I'm just wondering, what type of shields are being installed? I just saw Winnipeg Transits the other day - they desperately needed them back home - and I haven't seen any in Calgary since i moved, but am curious what ETS is installing, in terms of shields.  

As for AC, makes sense. 

They are kind of interesting, I think it has something like a power window built in so that the driver can choose to put it down if they want.

Didn’t know there was an off the shelf solution now. The electric feature is slick. I’m impressed.

Not my photos, but I noticed one of my friends from Edmonton rode a 2007 D40LFR (4753) and it has new seats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GluG5cYETZE

EDIT: Upon doing some research, it appears that ETS is installing new seats in certain buses for hygenic reasons. The new "plastic" seats are apparently very slippery.  https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/edmonton-transit-scratches-dirty-spongy-fabric-seats-in-favour-of-plastic

4753, 4752?, 4876 have test seats that lead to the seats on 7000's, but no specific conversion program. 

The LRT replacement seats have been tendered for a 3rd time and I believe the U2's are now out of scope for that.

2018 XD40 #7018 is now a "Pride Bus", with a special wrap on it. Also the bus has a Sportworks bike rack instead of the Byk-Rak bike rack. Looks pretty nice.
