I'm not sure if we've seen one before but there's an electric bus with the BC Transit design...
Well I've seen it...about 5 minutes ago as it drove past me on Pandora.

I really wish they'd separate the 75 from the 30/31 before July. Today I was on a 30/75 and all seats were already filled by Pandora (mostly with pretty obvious tourists that probably got on right at the start of the route) with people just trying to get to Carey/Vanalman left cramped and it only gets worse come June (especially on sunny days).

Does transit like the cash fares from the 75? It seems the only good reason to serve Butchart. Few pass holders, lots of cash.
I assume it gets pretty good ridership to Butchart. 75s seem pretty busy from early May to mid/late September.

As I recall from my past history with the #75 route, it is never busier than during the May-September period mostly because it is the cheapest way for tourists to get to the Butchart Gardens. I imagine it must make $$$ for BC transit.

Be thankful we have BC Transit and not Rome's bus service:
ATAC, the company for bus and rail transport in the city of Rome, has a national reputation for passengers who fail to buy tickets — and jump off as soon as ticket collectors, who are rarely spotted, come on board. Drivers, many of whom have little problem multitasking on their cellphones, are not asked to check tickets. The company’s employee absence rate is well beyond the national average.

I guess the ministry owns it and nobody really has bothered much with the hospital worker misuse.

It seems the Nanaimo tracker is up. I tried going to the URL listed (https://nextride.nan...om/Home/Desktop) and it seems pretty neat at least so far. Tells you the scheduled time and about how far behind it currently is as well as other buses that stop there and where they are. Could be useful if you're somewhere like Fort and trying to decide if you should get on the 11 here now or wait for the 15 that was supposed to be here a minute ago and is no where in sight. For some reason some buses show if it's low/medium(and I assume high) density while others don't which I guess could be nice for "do I want to rush out to have to stand all the way to Sooke or will the next be a doubledecker and have more room".

After playing around some more it seems I was wrong in relation to the time thing. First time is when the next bus should arrive based on where it currently is and traffic, where it should be, etc. The second is the bus after that. It also seems to give you notifications when routes are on detour even actually showing the detour route which will be very handy.

It seems like they have quietly gone back to the previous model. I can’t find anything online anywhere and I could have sworn that I read about it in the Tiny Colonialist.
