  1. exo Le Richelain 811712 is a 2012 Prevost H3-45.
  2. The TTS will not be operating to SW Ontario charter trip on Saturday, October 26. It will be rescheduled for spring 2020.
  3. The TTS "Farewell to the CLRV" charter is now sold out. We will be having two cars for a five hour charter starting at 10:30 AM. If you are still interested, we can add you to the waiting list in the event of a cancellation.
  4. As mentioned above, they are not ARBOC bodies but are Blue Bird Micro Bird. Were you able to get a photo of bus # 103? I saw 101 and 102 when I was there a month ago but was unable to determine if the third bus was 100 (like it was previously) or 103.
  5. After saying that I was having trouble obtaining a fleet listing, sure enough, my e-mail was replied to today by the Manager of Maintenance who provided me with an up to date list. Bus 41252 is not on the active list and has been retired. Bus 42458 along with the artic Novas are still shown as active. I always like to get official confirmation from the company because a bus is not retired until it has been decommissioned or de-plated. Just because a bus has not been seen in service for 5-6 months, you can never assume it has been retired, It could just be waiting on body repairs, mechanical repairs, etc.
  6. Bumping an old topic ... I received a fleet update from Whitehorse Transit today. The CPTDB wiki needs updating. Buses 46, 47 are 2017 NovaBus LFS units with 38 seats. Buses 38, 40 (2010 NovaBus LFS) have been retired. It is interesting that 3rd gen Novas have been retired but there have been a few properties that have had problems with EPA 2010 engines.
  7. I am having a tough time getting an up to date fleet listing from Saint John Transit. They seem to be really hesitant to give out the information. With the delivery of the 12 Novas last year, were there any other buses retired other than the remaining Classics and the Orion VI? Do any of the local transit fans have any update as to whether or not some of the early Orion VII buses have been retired? Thanks in advance for any information.
  8. I finally heard back from my fleet contact in Temiskaming Shores. The 35' Midis are numbered 51017 and 50682.
  9. I find that Black's has the best print quality when it comes to printing. They closed their stores but you can still print online at blacks.ca . The delivery time is very good and a lot of time they have specials where you do not have to pay for delivery if a certain quantity is printed.
  10. A fleet list that I received (no VINs unfortunately) show 1950 and 1951 for the Regional fleet as well. Are these in service yet?
  11. The VIN for 72 is 1N9MLAC66AC084047 which makes it ex-Calgary 1622.
  12. When the new paint scheme was introduced on the artics back in early 2007, it was part of the express route rebranding. It was decided not to put any advertising on them at the time. This policy has remained in place since that time even though the fleet expanded and artics are used on all routes, not just express. The advertising company has asked for many years to wrap an artic or put ads on it. HSR has declined but finally recently gave in. I just hope that they do not do all the buses as I still like seeing a few ad free vehicles.
  13. The TTS website has been updated with the flyer for the event. http://www.torontotransportationsociety.org/documents/Farewell to the CLRV Flyer - 22SEP19.pdf
  14. I have been told that the only confirmed retirements at this point are 0611-0614 and 0603 for a total of 5 buses. With 17 new bus deliveries, all of which were replacement, 12 other buses have been placed in storage and are not officially retired at this point. While the equipment has been taken off the buses for installation in the new buses, the possibility remains that new equipment could be installed in the buses, if needed. HSR is concerned about the spare ratio for the fall, as there will be up to 10 peak buses added with the service expansion that will be occurring. The buses in storage, currently at the 330 Wentworth Street garage, will not be used for parts at this point, just in case any need to be brought back. The storage buses are 0520, 0601, 0602, 0701-0709.
  15. Exo Terrebonne-Mascouche # 217-203, a NovaBus LFS, is seen at Terminus Terrebonne. Exo is the new branding name for the old CIT operators in the suburban Montreal area. Some buses are getting renumbered when the exo branding is applied. This service is operated by Keolis Canada.
  16. Do you mean Air Link? They are out of Mississauga and have at least one ex-GO bus.
  17. That is good to hear. We hope to get the flyer for the event out this weekend.
  18. SSM Transit # 161 (ex-TTC 7907) is in service still in TTC colors with SSM logos applied.
  19. The 11 XN60 buses and the 6 additional CNG buses were all replacement buses. The HSR fleet will remain at 267 (265 plus 2 replica trolleys). The expansion buses were buses 1701-1719 which were received last year. HSR has had an above average spare ratio the past year or so and it will be interesting to see if all of the September expansion will be able to be handled by the current fleet. The Vicinities now have numbers and they are 1845-1850. As for the 0700s, I have not been able to confirm their retirements at this time. They have been moved off property to 330 Wentworth Street while repaving and regrading work is done on the north side of the garage. A new "bus port" is being constructed on that side of the garage to at least provide some shelter to buses stored outside during the winter time.
  20. Interesting, it would appear they have 3. They are still leased as far as I know. Apparently the J3500 buses have not shown up yet. Originally scheduled for April delivery, it is not known when they will arrive. I suspect that the leased Temsas will go back once the J3500 buses arrive. Also, in talking to a driver, the 1900 series D4505 buses (1901-1906) have been sent back to the factory for a warranty issue. It is not known when they will return. MCI has provided some MCI J4500 demos (painted all white with only ON legals on the luggage compartments) to be used while the units are away. At least two all white, unnumbered J4500 buses have been observed in service for Ontario Northland.
  21. So you are suggesting we waste more taxpayers money by getting more expensive buses ...🙄
  22. It is a 102C3. The A3 buses did not have smooth fully painted signs. The B3 buses had a full destination sign in the upper front window. The C3 were fully smooth sided without the full destination sign.
  23. brio is the name of the BRT route for Sun Metro in El Paso, TX. It runs between the downtown terminal and West Mesa via Mesa Street. Ten XN60 buses are used on the service. Bus # 14606 is seen on El Paso Street at West 3rd Avenue.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
