  1. 2354,2365,2381,2397 and 2438 have been retired. Several units were transferred from Nanaimo. I'll get the unit numbers when I can. I have not updated the Wiki
  2. Yes, 9072 is still active. Neither of them is used very often
  3. Yes 0233 has largely been going out on AM splits only.
  4. All new routes 1,2,3 and 9 begin service June 30th
  5. Rumour, and it's always rumour until units show up, is that we "May" get Suburban Enviros on this run....... Rumour...... Take it with a grain of salt.
  6. Something "sort of" has been done. New regulations require the use of hand brakes when stopping on a hill like this. It's not a perfect solution, but then nothing is.
  7. 2404 is now in CFV I updated the Wiki, not sure how long it's here for.
  8. This is not always true, having a GOOD partnership, with a company that pays it's bills CAN be very useful in intercity buses. The reality is, what's in it for EBus or Wilsons? Either of these companies can easily do this run if they think it's necessary, and probably better than this guy. He has taken a shot in the dark, and it's not really working out from what I can see. What he should probably do is try to find a run that isn't currently serviced, and see if he can make inroads, before potentially giving all his profit to another company. I have an example for you. Malaspina Coach lines was very successful for a long time, with no partnerships except with Greyhound on freight. They had a route to themselves and profited nicely, until BC Ferries became ridiculously expensive, and air travel became cheaper. Another example was Premier Pacific. The owner was a terrible businessman and there were some very serious issues with the company, but he had one very successful niche. He ran a very profitable run to Whistler with no partnerships. Eventually what will happen in Western Canada is either, One Company will dominate the inter city buses, or two or three will work together to do this. Either way, it's very interesting to watch.
  9. As a general rule, I TRY to Keep CFV and Chilliwack updated in the Wiki as I'm a Transit Supervisor here. My reply to you was meant to be a bit "tongue in cheek" but tone almost never translates to text LOL. As far as Transit keeping things updated? hell they told us that 9841,42 and 43 were going to scrap! I was pleasantly surprised to see 9842 go back into action in Victoria. Usually if a bus get towed out of Abbotsford, it's a goner..... We joke around here, that Abbotsford is where buses go to die. 0111 and 0232, Transit hasn't even given the shop the final word, they keep trying to get us to fix them LOL.
  10. CP Air DC-8 Air Canada DC-8, DC-9, L 10-11, 319, 146 PWA 732 WestJet 732, 73G SWA 732, 733, 735, 73G Allegiant MD-82 Flew a 747 once, but I was really young and don't remember the airline. Might have been Wardair....
  11. 9844 and 9869 are still active here in CFV, 9865 is in a body shop in Chilliwack having accident damage repaired, and is supposed to be returning to CFV when complete. 9844 may leave when we get 9865 back. 0233 may be listed as active, but it has not turned a wheel since arriving in CFV as it needs extensive repairs. Looks like you took some buses off our page that we are still using.
  12. If there is, I am currently unaware of it LOL
