    By the Hilton Hotel (René-Lévesque west of Honoré-Mercier) ie Colline Parlementaire "Metrobus Station" is a good bet. I would also suggest Place d'Youville which is a short walk away and has other bus action. Université Laval is also decent and features Lévis bus action all day (downtown only sees Lévis bus service at rush hour). Other major RTC bus terminals include but are not limited to Beauport, Charlesbourg (both on the Metrobus lines) as well as Galeries de la Capitale. Happy hunting!

    I think I may visit Beauport, Place Jacques-Cartier, Colline Parlementaire and Pointe-de-Sainte-Foy. If timing permits I may try to fan Laval university.

    Thanks for your help!

    This information would be perfect for TheBus Wikipedia page, except that the editors here, unlike in other cities, see no value in listing fleet numbers.

    Hey! No need to be a douche bag. Editors do what they can. Editing the wiki is no simple task that can be done in the flash of a second. Editors also have a life outside of the CPTDB wiki and often go to work or school for at least 7 hours a day.

    I am terribly sorry if my busy schedule is preventing me from editing the wiki to your preferences. I have asked @Alika.valdez1234 to PM me all of the info that need to be edited on the TheBus wiki page. Once he does so, I will be able to edit the wiki (either tomorrow, Sunday, Monday or next Friday and onwards)

    If you would like, feel free to PM me all of the information you would like me to add or edit. This goes to anyone here as I do not often check this tread.


  3. I was on a Thirdwave Bus Services 1996-2002 Chevrolet/Giradin MB-II (on lease to the JCCGV) (possibly 131)on a summer camp field trip to the Capilano suspension bridge. About 10 minutes after we get going there the brake light or sometimes started flashing and we were forced to go back due to "Safety reason". The next day we recieved an identical replacement bus.

    If my memory is correct, the first batch of flex cutaways were in 95'-96', #1100-1111 Ford 350/ Goshen Coach GCII. 7.3L powerstroke diesel, 4spd automatic. 12 seats with 1 w/c

    Next up was the 1998/1999/2000 Ford E450/ Eldorado Aerotech #1112-1134. 7.3L powerstroke diesel, 4spd automatic. 12 seats with 1 w/c.

    2003 Ford E450/ Eldorado Aerotech #1236-1259. This batch was a disaster because of engine overheating. It got so bad that holes were cut into the hood and vents could be retrofitted. Ford's 6.0L powerstroke diesel engine was designed by International at that time and it ducked. Nevertheless these units had a 5 speed automatic transmission. Seats 12 with 1 w/c.

    2007 Ford E450/ Eldorado Aerotech # 1300-1304. 6.0L powerstroke diesel. seats 12 with 1 w/c. These units had a transmission interlock which required the transmission to be in park to open and close the passenger entry door. Because of this, these units didn't last long and we're replaced a couple years later by the 1400 series. 

    The photo shows 1123 a 99' model Aerotech running on route in Independence.

    Thank you for all your help an information. 

    I have edited the wiki to include this information.

    I find it kinda funny that despite their 2003s experiencing many engine issues, they ordered the same engines in 2007

    @Thomasw
    S127-S136 2300-2325, 2400-2418 are all retired and need to be added to the retired list. 
    2600 the only buses left are (2601, 2604, 2608, 2610, 2612, 2617, 2618)
    3500, only buses left are (3510, 3511)

    Outside of that under transit centers, add 3-Trails Crossing and it's good.

     

    The wiki has been edited to include these changes and the changes about the Flex buses

    @SilentSpades Do you know when 1423-1435 were built and do you have any info about any retired shuttle buses

    He was waving in such a manner that from the camera's perspective his hand appeared to be over his nose. Surprised CMBC doesn't force all its employees to wear uniforms...

    Ohh ok 

    From what I know CMBC obliges their employees to wear a “Uniform”. By uniform it usually means a polo shirt with the company name and logo embroidered in it

    CMBC Novas are on the move, and this 2007 NovaBus LFS, 9674, is one of several transferred to Richmond Transit Centre in the past weeks. Here it is seen exiting Bridgeport Station on a 430 run.

    On November 13, 2018, #’s 1201X (now 1217) & 1202X (now 1218) were formally transferred to HART. Re-branding of the buses into the HART livery began shortly thereafter, followed by general preparation (installing the HART fareboxes, radios, etc.). 1218’s first day in revenue service with HART was March 5, 2019, with 1217 following suit on March 26, 2019. During the course of May 1 through 3, 2019 – after being delayed due to paperwork issues on SCAT’s end – #’s 1101X through 1106X (to be re-branded as simply 1101 through 1106) were transferred & are currently undergoing re-branding. I predict that these buses will be on the road by the beginning of September, though they could enter revenue service as early as mid August. All of the buses will primarily be assigned to Routes 60LX & 275LX – which serve Tampa International Airport. However, runs on Route 20X have happened & runs on the 360LX are not entirely out of the question either.

    Acquired Sarasota County Area Transit - Former #'s 1101X-1106X. Delivery was delayed for several months due to paperwork issues. . All buses have been delivered as of 5/22/19 and will enter service sometime by August, 2019.

    I’ll try to add this info later this afternoon 


  9. Hele-On is a struggling transit agency on the Island of Hawaii with a very limited an outdated wiki.

    I have spent the last few days (which I should have been studying for exams) building a fleet for Hele-On on a Google Docs here

    If you have anything to add feel free to tell me. PICTURES ARE GREAT!!!!

    I shall update the wiki with my findings before the end of June.

    Okay. Please do not say I’m screwing around the Wiki. If I made mistakes, I’m sorry. And don’t say things and speculations and rumors. I’m sorry about the mistakes if I did. Please don’t say that. And some of the information is wrong on TheBus Wiki.

    35 footers used Route 5 also to!

    Such as...

    I can't edit the wiki without any information about what to add or fix.

    @Thomasw We had a fleet of 21 2009 Ford cutaways (1400-1421), as @neoartic7101 eluded to, some are still kicking. We have a whole new fleet, 1423-1435 of CNG Cutaways, along with an older fleet of 2 cutaways (1421-1422)

    A little info.... nothing big... but....

    Did you know that the KCATA/RideKC is a licensed used Gillig dealer and has a federal gov't partnership with them? O found that out in training.

     

    Also, I graduated Friday and i am now driving on my own.

    @SilentSpades PM me.

    So I was looking on google maps and I saw that there were quite a few cutaways. One of them being numbered 1421 which I believe was on an International body. I also saw a few ford cutaways. Would you care to share some insights about these

    Okay. And that is EXTREMELY RARE for that bus to be there. And just because a bus arrives and starts going on the roads after a while will still be manufactured at that year. So please don't confuse me. 

    First of all that is not rare considering that they are manufactured in Minnesota and they have to be driven all the way to the Californian coast to be shipped overseas to Honolulu. Utah is just a short break along the way. 

    Second of all, I'm terribly sorry if your small a** brain is confused after a simple piece of information. Manufacturers tend to unveil next years models of a certain vehicle about 6 months(sometimes more sometimes less) before that year. In our case, let's say New Flyer unveiled the 2019 model of the XD60 in the middle of July of 2018. I have done my EXTENSIVE research and I found out that these buses were 2019 model years buses built sometime in the fall of 2018. I honestly don't give a crap if, for instance, a bus was built in 2007 and only started service in 2011. I do not base my wiki edits based off of 'thoughts or speculations'. Every edit I make on the wiki I make sure to have a valid source to back it up. Maybe that is why you aren't an editor. Because you would go screwing around the wiki with all of your speculations and rumours.
