    Do we have the manufacturer and model of this "incident bus"? Supposedly it was being transported from California.

    Do any members have more detail on this incident. It would be nice to know which manufacturer, and when the unveiling will occur. Perhaps someone has a couple of photo's of the accident!

    2018/2019 Electric Bus Project

    Hello members, my first post so if I'm not in the correct thread or if someone posted this elsewhere, please go easy on me. Heard this story today from a driver. A battery powered 60ft articulated bus was en-route from California to Vancouver for a type trial. The bus was being carried on a semi with a very long trailer that accommodates the vehicle. Everything went well until they were a couple of blocks from the transit center and a corner was cut to sharply, the bus hit something and was knocked off the trailer and landed wheels up on the ground. Immediate panic, as the bus is supposed to be front and center for unveiling in front of Horgan and Moonbeam in a few days. Trolley wires had to be lowered to allow cranes and wreckers to pick up the bus and put it back on the trailer. Parts including a windshield had to be Express shipped in, as well the bus has to have body repairs and paint work before the unveiling. I imagine the semi driver is looking for a new job.
