  1. I’ve seen Universal coaches staged on Deltaport Way just off of Hwy 17 as recently as last week. I’m guessing they may be running shuttles for the new amazon warehouse that opened up nearby (pure speculation, but there really isn’t anything else that would be open in that area).
  2. Two UVic students dead, several injured in bus rollover near Bamfield https://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/two-uvic-students-dead-several-injured-in-bus-rollover-near-bamfield-1.23946035
  3. Island bus company Wilson’s Transportation Ltd. grows in Vancouver https://www.timescolonist.com/business/island-bus-company-wilson-s-transportation-ltd-grows-in-vancouver-1.23626105
  4. I believe the Drivers at Wilson’s are unionized. But not the company as a whole
  5. The end of an era. Just checked with someone I know for confirmation. Apparently CBL (or whatever groups of companies it is), has purchased some of the equipment
  6. This one was parked in a small lot on 76 Ave just west of king George in surrey, not sure if it’s still there. There was also an articulated former transit bus and an H3-45.
  7. Or for charter work. On the 12th there were 4 of their coaches with that paint scheme parked at the Tsawwassen Park n Ride.
  8. They got 6 buses from PCL. I don't know the unit numbers, but if I find out I'll post them.
  9. Looks like the repercussions of losing the ferry work are coming to light. http://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/mobile/pacific-coach-workers-to-strike-over-layoffs-no-severance-pay-1.2695246 Does cantrail own PCL or is it the other way around? Is this just a way to force the union employees out?
  10. And it's out now. Different tow truck company than the one that was first here pulled it out. Looks like the front bumper is toast and a few others fibreglass pieces were put inside. Not to mention any hidden damage. Prevoat H3-45 (#230) has replaced it
  11. Theres a Universal J4500 in the ditch by Canada Post on Ferguson Rd in Richmond. Everything forward of the tag axle is either in soft grass, or in the ditch. The driver said it "rolled away by itself". Sorry for the potato quality photos (I think it's 397) https://i.imgur.com/ZOT3t29h.jpg https://i.imgur.com/J69V72wh.jpg
  12. New business for Wilson's (also posted this in the PCL thread, but it belongs here too I think). http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/wilson-s-to-take-over-ferry-bus-service-from-pcl-1.2092395
  13. Turns out you were right. http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/wilson-s-to-take-over-ferry-bus-service-from-pcl-1.2092395
  14. Doesn't say who the coach belonged to (unless I missed it). http://www.vancouversun.com/touch/news/metro/crash+Highway+south+Chase+leaves+hurt+critical+condition/11258894/story.html?rel=813152
  15. Just noticed this on the global news website today, a video showing a driver apparently using a smartphone while driving with passengers onboard. More attention in the news (for the wrong reasons). http://globalnews.ca/news/2121625/video-reportedly-showing-bus-driver-texting-while-driving-under-investigation/
