  1. Edit: Never mind. Figured it out. Why do we have to use acronyms that require a google search. Can’t we just use the full names?
  2. I really really really don’t think you understand the ramifications of a strike. How much it’ll paralyze the system. So unless you’re under 5 km of a walk to a SkyTrain station, I wouldn’t hope for a strike.
  3. Saw one of the new blue top shuttles on the WB HWY 1 off ramp at Braid today. Not gonna lie, they look weird with both the blue roof and A/C units.
  4. Doubtful. Best case scenario, some university student is trolling. With Shaw being TransLinks Wi-Fi provider, I’m almost certain the Wi-Fi would be the same name as on the SeaBus. “ShawOpen”
  5. 19131 Spotted WB on I-80 in Central Wyoming early this morning. Should be here by, early next week.
  6. Oh Richmond never change. Personally, I would absolutely, not re-instate the 98. They screwed up, no B-Line for you. Want to get to Vancouver; you take what you get now.
  7. We’ve been over this time and time again. What everyone is claiming to be A/C in buses pre-2012. Is actually the drivers running the fan in the heater box in the summer. All of the rooftop boxes that we’ve seen pre-2012 non withstanding the 1998 C40LF has been just heaters/fan boxes. I swear we have this discussion at least once a year. We could probably turn it into a drinking game, with how often it comes up. Edit: No the 1998 C40LF did not have rear A/C either; so get that out of your heads. Just heating.
  8. Woah woah woah. Hold up there sunshine. Wait what?! How do you go from talking about bus transfers to like a whole other city/country. We already got a city of Hamilton, about a 1000 km away in Ontario. Don’t need a second one.
  9. If anyone was under 9724, I'm certain pictures would not have been posted on Facebook and turned into memes.
  10. ... I... what? How... okay uhh that... will not fit inside the buses. So... uhh... maybe... look at something likkkkkkkeeeeee.... thhhhhisssss? https://www.usscgroup.com/products/gt-transit/
  11. I don’t know what you were picturing in your head with a bus off a hoist. But since you asked. Here. It got turned into a meme.
  12. Hurrah for condensation in the A/C ducts! Translation: water leaking from the vents.
  13. Good to know Victoria’s buses hasn’t aged a day since my last visit in 2013. Maybe by Christmas I’ll make another visit.
  14. So I finally got a chance to check out the double decker today in person. I won’t judge the ride quality till they’re in service. But some initial thoughts; seats aren’t nearly as crappy as I thought they would be, the exterior tail pipe does not detract looks from the bus, there’s more than enough USB ports than I was expecting, i do expect a lot of arguments about the upper deck and the first three rows, if you’re over 5’9” the upper deck is not recommended, also really glad they kept the pop out rear doors. Honestly... all things considered. Some decent choices were made, as well as some okay choices. Now it’s the waiting game. Do wish they added a second iNiT display behind the stairs. Instead of that red LED stop bar. Maybe for future orders.
  15. Why not a thumbnail with a link?
  16. Spotted 449-452 still being tested today.
  17. Pretty sure they already did the consolation. But I’ve been wrong before.
  18. It is possible to have buses do both. In fact both the Xcelsiors and LFS that has been ordered; either have been or is being tested to do both.
  19. R30? What is this insulation?! I know that’ll be for the 430, but what the hell is 21? North shore?
  20. Peak Hours only. A la 43 circa 2014. Every 15 minutes peak hours only. Both directions.
