  1. Oh I can see this going well. They're already being massacred on social media by angry residents over the cuts (which I contend they were going to make anyway but COVID was used as a convenient crutch) to service. This was the absolute WRONG decision and proves how backwards their rationale is.
  2. It was postponed due to the pandemic. They also are negotiating with another contractor called DriverSeat Owen Sound to operate the service. Article below: https://www.owensoundsuntimes.com/news/local-news/grey-negotiating-agreement-with-driverseat-to-operate-transit-service
  3. From what I was told, 1914 is in unwrapped and 1921 is on the property. I didn't see it when I passed the garage though so it might be inside.
  4. They are still running the Vicinity buses on route 18, but nowhere else. Even with 2/3 capacity, it's difficult to maintain social distancing on those buses.
  5. As far as I know, the 30 foot buses will be assigned for route 27. The BusPlus and 901 Flex routes are still under contract to Voyago. I'm not sure if they're going to extend that contract. Speaking of the Flex project, did anything come of the 902 and 903 Flex experiment?
  6. I would like to submit a feature photo. It's York Region Transit 1912, a 2020 New Flyer XE40 Xcelsior Charge, after completing a trip on route 44 Bristol, with the charging arm in the down position.
  7. These two ARBOC buses are for the Newmarket Local On-Demand service, formerly route 520/521. Photos attached here:
  8. Also I believe all buses are being retrofitted with wifi transmitters as there's a mysterious new device mounted to the roof on all buses above the driver's compartment next to the emergency beacon.
  9. Has anybody seen any of the 35 foot MCIs that ONTC supposedly ordered? And what is its number?
  10. I wonder if it'll be in iON colours or if it would be in generic grey as a leased spare.
  11. Chris W

    Tecumseh Transit

    I believe that is bus 4, which is a Glaval Bus Titan II LF, which replaced 2.
  12. When is the Voyago contract up? I suspect that, if there's any chance of the BusPlus routes moving in house, that they'll wait for the current contract to lapse.
  13. Not "Is the operator okay?" or "I hope everyone that was on the bus are okay.". Seriously, it doesn't matter if there's injuries to the occupants of both vehicles, including the operator.
  14. And the most troublesome, hence why they're retiring so early.
  15. If there was a 30' electric bus order though, it would be a BYD K7M. NovaBus doesn't make small buses.
  16. I believe the 35 footers were bought for the Thunder Bay-Winnipeg extension.
  17. They purchased a few more Temsas to replace the ones they leased. I think there's now 7 of them. A far as I know, the J3500s are also there but since nobody's seen them, it's hard to know for sure what the roster looks like without a contact at ONTC.
  18. It unfortunately wouldn't surprise me considering how quickly they bailed on the Guelph-Owen Sound route. He seems a tad sketchy in my talks with him.
  19. 1. The support vehicle in question, 500343 is a Jeep Compass purchased in 2018. I need to update the support vehicle roster but I just haven't had the time. 2. 0913 is listed as having an "unknown" status because I edited it as such due to information I received from a contact at HSR saying the fire it had did not deem it to be a total loss. As to whether that's changed, I'm not too sure. I'll have to check with my contact. 3. When I was driving past the garage on a mask delivery last week, I noticed something on the hill. It is 0601, which has recently been spotted in the maintenance bay for a potential return to service if the September service changes do go ahead as planned. That's also why 0701-0709 are listed as "In Storage". 4. The reason the CPTDB Wiki is prohibiting you from adding photos is because an administrator has to approve you to be an editor. However, saying that it's "acting really stupid" is not helping your case for pending approval. Of course, you could be talking about the forum software that you're erroneously calling the CPTDB Wiki, which is its own entity.
  20. Would anybody happen to know the numbers of the two Ram Promaster/Creative Carriage CS-2 buses used on Para-Bus? Would they be 808 and 809? And what do the numbers 1729-8810 mean on the rear door of the Promasters?
  21. It was number 11 and it has since been spotted at City View Bus Sales in Mississauga, with the Kasper logos still on it. I'm guessing he sold it.
  22. Oh no we will. HSR needs it.
  23. Was it a hybrid or diesel? I ask because 3-623 has a white sign.
