    OC Transpo/STO Mistakes

    This game was inspired by the STM Game in the Quebec section. Place any pictures if you spot any errors, mistakes or outdated things anywhere that is on OC Transpo property or related to OC Transpo. Here are my findings, can you spot them what's wrong with 'em? 1) 2) 3) 4) Have fun, ISMichael. :angry:

Total in service: 558Units XXXX - Currently at St.Laurent Garage but not yet seen revenue service. XXXX - Last seen being tested in Mississauga, ON XXXX - Last seen at Thermo King but not yet been to St.Laurent Garage. XXXX - Last seen at Daimler Buses in Mississauga, ON XXXX - Last seen as a Training Bus but not in revenue service yet. XXXX - Unknown Notes *5048 was accidentally put in revenue service but will still be highlighted green. ============================================================================== If you see the Hybrid buses that's not in service, get a picture (carry a working camera everywhere you go, it pays off), post 'em here, or your spottings of them if their on the road. Not sure if OC Transpo is still testing them, but I got a couple of shots of 5001 in the layup at Blair Station, at 11:41AM EST today. It looked REALLY odd to see it laying up beside a New Flyer D60LF (or the manufacturer of the product itself) but it doesn't mean it's in full service unless their is word from a trusted source that says it is. Hopefully someone can explain why it was there, oh and their was also a service truck in the lay up, so I doubt it's for the Hybrid. Point55.

    Please do not reuse my pictures without permission, and do not ask me for the codes to these signages. Some of the signages below are for viewing purposes only and should not be signed up while a bus is in service. (Obvious reasons) All images have been taken today, and if you would like to contribute other signages, then that is perfectly fine.

    90xx & 92xx D40 Watch

    As I stated above, Training Dept. wants all D40s reserved only for training, but obviously, the early morning and late evening placer did not read the memo stating the reservation of those buses and are putting them into revenue service. Afaik, only one D40 did not get sent for Training today.

    Route 94 is a limited stop route off the Transitway. Double Deckers do operate on it. The Double Deckers actually do not fit. The Garage doors are not big enough.

    This whole discussion about the Kanata flashing is driving me nuts. All buses were flashing Kanata and now that problem is being fixed...

    Reactions to Transit Enthusiasts

    Artic or not, doesn't matter. If your going to photograph a bus on public property, I doubt you'd receive a "bad reaction" (whatever that means) Be confident in yourself and just take your pictures. Perhaps you'll improve a lot better in your photographs.

    I was told by another source (Not going to reveal who, it doesn't matter anyways) that OC Transpo bought some more units. Though I cannot confirm this, so we'll have to wait until these buses get delivered.

    OC Bus Spottings

    I saw 4380 at the Garage and got myself some pictures and the damage was quite surprising. I'm just glad that none of those students were hurt, or even burned! The interior of the bus is burned too and some of the stuff inside was all melted (including pull cords, panel on ceiling, advertisement) The mechanics and fleet also still have not ruled out the cause of the fire.

    6399 now has a farebox. I read a memo from fleet that mentioned the new buses to be numbered from 6399 to 6404. (assuming 6400 isn't skipped)
