    Translink Refurbishments

    Is there a way to tell if a certain bus is refurbished other then the fact that it has been inactive for a while and looks clean?
  2. Seems that Air Canada has started their transfer of a320s to Air Canada Rouge starting with C-GFCH

    Miami Dade transit

    I have edited all of the info that you provided about the power trains except the part where you said "#10101-10105 series 2010 Gillig BRT HEV 40' were equipped with Cummins ISB6.7" as the wiki says they have Cummins ISL9 engines. Unless you provide solid evidence that 10101-10105 have a ISB6.7 I'd rather not edit the wiki. All of the pics looked terrible except the second one which has no visible numbers on it. Unless I have written consent from the person who took that photo I'd rather not upload it.
  4. In this thread, I would like to talk about Academia Bus lines fleet. All of there 10 buses are second-hand buses so it would be good to know who their previous operators. Any other information about this company is great too.

    I can edit it. Other than that image, which BTW means nothing to me, what is your source for these two proposed changes

    ok thx is there anything else you would like me to add to the wiki
  7. Considering the cost to replace a regular car hybrid battery can cost upwards that 10,000$ I would expect the cost to replace a battery on a bus would be much greater. I think it is safe to assume that these buses will not see the light of service ever again
  8. Found some information about route ridership in 2018. Source: https://buzzer.translink.ca/2019/04/10-busiest-bus-routes-in-metro-vancouver/ 1. 99 Commercial–Broadway/UBC B-Line: 17,414,000 boardings 2. 49 Metrotown Station/Dunbar Loop/UBC: 9,327,000 boardings 3. 20 Victoria/Downtown: 8,718,000 boardings 4. 41 Joyce Station/Crown/UBC: 8,604,000 boardings 5. 25 Brentwood Station/UBC: 8,288,000 boardings 6. 16 29th Avenue Station/Arbutus: 7,910,000 boardings 7. 9 Boundary/Commercial–Broadway Station/Granville/Alma/UBC: 7,396,000 boardings 8. 5/6 Robson/Downtown – Davie/Downtown: 7,182,000 boardings 9. 3 Main/Downtown: 7,004,000 boardings 10. 95 SFU/Burrard Station B-Line: 6,808,000 boardings I'm honestly surprised to see the 9 and the 5/6 up there because I don't remember them being overly busy routes. I thought the 351 might be up there though because there is always a huge lineup at Bridgeport for it. What I find funny is the fact that they are turning the 43 into a B-Line or shall I say Rapidbus but the 43 doesn't even have that much ridership

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5133465 This is bad news Lets hope that the deal doesn’t go through. I feel like this Onex Corporation would just cause more issues. Just people you own a successful cinema company and a hit saloon doesn’t mean that your nessesary ready to own an international airline

    Eww it looks terrible. Even Rapidbus looks better than that
  11. I will be creating a wiki page for Kahului Airport in Maui but unfortunately, I don't know/am too lazy to add any reference so if anyone could add that in that would be great. I should be done creating the page today

    Does this mean the 2003 and 2004 gilligs are retired?

    Would you care explaining what happened and why a transit bus would be needed in this scenario

    I'd rather not add that information until it is confirmed
