Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

Didn’t it used to have artics?

Artics were common on the route before the November 2018 changes when it went from COP to 17 Avenue/68 St SE.  In its current iteration (after November 2018) however, the 305 strictly uses 40-foot buses, therefore, articulated buses are considered uncommon on the 305 nowadays.

When I first moved to Bowness the 305 was always artic (I lived right by the stop at 46th Ave and 84th Street so when I drove it on spare board I could quickly go home for a drink and say hi to my cats). However when I signed on it I only had 40 footers and that was just after it changed to COP (which was stupid in my opinion as I went ages without a passenger going to or from COP.)

idk if this is out of the ordinary but an xd40 is on the 96

8215 has been hiding at vp for the last week or so for some resson. I’d consider an XD on a VP run out of ordinary.

 there is also one on the 75

SG bus on an AG run, that appears to have come out of SG. Definately out of ordinary.

Ok wasn’t sure

how about the xd on the 30?

It is an SG bus operating on a VP route, so that typically is out of ordinary.

For future reference, if you’re using Transit 55 or Transsee to find your out of ordinary spottings, I’d recommend looking at the bus history for the block. If you don’t know what definitely should be on a route, the list of previous buses should give you an accurate gauge of what garage the trip is supposed to run out of.

 

To add to the interesting grabs on the 30, 6034 is on a 40ft trip tonight.
