  1. Cornwall Transit has programmed some new P/R codes to advertise the continuation of masks on public transit. P/R is as follows: *MASKS REQUIRED* *MASQUES OBLIGATOIRES*
  2. Stratford Transit 2283 and 2284 spotted in-transit for delivery at Petro-Canada in Summerstown, Ontario today, (Friday, March 4th, 2022) at around 07:20. Spotted with no decals, or bike racks. One was displaying McCarthy, other displaying East End on the destination sign.
  3. September Service Changes for Cornwall: Released on September 4th at 23:57, the GTFS data for Transit was updated for September service changes. These changes only affect the Business Park routes. The 71 - Express is still on hold, and the 61 - Community Service still only runs Monday to Friday. No new routes, just service updates. The conventional routes (1-4) remain the same, as do the Community Service routes. These changes will come into effect on Tuesday, September 7th, 2021. The 12 - Cornwall Business Park 2 has now been changed to the 20 - Cornwall Business Park 2. Block BUSINESSPARK2_IndustrialT1_1:1155446:1162928 (06:15 - 06:38) follows nearly the same routing as before. It follows Second Street East, then left onto Campbell, then right onto Loyalist to service Ridgewood, then left onto Education, then right onto Marleau to service Olymel, RDC and Harmony as before. Block BUSINESSPARK2_IndustrialT2_1:1162892:1162928 (14:15 - 14:45) now goes straight on Second Street East, then left onto Boundary Road to serve the High School then back to normal routing through Harmony and RDC. As before it followed the 17 - Business Park through the manufacturing sector of the Business Park. Block BUSINESSPARK2_IndustrialT2_2:1162895:1162928 (14:50 - 15:17) follows the same routing as the first block of the day. Block BUSINESSPARK2_IndustrialT1_1:1155446:1162928 (06:15 - 06:38) Block BUSINESSPARK2_IndustrialT2_3:1154890:1162928 (15:20 - 14:01) follows the same routing as before. No changes. The 12 - Cornwall Business Park 3 has new run times. Before going into detail, technically this route was run before, but was classified as the afternoon 12 - Business Park 2, instead of the midnight 12 - Business Park 3. 2 buses would run this route. The first would depart the garage at around 14:07 to arrive at Pitt & Second Industrial Stop for 14:15, and run its scheduled run. Then, at around 13:42, an extra bus would depart and arrive Pitt & Second Industrial Stop for 14:47, and would be classified as an extra and would run the 12 - Business Park 3 routing, the midnight run. At 16:00 when the afternoon 12 route ended, the first bus would depart Not In Service towards the garage, and the extra 12 bus would run as extra on the 17 - Business Park. In short, the extra bus of the 12 - Business Park 2, has now been classified and is running as the 12 - Business Park 3. Block BUSINESSPARK3_IndustrialT1_1:1162891:1162927 (14:50 - 15:17) follows the same routing as the first block of the 20 - Cornwall Business Park 2. It follows Second Street East, then left onto Campbell, then right onto Loyalist to service Ridgewood, then left onto Education, then right onto Marleau to service Olymel, RDC and Harmony, then towards Pitt & Second Industrial Stop. Block BUSINESSPARK3_IndustrialT1_2:1162918:1162927 (15:20 - 16:15) follows a similar route as before the September changes. Second Street, left onto Campbell, right onto Marleau, left onto Boundary, then left onto Industrial Park to service Olymel, right onto Optimum drive, right onto SCM towards RDC, then towards Pitt & Second Industrial Stop. Block BUSINESSPARK3_IndustrialT1_3:1162881:1162927 (16:15 - 16:43) follows the same route as the 17 block did before. Second, left onto Boundary, right onto Marleau, left onto Campbell, left onto Loyalist to service Ridgewood, the right onto Education and left onto Second. Block BUSINESSPARK3_IndustrialT2_1:1162913:1162927 (23:15 - 23:35) follows the same routing as before. Second, left on Campbell, right on Marleau, left onto Boundary, then onto Industrial to service