18035 replaced 18106 at 21:18, meaning that it only did the 501 roundtrip. Artics have been becoming more common on the 321 due to overcrowding/spacing concerns.

9280 was on 403 on May 22nd around 4pm

It's a 601 that does a couple of trips on a 403 in the AM rush.

I'm pretty sure it's not the 9, given the D40LFs were retired for good. However, I still have no idea why it is there. Apparently the driver said something about not being able to drive trolleys and getting instead of a Nova. I doubt that VTC is out of Novas (they never seem to be LOL), so I really don't know.

7426 is on the 2 all day. Seems like they've brought a few D40LFs out of retirement / training for some reason, since we had two out on routes yesterday and one already today.

9's don't go diesel until the new schedule begins on the 22nd which is when the 41s go to trolley's.

That new schedule is in 11 days, which still isn't far off. 2 weeks early for a project that is expected to take 5 years.
Besides, someone mentioned in another thread that the extra buses may also be needed on routes which need more social distancing.

The "new" schedule was supposed to start on May 18th.

noticed 8139 on the 130 this morning around 11:45am 

I caught that one on an unscheduled 99 to Granville this morning at about 8:45, guess they've been sending it around

One of the highest numbers of RapidBus swapouts I've seen in a while. 3 LFRs on the R5 and 2 2015 XDEs on the R1. Meanwhile, there are 3 RapidBuses on the 99, one on the 150, one on the 145 and one on the 257. I would think that they could at least take care of the R5 problem by doing a little swapping around.

well, that's pretty common for Burnaby's 99, 145, 257 and R5 and also Surrey's 503 and R1, sometimes they're depend on the schedule of the units, for weekend and holiday's 145, they must run one trip of R5 then transfer to 145
