We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

Two tidbits you might be interested in:

  • Rebecca at Miss604.com has a post up showing historical Vancouver transit photos and their modern counterparts.
  • We hit a record number of Next Bus texts on September 8 — 35,181 texts! It’s good to see people are using our info services. Here’s a press release with more info and stats.

    Thanks for the link.

    Thanks also for the historical “flashbacks” you do in each month’s print issue…keep it up!

    And looking forward to those PDF archives….

    This is not NextBus (www.nextbus.com) this is a fake that simply tells you what the piece of paper on the pole says. Sounds like trademark infringement to me…

    It’s our 33333 SMS text service! You are right about there being another service with a similar name though: we spell ours “Next Bus” to differentiate ourselves from the nextbus.com service. I missed the space in a couple of spots, but have changed it to reflect.
