  1. Service between Seattle and Vancouver won't be restarting until late 2022. https://komonews.com/news/local/amtrak-train-service-to-canada-will-not-resume-until-late-2022
  2. A Greyhound bus got carried into a ditch by floodwaters earlier this week. https://komonews.com/news/local/greyhound-bus-carried-into-ditch-by-floodwaters
  3. I saw this on either a D40LF or an Orion VII a few years back. It was on one of the front windows (not sure which side though). Just speculation on my part, but perhaps the window was replaced and the larger numbers were used instead for whatever reason.
  4. Washington’s King County Metro acquires 20 additional New Flyer sixty-foot battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE™ buses https://www.newflyer.com/content/2021/02/washingtons-king-county-metro-acquires-20-additional-new-flyer-sixty-foot-battery-electric-xcelsior-charge-buses/

  8. Their GMC Old Look is up for auction. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/auction/view?auc=2608041&fbclid=IwAR2JzAG4707WNZzd_rxb5Inw_3cA8QxyGw_eu-tKEncGbvof8pcjnrWA5J0
  9. Greyhound Connect 90036 on Dungeness Line (Port Angeles to Sea-Tac Airport) duty, 11/29/2019. Dungeness Line (Greyhound Connect) bus leaving the Greyhound station in Seattle by LB Bryce, on Flickr
  10. All of the Invero coaches will be gone by the next shakeup (later this month), so the new buses will probably be in service then.
  11. One of the C40LFs (190) is wrapped in ST colors now. I don't know if any other PT coaches (other than any remaining 8000s) have gotten ST livery wrap.
  12. That would be the test DE60LF bus. It was damaged by fire awhile ago and never returned to service.
  13. From what was mentioned in a Facebook group, most (if not all) of the XDE40s will end up at North Base. IIRC, they were originally going to get Orion VIIs.
  14. I was looking at the site in Google Maps and saw a GMC Newlook at the entrance to the site. No obvious clues as to who previously operated it.
  15. Some of the 3700s were on RapidRide duty this evening. 3708, 3721 and 3734 were on the E line and 3735 was on the C line.
  16. Former C-TRAN 2252 (29' Optima Opus) parked near Safeco Field, June 2017. C-TRAN 2252, 29' Optima Opus by LB Bryce, on Flickr C-TRAN 2252, 29' Optima Opus by LB Bryce, on Flickr C-TRAN 2252, 29' Optima Opus by LB Bryce, on Flickr
  17. I read somewhere (possibly in the Northwest Bus Fans group on Facebook) that some of the CT maintained ST artics were transferred to King County Metro (some new ST double deckers have gone into service recently). I'm guessing the 'C' hasn't been changed to a 'K' yet.
  18. Not necessarily. This is only temporary until the Kaleetan returns to service and from what I've heard there are still a few things that need to be done until she officially enters service next month. From a service bulletin sent this evening:
  19. So I was waiting for the 116 at 3rd and Bell this evening and this went by: King County Metro 3633 on RapidRide E by LB Bryce, on Flickr King County Metro 3633 on RapidRide E by LB Bryce, on Flickr This is the first time I've seen a D40LF on a RapidRide route.
  20. 8074 is now in service (not sure of when it entered service, but was spotted on the 132 this morning).
  21. Vashon gets Sunday service for the first time since early 2000. Also, weekday mid-day service will be handled by one of the on-island shuttle buses instead of the one that currently comes over on the ferry (late morning).
  22. A couple of night ago an operator on the 21 tried to do a u-turn on WB Lander near the RR crossing (east side of the crossing) with a DE60LF (there was a train stopped in the crossing). The attempt was unsuccessful (at the very least the bus would've ended up on the sidewalk and an adjacent building along with power poles would've been in the way as well). Fortunately the train finally cleared the crossing and the operator was able to back up the bus far enough to be able to head westbound again.
  23. Kitsap Transit wants fresh eyes to look at its routes http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/local/kitsap-transit-wants-fresh-eyes-to-look-at-its-routes-3722ba06-371d-03df-e053-0100007f4ad1-386219691.html
