  1. Found this tender for the purchase of 4 cutaway buses over the next 4 years. https://brockville.bidsandtenders.ca/Module/Tenders/en/Tender/Detail/71bd1293-6955-4674-b0b2-0bd803083f65

    Electric buses are out on route 12 and 16. E has been added to the unit numbers as well as outside numbering (2108E and 2107E respectively).

    Yes, they are entering service today, immediately after the media event that was held this afternoon. Very smooth ride! 2107 was the number on one, didn't catch the other's number as they're currently only on the inside.

    Bit of an electric bus update: it's been wrapped in a green version of the express livery.

    I don't have any myself, a friend showed me it. Doesn't look too different from the XD40s, biggest difference are chrome rims and the rear end.

    First electric arrived last month, it's an express and hadn't recieved a number as of mid-April.

    I still have seen the occasional LF/LFR over the past 2 weeks, mostly on quieter routes like the 12/14/15. Due to the Covid service reduction the express coaches have been used significantly more than usual on local routes, so I suspect we'll see the LF/LFRs more often once service levels are restored on the 31st

    Tender has been awarded for the electric buses, and as per the contract report they will be New Flyer, final approval to purchase the first will be at next week's council meeting. The second unit will come after the ICIP funding is approved.

    0729 has been retired due to transmission issues. I can confirm that 0728 is still active as it is currently running route 15.
  10. The Trent Central Student Association posted a photo of a D60LFR that will be hitting the streets soon on Facebook, I assume its owned by Trent U and not the city.
  11. The Canada Department of National Defense has several flatnose wheel-forward buses for on-base transit systems, I've heard that the turning radius can be quite an issue especially during winter when snow banks are present.

    From the sounds of it 1047 has a new motor. Sounds like a Detroit Series 50 but I can't confirm.
  13. Was driving along Hwy 7 near Maberly yesterday afternoon and I noticed an ex-Peterborough Orion VI sitting at a residence. Appeared to be used for storage

    The Arbocs are being phased out and replaced by the new Novas, they will likely all be retired within the next month.
