If they need to use D40LF to increase capacity on the 555. It is maybe time for the 555 to get 15 minutes frequency seven days and all day excluding peak periods will be keep the same.

I got the chance to ride the 555 both ways on 7438 this afternoon and on both rides the bus was somewhat full with maybe about 10 seats available. If this how it is during 30 minute frequency then, when they increase it to about every 15 minutes the bus should be half empty or maybe even less on board.

Additionally, at the time this was posted, they were doing PM peak trips.

Currently, Retirement export does not show any BTC on 214 on the PM rush; it is suggested that either they moved all BTC trips on the route to the AM rush, or the bus that ran the trip in the PM got called in to replace another bus, which means it was listed with that bus' block instead of listing as a 214.

12004 and 12009 each did one-way trips on the 404 this morning. The first two trips of the day southbound (eastbound). Both became 403s at Riverport, and one became a 480 and the other a 49 (I think the one that became a 49 was a 480 first, but I can't check since T-Comm doesn't work on the first day of a new sheet). The second one would have been my regular 404 if I still worked where I used to work. I had a highway bus once after taking that same 404 (about 6:20 from Brighouse) for 2.5 years, but never an artic. And now an artic appears AS THE REGULAR BUS after I'm done working there. Sheesh.

From NinjaBusFan, this bus was scheduled on this block at the beginning of the day.

Im expecting it to be switched out before it goes on the 430, but there are Christmas Shoppers at Metrotown that could require the extra load.

If I'm not mistaken, it's doing the 430 as we speak. http://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus/12023
