    These were just taken about 45 minutes ago in Sault Saint Marie. 7911 and either 1584 or 1784. They appear to have been delivered not too long ago today. Pictures courtesy of Felix Tse.

    The signs came programmed with Milton Transit files, that's all. No plans for any service expansion at this time. We are actually going to be dealing with cuts for the foreseeable future.

    We don’t have any service staff scheduled on Saturday’s to fuel the buses. Whatever goes out Saturday is held in Sunday for fuel. Seeing how Sunday’s is the lowest ridership day, they’re used mostly on that day.

    They all came in together but the other two are/were in the shop. New thinner passenger window borders, with the emergency exit now only part of the lower larger window piece. USB chargers for the passengers under each seat. electronic foot vent instead of manual. Front door toggle switch on the outside as well as non-smart bus interior ceiling panels where the advertisements go. Fleet Update: 2013 Chevrolet Arboc "Sprit of Mobility" #1323 has been retired from service after a blown motor.

    We received our five (5) 2019 Nova LFS Diesel buses yesterday afternoon. #1901-1905. Minor cosmetic changes to this batch of buses. 3 year contract with Nova. 5 for 2019, 6 for 2020 and another 6 for 2021. I believe pending budget the amount could change for the next two years but I don't know for sure.

    It operates the same as the metal handle. Its just a dial. This model has been available for a number of years now from vapor. I believe one of the TTC Nova LFS' had it for a brief period. This is meant for simpler and faster use with just one hand.

    Been a driver for over 10 years, including acting supervisor for a year. You’re entitled to your opinions.

    Well at the end of the day, you don’t make these decisions. Did you ever think that this could be a test? Did you ever think that maybe this was what they wanted? No you didn’t. As long as it functions properly, then what is the big deal?
  11. As long as they can get the front section of an articulated unit, anything is possible.
  12. Heard from some of the guys at Harvey shops that they are looking at repairing 9003, but needs a donor bus for parts.

    Two buses end of the year. Not sure where you heard that.

    1995 New Flyer D40LF #9701 has been retired from service. There will be two more Nova LFS buses joining the fleet by the end of the year to replace more 97xx buses. The last few should be gone by end of 2020. 4 ProMaster buses have been ordered and will be used for Home-To-Hub style service. They should be here around October of this year. The rest of the fleet carrying the old livery, minus the 97xx should be getting the updated scheme, but timing has not been confirmed.

    You're completely missing the point of my post, but OK.
