  1. London was part of the Metrolinx TPI program a few years/contracts back and when Nova Bus was selected as the supplier, the city opted out. I can only guess that its to due with fleet standardization. Why would they go and order a completely different model bus/manufacturer? It doesn't matter who is the fleet manager. Its common sense, financially. I am not sure if they've ever been involved with CUTRIC, but guessing no. Perhaps someone with more knowledge about London Transit can add their points/view.
  2. These buses have adjustable pedals, I wonder if he was just sitting wrong and had it in an awkward position.
  3. You and your information are very unreliable. No one including myself should believe anything you say on this board going forward.
  4. 1101/1104 are in Mississauga at Cityview getting an engine rebuild. Once they return, 1106 and another will be next. 1106 has a bad engine and has been removed from service until its rebuilt. 1905 is waiting on a new front destination sign.
  5. I'm hearing they're coming with the redesigned driver window as well.
  6. 2004 New Flyer D40LF #5106 (ex-London Transit #462) purchased second hand in 2011 has now been retired. Care-A-Van 1122 as also been retired. The new Arboc buses have started to enter service. 1822 has been out for the past few days. 2018 Grande West Vicinity #1806 was involved in a serious collision yesterday morning involving a dump truck that ran a stop sign and t-boned the bus. Extensive damage to both vehicle but no serious injuries. It will be off the road for some time.
  7. No, this was a separate project done in partnership with MTB in Milton. The city does not do any major overhaul of their transit vehicles.
  8. Umm...the size of tail lights are still an option. As is the rear window, Fire Suppression System, Door width, updated driver window, headlights and Doors.
  9. We still have buses older than the 2006s in service. They'll go first. D40LF 5105 has been taken off the road. 4101, 5106, 5103 and 5104 are still on the road daily. Still waiting on the rest of the 2019 LFS' to enter service.
  10. I saw it on the west side when I returned for the day... guess it didn’t go out for long. I’ll check in the morning. 1902 was changed off for rear door malfunction. There is a photo cut out on their brochure online in the meantime. I’ll try and get one tomorrow morning.
  11. 2019 Nova LFS 1902 and 1904 are in service now. Still waiting on the other 3 units. There are some warranty work that needs to be dealt with. We also received new 2019 Arboc "Spirit of Freedom" buses, slightly redesigned looking a little more boxier than before. They will be numbered 1821-1822. They were last years order. Two more I believe coming by the fall. An adjustment schedule as well for the 6 Nova LFS buses due for next year, will actually be arriving this fall as well. Fleet numbers will continue as 1906-1911. The other set of buses (6) will arrive for April 2020, concluding the 3 year contract with Nova at that point.
  12. I saw 4226 at Exhibition Loop around 1:15pm today.

  14. 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.
