2023-2025 Community Shuttle Replacement + Expansion


Express691

Recommended Posts

Based off September 2023 board agenda meeting - there's some stuff lining up.

So far:
23601–23606 are G5 currently sitting inside VTC.
23651–23665 are G5 set to replace 175xx operating for TransDev in Langley and Bowen Island.

Therefore, assume the following:

23601–23606 - likely these will replace 2017 arboc operating in West Van, unless they transfer in additional 19xxx Arboc.
23651–23665 - repacing 17549 thru 17564 for 15 units
48 shuttles due for 2024 replace remainder of 2016/2017 G5s plus 4 expansion
34 shuttles due for 2nd half 2024 replace 2018 units plus 7 expansion
65 shuttles due for Q4 2024 thru Q1 2025 replace 54 shuttles from 2019 plus 11 expansion

Are all of these Ford based?

The first two are, there’s hard evidence already

not sure about the following three, I guess we’ll know as they come.

Maybe the original procurement for the 21000 shuttles has details, but I doubt that’s of relevance now. Funny enough it mentions a batch of 9 And then 73, which is the same as the current orders for 48 and 34 collectively.

Been on my tippy-toes all week for the quarterly meeting agenda minutes, maybe that’ll have some info.

23651 is on Bowen Island

More of a cycle these days, apparently. They’ll cycle out whatever needs fixing.

gonna have to rely on the Langley spotters to note whatever else needs to go into service; all the CMBC ones are in service as of today.

I really hope that the units to replace the 2018 Transdev units would be Arboc low floor shuttles rather than more giardin g5

My guess is the Transdev employees have not been trained to operate or maintain low-floor shuttles and instead keep ordering G5s. Could be completely wrong.
