Trolley Bus Problems

First report by Vancouver Metblogs

They were shiney and new with little stop request buttons at waist heigh, oooh! We had finally caught up to 1995 transit technology where buses are concerned and now the plug er.. cable has been pulled on our new fleet of trolley buses.

TransLink has confirmed 39 of the brand new trolley buses have been pulled from service because of power steering problems…

..diesel buses have been brought in to help on those routes affected. The new trolley buses are under warranty and mechanics are working on the problem [News1130]

The problem should be resolved within the next few days, but until then, that 7:45am bus that you’re used to catching at 7:56 will now be arriving around 8:12.
