  1. I have a feeling more of those 600 series X3-45s are going to be making their way back out west for work in Kitimat that First has going on. Several are out West here.
  2. I hear First lost the contract for inside runs in the Kitimat site to Diversified according to a buddy up there right now.
  3. Im not entirely sure I haven't seen them myself. I'll have to ask!
  4. 1 of 2 2021 H3-45's purchased for Ebus for the BC service. #5738 captured below. 5739 I will try and catch when it's in next. Ebus 2021 Prevost H3-45 #5738-3 by Dannny29, on Flickr Ebus 2021 Prevost H3-45 #5738-1 by Dannny29, on Flickr
  5. Just adds salt to the wound when no one is buying any buses at all right now.
  6. Traxx never to my knowledge has had a Temsa. Maybe you're confusing it with the ABC 3035RE's they had? At least 1 or 2 are still left and are in Kamloops in the Canada West Fleet when I last saw one.
  7. Nailed it. And not far off how Greyhound worked. The Vancouver - Seattle buses were supposed to be in a "Strict Pool" due to the fact that only enough buses had the PTB plate for their operating license in BC. But on more than one occasion I'd service a bus that wasn't plated for BC.....meanwhile I'd book a PTB plated GLI bus into the system and see it had been bouncing around California all over the place. But alas, only some drivers I knew actually noted the lack of plate but were forced to take the bus anyways. Buses that were actually decent caused some drivers to play dirty. If one driver came in on a sched with a good bus. And the guy behind him who finished after had a crap bus, that guy behind would end up taking that first driver's bus as he would then be the first one out before the first guy who was going out later. So the guy going out later would end up with the other driver's crap bus that maybe would make it back.
  8. Looks like Rider Express took delivery of a Temsa TS-35. For service between Sakatoon and Regina according to the Facebook post by them.
  9. The numerous road calls I've had trying to get a stuck Greyhound at the border started to kick it back stateside or get it into Vancouver.
  10. Fixed. Not sure why I had a brain shutdown
  11. Looks like Rider Express will be starting up an Overnight Schedule between Vancouver and Calgary on Tuesdays and Mondays. Leave Vancouver Tuesdays at 19:00 arrive Calgary by 09:15 on Wednesday. The Leave Calgary Mondays at 18:00 and arrive into Vancouver at 06:35 Tuesday. https://riderexpress.ca/schedules/vancouver-calgary/ Edit: Completely had a brain fart and added the proper timing info and dates.
  12. Universal has the Amazon employee shuttle work as well.
  13. Id figure regular cutaways and a mix of Prevost and MCI's.
  14. I was told the only big piece of work right now for them is the Kinder Morgan shuttle on Burnaby mountain. Something like 20+ shuttle buses and a handful of coaches on it from what I was told. Passed a bus today with Kinder Morgan signage coming up Boundary road.
  15. Sounds temporary due to COVID 19. Where in this post did it sound like people had no money to ride due to it being premium brand?
