Funding for the electric buses
By the Numbers
44.7% change in population of

grant from the Federal Transit
Administration's Low or No

$850,000 in matching funds from
the city and $900,000 from OUC.
" We have eight electric buses
running our downtown circulator
right now and we have six
more ordered, which will fill out
our downtown Lymmo service, "
said Harrison. " The community
has been very supportive and very
accepting [of the electric vehicles]
and, of great importance to me, so
have our operations and maintenance
teams. I think that this transition
has been very well received. "
In addition to new vehicles,
the complete
safety solution
for your fleet
LYNX is focused on providing
new and improved passenger
amenities through a long-term
program that includes shelter
installations and superstop construction.
These improvements
include new benches, wayfinding
signage, real-time information

Rosco's Safe-T-Scope®
360HD is a commercial grade, surround view,
aerial camera system. Developed to reduce collisions and increase
safety, the system utilizes four (4) 192° field-of-vision cameras to offer
drivers 360° three dimensional HD views around the school bus, covering
crucial blind zones where visibility is otherwise lost.

power of real-time fleet management to

is an advanced HD recorder that helps
reduce risk, improve safety and lower the
costs of transportation and management of
commercial fleets.
ly underway is the rebuilding of
the Rosemont Superstop, which
is among the system's 10 busiest
stops serving approximately 1,500
passengers each day. LYNX is partnering
with the city on the project,
which began in May, to improve
the superstop by increasing the
amount of onsite lighting, bringing
the number of bus shelters
with seating to 10 (up from four),
improving pedestrian crossings
and building larger bus bays that
can accommodate LYNX's larger
buses. Additionally, the superstop
incorporates the city's Crime Prevention
Through Environmental
Design principles, which ensures
a safe environment.
Harrison says construction is
going well on the long-awaited
project, which should take a total
of four to five months to complete.
" We have a number of other
significant projects out there, as
well, " said Harrison. " For the Pine
Hills Transit Center, we are in the
final process of getting the permits
and getting that out to bid
and expect to award that project
later this year. "
