    Can confirm that this was in place in '09. Supervisors were still on the street, but with the help of the coordinators and/or the laptop in their truck they were able to track the last coach to arrive and would hold everybody until then.

    These have the T suffix at the end, e.g. 342/14T. There's also a VT suffix and I can't remember what the V stands for. There's also an R suffix which IIRC means it contains a road relief. There's an A suffix and I have no idea what it means. There are even some completely unrelated routes that go on the same run; I remember one run card where there were two northbound 197s followed by an inbound 5. I think it was 197/03. It's also common with the tunnel routes to have some unrelated routes grouped together (e.g. 101 and 150) and I'm not sure what logic they use to choose the route number on that one.

    Metro doesn't own the vans. They have regular plates and Hopelink operates them from their own facilities almost completely independent from Metro.

    That's right, forgot about the tunnel closure. Looks like the layover was at 7th & Blanchard, except for some turnbacks to Union 174 Jun07.pdf

    Probably one of the only places they could get layover curb space downtown and it was near CPS so you had relative parity with the tunnel routing. Unless it served both CPS and 9th & Stewart in which case I have no idea

    Why is there still so much dieselization on weekends?

    H/T to @Express691 and @aznichiro115 for watching the tracker; 7302, 7303, and 7305 have hit the streets in the last two days. I only noticed the latter two this afternoon, both on route 271. Managed to snag a few exterior pics:

    Attached is this shakeup's Route/Base cross-reference list and here is the one from last shakeup for all your comparison needs. Only one you missed was 114 moving from Bellevue to Central Fall 2018 Route-Base Cross Reference List.pdf

    TransLink in Seattle today

    It was headed the same direction as I was, I was on a bike 6 lanes away. Couldn't catch much beyond the paint scheme. I'm about 50% certain it had a rear window.

    Could have been.

    TransLink in Seattle today

    It was moving too fast for me to snap a pic of it, but today I saw a D40LFR in Seattle today. Couldn't make out the full extent of the destination sign but it was 5-6 characters and began with AB. New Flyer has a facility about 12km to the south, but the vehicle was traveling south to merge on to the freeway going north, so I'm at quite a loss.

    Not all the new Gilligs will be green. Can't make out the number but 74xx is blue/purple (I can't tell the difference). Also, 6240-6241 exist, though I don't see what order these are part of on the wiki. They look pretty much the same as any of the other RapidRide coaches.
