  1. I thought TL was ordering only electric vehicles moving forward. Xde60 is hybrid
  2. Why are these coming back? Is it due to the 9 losing trolleys? They just got shifted to the 41, so why the need for more D40LF's?
  3. As much as i know the outcome is going to come either way, i prefer if they stick to the lower investment options, i will be sad if all buses operating on our roadways are 100% electric. There should be a healthy mix. The depots that use Diesel bus right now should be electric, but the depots with CNG/RNG are already using low carbon vehicles. Hope CNG vehicles continue to operate beyond the current life cycle : )
  4. Are they keeping some D40LF's as spares moving forward? Seems like every new bus is now in service, so that's good news.
  5. These buses are officially my new favourite in the system, they have great engine and transmission sounds : )
  6. i wonder why a single D40LF is out of VTC. Also why do they never give any spare D40LF's to BTC? They haven't seen a D40LF since Nova HEV's arrived in 2009
  7. There's only maybe 17 D40LF's left in service with 10 XN40's to go. Are we going to keep a few stragglers around? Maybe we keep a handful until the next bus expansion?
  8. Why are D40LF's going to PTC? I'm confused.
  9. If the shutdown proceeds, are we gunna see an increase in bus service across the region and temporary routes that follow the skytrain line?
  10. I'm still confused how they are going to address routes that aren't RapidBus, the amount of new vehicles coming in create a surplus of RapidBus units, shouldnt TL request some of the 2019's to come in standard livery?
  11. I want this strike to end so that no extra cars end up on the road making congestion worse. im all on the bus driver side though, give them what they want and call it a day
  12. I like the electric XE40, sounds kinda like the trolleys. i might be okay with a future of all electric vehicles. Second note, the Nova LFS-E also sounds great. This may be the first Nova that i actually enjoy, though the new HEV's are nice too
  13. The entire Dybrid fleet of 2009 Nova HEV's are lemons ; )
  14. Fleet Allocation: 9 Electric Bus to HTC 39 40 Footers - Likely to VTC? That would move the remaining LFS to Richmond? 30 60 Footers - Likely to RTC & PTC? Sounds like the future of Burnaby will be Electric Bus rather than hybrid?
  15. This makes more sense, send the 2019's to STC, no transfers to HTC necessary except for the ones already sent to accommodate the 340.
  16. Add the Marine Dr RapidBus in North Van to that list.
  17. Does anyone know what 60 footers HTC will receive before Monday? also will btc be running below capacity until the rapidbus begins?
  18. I think most of htc’s 2016 xn40’s are going to stc to make room for the 2019 xn40’s
  19. These service hours increase during peak hours, does vtc have the additional trolley’s to add the peak hour service to 5/6? looks like HTC will need 3-4 more busses as well. also wonder if we will see some more 60 footers transferred to STC for the 503? I feel like we will see some D60LF’s sticking around a tiny bit longer
  20. Isnt TL's long term plan to be 80% electric, 20% diesel? in which only Shuttles & Suburbans are Diesel?
  21. Or they could do something like Commercial > Langley with a new OMC around Langley?
  22. I think the general consensus is that the 2016 XN40's at HTC willl be transferred out to STC 1:1 with incoming 2019 XN40's. I think VTC will just end up keeping all their Nova's for expansion, same with BTC. Where else are we going to put them? I think RTC is at capacity.
  23. Or they will re-deployed onto other routes to increase service. You can assume the 7 D60LF's will be retired, therefore Surrey will have 3 extras.
  24. So will some of the 2019 Artics that are being ordered come in standard livery or are they going to just use RapidBus vehicles on non-RB routes? There's also the 503 to consider
