  1. Is this replacing the 901 as well? And have the VMC Classic buses finally arrived?
  2. It would be nice if the article wasn't hidden behind an expensive paywall.
  3. Question for anybody in the know: Has GRT received the four Vicinity buses that they ordered for use on route 27?
  4. A couple of the 1900s have been seen on the Thunder Bay-Winnipeg route. 1903 and 1905 were seen and photographed outside Kenora.
  5. Will it still be using the XD40s?
  6. People will get confused by the cabs. There needs to be at least 3 ProMasters for every area that's lost service. Cabs are not acceptable in my mind.
  7. Any routes being reinstated from the unnecessary service robbery of 2020?
  8. I managed to catch Badder Bus Lines 117 running on Megabus schedule 2740 to London on Friday afternoon. For those interested, it's ex Cherrey Bus Lines 117
  9. There is now a third bus for use on the Windsor-Toronto route. It's a 35 foot TEMSA TS 35E, numbered 18. According to the VIN, it's ex Ontario Northland L1907, which was sent back to Damera Bus Sales some time in 2020. The driver of bus 20 (on the 16:30 Toronto-Ottawa route) told me that there is apparently a fourth unit numbered 21, which is another 35 foot unit.
  10. What will they be using on this On Request service? Will it be cutaways like in Edmonton or vans like in Niagara Region?
  11. In reading the Overland Custom Coach website, I have determined what this is. It's a Glaval Bus Commute body on a Ford Transit chassis.
  12. Apparently another new service has opened in Ontario, this time in the underutilized Hamilton-London corridor. It's called P.A Systm Transit (that's actually how they spell it) and they apparently use 56 passenger highway coaches. They also have a line run that goes from Hamilton to Niagara Falls. There's not much known about this new service but I certainly wish them luck. https://www.pasystmtours.ca/transit
  13. The 5000s are Ram ProMaster vans that are used for the LINX+ paratransit service, unless that has changed somehow.
  14. In reading their website, it would appear as it makes local stops in the less populous areas along that corridor, including a stop at the hilariously misspelled "CABOURG". They also need to put in the stop locations so that people won't get confused trying to find where the bus is.
  15. You're referring to the Rural Partner route 515 that was taken over by 417 Bus Lines after they bought Delaney. As far as I know, those runs will be reinstated once the pandemic ends (if it ever ends). Here's the bus they normally used on it, bus 32-97 leaving Place du Portage on the afternoon commuter trip.
  16. They would have to. I also wonder if they'll do seven days a week on that corridor as it's a very busy corridor. I could also see them taking over Hamilton-Guelph and Hamilton-Kitchener as Coach Canada has cut both corridors.
  17. They'll need more buses for that service since they only have two units in Ontario at the moment.
  18. So to sum up: Instead of reinstating service beyond the current skeleton frequency levels, they somehow have enough in the budget for a pilot project revolving around security checks? They're not an airline. Message to VIA: This is NOT the thing you should be focusing on. Reinstating regular service levels back to before the pandemic SHOULD BE what you should focus on.
  19. Ummmm.....that was an article from 2016.
  20. They're TS 45 buses numbered 19 and 20.
  21. It means the end of fixed route transit service in Fort Erie. I think TOK will keep the ElDorados for other contracts.

    Cobourg Transit

    https://www.cobourg.ca/Modules/News/index.aspx?FeedId=bc61ff19-93f1-4966-99ff-9cb13dd74666&newsId=bd286906-8740-43ee-a547-9730fc3e2827# The OnDemand pilot will be known as Cobourg Rides, in conjunction with Century Transportation and RideCo. It will begin with a soft launch on April 19, 2021. On June 14, service will switch to OnDemand for the remainder of the pilot, combining phases 1 and 2 of the original plan and moving fully to OnDemand. This will replace conventional routes 1 and 2 but will apparently use conventional buses once fully rolled out.
