  1. In my opinion, 126 should be reserved for the 155. I'm surprised they haven't changed it yet to follow what they did with the 154 becoming the 128.
  2. The 106 line group is only for the 106 and 119 for weekdays except for maybe a few interlines at the beginning or end of peice and the 123 line group is everything else. For weekends and holidays the 106 line group is as it was before with the exception of the 106 itself being on its own.
  3. Seems kind of pointless to me especially if the schedule happens to be the same. But we will see what the official word will be.
  4. That's news to me, I haven't seen or heard of any official plans for the 129. This could be something for within the next year or so or just an idea to see if it could improve the 129. It is strange to terminate at Holdom Stn, there's no turn around so the only thing I can think of right now is the bus will still continue on, but have a layover to accommodate different frequencies. Or terminating the 136 at Holdom as well and Interline it with the 129 & 133.
  5. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    Could be possible that the tmac might need to be programmed for WVT specifically and if it is a loaner they didn't want to reconfigure it. Not sure if this would need to be done at all, but it's a possibility.
  6. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Looks like the same trip that used to go on to do 130's. Odd that they would change that to do an NIS to Joyce for the rest of the shift instead of a short layover at metrotown. Edit: checked out the headway sheets for the 144 and this is another trip that BTC does on the 144 first thing in the morning. The one that goes onto 130's still exists.
  7. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    This could have been due to the specials being on the 601 linegroup if that was the case. Since the paddle is just "As per supervisor's instructions", but on a 601 "block" the next bus system just highlighted those two routes. Looks like 16116 might have been sent downtown to do an N19 and the operator chose to NIS back to RTC on the perimeter road. The HTC specials were high numbered blocks on the 106 so those buses might have had the 106 route highlighted even though it may have been doing something else. The paddles just used to be specials with no real block information, but in recent years, they've had actual route and runs. The specials were scheduled for 2200 to 2900 at least they were at HTC.

    9517 is at HTC on an active track, probably see it out this morning. Edit:. Should have checked tcomm first, was on the 112, 129 yesterday so it's already been here for a day.
  9. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Merry Christmas. 9735 and 9775 are on the 95 currently.
  10. The 106 is on its own almost entirely for any day and the 119 is on its own for weekdays, but interlined on weekends and holidays at metrotown.
  11. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Either testing it out to put artic's on the 240 full time or seeing how they are along Marine Dr for the new B-Line.
  12. HandyDart

    MVT Canada currently does. People were pushing to have HandyDart operated by CMBC, but First Transit had the lowest bid by allot to operate it. Not sure if CMBC put in a bid at all or who else did.
  13. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    Spotted two WVT 2009 LFS's headed westbound on Marine drive at Knight at about 1230 today being driven by mechanics. Didn't get the fleet numbers as I was driving my 100 EB, but the crest was easy to spot. Complete speculation here, but with 9671 and 9672 having just transferred to WVT from VTC, could VTC be taking these two 2009's? Curious.
  14. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    They've been there for a while.
  15. From what I heard a this routing was picked so it could have its bay on Central Blvd, but I agree they should do your idea. They want to get service back to that part of Willingdon from Metrotown which I agree with, but the 130 would make the most sense for that. Some road supervisor's submitted the idea to have the 430 serve a stop along there, but I can understand why they may not do that because when all buses switch to Central Blvd the 430 won't go along Willingdon leaving Metrotown. But the 119 serving those stops won't work well and once the 130 moves over there, I'm sure it will serve those stops and the 119 will get to Kingsway via Bonsor. I have no idea to be honest. But they seem to be popping up slowly.
