    With the current state of 17 Avenue, how?

    Noticed these changes for routes 1 and 305 along 17 Avenue SE in the app.

    Are only specific lanes at Spring Gardens used from Friday night to Sunday night? I've noticed that the same buses out on a Friday night get put out on Saturday and Sunday and only those buses.

    There are also other issues that come into play in my opinion. One major one being routing. I can understand transit not wanting to use big buses on the 94, because going into Strathcona it's a short distance, as well as Westbrook-Westhills not being too far either. However, this begins to demonstrate that the 94 ends up being like the old northwest loop routes; convenient, but not efficient. I am also aware transit is doing so many projects and a giant route overhaul elsewhere too. But when people start realizing that all they're gonna get is an arboc no matter how much they cry out, they'll deter those riders from taking the bus. I personally think it would be in transit's best interest to go the same way with other long routes and cut up routes like the 93 and 94 and 18, and for the same reasons too: shuttles where there can be shuttles, and articulateds where they can fill a bus no doubt.

    The complaints about the 94 have been there since day one of shuttles on that route. Same with the 18, every September, its always overloaded from September to April.

    3 car trains in five years heading to the Northeast and South at rush hour equals disaster

    I long for the day that Calgary sees anything but New Flyer/Nova buses, and Siemens trains

    I don't think the bus should've been sent out regardless...

    Okay now I'm convinced either something is wrong with the manufacturing or maintenance of these buses. This is 1276. Driver was informed.

    Well for passengers it's the lack of seating in the middle of the cars and for the drivers I believe they hurt your back (please correct me if I'm wrong)

    "We want to be the way people travel..." Okay how about some comfortable seats for both passengers and operators that might be a good start

    8217 on the 422. What a joy that must be at Cathedral Manor

    I remember at one point it was said that, scheduled, Red Line had all four car trains except for 3 trains, and Blue Line had six four car trains. Has this changed at all, and will it change again in September?

    Same thing I was thinking, I guess he was just angrily pushing a stop button
