  2. 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 32 High Floor Buses with 32 double-decker Low Floor buses. What we DON'T KNOW at this moment: 1) Transit Centre (besides RTC because a chunk of them are going there for sure.) 2) Route specifics (aside from 601/555 linegroup) 3) Destination sign 4) Colour scheme 5) Seats 6) Height and configurations (including the engine, doors, seating arrangement) 7) Which Orions will be replaced ((Please no speculation on any of the above until the RFP comes out)) 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)
  3. Does anyone have any audio / video recordings of this bus? I found one somewhere on the CPTDB in a thread which someone replied "OC Transpo 8651 on route 95, recorded February 2002." But I can't find it any where now .
  4. 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 2018-06-01 DRT: 29 EuroTransit: 18 Mi-Way: 25 Brampton/Zum: 12 GO Transit: 193 St. John's Metrobus: 1 TTC: 1,046 YRT/Viva: 64 SFMTA: 24 Golden Gate Transit: 4 LACMTA: 6 Barrie Transit: 2 Stratford Transit: 2 Niagara Transit: 0 St. Catharines Transit: 0 Other Niagara Region Transit Systems: 2 Helsinki Regional Transit Authority: 21 Other: 3 Total: 1,457 I'll update my photo gallery whenever I can (usually every 2 weeks) Oh yeah, please comment on my photos 'cuz they don't come with captions for each one. Cheers! (Knocking glasses together) SORRY: Majhost is down for maintenance
  5. 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 the wiki article, which is inaccurate. I found out that these buses' dashboards have Voith shift selectors, apart from the fact some of the Omnitrans XN40s sound differently from the OCTA XN40s. Units 1321-1333 have 6 speed Allison Transmission B400Rs Units 153-154 are built in October 2003; units 158-172 are built in November 2003 Units 101-103, and 105-121 are built in January 2001 Units 175-187 and 198 are built in May 2005; units 193-197 are built in June 2005 Units 1201-1210 are built in June 2009; units 1220-1227 are built in July 2009 Some of the 2011 New Flyer C40LFRs have 6-speed Allison Transmission B400Rs; 1233 is one of these buses with an Allison Transmission The 2001, 2003, 2005 New Flyer C40LFs, and 2009 New Flyer C40LFRs have TwinVision/Digital Recorders Amber LED signs. Note that the TwinVision brand destination sign controllers may either have the Digital Recorders logo or the Twinvision logo on buses made before 2007. Units 171 and 175-198 have 39 American Seating Innovator 850 padded fabric seats Some of the 2003 New Flyer C40LFs have 33 American Seating Innovator 850 padded fabric seats and 3 American Seating Vision padded fabric seats in order to accommodate the Q-Pods wheelchair securement system and one wheelchair securement station. These buses originally had 39 seats. Omnitrans' New Flyer XN40s have 34 American Seating Vision padded fabric seats. Some of these buses' VINs are missing, which can be confirmed if you use AutoCheck.com by using one of the VINs closest to that particular bus and entering the next VIN for that unit. Add Omnitrans route 208, 215, and 290. The rest of the routes that need to be changed are found in the latest Omnitrans bus book for January 2018 by downloading a PDF copy from their website or obtaining a physical copy by riding on Omnitrans buses. Unit 640/1640 was built in November 1992 1997 Neoplan AN440A CNG buses were built from May to August 1997 Omnitrans' 1996 Orion Vs were built from December 1996 to January 1997. These buses had Cummins L10G engines and ZF 4HP590 transmissions instead of the Cummins C8.3G and ZF 4HP592 powertrain as listed in the wiki articles.

    Clallam Transit - Port Angeles, WA)

    Apparently Clallam Transit got some new Hybrid mini buses according to this article and I wonder if #629 is one of them in the attached image....: http://www.clallamtransit.com/news.html . I would guess 629 is one of them as there are photos of #624 in the above link. Also, during my recently visit to Port Angeles last month, I found some Gillig Low Floors numbered 611 up to 615 which are not listed on the Wiki. I visited Port Angeles back in September of 2012 as well and did not see any Gilligs numbered higher than #608 which is also the highest listed on the Wiki page. So if anyone has any more information, it would be greatly appreciated. http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Clallam_Transit
  8. Our neighbor and friend Terry Boorman in Regina SK, owns former Moose Jaw Transit number 21, an Orion One. He urgently requires a transmission dipstick, so he can continue to run this classic bus, in his business as a party bus! Please reply 306-502-5030. Two images of this bus - in the past, when it was operating in MJT, and present day use as party bus in Regina!
  9. Came across this on Reddit. This was in Texas.

