    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    The livery is green and blue, there's a picture of R12024 in the "Rapid transit" new livery at BTC somewhere on this site. I think that's what it is. I haven't actually seen it yet but that's what it says on our employee site.

    I saw 8066 on the 99B the other day and yes it still had the luggage rack. My guess is that it's for the 257. 🙂

    Vancouver Trolleybuses - Happy 70th and Many More

    I tried unsuccessfully to get the August 19th trip so I chased it with a friend in my car and got footage and pictures. Here are my video links... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtUmyslWSjQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8sFc9HMK8o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZmpmWvR0s4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARsvTjUKf4Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-1JbmKJMkA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iT5qp-X5oa4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnBUprjnh7I
  6. 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!

    Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    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.

    Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    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
