  1. Well that's a wrap to the 14-Business Park Route! As of Monday (2020-12-14), the 14-Business Park route does not run anymore. From around Mid-September, Cornwall Transit added 2 new routes to the Business Park. 12 and 14 Business Park. 19-Business Park had already existed and was known as the Cornwall Business Park. The 12-Business Park would leave Pitt & Second Industrial Stop at 2:15, 2:50 and 3:20pm to Olymel, Olymel and Harmony and Olymel, and the 14-Business Park would leave Pitt & Second Industrial Stop at 6:15am, 3:15 and 4:15pm to Olymel and RDC, Olymel
  2. Sometimes yes, the VI's do go out on ''Conventional Routes''. For the most part recently, they go out on the 3 - Montreal/Brookdale when needed. I've seen 9881, 9882 and 9887 all run that route recently since the Pandemic has started. It seems when a 40ft. is needed and a Nova is unavailable, they'll take a VI off the ''Industrial Park'' Runs, and allot it onto the needed run. On Saturday's since the ''Business Park'' route does not run, they'll just put a VI on whatever run when needed as they sit idle.
  3. No, not that I know of. Some units are in worse condition than others, but still in operable condition as they all passed MOT inspection in July. Some example's include 0971, where the rear Destination Sign is inoperable and has been for over a year, as well as has some paint peeling off, covered up by spray paint (which if I might add is a brilliant solution). I personally haven't seen 0973 since mid-to-late October, so that could be an indication that that unit may indeed be in the worst condition. 0869 might be another unit that might soon be done for, as it hasn't been in service all to of
  4. For the most part, it is mostly an all Nova Day except the 4 - Riverdale, where 1583 runs that route. The EZ-Rider's run EXTRA's when needed. (Last week, 0868, 0971 and 0972 respectively ran EXTRA's for the 1 - Pitt on separate days). It seems when 1583 is in for maintenance, they add an EZ-Rider to that route. When the Business Park routes (usually the 12-series Business Park) needs an extra unit (VI's are unavailable), Transit adds an EZ-Rider to that route. On the whole, the EZ-Rider's appear to run as spares or on an as-needed basis when one of the units is unavailable (maintenance, etc.)
  5. Seems to be an addition to the regular service on Saturday's. Possibly ridership has risen and Cornwall Transit has ramped up service to deal with it. Yes, they are returning to normal Saturday service, as well as adding :30 minute service starting at 8:45 for the 1, 2 and 3, and an hour earlier than normal for the 4. Quoted from the website is this segment regarding the ''Temporary Route Adjustments''. Temporary Route Adjustments as of September 8: New Saturday Hours: 1) Pitt and McConnell - 8:45 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. 2) Sunrise and Cumberland -
  6. No, they did not. Destination signs continued to show their proper route listing. No sign of COVID-19 P/R. Although there is a new destination sign listing, OLYMEL, alongside CORNWALL BUSINESS PARK.
  7. Yes, they still are. All three are expected to be around for another year.
  8. 9887 sure is an interesting vehicle, with many features of its past life with Missisauga Transit! It's one off livery is Cornwall Transit Nova LFS inspired, and still has a few interior decals from predecessor MiWay! Last Wednesday and Thursday, was supporting the Cornwall Business Park S2.
  9. Hi all, does any one have a complete route listing for GO Bus and TTC Bus? Doing a document and hoping someone could help! -Thanks SDGBusFan
  10. Cornwall Transit Orion VI 9887 on today's 71 Express to St. Lawrence College. Happy New Year All!
  11. One of the Orion VI'S are on today's S1 Business Park Route. Get out and catch them when you can, slated to be retired in the next year or two!
  12. Is a driver able to put a custom slogan/ or word in this type of destination sign?
  13. I'll double check tonight, but I'm pretty sure this unit was a 1700-series unit? As @STO_1601 stated about, I was wondering why it was a 1700-series unit, as he said above! Is YRT/Nova destined to get any Nova Arctic buses in the coming months?
  14. Yeah, some people have been confused with this comment! What I'm trying to say, is last Thursday, in Summerstown Ontario, where delivered Nova's stop and get gas, last Thursday there was a YRT/VIVA Nova LFS Artic, numbered 1796! I have checked sources and YRT/VIVA haven't had new Artics since 2017? Does anyone have info on this sighting, or know that the bus was to a different Transit authority? And again, how often does Nova deliver buses out? Thanks all, and sorry for the confusion!
