    Whistler Transit

    Interesting. CPTDB Wiki must be wrong then, says it was transferred back to Victoria early this year.

  4. I noticed that the Kelowna NextRide website is pretty much active. Not sure if every bus has the equipment installed but it shows basically everything in real time. https://nextride.kelowna.bctransit.com/Home/Desktop
  5. The website is now active for Victoria's NextRide system. The buses will have the system installed, slowly, within the coming months. https://nextride.victoria.bctransit.com/Home/Desktop
  6. I'll update 4060 in the Wiki Also, is Dart 9906 active? Or Dart 0102? Or Flyer 9724?
  7. 4060, 4061 recently transferred to Comox Valley

    BC Transit- Squamish

    Squamish has received 4465 and 4466 according to the NextRide website.
  9. Time for some updates; Looking at the "NextRide" website for Comox Valley, 4061 (30-ft Vicinity originally from Victoria) is now on Route 10 Fanny Bay/Downtown. My guess is it was transferred within this month. 4469 (new 35-ft Vicinity) is on Route 2 Cumberland/Anfield Centre.

    Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Haha, I'm not surprised somebody requested the lift to bring their stroller on the bus. If Victoria had lifts on the MCIs (and they were still running), people would be requesting the same thing.

    TOFINO BUS....on Vancouver Island

    Wilson's Group will officially take over Tofino bus next week. https://www.albernivalleynews.com/news/wilsons-group-acquires-16-year-old-tofino-bus-service/
  12. Thanks. I wonder why Squamish has different bike racks than Victoria and most other BC Transit systems?

    I've seen and heard that one - assumed before that it was an Allison B500R. I'm pretty sure CMBC operators would demand a raise if they had to drive a manual transmission bus!

    It would be nice to see Translink buying Enviro500 Hybrids. The only one in North America is in Victoria. It would be interesting to see an Enviro500 with ZF though.... I don't think there are any in North America.

    Does anybody know what specs the upcoming Enviro500s will be? Cummins L9 obviously, Allison B500R? Or ZF 6AP1700B?
