Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings


Recommended Posts

Its soooooo nice to have full buses on the 406 - for one, my ass doesn't go flying out of my seat, the second it hits a bump at full speed (example: near Bishop O'Byrne). But secondly, reminds me of Winnipeg, where every single route had a full bus at all times. Kind of reminds me of home, in a weird way...

That being said, seems the 406 is a hotspot for D40LFR's. I've barely seen any since leaving Winnipeg, and now every single day... theres always one on the 406.

Ill touch on the artics. After the october snow storm last year, transit worked on a plan to continue to provide a full, or as close to a full amount of service as possible. One of the things that was

The 14 lost its big bus keys on the Weekends. Never seen shuttles on that route before.

Today is the big move day - Stoney is being populated with all of it's buses needed for service starting Monday throughout today.

This is only out of the ordinary in the context of Calgary Transit's COVID-19 service, but I noticed a 40-footer operating on Route 1 earlier. Transit55 shows two of those (7794 and 7937) are on the route today. Route 1 has been typically an articulated route all day since the April 6 service change.

So this is kind of interesting. 

I was browsing T55 a few minutes ago and noticed 7763 as the 153 on the segment of Stoney that isn't even open yet. Maybe a GPS glitch but it was heading north as you see by the screenshots. It's now travelling EB Fish Creek Blvd after getting off the NB ramp of the unopened Stoney Tr lol.

Quite a sight for sure! This is the first time shuttles ran in Bridlewood since the March 2012 signup when shuttles were tested and failed miserably (overloads) on the 14 during weeknights. Prior to that was likely the mid-2000s when the 15 served this community.

Most artics aren't out this morning and the ones that are are mostly on the 10, 302, Max Yellow, and Max Teal

Adding on to that ... the 12, 52, 125 and 178 have artics on them this PM rush.

I'd say for right now it's a little out of the ordinary; 7919, normally an Anderson bus, is in service on a 14

I saw 7920 in service on the 36 earlier.  Not tracking though.
