  1. all of them have since been replaced with the standard "double tire" There were 5 of them, #8448 - 8452 when delivered Just wondering if anyone is catching up with the full wrap on the GO Superlo, I am wondering how many of them are being fully wrapped for the CAA now? Any other besides CAA wrap(except the Pride Bus). Thank you.
  2. I wonder if anyone have a list of the Chinese Lunar New year wrap bus and streetcars? So far 3437 and 4525 are on my list
  3. They have nothing to do with Kowloon Motor Bus in HK just simply because they are in RED, or even Metrobus in Mexico which also got a handful of E500 painted in all red as well
  4. and odd enough they are switching to on demand service BUT placing two new bigger 35ft buses in service............it's kinda contradicting to what they are intended to do, or they are expecting a huge demand of "on demand" service?!?!
  5. i have only seen one shot of that 164 in service with SSM, guess it's just ACTIVE IN THE GARAGE all the time!
  6. Any spotting of the demo today and how long more it will stay with TTC?
  7. after the last REAL BUS all retired back in 2003..............
  8. why is it on a flatbed? returned back to NovaBus?
  9. The new contractor "Regional Limousine has proposed to buy six (6) Dodge Grand Caravans, two (2) will be accessible (each with spots for 2 wheelchairs). They have proposed that four (4) vans will be in service and two (2) vehicles will be used as back-ups/spares" Can't be more excited to see these new "BUSES"..........omg!
  10. Does that mean the end of the current Eldorado's fleet?
  11. Not a surprise, only 5 or 6 of them were out during rush hour recently. More BYDs are in service recently than Proterras which I can see there must be some issues or warranty work going on with them. I am wondering if it has anything to do with the cracked window frames according to the TTC's in house preliminary evaluation results?
  12. Thank you again for your reply. Is that the Posey Tube and Webster Street Tube that connects downtown Oakland with Alameda? I checked the google map for their clearance that they should be more than good enough to fit the deckers at 13' 6". I agree it might be something to do with the tree issues along the route which is a common issues for the deckers to deal with...........
  13. Thank you, i am wondering why they are not ordering more double deckers, but MCI D45CRT LE instead? Do they have clearance issue operating the double deckers? Thank you.
  14. is that only double decker bus Enviro 500 still active in the fleet at the time of your visit? Thank you.
  15. just wondering if the 15 double deckers for AC Transit are just used on the Transbay routes during the rush hour only? Any spotting on them being used on the local routes? Thank you.
  16. very odd that they are selling them off that quick and from the photos on Ebay they look very decent...............anyone knows what's the reason they are selling them off? On the other hand, i am wondering if all the CIT buses, including those used New Flyer D40LF from Kingston, Ontario and D40LFR from Red Deer, Alberta, have been decalled into the EXO scheme or not? Thank you.
  17. I am wondering if any 02's D40LF still active in service? WIKI said some of them still active but seems they are never on the road
  18. Does it look exactly the same aa other diesel powered GO SuperLo E500?
  19. has that 157 ever been in service? Or never at all? Is it still in Thunder Bay scheme or repainted to SSM color already? Thank you
  20. This is clearly just an EXCUSE for them not to bid rather than an ACTUAL reason of not to bid, I am sure they can deliver on time to meet the delivery requirement if they want, but maybe it's not as profitable for them to speed up their production, by hiring more people and acquiring more resources JUST to fulfill the contract for TTC.............you know business is business at the end of the day and not to mention NFI always have a full book of business. Guess if you wish to place an order of 500 D60 high floor buses from NFI, are they going to do it for you? They will do WHATEVER to fulfill your request! I am surprised enough to see NovaBus being ABLE to deliver ALL 342 LFS buses to TTC in less than 9 months in 2017, at the end of the day their profit margin on this contract has to be LESS comparing to having them delivered in 2 years instead.............which NovaBus might think this contract favorable(profitable for sure) but not so much with other supplier, such as New Flyer, for example..................
