    OC Bus Spottings

    6402 on 56 Tunney's Pasture at 15:07 stopping at Carling and Cambridge.
  2. Four classics have been retired recently. These Classics include 9106, 9404, 9410, and 9413. Their driver equipment and fareboxes were gone.

    4456 on 14 Carlington at 15:47 at Caldwell and Medford. Forgot to add: 8003 (videotron wrap) on 86 Emvale passing by Holland and Carling at 15:17.

    5122 has the new LG G7 wrap, saw it passing by Carling on 14 St-Laurent at 15:18.

    4513 on 14 Carlington at 15:22 at Carling and Holland, rode it home.
  6. Dumb moment. I could have sworn I saw an old thread that said this bus still continued to have the wrap in 2003, and possibly 2004 judging from my pic. My bad. I also found a old photo of 9845 in the wrap in 2001, so it was most likely that year when both buses got wrapped. Copyright: Peter McLaughlin. EDIT: upon further inspection, these two wraps are slightly different. I'm still guessing 2001-2002. It can't be 2003 because it would have been January when the Ikaruses retired, and there's no snow whatsoever.

    Saw the hybrid banana bus (5101 with a whole Videotron wrap around it) on 80 Tunney's Pasture at 08:04 at Carling and Summerville. Other spottings: 6388 on 56 Hurdman just pulling up to Carling/ Holland at 15:20. 6375 was on 85 Lees passing through the Royal stop on Carling, around same time as previous spotting. 4526 on 14 Carlington at Summerville/Prince at 15:35.

    Invero Light Rebuild Project

    I've noticed that on 4397 (rebuilt), there is now a glossy yellow stanchion next to the driver instead of the regular matte black one. I also saw this on another 45xx Invero. 4526, which I rode today and has not been refurbed, just has the older black stanchion instead. Has OC Transpo been replacing the black stanchions with the yellow ones on the refurbed units?

    If You Could Restore 1 Bus, What Would It Be?

    If I could restore one bus, I would take 9318 (one of our OC Transpo NovaBus Classic models) out of the scrapyard in Quebec and fix it up.

    8022 was on 86 Emvale at 15:13 today at Holland at Carling. 5140 seemed to have something off about it. When I heard the bus go by on Carlington, there was a pretty high pitched whine coming fro. the back. Don't know what that was about. 4383 was on the 14 Carlington route at 15:51 taking me back home near Caldwell. I also noticed several hybrids with new LG G7 phone partial wraps on the driver's side. Unfortunately could not get the numbers.

    4513 was on the 101 St-Laurent route today. The bus started having issues with the front and rear doors. Operator had to repeatedly open and close both doors. She also tried using the door master switch, didn't work. The doors started functioning again until a few stops down when the same problem occured. A few minutes later, they started functioning properly again.

    GOA transit news, info etc

    Definitely a D60LF. The way you can tell is by the rounded windows on the rear doors. The video also shows a shot of the front from far away which confirms it. Doesn't seem to be a good month for artics so far. Another D60LFR was also smoking and caught fire while on route 12 yesterday as per a reddit post. Couldn't get the fleet number. Note: Video is not mine, neither is the post. Credit goes to Nicktastick for capturing this.

    5173 still has a red priority seating decal on both sides of the bus. Rode it this morning on the 80 Tunney's Pasture at 08:06 to the Royal stop. Later today, I saw it again doing the same route at 15:26 around Carling and Holland. 6352 was on 85 Lees and was traveling down Carling Avenue to Holland at 15:30.

    Misc. OC Transpo & STO Questions & Discussion

    Question: I was waiting at bus stop number 8997 today, and I noticed that the 85 heading towards Bayshore stopped there to pick me up. It does this every day. The bus stop says it's only for the 56 Tunney's Pasture. Any reason for this? The stop doesn't seem to be officially a part of the route.

    My bad, didn't mean to come off as selfish! I had forgotten to add the location. I added the location above.

    6397 on 103 Moodie at 15:05. 4516 on 14 Carlington at Caldwell and Medford at 15:33. EDIT: 6397 was going towards Glebe Collegiate but then made a left. Passed by the stop at Carling and Cambridge if I remember correctly.
  21. But the VIN's tenth character is "K", which would correlate to a 1989 model year.

    5121 was on 80 Barrhaven Centre today at 15:15 at Carling and Holland. 4288 was also on 85 Bayshore at Carling and Melrose at 15:22.
  23. They were actually 1989 buses. The reason that they were numbered into the 90xx series beats me. The same goes for 8901-8911. Those were actually 1988 buses while the rest were 1989. 9101-9122 were 1990 MCI Classics. Only 9123-9125 were actually 91s. 9126 was a 1990 Orion V. The rest were 1991s. Even OC Transpo's 81xx Fishbowls weren't actually 1981s if I recall correctly. They were all 1982s. If I'm missing any or if I mixed something up @tomsbuspage, let me know.

    6523 on the 85 Bayshore at Carling/Melrose at 15:10. 5104 was on 80 Barrhaven Centre at Carling and Kirkwood at 15:26. This bus had an ad wrap on the driver's side of the bus that I was not able to see clearly.

    6679 on 56 Tunney's Pasture near Carling and Holland at 15:14. 6618 was on 85 Bayshore, was right in front of 6679, also at 15:14. 5091 was on 80 Barrhaven Centre, at Carling and Mayview at 15:28. @OCTranspoMaster, 5020's dark green driver side wrap is for Moosehead Beer. EDIT: My mistake, bus was 6679 not 6674.
