  12. Article on Selkirk's Facebook page about the newest addition: www.myselkirk.ca/selkirk-transit-adds-4th-bus-to-fleet/
  13. After watching the council meeting I highly doubt this particular refinement will go through. The ATU President addressed council as to this and they are deadset against this( as they should be) due to concerns such as clearance for the artics on certain streets and the 15-minute run times to and from Main&Ferry and the Bus Terminal.
  14. current orders- three Nova LFS for 4Q 2016 delivery( replacing 3 of 4 remaining Orion V buses) and two Chev C4500/ Glaval Titan II cutaways for the Chair-a-Van( one to replace 2621 and one expansion) scheduled for delivery by this summer
  15. 3 more Novas are now on order for 4Q 2016 delivery, they will be replacing 3 of the 4 remaining Orion V units; also starting on page 7 of the council agenda for Feb. 9th it lists the proposed service improvements for NFT, starting with a one-year pilot project to have the Green Line directly service the bus terminal both NB and SB, and to integrate the Purple Line with route 104 and use the artics on that. The Red Line is proposed to be beefed up to 15-minute frequencies from 9am-12pm and 4-7pm during the peak summer period and the fall/winter/spring will now have 30-minute service on Sundays and Holidays and will run 30 minute service until 11:00pm. Also pending is the introduction of 30-minute service on routes 203 and 206 Monday-Saturday evenings and Sunday/Holiday service.
