Well the latest rumour out of VTC is that the 2009 LFS and 2016 XD40 are swapping positions. Just a rumour, not confirmed.

I can say that this rumour may have been the result of a misunderstanding and is probably not going to happen, at least not this year.

I'm a bit surprised that TransLink did not optimize on the charcoal for aesthetic and maintenance reasons. Personally, I might have painted it so that the paint lines go around rather than through the various seams and joints of the bus... Now the website and bus labels on the sides are squished for no good reason...

Baby steps, at least they remembered to put the charcoal on this time. 😝

They're apparently full wraps this time, not a mix of paint and decal that makes the retired shuttles still recognizable with said decals removed.

Is the fleet number centered?

Looks like it.

Some people wouldn't be happy with that if they ever put garage prefixes on these. Still better than the sloppy fleet numbers on buses like 7282 though.

Pretty sure I saw 18147 yesterday.  It was definitely one in the 140's.  They are rolling these into service at a pretty good clip - which is great!

Looking at Tcomm, I see that 18101-18128, 18130-18140, 18143, and 18146 have entered revenue service so far. It was probably 18146 you saw, as 18143 wasn't in service yesterday.

Spotted WB Hwy 1 through Chilliwack this afternoon around 2pm one of the new 183XX's Unable to get a number as I was travelling EB. Destination sign was lit up with all orange dots & then scrolling to a blank screen.
