  1. Wow...ok. It seems we have conflicting information. I’ll see what I can get. It’s smart on their part to finally be keeping spare buses. Also, I shouldn’t have said retired. I should hand said withdrawn from service, as, like you stated, they’re not being used for parts at this time.
  2. There are some prepped and ready for service. You will probably not see them until the fall, as, during the summer the need for buses is not as high. Also, none of the equipment, as far as I’m aware, is factory installed. I know the cameras are done by an outside vendor and I believe the AA system is as well. They need to install the fareboxes, PRESTO readers, Ranger units and anything else also. I’ve been told 701-709 are, in fact retired along with possibly 715, 718 and 721.
  3. More than likely needed a part or was pressed back into service. It and 615 are the only remaining DE60LFR’s. I’ll see if I can get more info.
  4. Was changed off for 1116 about 0630.
  5. Yep. Last 0500 in the fleet. Will be gone soon.
  6. It’s always nice to see awesome people out there! https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/bus-medical-emergency-1.5071024
  7. When the new XN60’s arrive is when they’ll start to be withdrawn from service. They’ll start with the worst shape ones or ones deemed needing work($$$).
  8. Last I heard from fleet is 1841, 42, 43, 44 and 45. I’ll see if I can find out about the rest.
  9. No, excluding the Vicinity’s, which are supposed to be arriving shortly.
  10. All 1700’s and all 1800’s are in service. The 1800’s that are not yet showing as in seevice should be within coming days.
  11. At the Ford dealership on Parkdale there’s a brand new Expedition(?) with C3 on the side of it. New chief vehicle?
  12. Regarding the Vicinity’s I have been told they will be numbered 1841, 1842, 1843, 1844 and 1845.
  13. I’m not sure of what the hold up was but I’ve been told to expect them mid August.
  14. It’ll be interesting to see if they have perimeter seating in the back like our 17/1800’s here in Hamilton or if they’ll have the seats facing each other.
