I heard that some of the DDs’ use on the 555 route will be based off of HTC in Queensborough, since they have enough room to fit in the buildings (the Poco depot doesn’t). I find it questionable because of the closer of the Queensborough bridge due to a transformer explosion under the bridge a couple months ago. The Alex Fraser bridge sometimes closes in the winter due to ice falling off the cables. The 555 will suffer reliability issues when these events happen.

$90 for a shower curtain.







A shower curtain.

Arguably the first two sites I went to that were drag-and-drop make your own design shower curtain sites (the magic of the internet) and quoted me $70 that was for a one-off shower curtain but you would expect an official Translink store selling shower curtains would of bought at least 100 and passed the "cheaper by the dozen" cost down. The fact either way that I can go elsewhere and get it $20 cheaper is a double smack in the face.

For the one tomorrow, what is the stop #? I can't tell if it's at the westbound or eastbound stops.

It's interesting then that the service change page isn't updated yet as of right now.

It’s usually the week before the service change when they show the schedules. It happened with the 106/119 split last year.

Thank god they put the route back to where it is. They probably realized rerouting it to Westminster Hwy is stupid, since it’s slower and susceptible to delays because of that rail crossing.

IIRC though, in 2013 around Christmas time, the service change notice was updated 2 weeks in advance.

Express691’s statement on FTN caught my eye; he may by wrong. Here’s what he said:

Little factoid:

Correct me if I am wrong - aside from the 4, 701, and 160, the FTN Standard during rush hour is now at least every 12 minutes, come September's service changes.

Yes, I am on here too, though I do not post as often (A factoid that needs correcting sounds kinda contradicting heh oops)

This comes from the release of the updated trip planner schedules, which are accessible here (Just change the date and route in the URL to access whatever schedule you want).

https://tripplanning.translink.ca/hi...diemDropDown=x

321 and 320 are going to 12 minute frequency in September.

The 555 and 43 caught my eye with their increases.
555 - Mid-day weekday goes to every 20 minutes
43 - Extends until just before 10pm, as well as a jump to every 10 minutes mid-day.

Changing the date for the 319, I'm looking at an extra bus between 5pm and end of service on Saturdays.
