    yep No sorry, I don't normally take pictures of buses as I don't care for them that much anymore. When I was a student riding them for hours daily I was interested, now that I work on a farm outside of town I mostly keep track of the remaining fishbowls I see, for the most part out of habit.

    Are you reading this thread at all? You're basically posting what I said days later with lesser detail The RBock busses were feratured on the news. Really not looking to them as they looks just like busses for the handicapped/airport shuttles. Why couldn't the city buy a real bus like PAZ 672? They are Chevy based, 21 seats each, #'d 1008 and up (after Novas) $160,000 a piece. They'll be running on Route 11.

    This is getting interesting now! Everyday I drive to work by Waterous. From October 21 until today there was just one Orion, including @ 8:30am when I went to work. Going back @ 5:00pm there is now two Orions again. As for the blue Novas, they come and go.

    As of 5:00pm one of the Orions is gone. I too am puzzled as to who bought them. With only one door and coach seating they compete directly with school buses on the used truck market. Thus for them to be brought over here all the way from the GTA, they must be going to some transit agency. This isn't unusual either - I currently work for a trucking firm, with the US economy completely in the hole it's ussually cheaper to buy trucks there and import rather then buy locally, even after customs and freight.

    I went there after work to get a better look, the two buses are definetely ex-GO Orion Vs, #200 & #201. The Classic was gone.

    Hi folks, While driving to work today I went by Waterous Power Systems (3210 Idylwyld Drive North). They had one blue freshly re-build Saskatoon Nova in the yard and two ex-GO Orion Mark IVs still in green paint! I'll try to get #s later. Glad I can post something usefull to the list, I still like buses just don't use them daily anymore going on 11 months now that I'm out of school.

    Folks, the Artics are currently running to/from the Saskatoon Ex. Good time to catch the ride before they get crowded by students in 3 weeks.

    September I think. Can't wait to ride them. That's the problem with every bus, except the DARTs! #20 did run on Taylor St before the system, was re-vamped with the DARTs ~2005 I believe. June 22 2010 821 on Route # 21

    It just occurred to me that Winnipeg canceled their Artic order due to poor winter performance. Has Saskatoon done any such testing on the Artics or are we going to learn the hard way in 5 months?
