  1. The city can't sole source a specific manufacturer. If and when there is a decision to purchase more articulated buses, and Ottawa chooses not to go through the Metrolinx Transit Procurement like they did for 40 foot LFS buses then it will go to RFP. May the best company win.
  2. I am not at all against this discussion. I am simply suggesting that we add a subforum for these type of topics because it's not directly related to Public Transit. The fact that you modified your topic title to add the words "Old OC Shelters" after I made my original comment right there shows that you agreed with me. Moderators were contacted for this - I'll make sure to mention it from now on.
  3. Sorry how does this topic relate to public transit? No left turn and neighborhood watch signs??? This forum is for "Transit Discussion in the Greater Ottawa-Gatineau Metropolitan Area". I would recommend asking the mods for a sub-forum for this topic and that other "crosswalk" one.

    At the risk of going off topic..... I don’t understand the reason behind Classic Alliance Motorcoach. Leduc routinely provides buses from their own fleet to them. In not an accountant but there must be a financial reason for keeping them separate rather than rolling them all into one and having an east and west garage.
  5. Can't say I am too crazy about the styling at the front of the bus.

    Spotted a white MCI J4500 Demo running on the Transitway eastbound at Tunney’s. I believe it’s running for Leduc / Classic Motorcoach on the Carleton Place run.
  7. From what I can find, C-GFCH is a new aircraft to Air Canada. It wasn't a transfer from mainline to Rouge. MSN 3160 ex-Interjet.

    Was 6642 done in house or did they farm out the work?
  10. Glad to hear a website refresh is on the way. It could have used one years ago. I guess I won't need my 14.4bps modem and Netscape navigator browser anymore 😉

    Is that bus 901? It thought it was a different bus from the former Delaney fleet. I have seen it several times but they have changed the fleet number which is now only visible from the passenger side which I keep missing due to the small font.
  12. So is your quote as I removed my post.

    Bizarre spotting this morning at 11:30 AM. 4617 going westbound on the 401 in Brockville which is in the opposite direction of Ottawa. Still had the plastic wrap at the front and signed up "10 Rideau".

    Do you mind if I ask where you are getting your information? The articles on your website all say something like "Source : City of Ottawa" but you don't provide the original link to the City of Ottawa website or the name of your actual source. If you're just going to copy / paste the news releases, the least you can do is post a link to the source material.
