  1. Similar to the GM fleet reminiscing, I created this thread to share the memories and photos of your experience with the TTC's non-GM Fishbowl fleet prior to 2002 such as Classics, Flyers, New Flyers, Orions (I, II, III, V, VI and pre-refurbished VII), and NovaBUS RTS. If anyone has photos prior to December 31, 2016, feel free to post your old photos from old shoe boxes, slides, even library microfiche or whatever is there. Just don't claim that they are your own if they are not. The following photos are sampled below from my collection: Thanks to @Grapejuice for this
  2. Fianally got pics of the mystery bus in Winnipeg. They are putting this bus through lots of testing!!... i think they might me simulating the route 47 Transcona to test it. Sorry for bad quality!! D40LFX? .... D40XR?
  3. The fleet and serial numbers of the four battery electric buses are known: 994 NEW FLYER XE40 2014 2FYB8FJ09DC043308 995 NEW FLYER XE40 2014 2FYB8FJ00DC043309 996 NEW FLYER XE40 2014 2FYB8FJ07DC043310 997 NEW FLYER XE40 2014 2FYB8FJ09DC043311
  4. Created On April 20th 2020 As A General Discussion For SCT. Someone List Active SCT Buses Please?
  5. The OCTA and its articles are in a serious need for updates because the fleet info is incomplete particularly because there are shuttle buses used for OCTA ACCESS Service that are not in the fleet. I have lived in Orange County, California for almost my entire life and this is the bus system where I had my first bus rides in 2015! The following details that must be added to the OCTA and its articles are: The OCTA was established in 1991 from the Orange County Transit District OCTA units 8501-8599 are 2014-2015 Glaval Buses built on a Ford F-450 Chassis OCTA units 8601-8700 series are 201
  6. I've been on majhost.com for a few weeks now and it's time for everyone to view my transit photos. PHOTO STATS AS OF 2019-12-14 DRT: 30 EuroTransit: 18 Mi-Way: 26 Brampton/Zum: 12 GO Transit: 206 St. John's Metrobus: 1 TTC: 1,089 YRT/Viva: 65 SFMTA: 24 Golden Gate Transit: 4 LACMTA: 6 Barrie Transit: 4 Stratford Transit: 2 Niagara Transit: 1 St. Catharines Transit: 0 Other Niagara Region Transit Systems: 3 Helsinki Regional Transit Authority: 21 Miami-Dade Transit: 7 Other: 5 Total: 1,530 I'll update my photo gallery whenever I can (usually
  7. Ok so due to U.S. China relations gone sour, the U.S. is planning on banning BYD (build your dreams) and the China Rolling Stock Corporation away from U.S. soil and of course to prevent them from getting their hands all over federal funding I think this is a good thing what about you ?
  8. I’ve grown up in the Bay Area and nearly every part of it around me has its government run transit company operate Gillig buses except San Francisco’s Muni and the same thing goes for like Sacramento and Monterey but yeah I get the fact that the same transit companies use articulated buses from new flyer but I’m talking 40 foot buses so why is it that most california transit companies operate Gillig?
  9. Hello all, Was scrolling around and didn't find a forum for this. (correct and/or redirect me if i'm wrong, and don't get TOOOOO mad) Does anyone know when these buses will be deployed? Thanks TTC9432
  10. 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 nex
  11. This content additions page is for all information that is yet to be added into Omnitrans wiki articles as well as information relevant to that bus system. The following information that needs to be added is: Units 131-141 are retired since one of those units didn't appear on the Transsee bus tracker website for Omnitrans, and I didn't see them in service as of last year. The order of 2016 New Flyer XN40s likely caused the retirement of these 2001 model New Flyer C40LFs. 2012 and 2014 New Flyer XN40s from Omnitrans have Voith D864.5 transmissions instead of Allison Transmission, as seen in
  12. Detroit Diesel 6V92TA claimed that the 9700s and 9800s were retired, but they're still here! I saw units 9707 and 9816 near the layover at route 94 as training buses. Revert this edit because the New Flyer XN40s and BYDs haven't arrived yet, as the first units will arrive soon.
