According to page 153 on the December 14, 2017 Board Meeting report, there is a project titled "2019 Conventional bus expansion" under the 2018 New Capital Program that highlights the replacement of 25 High Floor Buses with 32 double-decker Low Floor buses. What we DON'T KNOW at this moment: 1) Destination sign 2) Seats (I know they went with Lazzerini but I forgot which type). 3) Height and configurations (including the engine, doors, seating arrangement) 4) Which Orions will be replaced What we DO know at this moment: 1) Alexander Dennis will be providing the double deckers (since they're the only successful makers in North America thus far) 2) Colour scheme 3) Transit Centre (besides RTC because a chunk of them are going there for sure.) 4) Route specifics (aside from 601/555 linegroup)
I know that #643 was initially preserved, but then scrapped in 2011. Have any of these buses been preserved? Are there any at museums? Has the MTHA held on to any of these? I remember these buses from when I was a little kid. They ran on the #21 Crestview, plus a few routes out of Charleswood.
