  1. Three broken windows, structural damage, and damage to the driver's front wheel, as far as I heard. A tech from Novabus in St-Eustache, QC was supposed to come out to take a look at it.
  2. Unit 1950 (o/o by Welland Transit for NRT) will be out of commission, temporarily. The 2019 Novabus was involved in a collision causing significant front-end damage yesterday, as the 70/75. There were no injuries, but the bus needs bodywork before it can run again.
  3. So... 1950 was already in an accident, today. No injuries, but it lost some paint on the front end. It was running it's usual NRT 70, at the time, and was sideswiped by Brock University. Not the best pic, but 1151 was sent to cover the route.
  4. I posted this, then saw another 2019 LFS, running 501 Broadway. I didn't see the unit number, but I can confirm that there is at least one other new unit.
  5. I have a question for you guys: I thought I just saw a brand new unit in Welland: a Nova LFS 4, numbered unit 1174. It was running 506 Ontario, but only displaying 6.
  6. That's sad to hear. It's only a matter of time before the 1163 gets sold off. I haven't seen it since last month.
  7. Welland Transit may be getting a new garage building, but it sounds like they'll have to share with Public Works. I've included the link to the article. https://www.wellandtribune.ca/news-story/9366486-welland-eyes-15m-replacement-of-transit-garage/
  8. Well, 1158 and 1161 are no longer listed on GovDeals. Looks like they were snapped up.
  9. Not the best photo, but here's proof that 1163 is still active. It's currently running 504 Fitch.
  10. 1163 is still active; it was running 505 Lincoln Wellington today. As for what other unit they could retire, many drivers have told me that they're having problems with the 1146. The 1155 is also in the garage frequently for coolant issues, and the 1149 looks to be on its last legs. It might be one of those.
  11. I was talking to a driver a few days ago, and she told me that Welland has at least 2 new units on order. She also says that at least 2 current fleet members will be retired. Judging by fleet age, I'm thinking the 1163 is next in the chopping block.
  12. I'm surprised that 0251 is up for sale. They didn't even run it for that long. It's not a bad deal for a minimum bid of $1500, though.
  13. Dave Stuart of Welland Transit announced, earlier this week, that January will bring in some new service times. Effective Sunday, January 6, 2019, buses will run on the hour and half past. If my "insider" with the company is correct, Sunday services start at 9 and will go until 6:30, with units alternating between routes. Monday to Saturday will send an elimination of routes 510/511 in favour of services starting at 6:30am (normal routes). Buses will follow the transit model currently in place. Stuart says the changes come after a 400% increase of ridership in the morning and at night.
  14. Earlier today, the 1155 broke down at the corner of Dorothy and East Main Streets. The driver said the dash indicated there was low coolant in the system. We managed to limp the bus back around the block, but not before it could stall out twice more. I believe the 1155 may be out for an engine rebuild at 430xxx km. 1168 was brought in to replace it as 501/503.
