  1. Spotted 0809 along the TransCanada around Austin, Manitoba heading eastbound. It had yellow Ontario plates.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. Dispatch has to provide one for drivers to use, but the driver isn't required to use one.
  5. 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.
  6. I forget who handed those out.
  7. Stop announcements are coming! As well as new fareboxes?
  8. 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.
  9. Damn! Looks really good!
  10. Probably 71 and 72 since transit has seems to have been going in numerical order.
  11. Well, may as well fire off a resume in that direction. How long did they take to get back to you?
  12. Seems like they're doing with the Handi buses what they do with the rest of the city fleet cars.
  13. Who know's, they might hang on to them for a while yet. If they're aware that the rest of the LFR's and probably the Nova's are going to run into the emissions related system issues/rebuild time then it might be worth having the LF's and XD40's around at the same time. After all, one Calgary unit is still there. Heck, they're short on cash, might be worth it to have a box on wheels instead of not. I imagine these Handi buses are a replacement and not an expansion.
  14. Hopefully their two Xcelsiors are on the way soon then. I guess they'd be looking to retire 49 and 50 then?
  15. I believe it is actually.
