  1. Perfect. I caught 1502, one of their Sprinter vans on the 19:00 arrival last Friday.
  2. Is there a way you can compress the image down to below 10 MB to allow you to post it?
  3. But you know what I'm not seeing? WHITBY. Otherwise known as the town DRT forgot. When are the local buses coming back to Whitby?
  4. The ex Ontario Northland unit (5044) has the sign programmed for the Toronto trips. The other destinations aren't programmed in the signs. The second hand H3-45s don't have signs installed yet to my knowledge. Personally, I think they should program in their schedule number and destination. For example: 2704 Kitchener-Guelph-Toronto Harbourfront
  5. I had a feeling it was. Does this mean the 2022s will enter service shortly?
  6. Must you invade EVERY thread with your inane comments? Seriously, tone it down with the inane chatter. PLEASE!
  7. And I'm guessing this will only happen IF the Conservatives manage to get back in? That's the pessimist in me talking.
  8. I ventured out to Toronto to photograph the two afternoon departures. I discovered by photographing and running the VIN numbers that the two Prevost X3-45 buses are both second hand units. Knowing Flixbus' penchant for using the final four digits of the VIN as their fleet numbers, these units are 7308 (2011 Prevost X3-45, ex Ontario Northland 5215) and 5504 (2016 Prevost X3-45, ex Indian Trails MI-134). They also apparently use a Prevost H3-45 for the morning trip to Ottawa along with an MCI J4500 as either a spare or expansion unit. I say "expansion" because I discovered on my way home last night that there is a stop on Main Street West near McMaster University at the same location as the old Coach Canada stop.
  9. Probably not. The new replacement buses haven't arrived yet to my knowledge.
  10. Three new New Flyer XE40 buses have entered service as of yesterday. They're numbered 2121-2123. https://scontent-yyz1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t39.30808-6/277589551_7249005358503216_1050968651833142584_n.jpg?stp=dst-jpg_s526x296&_nc_cat=100&ccb=1-5&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=AoN5_1bwzCcAX_CEXk7&_nc_ht=scontent-yyz1-1.xx&edm=AN6CN6oEAAAA&oh=00_AT9Oz_yOBLjkZtJz6cnr17CKmUrWwT2kAyqHQyTZNngLag&oe=6249FA75
  11. I hope that, at the very least, Flixbus gave Gallexy funds to purchase new equipment. Their equipment roster lists a bunch of Prevost coaches that are, in some cases, almost 25 years old, which won't fly with today's passengers.
  12. It seems like YRT is trying their hardest to turn riders away. Anything to save a buck I guess. But York Region is famous for senselessly cutting service and wasting money on inane projects or advertising to "win back" customers despite doing nothing about the extremely high fares and poor (at best) service that they caused.
  13. This leads me to thinking that they're going to run their own buses maintained by Gallexy Tours. Any word yet on what the fleet will consist of?
  14. It would be rather interesting to see an electric bus trial similar to York Region and Brampton running around the streets of Burlington. It was so interesting in fact that it repeated itself three more times. Darn technology.
  15. Thank you muchly. I thought they had ended the use of the Ram chassis. I guess TTC is the last to utilize the Ram chassis.
  16. Are we any closer to reinstating full service along the Corridor (especially in Southwest Ontario) and long distance service like Sudbury-White River back to pre-COVID levels now that restrictions are being eased? A huge brace of trains are still yet to come back, particularly those heading west from Toronto to Windsor. Those being: 78, 79, 82, 83, 85 and 88.
  17. Why wouldn't it be? Political announcements always have a transit agency's newest equipment.
  18. Oh....that was supposed to be a joke!? So edgy. The thing is, jokes are supposed to be FUNNY. This wasn't. We know. We've seen you foam over it within the past three days. What you seem to not understand is that every bus has a certain lifespan in service. Once a bus is deemed not feasible to keep, it's retired and either sold off to somewhere else or disposed of. It's the natural order of things.
  19. You're still spamming. Stop it.
  20. Did you not read the whole post? He said he'll update us when he can. You're spamming the thread now.
  21. Because I checked the upload date and I still have the original photo on my laptop.
  22. 1. Who told you you could use MY photo of 7011-09 (that I took on March 25, 2013) as your profile photo? Please do not use other people's photos without either asking first or giving the original photographer credit. That's theft. 2. I have not updated the Wiki in a bit as I've been busy with work. 3. As it stands, we don't know exactly how many buses are retiring so can we please calm down about this topic?
  23. New or old driver's window?
  24. He corrected it. It's 7004-09 not 7007.
