  1. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    imo "%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/#####################/@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@/&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&" is the best one. Some driver would always do it on layover back when I lived near Joyce station. The bus is screaming out to whoever is listening
  2. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    They all started showing up at VTC when the 9 got dieselized for the Commercial-Broadway construction. They'll probably be gone at the end of the month.

    Yeah I take the 9 from Commercial-Broadway Eastbound and there was nothing going on today.
  4. 2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Xcelsiors are available with with BAE hybrid, so I'd think delivery times as well.
  5. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    A neat art print of Vancouver transit.
  6. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    It's on a 004 today, paired with 2225.
  7. 2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Ours were (still are?) built by the New York factory. The TTC nightmare is from problems arising by sending production down to Mexico for finishing up in Thunder Bay. Why ours are made in NY, not sure. Maybe that's where they do all LIM or specific Innovia stuff, but it doesn't seem to be having the same problems as Mexico/Thunder Bay.
  8. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    It's still happening I suppose. This was coming home today, 1000 minutes more late than yours! edit: lol look at the system map or route list.
  9. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    I'd believe it. Even today most people I've seen paying cash are giving 2.75 and the driver just printing the transfer.
  10. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    Agreed, there was nothing wrong with that post. I agree it looks similar to an LFR. That user is gone, so now odds are it's either a normal post mentioning a detail (as that post was) or a sarcastic throwback.
  11. The Compass Project

    I don't see why it would be? Generic Compass Cards are transferable as per the terms and conditions of use. It's only Program Cards like UPass that aren't transferrable.

    The NFI fleet were all Allison until the Nova/ZF orders happened, then it's been ZF since. That first Nova order added other things such as Axion instead of Luminator etc. If for whatever reason the Xcelsiors suck due to transmission choice, is it's TL's fault for demanding ZF, or NFI for not saying 'No'?
  13. The Compass Project

    Starting June 21, limited-edition Canada 150 Compass Cards will be available at the following places while supplies last:
  14. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    Yeah I assumed the ones built in '98 wouldn't have been built to the new spec, because orders/design/contract etc. were probably signed before the new spec showed up.
  15. Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    Assuming our regulations on CNG tanks are the same as USA, it was revised for newer models. From 1998 it was 20 years, then 2007 25 years. If the C40LFRs were built to even the 1998 standard, the tanks would last the life of the vehicle.
