    Collisions and Incidents thread

    Saw the aftermath of an XN40 vs sedan this morning on Marine Drive and 70th Ave. I want to say 16036 or 16038. But again it was like 7am.

    Maybe... but again that’s up to ICBC and/or CMBC. Plus there’s other factors as well; steel frame, wiring, as well as age. At this point it’s all speculation. Maybe she comes back, and maybe she doesn’t.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    80m on all three.
  4. Honestly I like this design the most. It’s like a cross between the old scheme and the new orange on the wayfinding signs. But personally I’d ditch the charcoal and make it white or silver. But I definitely like it!

    2018 SkyTrain Procurement

    It’s probably in front of the convoy. Every province has different rules for long loads. Some need pilot cars, some don’t.
  6. Damn that looks good! It’s aged like fine wine, and not like my nana.
  7. Thats... not bad. Replacing the green with the orange. Hell it looks like a proper demo scheme! Like again one of those cases that I’d love to see in person.

    Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    N10 to the list as well. I’ve been passed up before when leaving downtown. Ive also had N19s no show for their downtown bound trips before. 🙄

    Ad-wrap reports

    8061 has a brand new Telus wrap. Think of it as a very long Telus service vehicle. Was on the 99 as of 8am.

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Don’t be a jerk just cause you live somewhere where you can walk outside and catch a bus and not even think about it.

    Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Wow that’s different! I thought y’all were talking about the temp paper signs. But this is impressive! I get the lack of stop number... but at the same time... eh if it’s a temp thing it’s a temp thing. I do wish they didn’t have the part about texting bus times if they don’t have a stop number.

    2018/2019 Electric Bus Project

    It’s 42’ and has a tag axle. It’ll have the same turning radius as a motor coach. Even then, if you’ve got a lifting tag; it’ll be about the same as a standard 40’. If you’ve got a turning tag then it’ll be even tighter like 35’.
  14. With every plan, you’re gonna have to make sacrifices. $7bill for a tunneled extension plus LRT as well as rolling stock, plus LRT ops isn’t cheap. In all honesty phase two for billions is a hell of a steal. Look at the costs associated with LRT expansion in Seattle or to the Red Line extension in LA. Contrast that to what we’re getting with approval and you tell me. I give it till phase 3 or 4 before we see expansion to UBC. You’ve got to get past all the rich point gray NIMBYs first. Based on the last ex I had from that neck of the woods... good luck.
  15. How much more work do you think phase 2 needs to justify the $7.3 billion price tag?
