12024 on an all-day block consisting of the 402, 403, 404 and 407.

UPDATE as of 7:00 AM: 12024 has been taken out of service and has been replaced by 12008.

The fact that 12024 was even running should be considered a special sighting...

 

:P

12008 later replaced by 12013, which was then replaced by 12010, which was then replaced by 16102. Been a busy day for that block!

That is ridiculous. So much switching. Did every other bus break down in sequence?

To start with, 12024 is a lemon.

How is 12024 a lemon? 🍋

And also, is there a list of lemons? And if so, where is said list? 🍋

Put it this way. When it was first spotted at BTC painted in the RapidBus test scheme, I assumed that the bus had initially been sent there for other reasons.

The entire Dybrid fleet of 2009 Nova HEV's are lemons ; )

I hate Nova so I'd say all novas are lemon or just plain gross. (everyone has their own taste)

9701 has been pulled from revenue service on route 002, in order to assist residents of 1111 Beach Avenue to emergency social services due to a third-alarm fire that broke out inside a unit within the apartment building, shortly after 6pm this evening. 023's detouring via Pacific as a result.

8/9 701s today are artics; 3/4 Mission trips are artics (only the 19:50 trip is a 40').

Yes; 18034 is off to mission this afternoon, and 18042 is going there right now

18049 is the first hybrid artic on the 555... not sure if this strike related

Actually it's the first hybrid on the 555

18155 also is doing an artic block on the 503 (to Langley Ctr only)

That's usual and happens occasionally.

IIRC that's somewhat common

Despite the amount of XN40 going to aldergrove already, this is only the 2nd time I remember this happening. Not that special tbh

In fact the only special things that would happen in Surrey would be artics on anything other than 96/503/N19, or the more common 40ft on the 96 B-Line.

Out of shuttles already or a new conventional block?

The 310 apparently has been running with a conventional bus to address capacity concerns.

Same thing has been happening with the 337 because 18143 is on it right now
