the first 35 of the 49 have arrived and will replace the remaining S13xx and S5xx in HTC. HTC should also have extra G5 to replace remaining units in PCT.

How about the 2 in WVMT?

Yeah they can't retire the 2 just yet

Then there's the 5 high-floor shuttles added to this order, if we look at the first page.

49 Low floor, then 5 high floor.

==edit==

Holdup: if you add this up, it makes sense for a couple of these low floor shuttles to end up at WVMT. 

Another conclusion can be reached: blue-top girardins are highly likely. These can go to HTC or PCT, PCT will receive spare G5s regardless.

Saw one of the new blue top shuttles on the WB HWY 1 off ramp at Braid today. Not gonna lie, they look weird with both the blue roof and A/C units.

I'm guessing it was one of the 49 ARBOCs. Did you get a number?

19501/19502 are in West Van TC.

Likely to boot out the final ElDorado Aerotech shuttles?

yes

Effectively since S531 is a writeoff, 
S501-S530, S532-S544, S1322-S1325, S1302-S1320 is 49 ElDorado shuttles needing replacing.

Are we still getting those 5 high-floor shuttles? I don't really see a point in ordering more high-floors unless they're going to First Transit.
