In North Vancouver there are a lot of 1991, 92, and 95 D40HF's. We have a few 1987-89 Classics that will be gone in the next 4 weeks. During the rush hour we sometimes see D40LF's on trippers provided by Burnaby Transit Center. Sometimes I've seen D40LFR's on North Van Trippers on the 211 Seymour.

Well to back up Georges post about Vancouver and the flyers representing Vancouver, I have to say they do represent Vancouver more than the Sky Train does. I don't know why but the flyers seems to represent Vancouver.

Anyway common buses for me. I'll put them in order of most common to least common.

D40is

D60LFs

Orion VIs

Orion Vs (97/98)

Classics

D40HFs

LFSs

Orion Vs (91/92)

Fishies!!! ;):D :angry:

Yeah it's sad that the Fishies are at the bottom of my list :blink:

Routes serving my area:

YRT

2 - D40LFs, Orion Vs and VIs (home route)

91 - D40LFs, D40HFs Orion Vs, the odd Classic (home route)

3 - Orion Vs, Orion VIs and Classics, sometimes DLF40s

I'm at the intersection point of 2 and 91 so I can take either. Southbound 91s go as close as possible to my house. I will rarely take a northbound 91. 3s serve my area as well but they don't serve anywhere I go to or come from!
