Btw, I am working on a route list. On to...


MARCH 24, 2018 (Lonver, LF) TransMetro has completed construction of the 998 BRT and the 9th busway.

The 998 BRT has been planned for 5 years, as part of the new sustainable growth strategy adopted by the City of Lonver and the City of Yale in 2009. Included in this strategy yet to be constructed include the Eastside Line, the Prior Street busway and Burbee corridor rapid transit. The area is the fastest growing corridor in all of Western Canada, making it a prime candidate for future upgrade to MRT or LRT. 

The 9th busway was constructed as a cheap way to speed up bus service on the 9th St corridor. The original road was 3 lanes per direction, with a narrow, unsafe sidewalk for all the foot traffic along the corridor. One lane in each direction was converted to bus only, while another was converted to a wider sidewalk with bike lane. Overhead pedestrian flashers were installed every 200 metres, with pedestrian and bus priority at intersections.

Starting April 9th, Bowdale Station will undergo a massive renovation to better manage trains and your commute.


The existing trackwork will be done in two phases:

Phase 1 will create 2 new platforms (platforms 2,3 and 4) to accommodate trains while the existing one will be demolished for new tracks. Platform 2 will be permanently closed and relocated.


Phase 2 will relocate Platform 1 and finish installing new trackwork and removing old tracks. The old Platform 1 will be closed and relocated.

Update: Our D901s are all retired, with the exception of 6905. All of our NovaBus Classics (6500-6545) are now in service.

We will be installing bike racks on every bus except for 6905. The bike racks cannot be installed on that bus due to mounting issues.

Haven't posted here in a while...

Here's a roster of upcoming Articulated bus purchases for SEPTA

Local buses are paint in the basic SEPTA white with a red-purple-blue fade stripe above the windows.

Direct buses are in the BRT "DIRECT BUS" livery: navy blue paint with a yellow rear and a navy blue, green, yellow vinyl wrap applied on the sides
