    Probably just gonna add fuel to the fire here but: My experience with the trolley buses on my vacation last week was more than pleasant. Calgary runs all conventional buses with diesel fuel. The trolleys, in comparison to the diesel buses, are very quiet. The acceleration on those buses are quick. And they seem to be way more environmentally friendly. The only issue I noted was just a potential need to overstock buses simply because the 4 and 14 had to use Novas with the closure of University Blvd. However the other potential issue was solved easily, as one night the 7's were unable to use W 4 Avenue...so they went on Broadway, which is the next available road anyways, instead. My question to those saying the wires create clearance issues: hiw is it Vancouver will be able to run double deckers if this is true, and also how do other cities, such as Calgary, have grade crossings when the trains use overhead wires?

    As a visitor to Vancouver, I was extremely impressed by the condition of the buses in Vancouver. I remember riding 8010 a few days ago and was also impressed by how it ran for it's age.

    Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    Not a question but I was out at Haney Place yesterday and chose the 749 as a random route to ride, did not realize I'd be practically out on a country road 😂

    I wonder if they could install the gate and trap for entering the BRT lanes

    I agree. It's also dumb that one loop has big buses all day and the other loop has shuttles.

    The crossing at 5 Avenue and 9 Street SW now has the same red concrete as the BRT lanes

    I don't know for sure but I would assume one off? To me it makes no sense that it would be replaced by a different shuttle at 7pm, combined with the fact the 174 has 8348 today
