18058 with a new bike rack. Seems like the one generally used is discontinued looking at the Sportworks website.

Do they have enough spares of the old modded version to outfit the LFR fleet? Or can they do a similarly-modded version of the new model?

Not too sure, although they could always take the demonstration racks

Interesting. Those are the new style of bike racks that BC Transit is now using on their buses. Ours are black though instead of silver.

238 appears to have been fitted with LED headlights

Edit: it "appeared" because of sunlight reflection. So, 238 doesnt have LED headlights

TransLink implementing mandatory face covering policy
 

Quote

Beginning Monday, August 24, TransLink will require customers to wear non-medical masks or face coverings while on board transit vehicles.  This step is essential to ensuring customers have confidence riding transit as British Columbia’s economy continues to reopen and more people commute around the region.

“Physical distancing is not always going to be possible on transit, particularly once more riders return to the system,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond. “Customer confidence is key to rebuilding ridership in the context of this pandemic and we believe this step is important to bring many of our riders back.  We’ve listened to transit users who want to see face coverings made mandatory on transit vehicles.”

Customers who are unable to wear face coverings due to an underlying medical condition or disability will be exempt from this policy and won’t be asked to wear a mask or face covering.  These customers will have the option to request a TransLink branded card which notes they are exempt from wearing a face covering. The cards will be made available at Compass Customer Service Centres at Stadium-Chinatown and Waterfront Stations.

Counted 5 or 6 2xx series sets doing Expo Line work today, this may be due to the work going on at waterfront station.

All the mk1s I saw today were 4-car sets as well (and theres at least 3)

On Friday morning I spotted ex-Edmonton Transit #43, an Eldorado Passport, on Highway 1 near 200th Street in Langley.

Also, was it mentioned that someone at one point saw a cutaway vehicle painted up in King County Metro colours? Because I think I saw it in the Newton area today, but I was too far away to get a good look...

Not sure where to post this.  

Do any buses in Vancouver have the proper driver door (that swings out and locks)? Has TransLink retrofitted all the air conditioned buses with shields?

Trolleys & 2018 Novas and yes, they expedited the retrofitting when the pandemic started.

I didn’t say anything but Spark Corn in Chilliwack has one that they use.

All the Xcelsiors have received the Plexiglas shields.

The trolleys are the only LFR buses getting the Plexiglas retrofits. The C40LFRs, D40LFRs, D60LFRs and D60LFRs only have shower curtains.
