    Collisions and Incidents thread

    Minor incident at SFU involving 16201's right mirror.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong. I feel like the 15th St hill is a little steeper than Burnaby Mtn Pkwy. People don't need to climb over a concrete barrier at those stops.

    Translink Refurbishments

    Does repainting it from the red B-Line livery to the yellow B-Line/Sweep livery not count as a refurb?

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Reminds me of the time (about 3 years ago) a ST operator kneeled the bus then deployed the ramp. This caused one end of the ramp to be off the ground.

    Howe/Seymour streets are part of Highway 99. If Howe/Seymour streets are closed to traffic except buses, where will traffic go? Howe/Seymour and Georgia streets are a major connection between Hwy 1/Hwy 99 in West Van and Granville St to Richmond.

    I believe he's talking about the older 2000 D60LF's that were used on the 98 B-Line. The small black box seen above the window near the middle joint was a radio transmitter that sent a signal to upcoming traffic lights that would tell the light to either: stay green until the bus goes through, or shorten the green for cross traffic if the light was red. I believe most of them are either disabled/removed after the cancellation of the 98 B-Line.

    Because it's not necessary and a waste of money. Why would you waste money to relocate trolley wires, bus stops, street parking just because a bus loop is too small? If there were any service expansions, wouldn't it make more sense to add more bus stops on the street instead of relocating an entire loop? Take Marine Drive Station for example, remember all those route extensions you mentioned? Marine Drive is too small to handle more buses. With that logic, they should close Marine Drive bus loop and relocate all the bus stops on to the street.
