  1. I noticed everywhere is getting service and Whitby is on the back burner as always

    Orangeville Transit

    It is official they are switching to a hybrid system. Unknown when that transition will happen. They are acquiring two more 30-foot buses and two mini buses. There will be more update soon on when this will happen. Hopefully we see a livery for these buses finally. https://citizen.on.ca/orangeville-moving-to-hybrid-model-for-transit/
  3. There has been plans to restore it since it retired. But all it's really been doing, it's just hopping around the yard.
  4. When I saw 2444 a few years ago it was stripped of almost everything. 2345 was also stripped.
  5. 2345 and 2444 were parts buses only. It is unclear what is going on with 8058 which was currently undergoing restoration.
  6. I wonder if they acquired new buses. 1951, 1954, 1955, 1958, & 1962 are retired and listed for sale. https://www.govdeals.ca/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1159&acctid=6719 https://www.govdeals.ca/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1158&acctid=6719 https://www.govdeals.ca/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1151&acctid=6719 https://www.govdeals.ca/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1150&acctid=6719 https://www.govdeals.ca/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1149&acctid=6719
  7. Most transit systems have that exemption.
  8. I would have thought the conventional Van Hools would go before the 03 Flyer's.
  9. Wont work. It will cause nothing but severely high taxes for everyone and cause municipalities to cut service to save money. It is just a Liberal tactic to add more taxes. Trudeau is also the reason to not vote for slime covered Liberals.
  10. 775 in the new livery is retired. It is in the new livery.

    Owen Sound Transit

    Seems they might scrap the hourly Summer service. Unsure if they are still going to use wrapped school buses. https://www.bayshorebroadcasting.ca/2022/04/18/owen-sound-operations-committee-recommends-scrapping-summer-hourly-transit-pilot/

    Barrie Transit

    According to wiki. All of the remaining D40LF's were retired.
  13. Have they been driving it around the region?
  14. Very interesting. Curious if they will be acquiring cutaways for the service or will be using their 45ft buses. This is a smart move for GO instead of throwing a bus out there on a schedule.

    Milton Transit

    Seems 1702 has been of the road for quite some time. Anyone know if it was involved in an accident or just major mechanical? I have not been in the area for quite some time.
  16. Too heavy? They normally have two F49's leading and 6 cars. They're has been a few times a single MP40 has been used on that run.
  17. They were retired last year. Cornwall is the last one how to operate the VI in Canada unless they are retired.
  18. After a while hiatus. I have reorganized 90% of the photo galleries. Link attached at the bottom. Lots of new photos added. https://public.fotki.com/GAPhotography/ga-transit-photos/transit-in-ontario/public-transit/
  19. Are these the ones at ONR? Have they become cab cars or full passenger coaches.
  20. Not paint they are decals. It seems the buses are being wrapped up for advertising.
  21. Buses will be replaced. Just wait and see.
  22. Yes I do have a photo. Apparently these buses are still too large as Route 1 apparently does not have the ridership for a large bus.

    Wasaga Beach Transit

    The new Elkhart bus is that the Landmark bus lines yard. I could not see the fleet number from the street as it was parked at the very back. Clearview's is in service plain white with logos and no fleet number.
  24. Was in Chatham yesterday with a few friends. ADL #016 was in service for the first time. It is still unknown where 018 (former C150) was acquired from. Bus 019 was believed to be one of the St. Thomas units. I checked the VIN and it was former C142 but want to reconfirmed it. It had the destination signs retrofitted which were from bus C110. There are 6 old CK branded buses on peoperty awaiting scrap. When all buses are in service, there are around 4 spare conventional and 1 spare mobility. I would assume that two new buses would be ordered at some point to replace 018 & 019.
