The ones that are late are caused by a bug with the time calculation. It happens with blocks that start really early or end really late, so it gets confused about the service day. If you do the math, 60 minutes x 24 hours = 1440 minutes, which is close to the incorrect times shown - basically it's saying those buses are one day behind schedule.

The last one is probably just signed in to the wrong trip or something.

9279 is on the 430, the 1-door boarding has kept it at 10 minutes late its past few round trips.

There is also a Nova Suburban on the 394, 18458

Update 9279 ended up going out of service at 6pm at Metrotown due to mechanical issues

On the 620??? Picks up ferry customers lol

 

I've seen 7119 and a few others do 620 times ago. So it's not a new sighting. 

Yes, we all know what the 620 is for. Seeing a suburban bus on this route is unusual.

Probably the most artics I've seen on 100 today with three 18000s on Tcomm showing. I also spotted 19001 out on a 100 via Trapp earlier, but it appears to have been taken out of service (possible mechanical issues per SMS alerts)

The 20 is on detour and dieselised because of car free day on Commercial Dr.  It is currently being run by all 40 foot buses; meanwhile the 8 has 5 21000 XDE60's with the artic trolleys on it.  One would have hoped that on a day like today, VTC would make it a priority to put the extra 21000's on the route being dieselised.

On the flipside, there are D40LF on it, presenting an opportunity for rare signs usually not seen on these buses.
