  1. A couple of Nova's on the 99 tonight - man, you guys asleep or what?
  2. Not that Vernon Transit really makes the news or anything, but yes, they're still finalizing details but they seem to have reached a deal. I won't post the details, as its not my place, but good for them
  3. BC Motor Vehicle Act: Standees in passenger vehicles 10.03 (1) Where a licence or permit under the Passenger Transportation Act authorizes standees to be carried in a commercial passenger vehicle, the vehicle shall be equipped with a sufficient number of handholds, straps, rails or other equipment to provide support for the number of standees authorized. (2) Where the aisle width is 45 cm or more, measured at the seat baseline, the maximum number of standees shall be determined by dividing the total aisle area, measured in square centimetres, by 1 700 cm2 and rounding the resultant quotient to the nearest whole number. (3) Where the aisle width is less than 45 cm, measured at the seat baseline, the maximum number of standees shall be determined by dividing the length of the aisle, measured in centimetres, by 38 cm and rounding the resultant quotient to the nearest whole number. (4) No person shall drive or operate a commercial passenger vehicle with more than the maximum number of standees allowed.
  4. Started at about 6pm and was cleared by midnight.
  5. Thats the point I was trying to make, follow the CA and every CA is different. Mine is very specific in how probation works in regards to how long it is and the day it starts. The excerpt from the TTC CA is a bit more vague, "continuous service" can be interpreted differently and lead to unnecessary confusion thus I agree with your post and ask the Local directly and not rely on varying opinions from others.
  6. Chilliwack St according to the news: https://bc.ctvnews.ca/mobile/pedestrian-dies-after-being-struck-by-bus-in-new-westminster-1.6146221 But seeing Cherry is only a block away
  7. Seniority is based on the moment the number is given to you, if you are given a seniority number once you've completed your physical, then your seniority starts then, if you are given a seniority number on your first day of training, then your seniority starts then. Your seniority does not begin before you receive a seniority number. Your probation does not begin when you receive your seniority number, it starts the moment that you start actual employment (in which ever way your collective agreement may identify this) with the company. Seniority and probation are two separate entities and are irrelevant of each other.
  8. Settle down there Junior - I didn't agree/disagree with you. In fact, I didn't even respond directly to your comment. So why all huffy puffy? 1) All I said is that its in your collective agreement and I gave an example on how my collective agreement where I work is worded. M'kay? 2) Seniority has nothing to do with probation, they are two completely different articles in any collective agreement on how they are assigned, what purpose they serve and how the company addresses both. My seniority was also issued on my first day of training, but that has nothing to do with probation. M'kay? 3) SMH indeed.
  9. In regards to probation periods, its all in how the collective agreement is worded. For example, where I work, new hires are on probation for "X" number of days of actual work which means not in training. While you are in training, you are still on a probation period but those days are in addition to the "X" number days of actual work.
  10. Richmond no doubt has its share of poorly designed and timing of traffic lights (3 Road for example ) but the whole Great Canadian/Bridgeport/Sea Island set of lights is an absolute sh!t show, beyond any measurable of "WTF were they thinking?"

  12. That is, unless, of course you pay me, four hundred BILLION dollars! ($400.6 million, not billion )
  13. Yeesh, for a forum whose members literally piss themselves in excitement if a bus makes a left turn instead of a right turn but aren't on the ball with actual newsworthy events https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/392986/Kelowna-Regional-Transit-System-has-a-new-owner
  14. Literally 90% of the posts in this forum are things of insignificance.
  15. Nothing wrong with shorts, just those who wear shorts over top a pair of base layer pants - looks just as bad as gramps with his socks and sandals. Make up your mind, do you want to wear shorts or long pants? Pick one and be done with it - yeesh. Ballcaps are cool - when you're eight years old. As an adult, they're cringe. As far as ties in the bus industry goes, as drivers, like I said, we're the fast food worker level of the industry, where a tie simply cheapens our already low command of respect. As far as safety goes, most ties over the last 50-60 years issued are clip-on's for those very reasons. I refuse to wear a clip-on tie, I need to preserve the little bit of self respect I have left.
  16. First of all, no one "rocks" PJs and Crocs - that is simply nonviable. Second, relax Sugarbear, not talking about major surgery, talking about socially inept individuals who's pure laziness to swap out pants or tie shoes under the delusional belief that their choice is about "comfort". Doesn't take much effort to swap out some jeans and Reeboks. Lord only knows where else they're failing in life. Third, forgot to add Ugg's to my list - especially while wearing shorts in the summer. Obviously, some people still need their parents to dress them - sad really. Now, on the serious side of things - I do hope your surgery goes well and just remember, the open end of the hospital gown goes towards the back - and for the love of God, don't wear Croc's with that gown
  17. Crocs and PJ bottoms outside the home are never a "spice" , they're a bane on our society and should be dealt with accordingly, cast out in an exile of shame. You can also add sandals/flip flops with socks, baseball caps, "beanie toques" in summer, sweat pants, belt-less pants hanging down, hoodies, Oakley's and Ed Hardy shirts to that list.
  18. I'll be completely honest, I thought she passed years ago.
  19. Just go on a plane these days, used to be a time when people dressed respectfully but today, its flip flops and "juicy" sweats with a couple of matching Walmart bags for luggage Or going shopping in PJs and Crocs - good Lord - people like that need to be banished from society.
  20. I disagree with this, while I'm all for appropriate dress attire and having a respectful appearance and I despise ball caps with a passion - but we bus drivers are literally the fast food workers of the transportation industry, pretty much at the bottom of the barrel and most uniforms reflect that accordingly.
  21. You guys all asleep here? Usually you're posting every time a bus has a burnt out headlight In actual noteworthy bus news, after a couple of weeks of an overtime ban, the Union escalated to a full work stop today but First has agreed to binding arbitration and the drivers will be back on the job tomorrow: https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/388807/Union-company-agree-to-binding-arbitration-in-Kelowna-transit-labour-dispute As for First's future in Kelowna, not looking too good right now: https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/388888/Contract-for-operation-of-Kelowna-Regional-Transit-will-not-be-automatically-rolled-over
  22. Unless the bumper has sustained actual damage, unlikely that it will be needing replacement.
  23. With every new sheet, the rumours are that PTC is getting a bunch of DDs and the 555 is going back there. Driver's are a terrible source of "information", they're right about rumours as often as they are on time. I'm sure that some DDs and the 555 may eventually get back to PTC, but it won't happen until it happens.
  24. That is privileged information. Now we have to kill you
