  1. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    As I understand things, BOTH Deckers will be running on 620's this weekend. Starting Monday, they will be running regular route/runs. Unfortunately I am not sure which ones at this time. I will try to find out for Monday.

    535 Departure from Scottsdale as a 311 610 (Approx) Departure Bridgeport as 351 WhiteRock Centre. Can't remember the rest of the times but it will be doing 351 WR Centre trips until about noon. I tend to run about five minutes in front a regular 351.

    Tuesday afternoon schedule has been cancelled. 1009 (scheduled as a training vehicle) went BO due to an apparent sensor problem. 1008 was used for training and the schedule was cancelled as it was being used as an extra (unscheduled) run only. I anticipate 1009 being back in service for tomorrow.

    This, and 1009 are Demo buses only. Any actual orders for CMBC will be specced to CMBC specs and may be quite different inside. Tuesday morning's schedule has been changed slightly from Monday's. It will be running approximately 30 minutes later in the morning and the 601 trip has been turned into a 351 White rock Centre. The afternoon trips also have been changed slightly and I do not have them handy. When/if I get them and have time I will post them.

    Yes, currently all trips are 'unscheduled'. Both the morning and afternoon trips using the Deckers appear to be created specifically for them.

    No pics as the 1009 did not go into service Friday afternoon. No training was scheduled at RTC for Friday afternoon. As I understand it, 1008 is going to be used for training operator both at RTC and STC for the moment. Primarily at STC as they expect to test the Double Deckers on the 301 also.

    If it is, please take some photo's and let me know. Thanks.

    The bus will not be out this afternoon. I was likely going to drive it but unfortunately, it was cancelled at approximately 1230. The issue this morning was very minor apparently. I was told that the bus showed either a check or stop engine light and CMBC took the safe route and took the bus out of service in order to consult with Alexander Dennis reps.

    I have been advised that at least one will be in service as of Friday AM. Training began this morning for the drivers. If I can ascertain which run and route it will be on. I will post it here.

    As it stands right now, the wait might be rather long. So far as I am aware, no driver training has been done and no drivers are scheduled for training as of Friday afternoon. There will be not likely be any one to do the scheduling of drivers for training available until Monday morning. So your waits may be rather long. From what I could gather in RTC on Friday, the public announcement caught them by surprise.

    That is a comparatively minor issue. During earlier testing it was noticed and can be temporarily dealt with by carefully instructing the drivers being trained on the DD's in how to avoid this problem. If Deckers are eventually purchased and deemed appropriate for the 620 run, maintenance can very easily fix this difficulty by some judicious relocation of some of the fencing.

    Was not saying we should not try. Just wondering about the future of humanity. LOL

    As a Richmond Resident that spends many hours walking around Richmond, I haveto wonder whether your idea would work. I find trash tossed on the ground often within feet of trash receptacles. Not that there are alot of said trash receptacles.

    Driver training was supposed to restart this week, but has again been put on hold/cancelled. The reason I was given for my training being cancelled was ' Coach Issues'.
