    STO bells above 11XX sound like this (the same as the STM) *SKIP TO 9:20*

    OC Bus Spottings

    Nevermind
  4. It was a proposal if I'm not mistaken. Though @JCL might be able to give you an update.

    It's better when you see the 4444 on the 44 as I once saw.

    2019 Nova LFS Order

    Will the new Nova's come with the bell that you hear on STO 11XX and up, or will it come with the standard OC bell you hear on the LF's/LFR's.

    OC Bus Spottings

    No I have the sighting of the year! I spotted a super rare (but unknown) Invero (I think 4XXX?) running as route 7. I forget the location of the spotting.

    Sto 2018 Hybrids

    Thumbnail on main STO page was removed. The thumbnail for 1801 - 1827 section of the page was also removed. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I'll remind the user who uploaded them to ask for permission first.

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Who sent that, @Oc4526 ?

    Just spotted that too on Baseline / Queensway Carleton
  12. Alrighty, so a little update courtesy of@Enviro_1203 : 4213 was recently retired due to structural integrity failure. I thought I'd create this retirement watch thread in advance as I'm not sure if OC will progressively take Invero's out of service once line 1 opens or if they'll take out 82 of the day of opening Line 1. 4288 was returned to service.

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Hell no... 8907 was retired in Summer 2017. HOWEVER! 8907 is still on STO property to this day as well as STO 9411 and 9516. https://www.flickr.com/photos/dudebrains/ You sure it wasn't Jan 2017? Because 9001 and 9011 we're retired WAY before Jan 2018.

    OC Bus Spottings

    seems rare, but I'd imagine it would have ran as route 97 or 98 (or something) after. I'm sure some of our experienced members could give us insight.
  18. Hey y'all, I'm sure you retro fans should be able to answer this. How come buses like the D40 and older models had a United Way logo on the bus whether it'd be on the front or the rear door Windows? Was their some kind of sponsorship at some point in time or did OC like to put random United Way stickers on their bus?

    GOA transit news, info etc

    OC didn't mention this but during March break, routes 154 and 155 WILL NOT run.

    4313 has an interesting partial ad wrap for (Nissan Sudan?) On the drivers side.

    They've updated it in June 2018 and has been available for viewing a month later *at least on PC/Desktop mode*

    2019 Nova LFS Order

    I was giving it some thought but I watched retroolschool on Youtube and apparently any NovaBus above 29-XXX+ (2009 and up) within the STM network is referred to as "Scrap" because apparently, they're even worse than the original LFS. I hope our Nova (scrap) won't be worse than our 1997 models (The rear door is now a push bar, that's a plus). Here's why he thinks the newer Nova's are garbage. Here is a short compilation of him saying "SCRAPPPP!" too.

    Any PAL/RPAL Holders Here?

    I have another hobby in addition to the transit fanning I do within Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec. I do recreational target shooting. Right now I'm in the process of getting my PAL/RPAL and hope to purchase my first restricted firearm in addition to getting a range membership with the RA Gun Club (RA Centre) in the coming months once/if the RCMP approves my application. I was wondering if there is anyone else on this forum who does recreational shooting as well. 😎

    Did you ever drop/break your camera?

    Nope. I use a Galaxy S9+ with an Otterbox Defender with the Otterbox Alpha Glass Screen Protector so not only do I get a badass camera, I get insane protection. My former camera was a Galaxy S7 Edge with an Otterbox Defender (back when they came with built-in screen protector smh...)
