    New Flyer D60LF Retirement / Storage watch

    P8084 and at least one other D60LF are sitting at HTC. I assume they're being retired?

    2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    If it indeed is 88 seats, based on the brochure, looks like it'll likely be the 57-seat option for the upper deck with no recline, and the 31-seat option for the lower deck (including 6 backwards-facing seats). If that's the case, it doesn't look like there will be any space for luggage racks, unless they remove some 4-6 seats. Theoretically the can order the one-door version and use the space there for luggage racks, but I don't see this as likely.

    I guess RTC will finally stop accidentally putting the luggage racked buses on the 49... You can't send the wrong bus if there's no wrong bus 🙃

    Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Saw a unitow towing S540 and leaving HTC... Retirement? Storage? Maintenance?

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    On the Buzzer in November or December they mentioned 110 new XDE60s coming "within the next year or so", which implies 47 more have been ordered. And looking at the Board Meeting Report from October, indeed it says that 47 artics have been ordered for 2019. It's possible that not all the D60LFs will be retired by September, but this batch of XDE60s will probably be sufficient to finish them off.

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    If I had to guess, I'd say some of the 160XX XN40s at HTC will go to STC

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    There are at least four more buses wrapped and parked at HTC, presumably entering into service this week. From the 410 I see 18015 and (I think) 18020 ad wrapped... It's orange and blue and the back might have a giant football? (The front is pictured)
  15. Just out of curiosity, since the 41st Ave B Line will operate from HTC, will the 43 transfer to HTC in April or June in preparation?
