    Thanks for the reply. Is there any reason whatsoever why they went with letters and numbers (especially big numbers)? When you have three buses in the fleet, 1, 2 and 3 would have been a lot easier.

    2019 BHA Convention - Ottawa/Gatineau - June 6 to 8

    The BHA convention is sold out at this point. Anybody registering now will be put on a waiting list in the event of a cancellation.

    I must have missed this. Is there a link to a staff report anywhere that states that TTC did cancel the order for the optional 60? I have not seen it anywhere.

    What is the fleet number of this bus?

    Hamilton Street Railway

    Well said ! Nothing like starting rumours based on hearsay. HSR will remain with the consortium. Whoever wins the tender will be what HSR goes with. It will have nothing to do with who likes what. Low bid wins, be it New Flyer, Nova or anybody else who decides to bid.

    Maui Public Transit to get some Enviro double deckers

    It is fact, not a rumour. See link below. It specifically refers to 2 double deckers. https://www.hawaiitribune-herald.com/2018/09/23/hawaii-news/double-decker-buses-to-hit-the-road/

    Maui Public Transit to get some Enviro double deckers

    I heard it was transferred to Hele-On which would make 2 double deckers that they have. I did not say it was the same bus as # 701.

    All of the Dupont replica trolleys have been retired. The Zhong Tong (# 69) is still active.

    Charlottetown Transit

    I received an updated fleet list from the Transit Manager at T3: Bus 73, VIN 1N9MLAC668C084091, ex-Calgary Transit 1606, El Dorado EZ Rider II Bus 74, VIN 1N9MLAC668C084088, ex-Calgary Transit 1603, El Dorado EZ Rider II The buses were acquired in 2018. I did not get a more specific date. The listing also contained a VIN for bus # 72: 2G9B30AA6GA098043 I suspect that this is an error on the fleet list. That VIN corresponds to Calgary Vicinity 1630. I suspect that in transitioning from the El Dorados to the Vicinities, the registration from 1630 and another El Dorado may have been accidentally switched and not noticed. I have an inquiry into T3 to check the VIN for bus # 72.

    2019 BHA Convention - Ottawa/Gatineau - June 6 to 8

    Thanks for doing that. The reason for the change was that MBS announced they are going to Washington in Spring 2021. Quite a few people attend both MBS and BHA so we did not want to have a convention just prior to an MBS one. The Wiki is a good resource. If you can update past conventions as follows, that would be great. 2005 - Harrisburg, PA; 2004 - Moncton NB/Halifax NS; 2003 - Ottawa, ON; 2002 - West Springfield, MA; 2001 - Winnipeg, MB; 2000 - Cleveland, OH; 1999 - Montreal, QC; 1998 - London, ON; 1997 - Seattle, WA; 1996 - Quebec City, QC; 1995 - Portland, ME; 1994 - Calgary, AB, 1993 - Chicago, IL; 1992 - Toronto, ON; 1990 - Ottawa, ON; 1989 - Boston, MA; 1988 - Halifax, NS, 1987 - Minneapolis, MN; 1986 - Vancouver, BC; 1985 - Detroit, MI/Windsor, ON.
