West Vancouver Update. Im told this has already been posted somewhere however i dont see it in the WV Thread. Two or Three Arbocs are now painted if not all by now. September 4th sees WV taking over all Shuttle Routes in North Van C15 227 plus the 214 which is Coventional during peak. This will mean some CMBC shuttles being transferred to Westvan. Conventional Hybrids for 2018 and last but not least. Fishbowl 61 got out a few weeks ago and wants to play more! Stay Tuned

Should have a it conditioning, I thought it was a standard.

Also they're numbered 17501-17505 for 5 arbocs, the first 4 of which have arrived according to ShuttleWV

Hopefully they go to Hamilton. There are a lot of seniors and older people with disabilities I know that have to ride the shuttle routes in Richmond.

It shoulld have a farebox installed by Friday if not already. Much wiring going on with all units and some now have the Init etc. Also another two used Shuttle buses should be joining the fleet

17502 is in service today

17503 is on route 227 but the fare box, Compass card reader and T-Comm aren't working so that why it's not showing on T-Comm.
