I have noticed that Medicine Hat Transit's wiki page is very outdated. I have already gotten an admin to update some info (eg. Marking buses as retired that have been retired for years), but it is far from current. I have made contact with MHT's fleet manager, so I have some information about all kinds of things. So far, I have received some info on when various buses were retired: ▪️#743 (2002 D40LF): August, 2017, due to an accident ▪️#746, 747 (2005 D40LFs): (see below) ▪️#748-750 (2009 D40LFRs): (see below) ▪️#751-753 (2010 D40LFRs): Still active, but will be retired when the next batch of buses come in. This will happen within 5 years. ▪️#720-725 (2009 Arbocs): (See above) ▪️#730 (a 2010 Arboc): (see above) ▪️#740-745 (excluding #743): 2015 ▪️#726-733 (excluding #[731, or whichever was destroyed]): 2015 There will be a competitive bid for who gets the contract, however the large buses will be Natural gas powered. He hinted that New Flyer has had a close relationship with the city for a long time and is likely to win the contract. What other information should I ask for? Bus #743 is currently sitting in the city storage compound, and I want to go there (with permission) and take photos of it. Iam also planning on going to various scrapyards to try and find some old buses (I think I've found some using satellite images). Wish me luck!
