    BC Transit - Nanaimo

    I believe if Nanaimo settled for zf transmission. It'll be best to switch the zf Kamloops ones to Nanaimo slowly not to affect service. Take the voith from Nanaimo slowly to Kamloops. Like. Example: Take 2 busses. Drop off. Same 2 drivers take two home. I like the fleet number 1111. Very easy to remember!

    Collisions and Incidents thread

    2 Ambulance means a passenger related issue. Speaking of issues. I was on s18165 i believe. It was around 8 PM on a 595 Langley and I seen a lot of vomit in the back. Not sure what happened but seems like the driver got a bus change. Earlier on the Langley side 364 it is always never on time when it has to leave my stop near 142/64. Every few Saturdays on the 4:32 departure from Scottsdale it is 15 minutes behind and i miss the 595 connection. No biggie i don't mind waiting.... Until some person one day gets to work late. (cannot remember fleet number but not needed in this case) Looking on the ground in the bus means a passenger was laying down sick or hurt. Ambulance comes to the rescue. Fire crew is first on scene because they are more trained/qualified to the 911 call. Had that before
  4. I think translink should really look into 96 rapidbus (b-line re-branded) to coquitlam. So as usual to guildford and then up like 501 but stopping only at 156st and 158 maybe. And then head on highway like the 555. They could easily make 555 half go to carvolth and half to newton. Very easily...

    Kamloops Transit

    Maybe Nanaimo. Says the wiki Nanaimo gets two for service increase on the 40. Whistler might get a few as well

    Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    Or give STC the 555. Start at carvolth. No problems. It can be king george NIS to 88 ave and up 88 to carvolth. Or up highway 1.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Could work with 503 probably a 60 foot bus(?). Made into a b line to airport (express stops) Make the 502 return to aldergrove routing. But make every stop. I do see future translink takes on 21 via the 503. Maybe “88 brt (bus rapid transit) -to abbotsford airport - via langley central station” and “502 abbotsford airport - via langley central station” could do the trick?

    2019 Standard 40' and 60’ Bus Procurement

    I heard but can be mistaken. Some xde60s and xn40. Xn40 some this time should go to ptc since others got new ones for 2018. (Sorry to be off subject but tell me about it) first was the stc xn40. Second was vtc nova bus lfs. Third was rtc there is 18457 in service. Fourth is htc for their xn40 still on order. Fifth is btc as i see the first 12 are for Btc. Seems west van got the low floor shuttles. The rest went for langley i believe for first transit to replace s1300s. Ptc should shuffle some xn40 or something and get some of the xn40 from 2018 or get an order in 2019 (this year) BTW Happy new years everyone! (On subject or off subject it is new years)
