This is what peak hour 414 service looked like coming up on 15 years ago, when the 414 was sort of the secondary route to the 401. There were 40' bus trips and probably even 60' buses used on the 414, but it was usually cutaways for a couple of early afternoon trips. 

Now of course, the 414 is the main route and the 404 the secondary route. Often the buses in use are double deckers.

I forgot to say I saw 8025 in Brooks back in January. It was also an Enviro 500. Anyone know anything more about it?

There are some additional double deckers coming, numbered 8021+, but I have been unable to confirm a quantity.

2008 is smart card reader equipped. ETS is fitting 5 buses with Smart Fare equipment to verify installation requirements before doing the rest of the fleet. I can only imagine that is why 2008 is equipped, and I would imagine that there's a Enviro 500 floating around with a card reader, or, there will be shortly anyways.

In service this afternoon. 8024 & 8025 would be brand new this year... not sure if there are any more yet!

Only one stop requested button upstairs? I guess they really want people downstairs BEFORE their stop! Victoria has stop buttons above every seat (and Vancouver). 

 

I believe this bus is a 2018?

These are used on commuter runs, so not many people stop along the route.

Also 6012-6017. 

I have a shot of 6012  from September 2015, and 6017 from April 2018.

Plate on 6017 is BRT-7275. Turns out BRT plates showed up around the Spring of 2015. 6012-6017 might all be 2015's, although, it is possible they could included unknown 2013's or 2014's.

Thank you very much for the license plate on 6017.  Yes you are correct, that set of letters was issued in 2015.

The SCAT page has been updated with the above information.  I'll have to spend some more time in the archives, to obtain further information.

BARP.ca is a very good website.  Both you and James are very good photographers.
