  1. 8810 appears to be a Goshen Impulse body. Interesting they bought that.
  2. I think every bus ordered from 2017 onwards will have them, even the Vicinitys apparently.
  3. 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.
  4. That'll be interesting but at the same time, it'll be welcome.
  5. No it's not. 7029-18 is a February 2018 build. I got the VIN last time I was there.
  6. As far as I know, they are. They ordinarily run on the I-94 express route Monday to Friday.
  7. https://www.burlingtontransit.ca/en/news-and-alerts/route-changes.aspx Here are the new changes as of November 4. I must say, I'm impressed. They're removing the nonsensical interlines of routes 5 and 80 and 6 and 11, put route 12 back to 30 minute frequencies and shifting the schedules of routes 11, 21, 25, 81 and 83 to accommodate train connections. This will help especially during the peak periods. I have also noticed that the ARBOCs are rarely used now. This doesn't surprise me as there's more than enough of the Vicinitys to cover the smaller ridership routes.
  8. It would be a missed opportunity to not put a maple leaf in the middle of the white space.
  9. It was an order of 137. It's almost as if they had no intention of ordering the Vicinitys past the two year trial. I have a feeling that the ones they had will be sold off to other places.
  10. It seems as though they had no intention of keeping the Vicinitys past the two year lease. The giant ARBOC shuttle order further sealed it.
  11. Until I hear OFFICIAL word from HSR regarding the status of both buses, they're not retired as yet. Do not change the Wiki page until we get official word.

    Once again, stop posting your inane rants. Stay on topic.
  13. So XD60s for Conventional service, LFS Artic for VIVA. Interesting how they went with a split order.
  14. Can you word this for someone who doesn't speak in emojis? Like....perhaps...normal people who post here?

    And you felt you had to tell us all of this?
  16. Since it is under warranty, it's highly likely that it will come back. They'll probably have to build a new tail section for it since the one that's on it at present is pretty much destroyed.
  17. It was leased from NovaBus in exchange for either 0559 or 0660 which are being refurbished offsite.

    Transit Windsor

    As far as I know, they're still in service. They had their AVL devices taken out so they use them primarily on school trippers now.
  19. I can see the smaller systems like Niagara-on-the-Lake, Pelham and uLinc taking the 600 series routes.
  20. They're not here yet. It'll probably be December before you see one in service. Still no word on the fleet numbers as yet.

    I think it basically goes to any bus that can get its engine started. I've noticed as late Orion VIIs being used there.
