    Anyways, I cannot confirm as it was too far away, but I am 90% sure I saw 4622 in service as a 63 LeBreton this afternoon.
  3. What's the use in even answering questions anymore if people are going to just keep asking them over and over again anyways expecting a "better" response. 🙄

    They flip up on their own as soon as the occupant gets up, or at least the one I was in did, the idea being that users of mobility devices don't have to worry about flipping up any seats.
  5. Did you not like the answer you got the thousand other times you've asked the same question?

    Who cares? Considering the same 8620 series Novas you're complaining about are a mere two years old at most I fail to see what the big deal is.

    They'd be fine if they had padding in them like they're supposed to. No idea who screwed that up. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the flip-up seats either, you'll fly out of them when the bus takes off or makes turns if you're not careful. I'm also not sold on the ZF transmissions being a good idea either, from a passenger's perspective at least the shifting seems to be fairly jerky and uncertain. I suppose if they turn out to be reliable long-term then it's a moot point. The A/C working beyond just the priority seats at the front is nice though, as is the rear-facing NSAS display.

    Given that the knob says Vapor on it I'm sure that design is on the door manufacturer. Is it even (still?) possible for a transit agency to specify who makes the doors on a given bus?
