    OC Bus Spottings

    My friend rode that very trip!
  2. Don’t know if this qualifies as “disturbing or shocking” but it sure is funny! I thought I’d seen it all until I saw a guy doing push-ups in the aisle of a Via train...

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    I’ll ask a driver friend of mine to investigate the matter of that bus (the lfs on death row). Everybody PLEASE take note of all 02xx spottings and report them to the spotting thread

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Not too sure if this belongs in a new thread or if we can just rename this thread to "STO Retirement watch", but I drove past the Hull yard today and saw what looked to be an 02-04 LFS on death row (was absolutely an LFS, just couldn't see it's number). I will look into the matter more closely next week when I will be at the STO for the monthly council meeting (Next thursday 4PM at the STO on Jean-Proulx). It could also be that the bus has a defect and is awaiting a fix and they ran out of space in the regular defect parking spots (pretty much all exterior bus parking)

    Can't stand the noise of Inveroes. I feel bad for the drivers who are constantly exposed to that level of noise for long periods of time.

    Sorry about that, I tried using Emoji from my iPhone to make a facepalm, but the Browser version of CPTDB does not like them..... but no, 9224 is retired and completely parted out. Please excuse the confusion.

    🤦‍♂️ 9224!!!!!!
  8. I got this notification this morning via text message: “Some signs inside the bus are not displaying route # and destination but the next stop shows correctly. We hope to have this fixed soon.”

    That is a great idea!!!! I think that would be wicked AND feasible because the ex-Calgary classics could become parts busses (and if you have 7 buses [the three retired ones have been parted out already] feeding one bus, you have a lot of extra parts. I was already intending on going to the STO board meeting this Thursday so I will definitely bring it up!

    It is strictly impossible that one of those units was put back into service. They have pretty much been gutted as much as you can gut a bus and they would need very important repairs to be put back on the road (some of the units have had their doors open for god knows how long)

    Nice shot! You should submit it for feature (IDK for what reason/event though)
