I am so excited for these new Vicinity Buses here in Edmonton. To show how excited I really am to see these buses in service, I drew this picture.   

ETS 2001 outside of the Paterson Garage.

2001 in service on a route 301. Not tracking on Transit55. Tracking in Transit55 are 2002 and 2004. 2005 was tracking... seems it was changed over? Edit #1: 2005 replaced by 2011. 2011 is not tr

It was a unscheduled day trip. We'll sort things out soon!

So it looks like they started the Vicinties at 2000, not 2001 like was originally thought.  Spotted 2000 out on driver training on 51 Ave near the SuperStore earlier this week.

For the first time?!! T55 clearly shows previous blocks,

2005 was literally one of the first in service.

Great photos. 2005 was also out for the first time according to Transit55.

Weird. Now that I see it it shows that it was on different blocks prior to yesterday. 

2013 is on its first day of service (unless there's an error somewhere) and 2012 is on its second day of service (First time in service was March 29).

A lot of Vicinity's have had tracking issues. 2013 has been on the road all of this week at least. 2007 and 2011 don't track. 2005 had intermittent tracking issues etc. 2 weeks ago is about when the majority of Vicinity's hit the road. Glaval's have been relatively uncommon since and are getting scarcer. I wouldn't be surprised if the Glaval's are done now if they get a few more Vicinity's into Mitchell this weekend.

2027 did track on a Ferrier run. Presumably still out there as it stopped tracking and nothing else is on that run. 2025 heard on the radio.

Re the 2017 Vicinitys, I noticed 2000 has no info on Transit55, does 2000 even exist?

2000 coming out of Tent C for driver training today.

2007, not tracking, was on a 381.

Just etched in the 2018 order here - if anyone knows how many 2018s you guys are getting, then feel free to edit it in.

Thanks for putting in the update :)

Goes to 2048 based on the combined tender documents and recent spottings... 49 units total starting at #2000.

2006 as the Mitchell floater, finding it's way onto the route 4 for a one way trip today.

2029 crapped out at South Campus and had to be hauled back to Ferrier with a flat bed. This run changed over 2 Vicinty's the day before, before 38 had to come and finish the block.

And still going.... 38 and 40 have been making it out regularly, although they are the only 2 Passport's to see service in September so far.
