Off topic, but that looks like 760 or 761 in behind. Do they ever use them for anything other than training? My visit to Medicine Hat last year 760 was doing route training again.

That was 760. 761 was on the 41 right behind it. They are both in regular service, but 760 got a seat cut up on Sunday. Until the seat gets re-upholstered (remember the ETS upholstery is still underneath), it's on non-revenue duties.

See this document to see what buses were in service when (as well as some other things).

If you come here again in the future, download DoubleMap. It shows you what buses are out if you tap on the bus icons

It would be nice to have some subsidy if a company wanted to run a specific route. 

I mean even a few million dollars would go a long way.

Would subsidizing a central terminal in say Winnipeg for everybody to come in and out of be beneficial to building service?
