  1. I thought I actually had a photo of one somewhere, but I couldn't seem to find it. I did come across this from a 1982 Brandon system map. I still have yet to scan this one in, but I actually got this map as a gift! I did put the routes into this other map project I'm working on. https://www.google.com/maps/d/drive?state={"ids"%3A["1GHiQnhN1dwNZkhZLzxUbEmdbDTJli8cI"]%2C"action"%3A"open"%2C"userId"%3A"107129476531906607937"}&usp=sharing
  2. I hadn't noticed that! Looks like it could be intentional. https://www.winnipeg.ca/finance/findata/matmgt/documents/2014/201-2014_B/201-2014B_PA_Schedule_18_-_Technical_Requirements.pdf (page 41 of 107) Page 50 speaks more in general of the lighting rather than one station, but I don't see what they wouldn't implement it throughout. Plus the tunnel near Osborne already apparently has some really fancy lighting.
  3. I have nothing against on street BRT given the proper priority signals... not saying that real rapid transit instead of glorified buses wouldn't be nice, but... it's a Winnipeg thing.
  4. Had to do a quick swing by one of the stations... getting excited for tomorrow!
  5. As far as I'm aware, a blank stop will be used, though I'm not sure if a school charter uses this stop anymore this is the only example I know of. https://goo.gl/maps/HFmFtbKpC2m2WKgt5
  6. What language are you using? It would be cool to see bus assignments and schedule adherence as well. I know there was a project on here by someone else that did something similar, perhaps they'd have some advice. https://transit55.ca/ With it using GTFS, how difficult is it to pull trip data from other transit systems?
  7. That's really cool! Do you plan to have it use real time component at any point?
  8. Spotted 0809 along the TransCanada around Austin, Manitoba heading eastbound. It had yellow Ontario plates.
  9. Brandon has now waived transit fares and is only allowing boarding through the rear door. The front of the vehicle is reserved for people who are elderly or have reduced mobility and is marked with caution tape.
  10. What's with the 47 going to the U of M. I thought the whole point was to cut down on routes passing through the suburbs and going downtown. Also I see no mention of the St Norbert DART. Has that been eliminated?
  11. Dispatch has to provide one for drivers to use, but the driver isn't required to use one.
  12. Haven't posted in a while, but the new Info Centre downtown should be open now. Plan on getting some pictures at some point. Last I saw it, the wheelchair ramp looked like it took up too much of the sidewalk and actually wasn't wide enough for wheelchairs to pass.
  13. I forget who handed those out.
  14. Stop announcements are coming! As well as new fareboxes?
  15. Untrue. It's not the drivers duty to enforce the fare per Winnipeg Transit policy. Only to inform passengers of the correct fare, if they choose not to pay the operators manual states simply to ask "pay double next time" and press the "underpay" button. Winnipeg Transit set this policy to reduce the amount of driver/passenger conflicts. Transit is contradicting themselves saying that it's the operators responsibility to enforce fares. They only monitor payment.
