  1. My dad and I went to Edson and I found a 2 buses. The first one I saw was this 1990 Ford Econoline 350 (E-350) that is/was being used as an Out Of School Care (OOSC) bus. As of when I took the picture (Monday May 25th 2020) it is parked behind the Esso Station on 2nd Avenue. VIN 1FDKE30GXLHB70988 The second bus I saw was another E-Series. This one was parked on 3rd Avenue. When I got out of our truck to take a picture there was a lady inside who I can only hope was the driver taking a break that got upset with me. As of the aforementioned date this bus is being used as a Senior Citizen transport bus. Please correct me if I made any mistakes as this is pretty much my first post here!
  2. Alberta (and the territories) don't have a general photography thread yet. Here are some shots I've taken over the past year:
  3. I have noticed that Medicine Hat Transit's wiki page is very outdated. I have already gotten an admin to update some info (eg. Marking buses as retired that have been retired for years), but it is far from current. I have made contact with MHT's fleet manager, so I have some information about all kinds of things. So far, I have received some info on when various buses were retired: #743 (2002 D40LF): August, 2017, due to an accident #746, 747 (2005 D40LFs): (see below) #748-750 (2009 D40LFRs): (see below) #751-753 (2010 D40LFRs): Still active, but will be retired when the next batch of buses come in. This will happen within 5 years. #720-725 (2009 Arbocs): (See above) #730 (a 2010 Arboc): (see above) #740-745 (excluding #743): 2015 #726-733 (excluding #[731, or whichever was destroyed]): 2015 There will be a competitive bid for who gets the contract, however the large buses will be Natural gas powered. He hinted that New Flyer has had a close relationship with the city for a long time and is likely to win the contract. What other information should I ask for? Bus #743 is currently sitting in the city storage compound, and I want to go there (with permission) and take photos of it. Iam also planning on going to various scrapyards to try and find some old buses (I think I've found some using satellite images). Wish me luck!
  4. The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass is proposing to experiment with a public transit system. Currently the municipality (which is a chain of towns in the valley of the Crowsnest Pass in the Rockies) has a seniors/disability demand-responsive service called the "Town Rounder". The proposal is to use the bus for Town Rounder service on Mondays and Tuesdays, and operate a fixed route service open to everyone on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. There is more information, including a draft schedule and some route maps, on the town website. According to the 2011 Census the population of Crowsnest Pass is 5,565.
  5. Apparently they now have Transit! Found #12 parked behind a shop and then shortly after spotted #11 operating in service. I wonder how many other buses they have.
