2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

Recommended Posts

It's 2017 - Time for a new transfer and reactivation thread.

Much anticipation, especially with regards to the 10-Year transportation plan! What's gonna start us off?

Same rules as the last few years - see below:

To quote from last year:

"Please post all garage transfers in this thread along with any buses being returned to service from HTC/RTC.

Whenever possible try to include where you saw the bus, what route it was doing, and if possible a run number (not required but it's nice)."

Also: Please note that...

1: 26-29 are BTC routes and not VTC routes

2: BTC and HTC operate one bus in one day on route 016.

3: HTC operate a few trips on the 49 during rush hour

4: There is a run on the 130 linegroup which starts out as a 144 round trip before doing 130s for the rest of the day.

5: There is a 130 School Special (Moscrop) on the PM peak that is done by an HTC bus.

6: A BTC Saturday block does a few trips on the 106 before doing 130s for the rest of the day.

Alright let's see what happens in 2017. Happy Tracking!

These units are known to be in storage:

3285 3291 3298 3305
7173 7180 7181 7184 7190 7191 7195 7196 7197 7207 7208 7222 7233 7234 7241
7247 7249 7250 7251 7252 7254 7255 7256 7257 7258 7259 7260 7261 7269 7270 7271 7274 7284 7287 7289 
7301 7312 7322 7330 7339 7341 7351 7356 7369

Not even 2017 yet. And I was planning to do it at exactly 12 am...

Out of curiosity, is this some sort of yearly tradition?

HTC operates a "130 To Hastings" departing Willingdon at Deer Lake at 15:14, quickly followed by another operated by BTC. Presumably to handle the demand from class dismissal along the corridor. There is also a "110 Special" that departs City Hall at 15:10, operated by HTC as well.

I'm pretty sure that it is. As far as I can see in the history, it's been an annual thread since 2010.

Not sure of the run number, but I believe HTC runs a 401 sometime in the afternoon on weekdays

Yeap. Thats the school tripper for I believe McNair or McRoberts, one of the two. Don't know if an AM tripper exists (as it would have to come off a 410 to do so). Maybe one of the HTC ops here would know.

Yes, thats the 130 school tripper for Moscrop Secondary. Its good that they have that to counter-act the amount of buses going in the peak direction (especially with the 125).

Just a note, there is an HTC run that does one round trip on the 130 to Kootenay Loop before going onto 106s on Saturdays.

That, I never knew. Come to think of it, there still needs to be a bit of work done to the transit centeres wiki page.

A lot of photos, bus info and transit centre stuff missing from the wiki.

 

EDIT: Also a lot of bad pictures already on the wiki, some are so outdated and I find a ton of better ones on the wiki editing threads.

Not too sure if this is the right place to post this, but out of curiosity which retired buses are currently at HTC and at RTC ?

Sorry to derail, but I've noticed this too and put NUMEROUS attempts in to become an editor and been either denied or ignored. Maybe somebody here can help me with that, as I would love to update and make additions to lots of stuff o the wiki.

It took several months to around a year for me to become an editor.

Yeah this is kinda off-topic, but I recommend a lot of photos and info about the new XN40s and other such as some pictures of buses NOT on the wiki yet, but no one noticed.

Is PTC not doing any trippers on the 95 B-Line since it took over the 135?

I'm aware of that, but I was just wondering which units are at which transit center. 

There are only about a half-dozen retired buses at RTC now. 7195 is there, as well as 7270, couple of 7300s and I believe also at least one D60LF (a high-numbered unit from Poco).

There are two full tracks of retired D40LF, C40LF and D60LF at HTC.

Either PCTC is doing some 95/145 runs now, or 8022 is at BTC

That bus just passed by me a second ago. I would say its transferred since its an all day run.
