  1. the Orion V's don't, since they're not likely to see city service ever again( NFT is going 100% accessible in September)
  2. I was at NFT several hours ago and they're still waiting on 1396.....several other features on these buses are rear destination signs and new-style front doors( same as on the WEGO Novas). Mechanic said it will be at least 3 weeks before they enter service(they also need the Clever equipment).
  3. forgot to mention there's a new Welltrans ARBOC on property ,#213, arrived roughly the same time 1154 did
  4. sweet, rather see a new Nova on my route than an old boxcar like 2470

    Transit Windsor

    4 XD40 units this year and four next year
  6. it may be a while before 1154 makes it out, apparently WT is having problems just keeping up with the repairs on the Blue Turds and the new one has barely been touched
  7. 5204 has been like that since they got it
  8. just saw the 2013 Capital Budget for Welland, they've budgeted for one 40' bus and one Welltrans bus for this year
  9. does anyone know what city Thorold got its RTS unit from?
  10. although they are still listed as active on the Wiki, 1998 Orion units 64798-64898 are listed with six other Orions and a 1998 Nova on an RFP on the City of Barrie website for disposal/sale
  11. It'll be a great day when they're all retired
  12. 8100-series double deckers are now serving route 12, counted 4 of them-8110,8116, and 2 others- at the NF bus terminal Wednesday night
  13. oddball sighting today... one of the ex-Lynx Orion units(didn't get close enough to see the number) on the normally-accessible route 6
  14. Red Line new outbound routing effective May 16th.... outbound from Table Rock, north on Niagara Parkway-Clifton Hill-Victoria-Clark-Robinson-Fallsview-Murray-Stanley to Lundy's Lane....no inbound changes....... New Stops Outbound: Oneida Lane and Clifton Hill, Old Stone Inn, Imax Theatre, Margaritaville, Best Western....2013 season schedule and map to be posted on Wego website and day now( note : this info was obtained from a public map available now at the NFT front office); also 2369 is at the body shop following a sideswipe this past Monday on Marineland Parkway which resulted in the bumper being torn off and damage to the left rear of the bus
  15. Chair-a-Van news: Newest unit 1225 is painted and in service, quite hard to miss the "niagarafalls" in bright green letters across the hood, also unit 2215 has been deplated and is sitting in the back corner of the yard presumed off the road
  16. have been told that the XD35 may be arriving in several weeks
  17. speaking of Eldorados, 2985 is at MTB having its skirts repainted due to flaking paint, all four will be going eventually
  18. newest Chair-A-Van delivered Monday morning, currently sitting outside with the 40' WEGO buses
  19. My sincerest condolences to Constable Kovach's family and the Guelph Police Service on this awful and horrific event.
  20. odd roadcall due to a bus shortage yesterday: high-floor Orion V 2062 on route 14 at 2:30pm, driver said it was his third bus for the day
  21. newest bus 2195 seems to be M.I.A., has anyone seen it? last time I saw it was 2 weeks before Christmas
  22. just another wiki addition if possible, there's another Chair a van on property, unit 1024, a 2010 Ford E-450/ Glaval, delivered in July 2010, and it carries the new NFT waterfall livery
  23. Chair a Van is a 2013 Chevrolet G4500/Goshen GC-II, obtained through Crestline Coach
  24. just a request, could of the wiki guys update the NFT page to include the Novas and the chair a van that are on order? Thanks. Specs on the Novas- assumed fleet numbers 2396-2397, Cummins ISL9 engine, Voith D864.5 transmission, delivery date June 2012
