    I won't deny that they would work better here due to the terrain, and that the general populace don't care.  I just wanted to get that off my chest.  Having C40LFRs here wouldn't be the end of the world, and I'm sure it would work out well with parts commonality between them and our D40LFRs, and hey it would mean STC (mostly) would have the same livery for all vehicles.


    Would if I could.  But i can't so i won't.

    I got a question here that I hope somebody would be able to answer.

    So when the C40LFR's are undergoing refurbishment, do they also get new CNG tanks or do they keep it as is. If they aren't getting re-tanked what would be the point of refurbishing them if the tanks are left to expire within the next few years or do they swap the tanks when they expire. 

    I think if there's any rust or signs it'll fail in the next few (any) years they have left then yes i think they'll replace them. 


    If a bus looks really in bad shape or like 8054 etc will they get a new body and engine etc with the old fleet number and vin? 


    So my point in my sense. (Sorry if it's off topic) Since bctransit when they refurbished the d40lf in the 2000s (some in 2009 i think) they replaced the seat covers. The only one in the 1998 group (9815-9890(?) ) That has the old covers that I've seen is 9889 in Victoria. I think it has half like ours (the ones it came with) and half or just front ones with red markings (same ones their 9200 novas came with). When the whistling 9839 came back it stopped whistling for a long ish time. Once 9201 came back it came with the new seat covers and cameras etc (**this is just a sample and may not be fully listed)

    So hard to say if they'll replace the CNG tank. Or keep it. But to me if it's in bad shape it'll be replaced or if it's too costly maybe retired.

    S519 is among the first of the CMBC shuttles with its farebox replaced.

    I like the newer one actually. (since there's no faresavers anymore) 

    Any plan to do conventional busses with the fare box that does tap cards as well? Ive seen images of the same one we have in Google images while back with functionality of compass in it. (don't know if they had one as test or somewhere worldwide with same system as this)


    When i see that image again i can post it here

  4. Yes this should be in the general thread. It's related to transit because YVR does have Canada line and the n10 right? Planes stop in Metro Vancouver YVR airport. So it's in general to my eyes

    Any estimates on when the Hamilton XN40s will be delivered?

    I'm more concerned if they'll have the 182xx-182xx or if they'll have 191xx since they needed to get some headlight modification at factory as i heard. 


    But i think those should have been delivered by end of 2018 but was delayed...

    To me, it seems more likely that they'll get a batch of buses transferred over from Kamloops, just like what they have done in the past...

    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!

    There were no vehicles near the bus aside from the emergency ones and the bus showed no signs of exterior damage. The driver also appeared to be looking at the floor in the front area of the bus, and the emergency crews did the same. I do not fully know what happened, but I don't think it was an accident with another vehicle

    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
