    I just got news today when I was downtown that one of our Novabus LFS Diesel Units that we ordered has arrived equipped with a REAR DISPLAY Marking it as our First Bus To Be Equipped With a Functional Rear Display

    my guess the Novabus LFS  179-181 The XD35 Will be numbered 182 And the Community bus Numbered 183.

    They’re really not in a position to complain about 164, it was practically donated to them for scrap value- as a body part donor for their other NG units.
     

    The fact that it actually turned a wheel is simply a surprising bonus.

    They have been mostly retired and i think will be finished off with this novabus order that we just Received 

    The LFS's are also very similar to MiWay Spec LFS's

    31 is a paratransit bus which normally runs on demand, hence it has no LED display (I would be surprised if this actually was in fixed route service)

    what model / year is it pls it was in service on the 6 route

    They haven’t got the parts or the proprietary diagnostic software, and calling in cityview all that way for a service call ever time it goes down would be financially irresponsible. The only reason it’s there was that it was practically donated to the city.

    well it was in service for a little bit.

    i have only seen one shot of that 164 in service with SSM, guess it's just ACTIVE IN THE GARAGE all the time!

    Or its dead, as the hybrid system was old when we received 1684 in May of 2019, and might have just lasted Sault Transit 2-3 Years time working, before it probably just died. and probably crawls around the facility/depot

    Sault Ste Marie will be getting 3 Nova LFS next year using the Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative. Due to the fact that pricing came in higher than budgeted, the procurement of one parabus will be deferred.

    https://saultstemarie.ca/Cityweb/media/City-Clerk/Council-Agendas/2021/2021_10_25_Agenda.pdf?ext=.pdf (pages 96 and 97)

    How did you find the fact that they are using the Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative?

    They are not the only ones who make the 35 foot. BYD, VMC and ADL also offers the same. This is a tender for ine 35 foot bus. Who ever wins the tender will supply the bus.

    So basically We could get any Bus including electrics so this is basically opening a door for Electric Buses 

    I'll be sure to keep ya'll updated on this as it develops!

  9. Anyone Know if This Means Sault Transit Is Getting an Extra X35 Bus, Unknown Model but New flyer is the only company that sells 35  Footer's in canada that Sault Transit Has Ordered from so only the time can tell? (Not into smart stuff so im just guessing)

    Also All Of The Xcelsiors have entered service, as of this time of me knowing, and some of them have Full Advertisement Wraps on them, to my Knowledge, one is wrapped in an arby's wrap and my mother told me one was wrapped in a Green For Life Livery