Olymel, RDC and Harmony. The 17 - Business Park is now the 17 - Cornwall Business Park. All blocks from the AM to the PM are the same, except Block BUSINESSPARK_IndustrialT3_4:1162882:1162926 (16:15 - 16:46) This block follows nearly the same routing as the afternoon blocks, but instead of heading North on Boundary to service the High School, it loops around Ridgewood twice. From Second, left onto Campbell, right onto Loyalist to service Ridgewood, right onto Education to service Leclerc, then right onto Second. From Second, right again onto Campbell, right onto Loyalist to service Ridgewood (where it sits for 8 1/2 minutes), right onto Education to service Leclerc, then right onto Second to where it arrives at Pitt & Second at 16:46, to end Business Park service for the afternoon. There were always 3 buses running the afternoon Business Park routes. 2 on the 12-2, 1 on the 17. Then the 2 on the 17. Now, all 3 have their separate routes. To recap, the 12 - Business Park 2 is now the 20 - Cornwall Business 2. The midnight 12 - Business Park 3 now runs in the afternoon, and is now the 12 - Cornwall Business Park 3. The 17 - Business Park has the same routes, run times and stop times, but is now called the 17 - Cornwall Business Park. Destination signs remain the same. In other news, the 98's are still alive and out. Last week, at least one was out for the afternoon on the 12. The 15's seem to now be scheduled on the 17 and 12 (this was before the service changes, we will have to see what goes out. Nothing should change, but we will see this week.) with 1793, 1794 or 1895 subbing in when one is out of service. As of last week, the 98's provided service for the 12-2 and the extra afternoon run. To recap, the 12 - Business Park 2 is now the 20 - Cornwall Business 2. The midnight 12 - Business Park 3 now runs in the afternoon, and is now the 12 - Cornwall Business Park 3. The 17 - Business Park has the same routes, run times and stop times, but is now called the 17 - Cornwall Business Park.
  4. Cornwall Transit has once again, changed the route number system on one of their routes. The old 18 - Business Park is now the 17 - Business Park. Save for the name change, everything is the same as before. Same route, same destination signs, same as before. The change came on Monday of this week, (2021-06-21). To recap, it was the 19 - Business Park before 2020-12-14, then was switched to the 18 - Business Park, along with a new route. (for further info, visit the comment posted on page 27 of the Cornwall Transit forum). Then, on Monday of this week (2021-06-21), the change came. To recap, the 18 is now the 17, with no changes.

  5. Complete license plate list and inaugural service dates for the new 2021 21xx-series Nova LFS' with Cornwall: Unit: License Plate: Date Entered into Service: 2101 - 261 1BL - Entered service on May 15th, 2021 2102 - 261 0BL - Entered service on April 30th, 2021 2103 - 660 1BL - Entered service on May 21st, 2021 2104 - 660 2BL - Entered service on April 29th, 2021 2105 - 660 3BL - Entered service on May 13th, 2021 2106 - 660 4BL - Entered service on May 11th, 2021
  6. Some updates from Cornwall and the fleet: 2101’s license plate is as follows - 261 1BL 9882 was in service on the 12 - Business Park Extra yesterday (2021-06-01) . Although a common sighting two months ago, this is an uncommon occurrence now with the older batches of LFS’ on the route and the new batches in service. The 98xx-series are now on a as-needed, spare basis. (Example 2021-06-01): 1585 on the 12, 1792 on the 18. Lastly, 1792’s driver side front panel has finally been re-wrapped. 1792 had been in an accident 3 years, was repaired and the crushed driver side panel where the mirror and small window were, was repaired and left white without a blue stripe. This made 1792 stand out from the rest of the Nova’s, as this single panel was left blank, without a stripe. This panel has now been re-wrapped, with the Cornwall dark-blue stripe, and blends in with the rest of the 15xx, 17xx, 18xx-series.
