  1. Former Cardinal/First Student #2742 is for sale on Kijiji. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-rv-motorhome/edmonton/ihc-diesel-pusher/1522727197 Photos for when the listing goes down.
  2. Former Willco #515 is on the selling block once again. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-rv-motorhome/edmonton/skoolie-school-bus/1525438012 Photos attached are from the listing.
  3. I would prefer it be a Saturday. On a different train of thought - how come these charters are always planned for March? I feel like it'd be much nicer to have one in May or June when the Calgary scenery looks much more appealing, roads are cleaner, and the weather is much warmer. Just my opinion.
  4. Spotted 3458 (2003-04 BlueBird International) deadheading on Stoney Trail the other day.
  5. Great to hear it's still active! That one, being a 2003 year, might very well be the oldest unit still active in their fleet...
  6. First has brought in some 72 passenger IC CEs from Idaho. Spotted 15-20 units at the Main Yard, including the following: 100182 (pictured below) 102377 110575 (pictured below) 110578 110583 All units have an emergency exit door on the left side, and at least one of them (could not see the fleet number) had an exterior camera on the driver's side. Other observations: First still occupies the Main Yard, despite there having been a "For Sale" sign outside of it last year; 2580 is in the process of being parted out and has been sitting in the same spot for over a year now; I did not see a single transit-style bus, so looks like all those 12122* and 13227* Thomas EFs and the IC REs have been transferred elsewhere.
  7. I was not aware that Southland picked up the Strathcona Tweedsmuir routes this year. Knowing that now, I wouldn't be surprised if 2584 simply stays in its current colors, given the past use of white and black units for those routes by First.
  8. Great find! Wonder if they will repaint 2584 into school bus yellow.
  9. 7982 was on a Route 10 block out of VP today, while 7984 is currently on a VP-based Route 24 block.
  10. 704 is now listed on Kijiji. It's a 36 passenger unit manufactured in July 2000. Photos for when the listing goes down. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-heavy-trucks/calgary/super-clean-school-buses/1513299046
  11. Block details for the Fall signup are now available on Transit 55.

  13. Thanks for the article, I was not aware of this. Even moreso than before, this makes me wish Cardinal didn't get taken over.
  14. I noticed this as well recently, but have not had the time to checkout their Main Yards. Also interesting to note that the most recent Google Streetview pictures from August 2019 show a "For Sale" sign outside their Main Yard.
