    OC Bus Spottings

    Artics are regularly scheduled on the 9, its my local route. They have no problems whatsoever negotiating any part of the route. OOS Deckers have very occasionally also used Crichton in the peaks to head Downtown if St Patrick is jammed.

    To the best of my knowledge a decker has never worked the 9, where did you spot it?

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    I really do not see why the 11and 12 cannot be reinstated to their previous routings, it’s as if OC Management are deliberately trying to piss off passengers and drive them off buses and into cars.
  7. More chance of Pinecrest being closed as there will be excess capacity after the withdrawals.

    There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Enviro 500’s in Service all over the world, not one of them is used on intensive long distance coaching work. i am genuinely surprised that on An enthusiasts group people do not know the difference between a bus and a coach.

    Because it is a BUS not a coach, the chassis is not built for long distance highway work.
  11. Chill out, there are far more important things in the world to worry about..... 🙄

    Who said it was over engineered to be driven into the ground in the city?

    Maybe onthe highway, but not for a considerable mileage, an Enviro 500 would soon struggle if it was regularly banging up and down the 401 between Toronto and Montreal for example. The level of comfort inside the vehicle is irrelevant as the Enviro is based on a bus chassis, as I have already pointed out, and is not built for sustained long distance highway running.

    One big difference, the superlo is based on an ADL BUS chassis, it’s lineage dates back to the Dennis Trident, it is built specifically for high intensity urban work not for sustained highway running. Do you not think that Megabus, owned by Stagecoach, based in Scotland, and who’s owner is a major shareholder in ADL, would purchase Van Hools if ADL provided a vehicle suitable for the type of services Megabus operates? Even in the UK Stagecoach buys Van Hools for long distance double deck service coach work rather than ADL products, although they have recently bought a small batch of Plaxton (part of ADL) bodied Volvo double deckers, although even they are bodied on Volvo coach chassis.
