  1. It’s more than likely a regular assignment due to COVID. It shows, twice, that run was assigned 1210, then changed off with an artic, and 1606, then was changed off with an artic. It’s got an artic on it tonight as well.
  2. Could have been a wrong assignment. It was changed off with 714.
  3. Normally, the 6/7/8 also gets them. Right now, though, it’s anyone’s guess as they have been running 40 foot buses due to COVID and social distancing.
  4. As for 0913, it has been retired as per Seashore_518203.
  5. Thank you for the clarification! Stay safe!
  6. They were to be used as last resort buses in case they were needed. Bus 520 used to be with them. They just recently put 520 back into service. I’m unsure as to why they put 520 back into service and not one of the 0700’s.
  7. I’ve heard the Barton buses have been packed. Social distancing makes sense as to why they’d run artics. Only one 40-foot on Barton today. REMEMBER: SATURDAY service starts March 23rd until further notice.
  8. The truck at 3 was, in fact, refurbished. The number(300169) is still the same.
  9. I hadn’t heard anything on the 0700’s that had been put into storage. Did they end up retiring them? Why bring back bus 0520 if the 07’s are still being stored?
  10. Saw it a few weeks ago. Has had it’s new blues installed. I had wondered if it was a new truck as it looked brand new. New paint makes sense. Thanks
  11. Per a text I got from one of my contacts at HSR.
  12. Does anyone know what happened to E3? They’re still using P43
  13. 1845-1849 are now in service.
  14. 615 is currently assigned to a King run.
  15. 1827 and 1828 in service That leaves 1826 which has yet to go into service.
  16. 1823 on 27/35 1820-1825 are in service.
  17. 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 I should hand said withdrawn from service, as, like you stated, they’re not being used for parts at this time.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Was changed off for 1116 about 0630.
  21. Yep. Last 0500 in the fleet. Will be gone soon.
  22. It’s always nice to see awesome people out there! https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/bus-medical-emergency-1.5071024
  23. 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($$$).
