using all the buses they have in the garage.

    They could always replace the 39 ;). But regardless, I really hope frequency gets improved on routes like 95, and especially the 84 and 86.

    I think an acceptable maximum time between buses where the RT routes operate would be about 10 minutes or less outside of rush hours, and 5 minutes or less during rush hours. We're not talking about 95, or 98 or 89 or any other lower usage route, we're talking about the 160, 161, 162, 185 and stuff like that. Not only would it increase convenience, but it might help with those routes always being jammed with people, especially at rush hours. We should have plenty of 40/60 foot buses, and with more on the way.

    Make sure your new text is not inside of what you are quoting. I had to add it into the above quote myself, and it could be confusing for those not familiar with the conversation here. Anyways, it's bad enough to miss a turn, but to reverse on a freeway?! What else do you expect in China, I guess. Safety second, or never.