    Des Moines (DART)

    I thought it was time Des Moines had its own topic. (Yet another system called DART!) The system is quite interesting to me, as it includes Orion buses and Xcelsior hybrids, in addition to Gilligs. Its also a growing TA and I like the livery. Photos of Des Moines DART are available from the Transit Camera: http://www.flickr.co...157625701556200 The following is a current article from businessrecord.com http://www.businessr...t/175/837/62076 D.M. area bus ridership up 15 percent BY KYLE OPPENHUIZEN, Staff Writer Wednesday, January 29, 2014 2:59 PM Ridership on Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART) buses was up 15 percent year-over-year in December, officials announced Tuesday. December ridership totaled 347,213 passengers. The increase is significant because December is the first month for which year-over-year comparisons can be made after DART added or changed a number of routes in November 2012. The fastest growing route has been the new Route 60 loop between Ingersoll Ave. and University Ave. that goes through downtown. It grew from 15,763 riders in December of 2012 to 26,354 riders in December of 2013, a 67 percent increase. DART would like to make that route into a bus rapid transit, or rail-like bus service line, in the future. DART officials are keeping a close eye on ridership numbers now that there are direct year-over-year comparisons with the new and changed routes, a DART spokesman told the Business Record earlier this month. In addition to the route changes, DART opened its $21 million Central Station in November of 2012; added frequency and later hours to some routes and has launched a beta version of a trip planner. Riders can now also search for public transit directions using Google Maps and Bing Maps. "The region's investment in public transit is paying off," said Steve Van Oort, Polk County supervisor and chairman of the DART Commission.
  11. Could you please verify all five of these VIN numbers for these Orion I's that were operated by Clallam Transit (Port Angeles, WA)? 581 (1984 Orion I 01.504): 2B1129277E6894990 (if 6V71N engine) or 2B1129776E6894990 (if 6V92TA engine) 582 (1984 Orion I 01.504): 2B1129273E6895991 (if 6V71N engine) or 2B1129772E6895991 (if 6V92TA engine) 583 (1990 Orion I 01.507): 2B1139779L6002595 584 (1992 Orion I 01.508): 2B1169777N6003125 585 (1992 Orion I 01.508): 2B1169779N6003126 Thank you, Ben
  12. http://www.angelfire.com/ca/TORONTO/builders/orion.html If you gloss over this page (link above), Orion built three types of seating configurations for its two bus lengths (30' and 35'): transit, coach (suburban) and airporter, for a total of six configurations (this would increase to nine in 1984, when the 40' length showed up). The transit and airporter configurations had both front and back doors, but most examples of the coach configuration did not. A few exceptions to the rule did exist: transit-style buses without back doors were built for Beaver Bus Lines of Winnipeg, MB in 1985, 1988 and 1990, and for Transport of Rockland County of Pomona, NY in 1988; while CDTA of Albany, NY purchased some coach-style buses with back doors. The airport versions of the model 01.506 (which replaced the 01.504 in 1982) were built for Shortway Lines (Philadelphia International Airport) and Leaseco (San Francisco International Airport). Both orders used the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine and Allison HT747 transmission. Is it true Orion did not assign a specific model number to the airport seating configurations (unlike the transit and coach configurations)? Transit bus models: 01.501 = 30 foot, no air conditioning 01.502 = 30 foot, air conditioning (originally designated USA specs when first brought over here in 1978, a year before the near-identical TMC CityCruiser showed up) 01.504 = 35 foot 01.507 = 35 foot (replaced 01.504 in 1984) 01.508 = 40 foot Suburban bus models (all front-facing seats and no back door): 01.503 = 30 foot 01.505 = 35 foot 01.510 = 35 foot (replaced 01.505) 01.509 = 40 foot Airport bus models: 01.506 = 35 foot ~Ben
  13. Does anyone know exactly all of the Rockwell front and rear axles that were used in the Orion I bus in all years 1976-1993? This is information I'm hoping to get added to this page in the future: http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Orion_Bus_Industries_%27Orion_I%27 Older Orion I brochures (and my 1981 TMC City Cruiser brochure) list the following: Front: model FF931, 12,000 lbs. GAWR Rear: model R143, 23,000 lbs. GAWR From the 1983 Orion brochure that I have: Front: model FF932, 13,400 lbs. GAWR Rear: model R143, 23,000 lbs. GAWR But in 1984, the 35' and 40' buses (the latter of which was introduced that year) went for higher-rated axles. Front: model FG943 or 17100, 14,600 lbs. GAWR Rear: model 59742, 25,000 lbs. GAWR The 30-foot models also had a newer front axle that year in model FF942 (13,200 lbs. GAWR) but retained the R143 rear axle. In 1988, Rockwell introduced these new rear axles: 30 foot buses: model RC-23-160, 23,000 lbs. GAWR (replaced R143) Buses longer than 30 feet: model 61142, 26,000 lbs. GAWR (replaced 59742) To round things up: 1976-1979 models: FF931 front / Q148 rear (34,000 lbs. GVWR) 1980-1982 models: FF931 front / R143 rear (35,000 lbs. GVWR) 1982-1983 models: FF932 front / R143 rear (36,400 lbs. GVWR) 1984-1987 models: 30 foot: FF942 front / R143 rear (36,200 lbs. GVWR) 35 and 40 foot: FG943 or 17100 front / 59742 rear (39,600 lbs. GVWR) 1988-1993 models: 30 foot: FF942 front / RC-23-160 rear (36,200 lbs. GVWR) 35 and 40 foot: 17100 front / 61142 rear (40,600 lbs. GVWR) Some questions I want to ask you all: 1. Did Orion ever catalog the Rockwell FG943 front axle (14,600 lbs. GAWR) for their 1984 I's (models 01.507 to 01.510)? 2. Did Orion ever catalog the Rockwell Q148 rear axle (22,000 lbs. GAWR) for their pre-1981 I's? Thank you very much! ~Ben
  14. This will be a tough question to answer, and here it goes: were there any Orion I's built in 1984 and 1985 that used the Voith D863 transmission behind the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine (a la AC Transit's 1984 Gillig Phantoms numbered 1469 to 1483)? They can be model 01.502 (30 ft), 01.507 (35 ft) or 01.508 (40 ft). ~Ben

