  1. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/York_Region_Transit
  2. Are those backwards facing seats over the wheel well?
  3. The original poster has proven in the past that he doesn’t have any.
  4. Thank you for posting something useful. Others in this thread should take note.
  5. Toronto does this too. Hasn’t stopped some jackasses.
  6. Yes, machines take notes and coins.
  7. Seems like Starline has two BYD buses. A red K9S (maybe that 2017 demo?) that was acquired in 2019 and a white C8MS numbered EB-1 that appears to have been acquired recently.
  8. Congratulations and enjoy retirement! Thanks for keeping us informed along the way.
  9. Gillig offers a 29’ electric Low Floor. I recall reading in one of their presentations that Grande West has an electric Vicinity in the works. GreenPower Bus also offers a 30-foot electric low floor and a smaller electric van shuttle.
  10. ADL partnered with Proterra for the Enviro500EV. It will use their battery technology and a new electrically driven axle from Allison. The pilot bus for Foothill Transit was spotted doing testing in the UK last year. Falkirk is in Scotland. Not Ireland. Also, that is a GreenPower bus.
  11. In Toronto: Dupont. Love the aesthetic. In Montreal: Namur. Love the public art.
  12. Nice. Did you guys mask off and paint the V drive logo? That’s a nice touch.
  13. With the start of 2020, and the delivery of car 204, the very last shipment for Toronto Transit Commission, I can’t help but reflect on Bombardier Transportation’s 2019 turnaround in the Americas. We faced late delivery and performance issues on some contracts, and it can now be said that we overcame challenges that many thought were unsurmountable. The proof of Bombardier Transportation’s turnaround rests with our results. Our customers deserve our best and the actions we have taken on TTC on delivery and performance in the field demonstrated this. I would like to thank all of our people who worked with absolute dedication, perseverance, passion and customer focus on our major turnaround – all while facing significant public scrutiny. And today, as our team in #ThunderBay waves goodbye to car 204, I’d like to recognize all the employees who made this production achievement happen - whether on the assembly line, in test, quality, procurement, methods, management and many others, including our fantastic Product Introduction team in Leslie Barnes - our face to the customer! This was a complete effort across Bombardier globally, with invaluable support coming from Thunder Bay, Kingston, Toronto, Saint-Bruno, Mexico, La Pocatière and even Bautzen and Vienna. Congratulations! David Van der Wee, COO #TogetherWeMove #TorontoTransit
