  1. COVID19 stopped me from fanning, why can’t y’all do the same?

    I have stopped fanning ever since break March Break because of COVID19, it even cancelled my plans to go on a fanning trip on last Tuesday (which actually was my 15th birthday). But every time I come on here I see some kind of sighting on a sightings page. Does nobody listen, they say stay home unless it’s essential. Last time I checked, fanning ain’t essential, so what the hell gives? Just stop, stay in your homes, stop the spread, so we can go back to normal.

  2. LincTrans Updates As of April 19, 2020. As said, LincTrans is practicing social distancing and rear door boarding. Thus meaning more articulated buses for busy Downtown routes during rush hour. So apparently, I set an order for 20 more XDE60s (3151-3171) Cummins L9 8.9L 330hp/ BAe Systems HybriDrive HDS-330 Series-ER. On top of that fact, the Brown Line expansion is nearly complete, while the plan to expand the Windsor Street LRT north of Yorkmeadow Road has been cancelled.

Drivers these days, can’t get enough of them, you know. My reaction was literally ✌🏾 ——————————————————— Also please note that there’ll probably be less pics (I compensated for my IG already for the week of March 15 - 21) for this sightings list, thus because of COVID-19 and the 2 week extended break. ——————————————————— (3/14/2020) No I didn’t use Transee, but I saw a 3100 series Nova crossing McCowan Road and Ellesmere at about 4:39PM on the 95, if it wasn’t on the 95, I’ll call my optometrist and tell him I need new prescription glasses. After seeing the Special Sightings thread, it was 3189 I saw on the 95. ——————————————————— (3/14/2020) Saw an 8100 NG getting towed probably from Malvern or where the 42 terminates near Markham Road going westbound on the 401 at Markham Road back to the Wilson Division
  4. Of course I’m staying home, I just heard it over the news while staying home
  5. 8201 dodged a collision at Keele and Sheppard according to 680 News https://www.680news.com/2020/04/04/keele-sheppard-crash/
  6. That, my friend, was already reported on the Wheel-Trans thread. Drove right past me when I realized it. By me in that fact.
  7. I’m a little late, but March 13th, I caught W109 at 100 Wingarden Court P.S The driver really liked me, for helping his passengers out with the high winds
  8. Indeed. Why are most of y’all out of your houses when this dangerous virus is chewing the world’s population like gum
  9. LincTrans (Lincoln Metropolitan Area Transit Authority) Updates/News News • The newest CAD/AVL got a new format in its recent update on February 29, 2020. The current format is: Next stop: Bridgepoint Boulevard at Windsor Street. Connection to the 401 Windsor streetcar|(Stop Request) Please exit the rear doors. There is external announcements but it’s short, here’s an example of the 49: “49A Queen West to Fairvale via Queen West and Greenboro” The new format is similar to the TTC’s default VISION: Announcements: Next stop: Middle York Road. Bus Connection. Connection to LincTrans Commuter Airport and West Lincoln lines.|(Stop Request) Stop Requested “When exiting the vehicle, please exit through the rear doors. Please remember to take all of your belongings. External Announcements: “route 49A Queen West, westbound to Fairvale via Queen West and Greenboro” A similar system is currently being installed on the Streetcars. Any new buses will have the update of this system on it automatically, except for community buses, that will have the original system due to complications to on test unit 2005. Due to COVID-19, we’re reducing services as well as temporarily laying off workers. The new 804 Airport Express bus debuts March 19, 2020. The route will be out of the South Yorkmeadow and will be using the New Flyer XDE60s and NovaBus LFX 60102 Artics
  10. (3/14/2020) Saw an 8100 NG getting towed probably from Malvern or where the 42 terminates near Markham Road going westbound on the 401 at Markham Road back to the Wilson Division Also my weekly sightings have been extended until I go back to school on April 6. So don’t expect my little sightings report until April 6, which is coincidental because the Tuesday after that is my birthday, hmm.
  11. I’m kinda late to say this, but I saw 3189 when I was on McCowan, so there visual confirmation of that.

  13. I apparently can’t post my full sightings until Monday, due to connectivity issues at my home, so here like 3 pictures as an idea of what my sightings are.
  14. Exactly, like who cares who uses Transee or use their eyes.
  15. I use Transee as well to correct the fleet numbers in my weekly sightings and track buses on my local routes especially on Tuesdays (today) and Saturdays for the 85, 116 and 985 and occasionally tracking RaD buses on my local routes, most sightings I get on my way to and from school and Malvern Public Library (a good example is the pic I’ll include below). I see no reason why you have to accuse @Shemar of trespassing or cheating by using a tracker. Trespassing is illegally going into private property then getting caught for it, I know you guys know that, I don’t think Shemar would do that or anyone in that fact or else many of us would be saying this from prison. Cheating, well trackers don’t count as many of us use it and y’all don’t accuse them. My closing statement, this biased shit gotta stop because many of us tired of it. The “good” example, 1398 on the 131
