TransLink and Coast Mountain Bus Company are in the process of getting 2 double decker buses to try out on hwy #99 bus routes this fall. Routes include #351; #601 & #620, as well as rush hour routes #311; #352; #354; #602/3/4; #606 & #608.

If the trials work out, they could be ordering dozens to replace the aging highway Orion fleet of 85 buses.

Registration/licensing issues, delayed at least a couple of weeks.

Apparently booked out on select #351 trips today!

Should also be out on select weekend #620 trips as early as tomorrow.

The three month test was a success! Used primarily on #351; 311; 620; 301 & 555.

TransLink has ordered 32 double Decker buses, expected to arrive in summer 2019.

Should also get assigned to 601's too, once the lower hanging overhead wires are raised high enough for the buses to get thru.
