  1. Birchmount started getting 8100s earlier than that. 8102 and 8103 moved in December 2010. More moved over in 2011 and the amount increased and decreased over the years until 2018 when they all went back to WIlson.
  2. I've been noticing these antennas over the past two weeks. So far I've seen the following buses with them: 3498, 3609, 8878, 8883, 8887, 8888, 8890, 8891 and 8899. My theory is that this might have something to do with the Wifi Bus Pilot Program expansion this fall. Route 165, along with 34, are suppose to be added to the Wifi Pilot.
  3. They operate to Sheppard-Yonge Station since at least last school year. One goes onto 84A after while the other goes onto 984A. They skip the 84A/984A on street loop and run eastbound on Sheppard between Weston Rd and Rivalda. This school also has 4 other school trips (1 southbound 89 trip, 2 eastbound 165 trips, 1 westbound 36B trip). Also while on the topic of 84/984. When they go out of service at Weston Rd, in order to serve the entire loop the final stop is actually eastbound Sheppard at Abraham Welsh. When the buses are running along Bradstock and Rivalda the signs say "Short Turn to Sheppard Ave". There also use to be a few scheduled 84S to Arrow Rd trips from Sheppard-Yonge Station at the end of PM peak, but they seem to be gone this board.
  4. Looking at the tracking data that's exactly what it was doing. It finished service on 88 at Finch and deadheaded to Sheppard West Station to do 105. Looks like this is a scheduled block as 509 did the same thing on Tuesday and 801 today.
  5. 119 has had midday service for over a year now.
  6. 8583 is fully wrapped for Capital One
  7. 8880 was a RAD. Started by being sent to pick up officers from 41 Division and then spent the rest of the day on the Caribana Shuttle.
  8. That's a regular weekday run. Starts service by doing a southbound 927D trip before heading over to operate on 35 for AM peak.
  9. It was likely removed yesterday seeing as how it didn't go into service then (besides the ghost service on 21, 902 and 36). I saw it on Monday afternoon still wrapped. It was already missing portions of its eBus wrap prior to getting wrapped for Pride. They should use 3713 to trial a long term eBus livery now, similar to the Nova LFS HEVs, with an eBus logo on the sides and "Electric Bus" or something on the roof line.
  10. 3500 is wrapped for Indigenous History Month as well. According to my sources, 3713 was wrapped yesterday for this weekend's Pride Parade. Same wrap as the Novas.
  11. One of Queensway's 3300s, possibly 3365, has one as well.
  12. 1262 out on 32 today. 9027 back out on Dufferin today. There is some white residue around the rear destination sign still.
  13. 3709 was back on property by Wednesday. It was on 952 that day. It was pulled from 36 today to do the shuttle, likely cause there wasn't enough buses out there.
