    One more reason I’m glad I don’t live in the burbs:

    I use a couple iPhone apps for schedules/navigation. When does the data feed get updated? (I’m assuming there’s an API or something)

    Hi Kelvin,

    I hope this answers you question:

    Handi Mobility, the folks who run the iPhone app, get our data from 3 sources:

    GTFS
    Scraping our site
    Daily schedule file from CMBC (ODS) [not publicly accessible]

    The daily schedule file and possibly the other two are updated daily.

    I’ve just spotted yesterday the new Orion NG VII leaving Metrotown on route 130, has TransLink already bought this bus, or is it still being tested?

    Zach: The Orion bus is a loaner from the company that we’re testing out in West Vancouver. We haven’t bought any yet. Stay tuned for the next links and tidbits post for images and video of the bus! Or just check David Lam’s photos now! – http://www.trans-continental.ca/vancouver/demonstrators/2010OrionVII/#21