  7. 9882 was placed on the 18 - Business Park last Tuesday, May 25th. The 98's are expected to be with Cornwall for another year, but are on spare, as-needed duty.
  8. 2103 made its debut in service yesterday on the 2 - Cumberland. It has replaced 2106, then was out for a short while, till 1792 replaced it so. All of the new units have seen service and are active. Added license plates for the 21xx-series: 2105 - 660 3BL 2106 - 660 4BL
  9. 2101 made its debut in service yesterday, on the 14:45 run of the 2 - Sunrise, replacing 2104. On a side note, Cornwall has listed ALL of the 08xx-series and 09xx-series ElDorado's for auction, meaning the 98's will hold on for just a bit longer.

  10. That is what was running that evening. 1585, 1586 and 1792 on the late-night 12 - Business Park 3, with 1895 on the 1 - Pitt/McConnell, 1793 on the 2 - Sunrise/Cumberland, and 1794 on the 3 - Montreal/Brookdale.
  11. 2105 made its inaugural run on the 06:15 1 - Pitt this morning, then was switched out in favor of 1792 within 4 hours of run time. Side note: 1585 was running the 18 - Business Park this morning, and is continuing its duties on the afternoon 18 - Business Park. Although not rare, it is very unusual for a Nova to be running a morning, or midday Business Park run. The last time was a Nova was running a Business Park route was Tuesday, February 9th, 2021. 1794 was placed on the 12 - Business Park. Soon to be a common sighting when the '98s and the '08/'09's are retired. The Nova's can sometimes be found on the late night Business Parks. An example being 1585, 1586 and 1792. These units were running the late night 12 - Business Park on April 19th, 2021.
  12. 1895 is now back into service, starting off on the 3 - Brookdale this morning at 06:15, and is still out in service. For anyone who is wondering what the new Nova units look like, Boyer Signs (who wraps Cornwall Transit's buses) has posted an update on them, with before and after pictures. https://www.facebook.com/boyersigns/posts/1876652889158504
  13. Just a few observational sightings on the new 21xx-series of Nova Bus LFS' with Cornwall. Starting of with drivetrain, same as the last batches. Cummins L9 with an Allison B400R. Destination signs. This series features white-LED Luminator Horizon SMT Destination Signs in the front, side and rear. This series also features the old-style drivers window, same as the 15xx, 17xx and 18xx-series orders. The steering wheel is a 3-spoke design from Nova, different from the past series of Nova's with Cornwall. Interior wise, complete revamp. The wheelchair flip-up seats are all green, and the rest are blue backing, with green middle inserts. The bike racks are the same, being a Sportworks DL2 used on all of the conventional-route buses. For the paint, more of a wrap, this series is a FULL revamp of the past schemes. The front is full blue, tapering to a line on the curbside and streetside of the bus, with a green stripe underneath, same as the 20xx-series of Arboc's. Featuring the new Cornwall Transit Way to Go logo on the rear 3/4 panel of both sides. They feature the new transmission intercooler (circular vent on the rear streetside of the unit). Cornwall Transit, and ...Way to Go are featured above the framed-windows on both sides. Rear wise, virtually the same excect for the placement of the fleet number decals. Fleet number decals are under the top vent to the left, and Cornwall Transit...Way to Go logo's are on the right. Cornwall Transit web address is placed on the top of the top vent. New vents are placed above the indicators, as standard with Nova Bus orders. The NovaBus logo is placed under the front fleet number, in a stylish grey fashion, popping nicely with the blue. License Plates are as follows. 2102 - 261 0BL 2104 - 660 2BL 2102 and 2104 have been the only two units in service, so far. (2021-05-09)
  14. It's 1175. 1175's tracker does not track to the public. Not on the 61 - Community Service East/West, nor on the 4 - Riverdale.
  15. It was more brief today. 1792 replaced 2102 at 08:15! It was brought out at the start of the day on the 1 - Pitt at 06:15.