  17. The Charm City Circulator or CCC is the newest system in the state of Maryland, since the Baltimore Department of Transportation established it in 2008. The first service did not begin until January 11, 2010, with the Orange Route going east-west from University of Maryland at Baltimore BioPark (west) to Hollins Market (east). The Purple Route began service on June 4, 2010, going north-south from Baltimore Penn Station (north) to Federal Hill (south). The Green Route began service on November 1, 2011, going east-west from Johns Hopkins Medical Center (east) to City Hall (west). On June 4, 2012, The Banner Route began service just in time for the 2012 Bicentennial Star Spangled Sailabration in celebration of the "War of 1812" and the writing of United States's national anthem. Service operate east-west from Inner Harbor (west) to Fort McHenry (east). In the Fall of 2011, the water taxi service, known as, the Water Taxi Harbor Connector began operation with two water routes on Patapsco River or "open bay" portion of the Inner Harbor and with one planned. The city of Baltimore's ridership downtown boomed with the system's "FREE" fare service and nearly 200,000 ridership in two years. The system has and will forever make a mark in downtown's transportation network and since it's success, more bus lines are planned that can reach outside of downtown Baltimore to connecting major tourist or transit points. The Zoo Route connecting downtown and Inner Harbor to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore in Druid Hill Park is a future plan for maybe Spring 2013, as well service corridors around Fells Point and Canton and the Westport/Greyhound Bus Terminal, which as well is possible for planning in 2013. The Charm City Circulator bus fleet contains 18 buses (31 buses) from three manufacturers: Designline Corporation (to be retired), Orion Industries, and Van Hool.
