  1. 9203 Has been transferred to Chilliwack, all the buses 9201 to 9210 will soon be Chilliwack buses. the new Girardins are also in service. 9315 to 9318 will be transferred out, probably to Victoria. I'll try to get the list of Arbocs that were replaced soon. Again, I simply don't have time to update the Wiki, my apologies. As a note, one Chilliwack bus will be posted to Abbotsford moving forward, as a backup in case of a breakdown on the 66. they don't want to use the CNG buses on the run, until Chilliwack switches over at a future date.
  2. Unit numbers are 2779-2783 Sorry I don't have time to update the wiki.
  3. 5 New Girardins are currently in Abbotsford, getting final delivery prep to be put into service in Chilliwack. I'll get the unit numbers later.
  4. It's not about Nimbys, It's about what the city is willing to pay for. From the City side, Translink is far more expensive.
  5. There may be plans for Silverdale service, but everything was held back thanks to Covid. Mixing routes from Translink and BC Transit is highly unlikely, as you cant simply transfer, and people hate paying twice. I can tell you that a bus from Mission to Agassiz, is in the long range plans, but it's unknown how far out that will be. Th Silverdale area is part of the City of Mission (new, as it used to be district of Mission) and as such it would have to be served by BC Transit, the express bus 701 being the exception, as it replaces the old "Trainbus" service.
  6. Yeah 9869 left in a hurry. Not sure where it went.
  7. The First 4 4200s will hit the road on Monday March 15, 2021
  8. Not quite yet it hasn't. still in our inventory, and plated.
  9. The problem is that, even though the benefits of rail corridors, have been proven time, and time again, the high upfront cost for development, are hard to justify to taxpayers. The exception is when the taxpayers themselves are asking for the investment. Redeveloping the E&N corridor would be quite expensive, no matter the numbers you use. Having it run by VIA would be a huge mistake in my book. Properly developed, this corridor, with feeder buses running to and from it, would fundamentally change the way transit works on the Island, especially if all the systems were coordinated, into a regional system. I just don't see it happening. Calgary to Edmonton, with its nearly flat landscape would be an excellent spot to work on a high speed rail corridor. I know that the population density isn't high between the cities, but that's exactly why I think it could work. Downtown to downtown in about an hour, would be perfect to test the viability of High Speed rail in Canada.
  10. Should upload these to the wiki, we don't have any pics of this series yet.
  11. They have the CNG sticker, so I think it's the new norm, we'll see when the rest of this group arrive.
  12. Interesting note, 1203 and 1204 are here in the yard, these are the first CNG Flyers I've seen that dont have the green wrap on the tail.
  13. The rest of the New CNG Flyers are trickling in now.
  14. All 15 of our CNG buses are on the road. Some of our Novas have been transferred out, and others will be soon. we have two 98 series left, but not for long. Some are in storage at the old yard now.
  15. The first three CNG buses went into service today 1187, 1190, and 1196
