trolleybus on route 36 on a Sunday... Saw this last weekend (the 17th), strange that 36 was the only route they were being used on

Wow. It's been a crazy year (or two... or three?), but that picture reminds me of why I love cities and why I love transit. Thanks for sharing. A welcome treat. An indisputable reminder that, current challenges notwithstanding, cities and transit have a bright future.

On Sunday, was 4556 the lone unit running? Or was the entire 36 equipped with trolleys?

It was the entire 36, for some reason, but none of the other routes.

First Hill, Seattle - Federal Way P&R.

KCM, rt. 193 peaks (4701) New Flyer Xcelsior Charge XE40. 2021 Bus. I had my first time riding the bus, coach number 4701 on rt. 193 from First Hill, Seattle way to FW P&R, and Freeway I-5. The bus interior count 4+4+4+3+20 total 35 seats and back stair floor increase added a 1 seat total to 20 seats! I didn't like it. The little 40 length ft is awful.

Hey, Yes I know talk about it did not like the little 40 length ft feels not comfortable, less than a seat and anyone my favorite the articulated bus more is better than little 40 length ft always.

Does metro still have coaches 1752 to 1755? If so, are they going to be put back into service? I personally prefer them over the 4700s and 4800s

No, KCM has received original training no passengers coaches from 1750 to 1759 by Electric Battery. 1752-1755 sent to Portland, OR now. Double fleet new buses coach 4700’s is a very slow arrive not running in the service and 4800’s more arrives in the service is faster running on time every weekly is quick.

I always found the bold numbers on the front sign of route 8 buses interesting. All the new and revised routes from last shakeups have normal numbers on the front but bold digits on the driver's and rear boards.

Yes, they did. I met the person 12 times with Thomas of Metro took a driver coach number (8056) XDE60 on rt. 8. His work at the driver night on rt. 8.

When are more XE40s starting service?

 

Already KCM has received only one service coach number 4701 to continue active and more than 60 fleets are very slow later this week now more articulated bus coach number 4800’s XE60 arrives quickly than XE40.
