Express691 Posted January 12, 2020 Report Share Posted January 12, 2020 https://service.ariba.com/Discovery.aw/125032043/aw?awh=r&awssk=9BxdSuo6&awrdt=1# Summary of what was posted onto the Ariba site: 6 buses in the base order ...as was discussed in the March 2019 board meeting), all by Q2 2021 Options for 9 more buses, but by Q4 2021 Tight scheduling Some more pointers: The stop request strips seem to be normal across all bus orders moving forward Same thing for the USB ports If this order (+ options) goes through, Vancouver will have 19 battery-electric buses. This is enough to operate route #100 with electric buses and have a few set aside as a spare ratio. With regards to the 2019 trial, XE40 #19303 seems to have shown the most consistency among the 3 other buses. The Transit Strike of 2019 may or may not have put a large dent in overall bus maintenance in Hamilton Transit Centre (where these electric buses are kept). I'm led to believe that there is a bigger backlog for units needing larger repairs (19114//major windshield damage comes to mind as it's been sitting at HTC for God knows how long) The response deadline is February 27, 2019. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
