A person or persons have been throwing rocks at vehicles travelling on Hwy 99 from the pedestrian overpass between King George & 152nd St. 9678 got a fair size rock in the drivers front windshield garage bound after completing a "350' on the evening of Nov 26.

9668 was involved in what appeared to be a solo MVA at 49th and Arlington, today around 12:30 pm.

I say "appeared to be" because I didn't see any other vehicle on the scene, but the bus had clearly been making the right turn onto 49th off Arlington, but somehow ended up climbing the curb onto the sidewalk, and the right side of the bus was wedged firmly against the light standard...

Thats one of those turns where one needs to be extra, extra patient and take as much room as you can.  So glad they moved the stop sign back 52nd Street and 28th Ave in Tsawwassen - at least now you can make that right turn without having to wait for the WB cars going down 28th to clear.

Coincidence... I was a passenger on a 430 bus that was passing by... the bus driver decided to pull over and assess the situation. Very bizarre...

I've done the 26 once, but that was in my first week on the job out of class, and furthermore that was before the routing through Champlain Heights was changed in conjunction with the re-routing of the 49 off of 54th Avenue, so I don't remember for sure if that turn from Arlington existed then.

All I do remember is making a wrong turn into a cul-de-sac at Frontenac and Hurst and having to back out.

I did the turn during training.  Not a difficult turn, just really need to be patient so you can set yourself up properly.  Doing the 49 or 430, seen lots of 26 drivers get really impatient and cut that corner real darn close.  Its just one of those turn where you have room to make it, but you have to wait for that room.

Heres an unusual one: R19410 suffered a flat tire earlier this afternoon. (Rear Right). Must have hit something huge to cause a flat.

Happens more often than you may think.  Lord knows I've had my share of flats over the years, a few blowouts - thankfully never the steer tires, always the drive or tags - fingers crossed.  Just happens sometimes, even without puncturing the tire.
