  1. Rider shortened the service to London. ONEX seems to be taking that corridor over. Hopefully they actually run the proper equipment this time.
  2. From what I've heard, it is pretty clean. They also don't use the bus terminal. They use the Petro Canada on John Counter Blvd and I believe both buses meet there as that's the halfway point.
  3. Boy I'm glad to hear that he's going to be okay. He was a nice guy when I met him.
  4. I was reading the service changes for January 3rd and it fails to mention the absorption of routes 27 and 901. Is that still happening and will the ARBOC they used on route 901 be assigned elsewhere like the other BusPlus/Flex routes once the VMC Classic buses take over the route?
  5. Ah so they're not going to run SUVs on their line runs like they've been doing? It seems like they rarely publicize their line run service on their social media.
  6. I guess they're not going ahead with plans to dig a tunnel under the CPR crossing? I thought that was the plan to deal with that stretch of trackage according to the schematics I saw.
  7. You know that feeling when you have everything set up....only to realize that my glove turned my camera to the wrong setting (it turned the knob to M when I usually shoot at AV)? Yeah....this happened. Now to correct it....somehow.
  8. It's great that the VMC Classic buses finally arrived. Any word on what these buses will be numbered?
  9. Is this replacing the 901 as well? And have the VMC Classic buses finally arrived?
  10. It would be nice if the article wasn't hidden behind an expensive paywall.
  11. Question for anybody in the know: Has GRT received the four Vicinity buses that they ordered for use on route 27?
  12. A couple of the 1900s have been seen on the Thunder Bay-Winnipeg route. 1903 and 1905 were seen and photographed outside Kenora.
  13. Will it still be using the XD40s?
  14. 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.
  15. Any routes being reinstated from the unnecessary service robbery of 2020?
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. What will they be using on this On Request service? Will it be cutaways like in Edmonton or vans like in Niagara Region?
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. The 5000s are Ram ProMaster vans that are used for the LINX+ paratransit service, unless that has changed somehow.
  22. 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.
