  1. Will the 114 get any of the new Vicinity EV's? After all, the CNG demo was used exclusively on the 114 IIRC and the 2016's got some runs on it too.
  2. Calgary Transit 8204 is one of two 2013 Nova Bus LFS CNG's originally used as a demonstrator for eighteen months before being accepted into the main roster. Here, 8204 is on layover at North Pointe Terminal.
  3. 2013-15 Arbocs which have gone missing, listed with the last time they tracked on Transit55: 2013 Diesel 1825 - 11/07/21 1826 - 09/03/21 1827 - 09/15/21 1830 - 07/24/21 (Retired) 1832 - 11/03/21 2013 Gas 1840 - 11/22/21 (Returned to service 1/13/22) 2015 Diesel 1854 - 11/09/21 (Returned 1/13/22) 1855 - 11/24/21 1856 - 11/30/21 1858 - 11/28/21 1864 - 11/28/21 1870 - 12/01/21 1875 - 12/15/21 2015 Gas 1880 - 10/23/21
  4. Good news and bad news: Good: 7780 is back, doing the 56 right now. 7765 is back as well, currently on the 453. Bad: 7708 (a blue stripe!) hasn't been active since December 1. Additionally, 2002 units 7785 and 7789 have been missing since December 8 and December 10 respectively.
  5. Saw this on an old Reddit post. The Calgary Transit System wiki page says 307 was an ex-CMR Ford, but I've seen what the Fords look like and that can't be right. The front end is too fussy and doesn't have a fishbowl windshield, so it can't a Flxette either. Somebody on the post suggested it might be an ex-Forest Lawn or Bowness bus from before annexation. Who made this bus?
  6. Bad news: 1866 is back, running the 152 New Brighton right now.
  7. Update: 7756 has returned to service. Currently it's on an all day 22 block.
  8. On GovDeals right now: -Two Gillig Phantoms from Gainesville FL (fleet numbers 548 and 549) 548 is rough looking but runs, while 549 "will not stay running": https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=4609&acctid=4740 and https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=4620&acctid=4740 -A wrecked Gillig Advantage from Mountain Line Transit Authority (fleet number 290) Declared totaled by insurance company after rear-end collision: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=92&acctid=12127 -Another Advantage from Hernando County FL (number 413) "bad ECM": https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=335&acctid=19447 -A 2003 Orion VII from Niagara (number 2369) Good condition, runs: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=203&acctid=5455 -A 2010 Nova Bus LFS from Whitehorse (number 39) Has "excessive crank case pressure": https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=19&acctid=20457
  9. First Student 30698 (2015 IC Bus CE) on December 13 and December 14.
  10. Amazingly managed to get 2 perfect Balios pictures (in a row!) Why do the Balios displays use 3O1 with an O for the northbound trip and 301 with a zero for the southbound?
  11. Bump: this was supposed to be the "8" Foothills Medical Centre
  12. Seems a bunch of diesel Novas are moving to Spring Gardens. Yesterday 8121 and 8110 ran the AM 744 (normally an SG/SF run). I checked later and 8121 is marked SG on Transit55 and has done several SG blocks. 8108, 8170, 8173 and 8190 are also marked SG currently. 8190 and 8121 have done 3 SG blocks each, while 8173, 8170 and 8108 have done 2 each. Is it normal for CT to move Novas to SG in the winter or is this a unique thing?
  13. Saw an interesting repair on 7779 yesterday... That's duct tape on the light fixture, apologies for the strap trying to block the shot.
  14. 8073 (2008 D40LFR) and 8110 (2010 LFS) on the AM 747 Crescent Heights-Hidden Valley and 744 Crescent Heights-Coventry South runs
  15. -Zooming in with the iPhone camera turned a lot of my early photos into garbage. I wish I'd stopped using it sooner... -Also when cars get in the shot and block part of the bus, like what happened here:
