  1. From the environment, transportation and public safety standing committee meeting on january 20th


    "The town of amherstburg is having conversation around public transit. A proposal from the city of windsor was provided to the town of amherstburg and was fully supported by their council. A public consultation was held and the city of windsor provided a proposal relating to routing, options and alternative route modifications."

    "A proposal has been provided to the town of tecumseh. Their current contract expires and we look forward to furthur communication with them to keep the regional aspect moving."

  2. well, 11 2020 novas in service today in the city. 615(a hybrid) on the 42 heading down the highway to leamington....fail.  And also I seen 425 today with a fresh coat of paint in the smaller 3 inch stripes, looks good! Proof that its gonna stick around for a while longer!

  3. Ok so i just seen it and it is indeed bus number 4.  Idk if something happened to the other bus 4 or what but they did have 2 fords bus 3 and 4 because the bus numbers were in 2 different places.

  4. No bus 4 is identical to bus 3 with the ford front end and the bus numbers(3 and 4) are in different places.  This is a totally different bus. Im almost willing to say this is bus 5.  Im gonna check after work to see the bus number and get more pics.

    Someone in a facebook group said that the 1901 exist and posted a picture which i won't put here since i might not have his permission to do it. From what i heard we probably have 1801 then 1901 to 1962 or 1963 and not 1964.

    You should check the wiki before making posts like this. All the information is there if you were not aware, many systems are updated fairly frequently.
    Here is RTCs wiki:   https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Réseau_de_transport_de_la_Capitale#Current

  6. So someone had put on the wiki for the new buses that theyre replacing the buses listed in the report. im going to remove that because there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes and things can change at any given moment. When buses are actually retired from this order and it is confirmed what buses are indeed replaced by this order of buses, I will put it on the wiki. most of the buses listed in that report have been retired for a few years now. Retired in a report made for a group of individuals who do not have a good grasp of how a system is run is very different than reality.

  7. Many of those inveros were already retired with the 2018 novas and have been sitting at the east wall where 560 should be as well, being used for parts etc im sure. the only inveros left active after the 2018 order are 671, 677 and 683. im sure by decommissioning they mean to sell off the retired buses and removing them from the property, whether resold or sold as scrap. 560 has been a parts donor for a while now(by mistake of someone at the garage and they had to go with it).  the other 3 novas listed im guessing are the worst of the 05s. I bet after the inveros are off property you will see many orion VIIs sidelined at that retirement wall and used for parts for the im guessing handful remaining VIIs at that point. There are still some VIIs with no work done to them in the 6 inch stripes, those should be first to go along with the 3 inveros as well as the listed novas that are currently in service.

    I will see if I can find out any more info on this and keep you posted.

    Saw 2 Novas going westbound on Highway 401 and Neilson Rd. In east Toronto.  The lead bus was 2042 but I couldn’t get the fleet number for the tail bus.  Methinks they’ll be in service in a week or so.

    Are these 40ft novas?

    Well the buses may need different paint since you need to know what region the bus is from or going to.  But the fare structure and route management would be centralized. 

    Not necessarily. A good example is NYC or a state/provincial agency such as NJ transit and BC transit
