  1. Pierce Transit 192, wrapped in the Sound Transit Livery, is seen here entering Bellevue Transit Center on Sound Transit route 560E to Bellevue via Sea-Tac Airport.
  2. I spotted both of those 240 blocks today I think. Cool to see it in place, the ridership does warrant it.
  3. That's fair, although I'd still see a 66 frequency increase as more valuable for passengers personally
  4. Connections aren't necessarily a bad thing tho, like sure they can add time but the cost savings from not extending to SkyTrain could just be put towards increasing the 66's frequency, especially with expanding service hours on weekends, etc. instead of extending its length and duplicating an already popular, convenient and successful route IMO
  5. Not quite sure why they'd want to, considering that the 555 runs far more frequently than the 66 and is effectively nonstop between Lougheed and Carvolth. If you ask me, there's more potential extending it east, since east of Chilliwack has relatively limited transit service.
  6. The concept seems a little strange to me, I get that using the DMUs would be simpler than implementing a new form of rapid transit, but personally I'd rather see a SW Marine RapidBus or LRT.
  7. Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but Burrard got the new platform screens for Expo Line, although they're not operational right now.
  8. There are people who use the stops, I've seen people get on and off along Willard. I'd personally say it's useful.
  9. I believe YVR trains were also running at 3-minute frequencies due to the Richmond closure.
  10. Interesting. I think it was a Daily Hive article about the Broadway station names that stated that they'd just keep the B-Line. Not sure what the plan is now, I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. I'm personally hoping for a B-Line since it would probably indicate the possibility of the UBC subway in the near-ish future.
  11. From what I've heard, the B-Line will just be truncated to Arbutus Station.
  12. The first ones have moved from Vancouver mostly within 2020, with the only exception being the 246 I believe. As for the 25x series, I think that's mostly just West Van being West Van, from what I've heard there's no significant reasoning for it.
  13. Haha, I see what you mean. There's always gonna be some demand though I'm sure. For example, the 254 goes through one of the most extreme areas in terms of NIMBYism and extreme wealth, however it can actually have somewhat decent ridership, especially during peak hours. Sure, it may not be the residents of the houses that take the bus, but the construction workers, babysitters, etc. are a good source of ridership in West Van anyway.
  14. IMO having an empty bus is better than no bus at all. I don't know the area and I know I sound way too optimistic but sometimes people learn to do good things like take the bus ;)
