  1. Nearly an hour NIS trip from RTC to the 555 only to be BO and needed a replacement. 😁
  2. Here's my two cents on the Double Deckers. They are nice buses to drive, they turn very sharp and you barely notice the top deck while driving. However, I feel they need some adjustments done. When the rear door is open the driver monitor only shows the rear door, I wish it showed the top deck so I can see when everyone who wants off the bus is off and it's clear to load passengers. Also the door controls are sensitive, the doors will not close until the bus is fully raised from the kneel position and the brakes are applied, the brakes having to be applied I can live with but sometimes I jump the gun and close the doors before the bus is fully raised. This makes the double deckers bus slower to operate. I had some issues with the rear doors freezing up while closing, it happened to me on three occasions and I ended up having to BO the bus and get a replacement. And I had an occasion where the rear door would not open when you push the gray bars despite the rear doors being activated.
  3. Ops! I saw it on the commissioning line. Shows how observant I am. 😀
  4. 9275 is on the retirement line.
  5. Double Decker bus training, Either an operator who transferred to RTC or someone who hasn't received training yet.
  6. All 16200's have barriers yes, all 26.
  7. Yes it's confirmed. I had a feeling it would be the next sheet, I don't see how they could introduce a new route in the middle of a sheet sign up.
  8. Maybe our next trolley fleet will have a bigger fleet to keep the 41's as trolleybuses. 🙂
  9. Why don't you contact Translink and see if they can answer??
  10. Well there's a 1 in 188 chance of guessing right. My guess is 2242 😎
  11. Also to add, I saw 9276 on the retirement line this evening.
  12. Looks like 9222 is on the retirement line, also the D40LF public relations bus is on the retirement line too.
  13. That's how it always goes. I wouldn't be surprised if I do a 301 and get the only Orion and all others being Deckers.... 😀
  14. 18049 is now unwrapped, there's a video of it being unwrapped for the Rapidbus launch.
  15. I spotted 16225 on the 99 today.
  16. 19414 and 19425 at RTC. I saw them pulled in 😀
  17. I read an article on the Winnipeg free press that Edmonton has brought 35 new flyer 60ft buses. I think it's safe to say there are 35 in this order.
  18. Another Orion towed away this evening, I didn't get the number as I passed it opposite direction on hwy 99.
  19. 9214 got towed out of RTC this evening
