  1. Alright thanks. I updated the wiki a couple a days ago based off of a couple new and old paratransit reports that outlines their fleet and based off of some photos on google.
  2. Is there any reason as to why the 61XX, 71XX and 81XX cutaways are not mentioed in the wiki? I assume they are used for paratransit but am not sure.
  3. Updating my list from a little under three years ago. Recent additions will be in bold. Here is my list though I am probably forgetting a few. Air Canada: Airbus A320-200 Airbus A321-200 Airbus A330-300 Boeing 777-200LR Boeing 787-8 Air Canada Express: Bombardier Dash 8-300 Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 Embraer E175 Air Canada Rouge: Airbus A321-200 Boeing 767-300ER WestJet: Boeing 737-600 Boeing 737-700 Boeing 737-800 Flair Air: Boeing 737-800 All Nippon Airlines: Boeing 787-9 PAL Airlines: Bombardier Dash 8-300

    It would be certainly nice if they return with the new livery. Realistically this won't happen but it's fun to think about.
  5. Did some more research today and found some more buses which are/were part of the First Student fleet in Metro Vancouver. Here are my additions: First Student: 143216 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis First Student Canada: 2025 is a Girardin MB-IV on a GMC chassis with a wheelchair lift 2061 is a 1998 Girardin MB-II on a GMC chassis with license plate 0744CX 2096 is a 1998 Girardin MB-II on a GMC chassis with license plate 4879CX 2195 is a Bluebird conventional which a GMC engine. It is the shortened version which only seats 48 passengers 2528 is a Thomas Built Buses FS65 with license plate 1756HC 2870 is a 2002 Thomas Built Buses FS65 with license 2958LD. It is the shortened version similar to 2195 except this one has a wheelchair lift so it probably seats 30+2WCs 2964 is a 2006 Thomas Built Buses Minotaur built on a Ford E-450 chassis with license plate AW5625 3286 is a Girardin MB-II built on a GMC chassis with license plate 1017LX 3325 is a Girardin G5 built on a Ford E-450 chassis 08 0567 is a 2008 Girardin G5 on a Ford E-450 chassis with a wheelchair lift 08 0568 is a 2008 Girardin G5 on a Ford E-450 chassis with a wheelchair lift and license plate AW5637 100878 is a short IC CE (not a BE) with a wheelchair lift and license plate BW9876 111290 is a 2011 Collins Nexbus on a Chevy chassis which a wheelchair lift and license plate DG7782 111303 is a Collins Nexbus on a Chevy chassis Today while out doing essential travel I also spoted: First Student Canada 121797 is a Collins Nexbus on a Chevy chassis which a wheelchair lift
  6. I'm starting this thread to discuss sittings of any First Student/First Canada/First Student Canada buses in the Metro Vancouver area. This thread will mainly be about school buses but if anything related to First Student pops up feel free to share it. So far here are the buses I've see over the last week of essential travel and google map searches: First Student: 112229 is a 2011 Collins Nexbus on a Chevy chassis 121795 is a Collins Nexbus on a Chevy chassis which a wheelchair lift 140691 is a 2014 Thomas Built Buses EFX with license plate HF3237 143217 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis 143218 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis 143226 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis 190511 is a Bluebird MB-II on a Ford Transit chassis 201474 is a 2020 Bluebird G5 on a Chevy chassis 201822 is a Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner EFX BM1130 is a Bluebird MB-II on a Ford Transit chassis HN004904 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis with license plate PK9626 HN004932 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis with license plate PK5621 HN004967 is a Thomas Built Buses Minotaur on a Chevy chassis First Student Canada: 1988 is a 2000 Girardin MB-IV on a Ford E-450 chassis with license plate 8339EN BM1128 is a Bluebird MB-II on a Ford Transit chassis with license plate PX5800 First Canada: F283 is a Thomas Built Buses C2 Unknown markings: 08 0522 is a Girardin G5 on a Ford E-450 chassis 205183 is a Thomas Built Buses EFX This roster is by no means completes and I would love for y'all to contribute to it!
  7. Is it safe to say that 514-516 are retired? Does anyone know the VINs or License plates for 818-821, 822-825?
  8. Any reason as to why 40’ were still on artic routes today? Saw 9669 on the 20 and 9563, 9678 and 16114 on the 49. I didn’t see any artics on both routes. There was no snow on the road and it was way above freezing all day.
  9. When I made the edits someone had provided me with screenshots that the buses hadn’t been in service for over a year and a half so I assumed they were retired. I don’t live on Hamilton so I wasn’t aware that these buses were in storage. I appreciate that someone changes they’re status to stored to avoid confusing. Regarding my tone. I didn’t someone to automatically think that because I messed up once, this new edit must also be false and remove it. Sorry if you misinterpreted it.
  10. Before somebody undoes my edit to the wiki like last time.. 932 is officially retired! It was wrapped around a pole on the 12th during a snowstorm. I have screenshots from the operator who wrapped it around the pole. Repairs were estimated at 1.2 million so it was considered a write off.
  11. A serious MVA on the Coquihalla Highway earlier today involving over 20 vehicles has left 1 dead and over 30 injuried. Ebus 5738 was involved and received some serious rear end damage. https://www.instagram.com/p/CLKI-ruAbj0qKacVZ8Prk1BrZna-GM5VKyD4bo0/?igshid=1s2x0ag7bseg9 This account is private so I took the liberty of taking a screen recording for those who don’t follow them or don’t have Instagram. Unfortunately this video is too big and the CPTDB doesn’t allow files over 10MB to be uploaded. PM me if you would like to see the video
  12. No it was not. It was donated to Hele-On as it was frequently breaking down and the demand was not sufficient to justify running a double decker.
