    Buses for sale

    That would look good with a repaint back into the two tone NYCTA colours.
  2. Tuesday, bus 8462 entered service on a 16 piece.
  3. Chimnissing uses a standard ProMaster van with the standard door.
  4. Nothing is confirmed nor is ordered for 2019 from my contact. I want to know where you got your information from.
  5. I think it's 8385 onwards. Also today buses 8449 and 8450 were spotted on two of the 47 branches. 8449 on 47H and 8450 on 47C.
  6. I'm noticing a trend here. How is a transit system supposed to grow if they keep cutting service? Oh right, I forgot. It's YRT. The contractors aren't getting paid so let's cut service. And they wonder why ridership is down. And it appears to me as if, once again, most of the cuts affect the North division.

I'd need to get a fleet list to confirm this.

    Transit Windsor

    Bernie, did the rep say where it was going next after Windsor?

    Transit Windsor

    Beautiful. Thanks Bernie. I'm planning to head there on Friday and hopefully 7300 is out.

    Transit Windsor

    It's the one built for SEPTA. If one of the Windsor guys can get the full VIN, that would be much appreciated.

    When? And should I make a trip there soon? It appears to be the SEPTA spec artic, which would be a hybrid.
  12. Is Exo Haut-Saint-Laurent using an actual bus (Autobus Dufresne cutaway) or are they continuing to use the minivan?
  13. The USB chargers are on the ceiling of the buses. Only the new XN60s have the USB chargers under the seats.
  14. If possible, may I request some of the Exo properties? Or do they use a different data feed?
  15. Out of curiosity, does Vallee Richelieu still run RTSes?
  16. @1604, has HSR given you the recent data feed? I ask because one of our Grande West Vicinity CNGs (1841) has been tracking as one of the ARBOC buses (1020) since it entered service on December 19th. Is it possible to switch it over manually? I figured I'd let you know this so there's no confusion.
  17. I got the body right at least.
  18. 8810 appears to be a Goshen Impulse body. Interesting they bought that.
  19. I think every bus ordered from 2017 onwards will have them, even the Vicinitys apparently.
  20. There were a couple buses parked in Mississauga at, I believe, City View. That is most definitely an ex Mississauga D60LFR, as evidenced by the grey skirts and the vent slot on the left side of the destination sign. I also noticed that Peterborough Transit's Twitter handle is tagged in the tweet. This means it probably is going to be a Peterborough Transit bus.
  21. That'll be interesting but at the same time, it'll be welcome.
  22. No it's not. 7029-18 is a February 2018 build. I got the VIN last time I was there.
  23. As far as I know, they are. They ordinarily run on the I-94 express route Monday to Friday.