  13. This content additions page includes the following info that is to be added to Los Angeles Metro Bus and Rail articles, the LACMTA diesel Orions, as well as the former SCRTD. The LACMTA articles are in need for a serious update as it lacks the Metro Rail fleet roster. The following info that needs to be added are: LACMTA units 5300-5414 VINs are to be linked to New Flyer's 2000 model C40LF 'Y' VINs article LACMTA units 5415-5522 VINs are to be linked to New Flyer's 2001 model C40LF '1' VINs article LACMTA units 7980-7999 have been retired as of September 2017, but they still remain in LA
  14. These are the latest additions that need to be updated on TARTA's wiki articles: - Units 3901-3913 (Ex-Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority 2300s) are 2003 New Flyer D40LF buses - Units 500-537 have Allison B300R 5-speed transmissions, Luminator Horizon signs, and American Seating 6468 seats - TARTA's 2001 Nova Bus LFS vehicles have Allison Transmission B400Rs, Luminator Horizon signs, and American Seating 6468 seats - The standard 2012 Gillig BRT diesels from TARTA have Allison Transmission B400Rs and Luminator Horizon signs - An upcoming order of 11 buses are to be delivered i
  15. More than half of the fleet’s 49 vehicles are ready for retirement after ten year’s service. 13 New XDE40s are ready to replace the oldest of those. Later on? Electric buses will be coming, by the sound of it. Source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/express/wp/2015/05/13/new-dc-circulator-buses-will-have-usb-ports-and-better-air-conditioning/ "In the long run, the DC Circulator will transition to fully electric buses, Handsfield says. They are more expensive, but they make up their cost in fuel savings, he says. “They are better for the environment and quiet enough that you can hear what the
  16. The 2006-2007 New Flyer C40LFRs from the OCTA, fleet numbers 5501-5674 and 7501-7529, are missing from the wiki, since no one had created a page yet for the C Gas Plus LFRs that were built in September 2006-January 2008. I have provided some VINs for these vehicles: 5510, built May 2007: 5FYC5FP157C031320 7529, the very first Cummins Westport ISL-G powered LFR, built May 2007: 5FYC5FB167C031723 5667, built December 2007: 5FYC5FP167C032265 All OCTA C Gas Plus powered LFRs have been repowered with Cummins Westport ISL-G engines in 2013-2016, and they are currently being repainted in two
  17. I got an email from Translink today (after I complained about how slow the NovaBus hybrids were on the 144) and I got this reply/confirmation that Translink's new order of NFI XN40s will be operating out of Hamilton Transit Centre, so Burnaby/New Westminster bus watchers keep your eyes peeled.
  18. See in "G" on Monday, March 30th, 2015... I was told it was a "pilot" delivery. As in, Winnipeg Transit will have it for a few weeks to look at, examine, and drive around, before it goes back to NewFlyer with feedback intended to smooth the delivery of the main part of the order.. Note that at this point the unit lacks the standard stripe decals. There was also no farebox inside when I looked. (I forgot to check if it had a radio). I was also told that the 2015 deliver of XD40's would be numbered 831-888.
  19. I have a question: were there any U.S. transit agencies who ran their Orion I's, V's and/or New Flyers with the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and Voith transmission? This was the powertrain of choice in Canada for the following: YORK REGION TRANSIT (MARKHAM TRANSIT) (MARKHAM, ON) 2033-2036 - 1988 Orion I 01.508 2044-2047 - 1989 MCI Classic TC40-102N 2048-2052 - 1990 MCI Classic TC40-102A 2053-2054 - 1991 Orion V 05.501 YORK REGION TRANSIT (RICHMOND HILL TRANSIT) (RICHMOND HILL, ON) 511-524 - 1989 New Flyer D40 (T-drive) (renumbered 8911-8924 by YRT) YORK REGION TRANSIT (EX-GO TRANSIT) 1130-

  21. What is your favourite model of bus? Why is it your favourite? Why isn't it your favourite? Comment below!
  22. I have some thoughts about the Flyer D900 series of buses. Mainly, about their engines: I would think the mega-rare Cummins VTB903 diesel engine was the only hi-power option for the USA-spec buses until the 6V92TA was made available and when the D900 was being phased out in favor of the D901, since unlike the GMC RTS II Series 03 and the Grumman Flxible 870, the Detroit Diesel 8V71 engine was not cataloged (the lo-power 6V71 was, though). I would think the VTB903 was not available in Canada given that country's preference toward the 6V71N Detroit Diesel. ~Ben

  24. Nova won this one. Exciting to me to see the province invest so heavily in hybrid buses! Montreal will get 203 of the 509 buses. Longueuil will get 100 and Laval 77. The other transit agencies involved in the purchase are Quebec City, Lévis, Gatineau, Trois Rivières, Sherbrooke and Saguenay.
