  1. Did they announce who the two bidders are?
  2. For crying out loud, just put compass ticket dispensers on all the buses. Bonus is that they'd work on the SkyTrain too.
  3. I would also like to see this happen as it would be better to gradually increase capacity on the M Line, but I believe someone has previously said that Mk 1s time out on the switch just east of Lougheed Town Centre station going towards Burquitlam. Not sure if that issue still persists or not. If it does happen I believe it will happen September 2020, as that's when the next service increase is scheduled for according to previous press releases.
  4. I'm inclined to assume that there will just be more spares until a further announcement is made, similar to what happened when the 2018 Mk 3s started coming in.
  5. Seems like a 15% increase in peak service starting today. Does this translate to an increase from 19 trains/hour at peak (3:09 headway) to 22/hour (2:44 headway)?
  6. My Expo Line train going downtown this morning had "train to Waterfront" announced after the doors opened, so maybe there was a bug which they fixed yesterday (Commercial—Broadway still had the full "this is an Expo Line train to Waterfront" at door open because interchange)
  7. At most outbound stations, the Expo Line announcement changed from "This is an Expo Line train to King George/Production Way University" to "Train to King George/Production Way University" on three separate trains I was on today. Didn't pay attention at Waterfront, however at Commercial Broadway it did not change and still said "this is an Expo Line train to ..." Maybe they're going to announce the line only at interchange stations?
  8. My R4 this morning had no stop announcements. It was still wrapped and had a B prefix still (it was a 180xx bus).
  9. I think the 49 needs at least 30-32 buses without spares... Probably a subset of the 162XX will stay at RTC, or maybe some DE60LFRs will go there
  10. I'm hearing "doors will open on the left" consistently at all my stops today on the Expo Line, on a Mk 1 train (086). Didn't pay attention at the right-opening stops though.
  11. Since 19033 entered service at HTC, I'm hoping for 19001-19033 to go to HTC and the remaining HTC 180XX and 16219 to go back to BTC...
  12. Noticed they covered up the lighted map on 311/312 with a printed version, perhaps the RapidBus version is underneath already.
  13. 29th Ave Station Looks like they just put stickers over top of the existing sign.
