  1. The 10s to 63rd loop would be 16s going into service.
  2. 14039 is back at HTC.
  3. 3321 is interesting. Curious if it's just out this once then sent back to PTC tonight or if a few C40LFRs will operate out of HTC for a bit.
  4. https://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus/3101 Apparently there is a D40 operating out of HTC lol. I'm going to assume it's a 160** out on its first day. Can someone verify which bus this is.
  5. The XN40s are great for going uphill. I've gotten up to 70km/h going up gagliardi and I've passed a D60LFR with ease.
  6. Full CNG would make sense with the increased passenger loads even with the increased service. Also, the Orion's would be needed for increased service on the suburban routes at RTC. I think he changes some numbers in the URL on the trip planner part of the Translink site to find them. And we haven't seen the preview sheets yet.
  7. For deadhead, HTC would be decent or at the very least ideal if VTC needs the space for other routes. The 25 could be interlined with the 123 and the 134/136 as well if need be, something like 101 136 134 25 136 101. The 22 would have to be on its own and the Knight terminus isn't ideal for operators to/from HTC, but it could work. It's the amount of travel time required, not so much the inconvenience. Brentwood would definitely be to far to go for a relief point.
  8. HTC is being used for storage and non revenue maintenance.
  9. 9208 on the 101 right now. Just left lougheed station. It's not in tcomm so it's just added on. I'm going to assume that since my 101 I just finished was really busy, the bus is missing in front of me.
  10. Looks good. Since LRT would be a completely new mode of transit in Metro Vancouver, they could create an exclusive livery while still keeping to the the Sweep-R theme.
  11. I think something like this was included in Translinks 2040 plan. Also, I believe Translink can extend as far north as Squamish so it's a possibility this would be included in our network. If this was to happen, it would probably be operated by West Vancouver. Although they could designate it as a CMBC service with suburban equipment. Same goes for the Fraser Valley Express, Translink/CMBC could take it over as I believe they are allowed to service as far as Chilliwack for a service like this. This could become reality as I've heard that BC Transit didn't really want to operate this service in the first place, but the Fraser Valley wanted it so they just went ahead with it.
  12. Lol I agree. But they want these buses ASAP. However, they want CNG so chances are they will stick with the XN40s to keep the fleet the same.
  13. 14037 is back at HTC.
  14. That all depends on what routes would have 60 footers. HTC is currently at 50% capacity, but come April, the capacity used will go up with the service increases.
