Is it possible to buy a compass card day pass for the following day at a Sky Train station. I have booked a 3 day trip from Ontario to Vancouver in mid-September.

To my knowledge, any daypasses/compass single tickets not purchased directly from the compass offices expire the day it is purchased.

Best to load your compass card online with your daypass the night before exploring.

Found an image of the interior of the Burrard Chinook. I’m so glad to see TransLink is continuing the trend of going backwards when it comes to comfortable seating. Is it really that difficult to make softer seats with vandal-proof seat covers?

RapidBus day at HTC again.

No doubt... if 18006 holds out there will be rapidbus 134/136 which a few of my buddies have been waiting for to happen.

I think they managed to select the blocks that did the most 410/340s (in addition to 100 this time).

There's around 8 or 9 rapidBus 99s out in additoon to one on the 240, 257, and 701.

Heatwave level 2 warning in effect at the time of posting.

But if heat waves be “not rare” this year, why doesn’t the wiki says 410 & 340 have XDE60’s?

You need to understand that the Wiki is run on a volunteer basis, so it only gets updated when people have time. Further, XDE60s are only appearing on the 340 and 410 due to unusually high temperatures that probably (hopefully) won’t persist for much longer. Updating the Wiki with these limited occurrences would be misleading to those who are unfamiliar with our transit system as it would lead some to believe this is a more common occurrence.
