  1. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    I doubt it. They will probably stay together at RTC for some time then one to STC and one to PTC for those runs. At least that makes the most sense within the trial period.

    A few ran out of PTC for a bit I believe.
  3. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    57th is a pre planned future station as well. That won't be done until the development takes place in that area and I believe the developer is paying for a part of the construction. Not sure if any further bus service will be implemented there however.

    I'd say the fact that 7403 is on the 20. Has the ever been a Cummins on the 20?
  5. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    Most likely. Not sure how many are left in storage at the moment.

    Everywhere needs buses. They are also getting things set for the January sheet which is supposed to have some big improvements everywhere.
  7. 2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Apparently the 94 hybrids for expansion will all go to VTC which would mean the current Nova's will be spread out everywhere they are needed. Would just be easier to spread them out as they get delivered, but this would give Vancouver a decent number of AC buses. After this delivery, all depots will have AC buses for local service.
  8. 2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    From what I've heard the CNG's will be from New Flyer and the hybrids from Nova which will be BAE. @Express691 was there any mention of Suburban's? Supposed to be about 25 Nova's.

    Spotted 7184 (I think) and 7312 going EB onto Front Street at about 1330 today. Possibly heading to the warehouse for storage.
  10. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    They are starting to use it for public messages such as SkyTrain down or like this for stops being closed.

    Saw it parked in a lot near the Unifor 111 Union building on 12th a while ago, could still be there.

    The radio (tmac) would be fully installed considering they are reporting blocks to T-comm as well as thier location. This would also be required if they are to be used in full time regular service. Not sure about the farebox, but the compass equipment would have been left in the bus. Only the front reader is needed so they probably don't have a shortage. The D40s for the Olympics were used for extra special service for only about 2 weeks, these buses will be used for the next year or two.

    I'm surprised they are running out of VTC in service, figured they would have had them at HTC and send some hybrids back at least I had hoped lol. It's a full day run on the 41 https://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus?busId=7191. The other D40LFs running out of VTC in service are booked out on actual blocks.
  14. New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    I drove by there the yesterday and didn't see any outside that were there before. Couldn't tell you anything about inside.
  15. 2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    Sorry, I can't find one. I guess you need to be invited. I remember just stumbling across this group a while ago and just joined? It's a Facebook group that is for members of the public not just transportation workers. There are people in the group that are not employed by any transit agency, some even in high school I believe.
