  1. I’m thinking this has already been talked about, but I’ve heard that the 340 will be deckers. Is this confirmed and if so. what are all your opinions on that? i never imagined it would be necessary but it should be helpful to increase capacity and comfort. Hopefully the trees along Kittson Parkway don’t give it too much trouble!
  2. I haven’t been on one either, as I just watched them at the Exchange. I’m sure you’re joking about moving to Abby. There are so many XN40s in Victoria, and I’m sure you’ll be on one soon.
  3. I find it interesting that the STS has destination signs (similar to the ones at the back of the bus) INSIDE the buses (close to the front). I noticed that in YouTube videos. I think they have it there to ensure customers know the route the bus is on, but why can't they do it some other way? One option that may work would be using LCD screens similar to what the TTC, MTA/NYCT and NRT use on some buses to display not only the next stop, ads and other info, but also the route and destination of the bus. I mean, it seems like it could be costly.
  4. Ah. I understand that part. I know that TransEd will be operating buses at some point, because Fort Sask wouldn't have joined (https://www.fortsask.ca/en/living-here/rtsc.aspx). I'd love to make the trip from Vancouver when TransEd is operating rail and bus. Thanks for the info!
  5. When does the new Regional transit Authority (TransEd) officially start? Is TransEd the network redesign. or is that another change taking place later?
  6. Could I please get a username change to Urban_96? That would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  7. Thanks! I really do think that every system should have screens similar to this.
  8. I’m interested in the screens inside the latest LFS order. What do they display? Just weather/news etc., or do they also show the next stop and things like that like they do in Toronto and NYC?
  9. I don’t know much about this subject, they might be doing both Hill Testing AND Operator Orientation at the same time. Maybe they are training operators in the BYDs while mechanics from the depot are tracking how the bus performs on hills.
  10. I would think that it is in order to comply with Physical Distancing regulations like you mentioned, and also to hold more passengers. As well, because it is longer, it is easier to stay 6 feet away from others in an artic.
