  1. either way, it means one less Blue Bird
  2. tender posted today for one new transit low floor bus, closing on September 4th
  3. for some reason the " 2 DOWNTOWN" is a default setting if the buses are running ahead of schedule
  4. the NPC units have Green Line-AEROCAR in the evening instead of the QUEENSTON one, does anyone know what time they cut off at the Aerocar?
  5. the NFT and NPC units will be stored at their respective facilities until the NFT garage opens, and the NPC ones will presumably get parked in their garage when the Orions go
  6. the combined WEGO/ NFT/GO Transit facility is in the final design phase and they're hoping to have it open winter 2014-15, and NFT's WEGO units are being parked in their compound in the meantime, with them presumably storing some inside the present facility in the winter; the NPC ones are at Rapidsview
  7. they've still got all but one of the 27 buses at the Rapidsview lot and Clever Devices doesn't seem to know what they're doing with the ITS; and supposed the Orions will be kept as backups edit: the maps are up with the stops and it says "WEGO operates daily from as early as 9am to as late as 1am April through October and a modified schedule will be in place November through March"...no frequencies mentioned but I believe it will be every 15 minutes
  8. according to the 2012 Welland Capital Budget, one replacement bus has been budgeted for in 2012, so I'm guessing either another Eldorado or an XD35
  9. the latest WEGO news is that the system will have a "soft launch" on August 20th, and also on the NF website under public notices and on the July 24th council meeting agenda there is info relating to the size and other elements of the new WEGO/NFT/ GO garage going out on Kalar Road with a scheduled completion date of 2014
  10. NPC unit-another telltale sign to look for: NPC buses have the plates on the bumper, NFT units have it up closer to the front window
  11. D40LFR 1146 was on the 60/65 route last Monday and it's sign read "Shuttle"

    Sarnia Transit

    on the City of Sarnia website under the draft capital budget for 2012 it lists two replacement accessible buses with the budgeted amount of $820,000-does anyone know more about this?
  13. it was along the Parkway coming back from I assume Queenston Heights and the driver and trainer had NPC uniforms; they both got off at Table Rock
  14. one of the NPC Novas went past the Blue Line I was on yesterday, the number decals aren't on them, but the paper in the front window of the one artic had the number 9004, so I'm assuming the NPC buses have different fleet numbers than the city-owned ones
  15. could one of the wiki guys make an update to the retired list for NFT: - 8159 was x-San Diego MTS 917, it retained the SD livery but the red stripe was painted blue like 8155,8156,8160 and 8173 -x-San Diego units 8174( SD 909) and 8175(SD 914) were the only ones that were repainted into the old NT striped livery thanks

    Orillia Transit

    there's an article on the Orillia Packet and Times website from about a month ago regarding fares and it has a photo of XD40 1220 website : www.orilliapacket.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=3562684
  17. could one of the Wiki editors edit the delivery date for 2195, NFT took possession of it on April 4, 2012; and also i just heard they will be upgrading the evening service for the Falls Shuttle starting this Friday( convenient timing) so that Friday/Saturday/Sunday it will run until 1am and Monday-Thursday it will run until 11:00pm, and starting June 29th and until the WEGO starts all Falls Shuttle lines will go until at least 7 days a week( Source: last night's Niagara Falls City Council meeting) ...look for the updated schedules on the city website anytime now
  18. SCT is part of the Metrolinx consortium, does anyone know when the delivery date for their units will be?
  19. according to the driver I talked to, no, he says they don't need them in Welland
  20. it's still unknown if the WEGO buses will be on the GO shuttles or the parking lot shuttles
  21. Welland's 1151 also has a bike rack now
  22. the WEGO units have numbers now, the 40-footers are in the 5300 series and the 60-footers are in the 5200 series
  23. the Falls Shuttle will be running in the interim, but it's been cut back to an 11pm finish for some dumb reason; the schedule is on the city website, and the iRide cards are valid on it and on the subject of the replacement bus I can't see them going with anything other than Nova, it wouldn't make sense to train every person on the property for one Xcelsior( although I wouldn't mind seeing one in NFT colours)
  24. the WEGO buses will be used on a special shuttle service between different parking lots and the Falls area next Friday for the Wallenda walk, after that they'll sit until the latest start date of August 20th.. also the NF capital budget for 2012 has approved one replacement 40' bus and one replacement Chair-a-van
  25. all WEGO units parked at Rapidsview for the time being undergoing ITS installation....just so anyone doesn't get shocked seeing an empty NFT lot
