  1. Is there any GO driver here who remembers how to turn on the Jake Brake on 2280? Its one of the 2005 buses with the blue and yellow interior. Thanks
  2. I am buying this first bus for personal use now, in my own name. I am using it for PR events while I build my brand. Then once I have more resources, I will buy 3 to 4 more units for commercial operation, and sign over the bus I am buying now over to the company. I wont be using it commercially, for now... but I cant rip out the seats because I still need it to be usable later.
  3. No, a different bus, but from the same batch. But yeah, insurance has been a terrible process. I have no idea how other people buy these things...
  4. I know who bought the buses, and I am now the one buying them off him. They buses were all in varying condition, I am taking the good ones and running them for my company. Anyone know how to insure a 45ft MCI for personal use? I am buying one next week but dont want to pay for a commercial policy before I put the bus into revenue service.
  5. 2400 MCIs are running here in Hamilton, and I was told a lot of them are being phased back into rotation now, hence why I havent been able to buy any yet. None of hit any auctions this year. Anyone know how to insure a 45ft MCI for personal use? I am buying one next week but dont want to pay for a commercial policy before I put the bus into revenue service.

  7. Hey, I am buying an MCI next week but before I put it into revenue service, I need insurance just to move the thing. Anyone how or where one can insure a 45ft bus as a personal vehicle? Or RV? Or what? $30000 is a little steep when I am not using it commercially.
  8. No 2400s have hit the market yet shockingly. Anyone know where they are being stored?
  9. Anyone know if GO is retiring any buses in 2022??? I really need to pick up 5 buses this summer. If not GO, anyone know where I can get some used GO spec buses?
  10. Yeah, it would be easy. Trains could and should thorough run at W. Harbour, but like I said... higher powers... People higher up simply don't want to put in the work. It's my suspicion that CN doesn't want to encourage more GO service in the area, hence the intentional incomplete state of W. Harbour and track works.
  11. It's the same politics that prevent all-day service to GO Centre (the better station). Short term disruption to corridor owners isn't worth the long term efficiency of a transit system.
  12. Oh for sure Novas are a close second place... they're not bad... just... they're not New Flyers. And in Hamilton in particular they fair poorly, but again that's Hamilton's fault for having unreasonably bad roads. If Novas had better suspension and more rigid tolerances, they would probably do better here too. Oakville's newest Novas were really nice to drive, and okay to ride... but they're also diesel.
  13. Effectively, Metrolinx sucks at negotiating... especially with CP, but still with CN... CN pretty much thought it would be too inconvenient to allow the track work and schedule modifications required to put trains through on the main line... hence, an incomplete station. Put simply, the transit side of the negotiation lacked the jewls to push for a complete project.
