  1. Double decker bus order

    8144 was on the 6 today.
  2. Guess what is different about these two bus photos!

    The photos had no credits on them earlier. when you post photographs from other sites it is common courtesy to ASK the photographer for permission to post, a simple email should suffice.
  3. Ottawa Double Decker Sightseeing Buses

    The Lodekka is still going strong in its 50th year which is great to see, unfortunately it has received a garish wrap in the last few weeks as it was still red when I saw it about a month ago. Spotted this afternoon at the Aviation Museum.
  4. OC Bus Spottings

    You might have at least got the fleetnumber right
  5. Production of the North American version of the Enviro200 will be taken in house by Alexander Dennis at its plant in Napannee later this Year. The agreement for New Flyer to produce it has been mutually ended.
  6. OC and STO service disruptions

    It wasn't just the closure that they were complaining about, it was the badly planned services in general on Canada Day, many people couldn't actually get Downtown as all the buses were starting at outer termini and were soon full, there were no buses starting along the routes closer to Downtown. people are also just generally frustrated with OC Transpo's poor level of regular service these days with constant delays and cancellations on many routes on a daily basis. Manconis general "it's never our fault" attitude in any interview also irks many, IMO he is a very poor manager of Transit in this city.
  7. The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    I will be very surprised if LRT is up and running this time next year, don't forget once the system is completed there needs to be significant testing of the system, often to a full schedule of trains running empty for a period of time. i think you are looking at late 2018 at the very earliest, the fact that no one will commit to even an approximate timescale now speaks volumes.
  8. OC and STO service disruptions

    Buses were running Eastbound, I caught a 12 on MacKenzie King just after 2, it was westbound buses that were at a standstill
  9. OC and STO service disruptions

    According to Twitter service Downtown has been pretty shambolic today with long delays, it doesn't bode well for the rest of the week and Canada Day in particular. Fortunately I live close enough to Downtown that we are just likely to walk on Saturday.
  10. GOA transit news, info etc

    I photographed it on George St this morning, about a minute after I photographed the "6"!!
  11. OC Bus Spottings

    This morning on Rideau!
  12. Was the Classic a good bus?

    Are you trying to start a record for the amount of threads you can start on one day on basically the same subject?
  13. GOA transit news, info etc

    OC have already stated Double Deckers won't be used on either all day services or services serving Downtown, there will have to be further investiment in 40" buses as the Invernos are approaching retirement age, even those which are being refurbished.
  14. OC Bus Spottings

    It's had that for at least 2 years, there's another one too but I can't remember the number.
  15. Double decker bus order

    8154 has left ADL in Falkirk and is on its way to Canada.
