  1. I saw a trolley doing a 3 point turn around in the intersection at Vanness ave Joyce st with a supervisor spotting it yesterday. The West loop is fenced off. I Guess no more trolley short turning or EPU around the East loop.

    Yep there's a notice at RTC that they are getting Novas! The funny thing too is that I talked to a few drivers at RTC and some has never driven a Nova before!

    I was doing the 130 and I took this picture at Phibbs Ex this evening. Can anyone point out anything out of the ordinary? 🤔

    So you basically have a 50% chance of getting one or the other . I'm being spoiled with the 15000's and 16200's, they are awesome to drive . BTC only has 11 D60LF's in service.

    Yeah well it's Richmond they got almost equal amounts of D60LF and XDE60"s so you have a 50/50 chance of getting one or the other. I had a DE60LFR today 8154 on my 43. No a/c either

    Yeah they try to put out as much air conditioned buses on hot days like these. I remember seeing a bulletin on that last summer.

    Funny because I remember driving the I5 in Seattle almost 2 years ago and I passed 16051 heading NB! Correct, the Xcelsior bus models ride lower, no need to kneel the bus otherwise the ramp will not fully lower but rather be slightly up off the sidewalk.

    MVA in Joyce stn yesterday with 9731 and what looked like 9783. 9731 sitting in bay 3 as a 26 and the rear left side got damaged, likely another bus (9783?) passing hit it. I only saw a glimpse as I was driving the 43 and parked on Joyce st.
  15. And just so everyone knows, the September sheet for BTC was posted for the last week. The 257 is in it with the 239 line group and the 130 is still BTC.
