    Hopefully it'll still be there when I show up. Also do the Lanark branded MCIs (3941-43) still operate on the Carleton Place route? People have spotted buses other than those three doing that route recently.

    How about you not try to burn bridges with administrators? You should count yourself lucky you haven't received a reprimand. You're not an admin. Stop acting like one!

    How long is/was it there? And is Classic in the same garage as Leduc?

    Grande West Transportation

    I wonder where it is going. Did you happen to see what colour it was?

    It's 21118. It's getting some work done.

    1. No it isn't. As I have explained, the fluttering is the CNG pressure release. It has nothing to do with the cooling fans. All CNG powered buses have that. 2. You obviously don't know how a procurement process works.

    That fluttering is the CNG pressure release when the operator lifts off the throttle if memory serves me. Those that are more mechanically inclined can would know more than me on this.

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    I'm going two days before that charter but thank you for that. I'm thinking of perhaps going to get some STO photos on the Tuesday. You forget that I have already tendered my registration for the convention and am in contact with the organizers.

    What routes are they primarily on nowadays or is it possible to see them anywhere in Gatineau/Hull?

    The original fleet number is still visible on the front of the bus. The number 417 Bus Lines gave it is 32-97 which is displayed above the door and driver's window.

    Apologies for the broken link. It's on a Freightliner chassis. Here's a photo since I couldn't embed the link.

    Evans has a new bus for its commuter service. The bus is numbered 186 and is a Krystal Bus KLX40. This announcement was per their Facebook page. http://<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpermalink.php%3Fstory_fbid%3D2322226904717385%26id%3D1561313534142063&width=500" width="500" height="669" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>

    Tell us how you really feel. Don't sugar coat it or anything.
  15. 8475 was spotted today in Hamilton. Any particular reason why Hamilton division is getting the newest DDS buses?

    Ontario Northland

    This vehicle was their display model at OTE. It's a TEMSA TS 35E with the number L1907. I'm wondering if Ontario Northland is still planning on getting the J3500s that are on order. Would anybody know if/when they're due to show up?

    CitiBus (Watertown, NY)

    The cutaways are ARBOC Spirit of Freedoms by the look of it. Interesting that they got those.

    Have the Delaney buses retained their numbers and wraps for the routes they do now that they're with 417 Bus Lines? For instance, 901 (515 Cornwall) and 1801 (517 North Glengarry)?

    Buses for sale

    That would look good with a repaint back into the two tone NYCTA colours.
  20. Tuesday, bus 8462 entered service on a 16 piece.

    Grande West Vicinity

    It would make more sense getting the Enviro 200 here, as they are the 9m vehicle of choice in the Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative. However, Ottawa is not a part of that to my knowledge. As for the E200 here in Ontario, only two companies that are part of the Metrolinx consortium have actually purchased them, those being Orangeville and Simcoe County LINX. The Vicinity currently runs in Burlington (11), Cobourg (1), Orangeville (3, 2 demos, 1 production), Oakville (14), Midland (1), Simcoe County (4), Welland (2) and Hamilton (5+6 on order=11). In terms of customers in the province, Grande West outnumbers Alexander Dennis. My question is, where would the city put 30 foot buses if they were to order them? I didn't think there were enough low ridership feeder routes to warrant purchasing them.

    Port Hope Transit

    Chimnissing uses a standard ProMaster van with the standard door.

    It actually does. It's numbered 177 and it's a Ford F650 with a Grech Motors GM40 body. It looks like it is a used unit as well.

    Nothing is confirmed nor is ordered for 2019 from my contact. I want to know where you got your information from.

    Does that have a fleet number?
