    TTC Service Changes

    I don't get what are the benefits of changing all the numbers! Doing so means that it will take a while for frequent riders to get used to, and also changing all the signage to the new numbers would be very costly. The current express bus system is already easy to understand and there's no need for change. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Maybe it's the media's fault for misreporting the price. They shouldn't be that expensive per unit. That $1.4m price is the price for the articulated hybrid which the STO and RTC has, so maybe the STM should look into that as their current diesel artics are in a rather poor state without an expensive refurbishment.

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Just hope that the new livery would not have the windows covered up like the demo double deckers!

    Would the Nova hybrids and the future double deckers also have this new livery?

    That bus with the framed windows is for the TTC. Both have sliding windows for the driver.

    For instance, the YRT, MiWay, and RTC Quebec has their liveries done at a 3rd party contractor at Montmagny, an hour southeast of Quebec City.

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Most likely they'll be wrapped in a similar manner to the TTC, Viva, and RTC Quebec buses. Remember they were also all white before their livery were applied. For instance, when the RTC buses were rolled out, they look like this: When finished, they look like this: Note that the fleet number has already been applied before the livery was given, and that's the only way I knew which operator it belonged to. I'll try to see if any units got their livery done, but I only visit there around once a month, and the surroundings near the factory makes it difficult for spotting (no sidewalk) and that these closeup photos are only possible if the factory is closed during a holiday and that I cannot come that close if they're at work. It's possible they could be doing test runs outside the factory from which I can get a better view, but you never know when it comes and it's hit or miss. But if this doesn't work, I'm planning a trip to Vancouver this December and hope those units will be delivered by then.

    Some of the windows were still covered in plastic inside, so that's why I couldn't see it. Also in Montreal there's an extreme heat wave of up to 46 degrees so I couldn't stay long outside, and I had only a few seconds to take all these photos.

    Quite possibly but I'm not quite sure. I'm absolutely not an expert on destination signs so I can't really tell them apart when they're off.

    MTA NYCT Subway/Bus discussion

    New York MTA Nova Bus LFS Artic at the Nova Bus factory at Saint-Eustache, Quebec, taken today. Given that these should be built in Plattsburgh, not really sure what it is doing up here without logos or the fleet number.

    Heads up Translink! The first dozen Nova Bus LFS HEV has been rolled out at the factory in Saint-Eustache, Quebec. They all feature frameless windows, EPA 2017 engine, and updated battery pack and roofline. They were just rolled out this week and in the next few days (according to the paper inside the windshield) the livery will be applied before the week-long drive to Vancouver (assuming a few stops along the way). I've seen a few in the front parking lot while there were many more behind the factory where it was visible on the highway.

    Adieu MR-63

    They did open the door on element 016 today. Though there were too many people crowding the door when I went in, rather similarly to the Azur's inaugural.
