  1. Only the 2 Brills and 116 are left in the tent garage.
  2. Just a update on some recent retirements. 466 is retired inside the dead line. 468, 469, 480, & 101 are retired in the tent,
  3. 469 is now officially retired. The farebox is gone along with a few other interior parts. 466 is still in service, it was on the 17 today.
  4. The rest of the new units are parked at Highbury, 555 is the newest unit.
  5. The guy in the story must be smoking something good, if he thinks those buses are going to last that long.
  6. I wouldn't be surprised if its done. It broke down on the charter and we had to get a change off.
  7. 512 is back in service. I got to drive it yesterday and they did a great at repairing the bus.
  8. 1169 was parked beside the garage under a tarp.
  9. Yes its a ex Mississauga Transit D40LF.
  10. Stratford has acquired another second hand bus. They acquired a used New Flyer D40LF numbered 0337. The lady driver wasn't impressed with me taking photos of her bus, she called dispatch .
  11. London Transit was part of the Consortium until Nova get awarded the contract. London Transit is glued to New Flyer !. As soon they got word it was Nova that won, they bailed as fast as possible.
  12. Yes you are correct all the retired buses have the old blue seats. 546 is still not in service.
  13. They didn't even post any real photos of the retired buses. They took some photos of 474 and posted that instead.
  14. I have heard nothing. 465 is now retired.
  15. All the new buses have arrived and are numbered 528 to 546. Recent retired buses are 479, 482, 483, 103, 107, & 110.
  16. Yes the new buses are being sent to Wonderland Garage. 542 is the highest bus delivered so far.
  17. I think they used someone from the office to record the new stops. The original stops were professionally done. The new announcements are done in house on the cheap side. 21 to 23 are around, but they spend most of there time at the garage. 22 made it out today on the 33. I believe there should be another 8 buses arriving sometime in the next few months according the LT minutes.
  18. I think 145 has been active in the garage for a while before being retired. I never saw in service in all in my trips to Sault Ste Marie.
  19. No plans to retire 21-23 as of yet. They seem to be used almost everyday lately.
  20. 465 has new seats while 466 does not. The way they are doing the seat replacements doesn't make a lot of sense. According to the latest LT agenda, 4 new buses are due to arrive in late August. The rest of buses should arrive later in the fall. Yes the traffic is a mess around downtown. With Richmond down to one lane & bus stops closed, its nuts. Takes people forever to figure out the stops are closed.
  21. Looks like Sault Ste Marie is getting 8 used buses according to this article .
  22. They changed the software and all the third party apps no longer work. Also they removed the bus fleet numbers from web watch.
  23. The Holiday bus this year is 514 and it should be on the road after the parade.
  24. I've noticed that within the past week or two, there are less and less artics out. This is the case on routes 29 and 33 which have been showing only one on each on LTWatch. Is there something wrong here? They could be down for repairs. It seems one of the wonderland artics is ending up on route 17.
  25. Route 27 Runs 1, 2, 3 are supposed to have articulated buses assigned out of Highbury. Route 102 Run 2 & 3 are supposed to have articulated buses assigned out of Highbury. Route 106 Run 9 & 10 are supposed to have articulated buses assigned out of Highbury. Route 29 Runs 1, 2, 3 are supposed to have articulated buses assigned out of Wonderland. Route 33 Run 1 and 2 are supposed to have articulated buses assigned out of Wonderland. Route 91 Run 13 and 14 are supposed to have articulated buses assigned out of Wonderland. Also 13 Run 1 out of Wonderland seems to get a articulated bus. Also 6 Run 3 out of Wonderland seems to get a articulated bus.
