We asked the Buzzer blog readers two weeks ago if you had a favourite TransLink bus to ride.
Each commanded 27 per cent, 25 per cent, and 20 per cent of the votes respectively.
Gennifer said her favourite buses were the Orion Vs and New Flyer XD40s/XDE60s because they are the only buses on the fleet with air conditioning.
I voted for the Orion V in the poll, because I really like the comfortable seats and A/C, but I also really like the Xcelsiors, mostly also because they’re air conditioned.
Reva agreed, adding the wide aisles and seating arrangement are a nice touch.
The Xcelsiors are great… quiet, solid, ride as smooth as silk. Nice bonus features include wide aisles, sensible seating arrangement with lots of seats to choose from, and A/C. Also the chrome wheels are a nice touch. If the entire fleet were replaced with Xcelsiors I would not be disappointed. :)
My all time favourite would be the High-Floor D40′s. I remember riding them on route 340 as a kid ot my dentist appointments.
D40 LF- Detroit S50 all the way! (grew up with these in richmond.) otherwise, the (now scrapped) NFI D40 were pretty sweet with their detroit 2 stroke 6v92TA’s Also the E901A/E902s, as well as the modern trolleys
Didn’t get a chance to vote in the poll? It’s not too late! Let us know in the comments section.
