    Saw Vicinity 1170 in Oakville today pulled over at a gas station on Bronte a road & QEW. Assuming it was heading to/from cityview.

    TTC Orion VII Retirements

    Is this for Toronto police or TTC special constable/enforcement division?

    Grande West Transportation

    Grande West Transportation has decided to sever ties with City View Bus Sales, after their stocks have plummeted sending investors/shareholders into a frenzy. They are looking at cost cutting measures to deal with this and apparently will be taking over direct sales. I am not sure if their American dealer is also affected at this time. Not good...

    Hamilton Street Railway

    They changed from plexiglass to pure glass as well. More durable.

    Warranty work and wiring issues causing delays for service launch. 5104 has non working AC which won’t be repaired. It’s only used as a last resort these days with all the hot days we have had.

    Today's Special Sightings

    I don’t think that’s ex-York, looks shorter than theirs and I believe they were kissing a bunch of parts when put up for sale...

    Saw 7030-18 the other day in service on 301. Looks like the new ones are finally on the road.

    Fleet Update: We received our 8 2018 Vicinity BA30 buses from Grande West. They are currently being prepared for service. All Orion VII buses with the exception of 4102 have been scrapped. 4101 is the lone survivor still in service daily and is scheduled to stick around until February 2019 unless a major problem occurs between now and then. In other news, the multi year tender for replacement 40ft buses closed and the results are very interesting. Both New Flyer and Nova Bus submitted bids and the winning manufacturer was Nova Bus coming in at $12,756,938. New Flyer bid $14,629,988.00. I don't have the exact number of buses that will be part of this 3 year contract yet but will provide more information soon. 2009 Arboc #9201 has been retired from service. 18xx Vicinity BA30s should enter service end of the week.

    4110. They're going to Scugog, ON near Port Perry to a scrapper. We received our 2018 Grande West Vicinity buses (3 came Friday - expecting the rest this week). A few minor changes interior/exterior wise but nothing too noticeable. These are equipped with EPA18 engines and ZF transmission.

    Are all of the 2002 Orion VIIs getting refurbished? Or just select units? Bernie?
