Will this line be a true BRT line?[edit]

I saw that Mightyputty2002 reverted my edit. B-Line routes tend to be express routes with high frequencies, (usually) articulated buses, (usually) dedicated stops, and, when the 98 was operating and in terms of curbside bus lanes on the Broadway section of the 99, a dedicated ROW for part of the trip. I'm going to mobile edit but would like to discuss this matter before that part gets edited again. Cganuelas (talk) 06:24, 27 January 2017 (UTC) Cganuelas (talk) 06:24, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

  • There has been ZERO indication this route will be anything more than "standard" B-Line, which is essentially express with maybe some non-dedicated ROW thrown in. The only B-Line that was close to BRT was the 98 and really that was only the Richmond portion. You can bet if TransLink were planning BRT for this or any of the new B-Lines that there would have been clear announcements to that effect and likely a new, non-B-Line branding. Any attempt to refer to this as BRT without some seriously specific, reliable sourcing should definitely be reverted. —Joeyconnick (talk) 07:59, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
Just reverted a bunch of edits by mightyputty2002. Couldn't do it in mobile view but asked them who classified them as BRT. Hopefully they will either cite it or BTFO. Cganuelas (talk) 02:12, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
