I think the comparison is over the previous year's fourth quarter, so Q4 2015 is being compared to Q4 2014. This is the way it is done for corporate sales and earnings. Due to seasonal variations (e.g., sports seasons, school and college academic calendars, seasonal tourism), comparing one quarter to its immediately preceding quarter just doesn't make sense.

I'm pretty sure that's right. Of course there are variations from the previous year's quarters in the number of weekends, weather, sporting events, etc. All things being equal, the extra day in a leap year, should add over 1% to the first quarter this year.

Will it go past SeaWorld and via La Jolla? Would be a lot of potential passengers in those places.

Glad to see they just did this and didn't wait until the last moment.

The highest fleet number I've seen on You Tube videos of SDMTS trams is 4073 and that may or may not in fact be the highest number at the moment. That would make the highest number 4118 unless others are scheduled for delivery between now and then when these are delivered. And then it will be time to look at ordering replacements for the 52 S100's. Given the S70's have more capacity, they may not be replaced on a one-for-one basis when the time comes.

Sad to hear that. Of course the projects will still be funded but maybe not as many as are presently planned. Too bad.

Thanks for the above photos.

Somehow I think those new Rapid bus stop signs are rather overpriced.
