    The ALRV charter is now sold out. If you wish to be added to the waiting list in the event of a cancellation, please let me know. There is still plenty of space left for the Saturday Eastern Ontario highway coach charter.

    CTHF 2018 Fan Trips

    EVENT CANCELLED. As a result of the limited response to date for this charter, CTHF has regrettably had to cancel this event. Payments made by registrants will be refunded as soon as possible. The CTHF is hopeful of having an event in conjunction with Halton County Radial Railway, one of our Heritage partners, at some future date.

    Hamilton Street Railway

    The HSR has not parked buses for a number of years now. They do rotate rows in the garage to make sure that every bus sees service 1 out of 2 weekdays when the service requirements are reduced in the summer.

    Airdrie Intercity Commuter Express & Local Service

    I was able to get the VIN of Airdrie 3718 today. It is 4RKYL82J1J9776464, build date Feb. 2018. It is interesting that it is a Plattsburgh built unit.

    BHA 2018 Convention - Dayton/Cincinnati

    The scheduled arrival time at the Covington hotel will be 5:15 PM. If needed, I would be available to give you a ride to the airport. By the way, the Dayton day now has over 60 people registered. In addition to the BBC trolley 110, we will also be getting a Skoda. We will ask people to switch vehicles at lunch time so that everybody has a chance to ride the BBC.

    TUM-17 is a 2004 NovaBus LFS that is ex-Autocar des Chutes 04-69, exx-Coach Canada 4976, new to Coach USA (NJ). It was acquired in 2016. One more change ... TUM-16 is a 1996 NovaBus LFS that is ex-Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC) 9632, acquired 2016. I do not know if it is still active or not.
  10. The 2018 convention of the Bus History Association will be from Wednesday, June 6 to Saturday, June 9, 2018. Please note that the Wednesday was added as a 4th day which had not been previously announced. The first part of the convention will be in Dayton, Ohio. We are hopeful of getting a tour of the trolley coach system on Wednesday using restored BBC trolley coach # 110 (barring any unforeseen mechanical issues). On Thursday, an intercity coach will be chartered and we will visit Columbus and Cincinnati. There will be a dropoff at the Covington KY hotel prior to returning to the hotel in Dayton on Thursday evening. Friday will be only an afternoon tour. In the morning, BHA members will travel on their own (or in carpools) to Covington KY. The Friday afternoon tour will be of TANK (Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky) and we will get to see their impressive historical collection. Saturday will be Cincinnati and area. We hope to visit Cincinnati Metro, Cincinnati Streetcar and also see the historical fleet of the Cincinnati Transit Historical Association. More details are in the attached PDF flyer. Please note that we will be cutting off registration at about 50-52 people so it is very important to register early if you are interested. 2018 BHA Convention Registration Package.pdf 2018 BHA Convention Registration Package.pdf 2018 BHA Convention Registration Package.pdf 2018 BHA Convention Registration Package.pdf 2018 BHA Convention Registration Package.pdf 2018 BHA Convention Registration Package.pdf

    2018 TTS Fan Trips

    The Toronto Transportation Society (TTS) will be chartering a New Flyer D40LF from Milton Transit on Saturday, May 12. We hope to charter one of the ex-Orange County buses (9700 series, built 1995) for a tour of Milton. Please see the attached PDF file for more details. Transportation Weekend will be held on Labour Day weekend. More details will be released at a later date but for now, the plan is to charter a Parkinson highway coach on Saturday, September 1 for a tour of southwest Ontario (Guelph, Kitchener, Woodstock, Stratford). Hopefully he ION light rail will be open by that time and we can include a ride on the LRT. On Sunday, September 2, we will be chartering a PCC from the Toronto Transit Commission.
