  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 inspiration for this thread.
  2. Hello Everyone, I will be hosting a charter with a 1999 Nova Bus RTS on Sunday June 28th, 2015. The charter will be held on a CIT Vallée-du-Richelieu Nova Bus RTS, preference has been given to 600309. The charter will start and end outside of Terminus Centre-Ville on the corner of Saint-Antoine and Mansfield at the CIT Sud-Ouest Route 1 and 28 Stop and will begin at 11:30am, ending around 4:30pm. We have also planned a supper event after the charter to begin around 6:00pm and ending at 8:00pm. During the charter, we have selected some unique photo stops, as well we have been granted a tour of the Transdev Beloeil Garage. A 35-Minute Lunch Stop is planned along the Richelieu River, we suggest to pack a cold lunch as we are on a tight schedule. The photo stop just before the lunch break will be at Mail Montenach, which has various restaurants and a Super C Grocery Store where stuff can be purchased. For people who have Facebook, please join the event page to get any updates as soon as they are available, as there may be a delay between when we update the event page and post it here.

  3. Hi all, In response to the limited number of Classic and RTS buses Fredericton Transit has remaining in active service, and their alleged wish to retire many of them, I thought it would be a good (and interesting) idea to make a thread where anyone can post when they have spotted/rode one of these buses. I got this idea after seeing a couple of other tracking threads here. The others are for only one type of bus, but I figure since FT has such a small fleet, and there are so few buses of each type left, it would be okay to combine both into one thread. The general consensus is Classic 8921 was retired this summer. (The Wiki has yet to be updated to reflect this. I've applied for Wiki editing rights, but if any editors can place 8921 in the retired list, that would be good.) This leaves two Classics, 8941 and 8961. According to the Wiki, all nine RTS buses Fredericton bought are still in service. I've so far spotted all but 8013 and 8014. (I would think given the numbering there must be (or used to be) an 8011 and 8012. However, I've never heard anything about them and I can't find pictures of them on Google Images, so I'll assume for now that they never existed.) I ride the buses twice every weekday, so I'll probably post here at least 2 or 3 times a week. Given the limited number of members from Fredericton on here, perhaps I'll be the only one to ever post here. Here is a list of the older buses I've ridden in the past three weeks. All were on the 11 Prospect route: 2/18 8961 2/19 8982 2/21 8021 2/24 8941 2/26 8941 On February 25 I spotted 8981 on 11 Prospect, and today I went to Kings Place and spotted 8982, 8983, 8984, and 8991. I rode one of them on 11 Prospect, but I forget which.
  4. Word of mouth spreads fast. As was hinted in the TTS 2015 Fan Trips thread, yes a TTC RTS charter has been planned for the end of February. I would like to stress that this charter is taking place at night whereas the TTS charter is taking place during the day, and the two charters will not necessarily be covering/touring the same areas of the city. So now there are two RTS charters, not intended to compete with one another but to provide double the opportunity. A select few like to throw words around like it's nobody's business. Keep those kinds of opinions to yourself, most of which are based on false assumptions and stereotypes. Don't want a flame war? Don't start one. With that out of the way, here's what was posted regarding the charter on Facebook, in more detail: With all the uncertainty surrounding the retirement of the TTC’s Nova Bus RTS buses, charter ideas have sprung up again. For those longing for a rush of nostalgia, there is a plan to take an RTS out to Scarborough, East York, and the eastern part of Downtown, mainly covering the routes that Danforth Garage operated with the RTS before it closed down in March 2002. Every effort will be made to charter a bus with a perfectly working Luminator MegaMax 2000 sign and no bike rack to replicate an RTS out of Danforth Garage in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Here are the details of the planned charter in point form: - Date: Saturday February 28th, 2015 - Duration: 4 to 6 hours (hoping for 6) - Start Time: 6 PM (but please try to arrive before 5:45 PM to sort out registration) - End Time: depends on duration – 10 PM, 11 PM, or 12 AM - Break: yes, if charter is 5 or 6 hours in duration; a coffee shop is located nearby for food and/or washrooms - Areas/routes being covered: Scarborough, East York, Downtown (east of Yonge) - Main focus of charter: routes operated by Danforth Garage prior to its closure - Pick-up and Drop-off Location: Ellesmere RT Station - Cost: $50 to $60, depends on attendance - Payment Method: cash, in person at pick-up location Ellesmere RT Station is easily accessible by subway or RT, has ample parking available at no cost (free on weekends) immediately next to the station on the east side (accessible from the east service road off Ellesmere Road), and reasonably accessible by bus (about 5 minutes walking distance from the nearest 95 York Mills bus stops on Ellesmere Road at the west service road). Kennedy Road is the nearest exit off of Highway 401. The pick-up location will be on the west side of the station under the Ellesmere Road bridge (the 95C bus stop is nearby, but the branch does not operate on weekends). For those driving, access to the pick-up location on the west side of the station from the parking lot on the east side of the station is via the station entrance (stairs down, tunnel, stairs up; a fare is not required to cross over to the other side). The original plan for this charter was for it to take place sometime in the summer, but because about half of the RTS buses have been pulled off the road and an increasing number are receiving Luminator Horizon designation signs, it was decided to have the charter before the beginning of next month (as it is feared even more will be withdrawn). If you are interested in/able to attend the charter, please indicate so in a reply below. Also feel free to ask any questions.
  5. Detroit Diesel 6V92TA

    T-Drive Nova Bus RTS-06 WFD

    Does anyone know the exact release date of the T-drive Nova Bus RTS-06 Wide Front Door? I am trying to confirm that 1997 Nova Bus RTS-06 WFD's were V-drive only, but I am not 100% sure if that is truly correct.
  6. Does anyone know whether or not the GMC RTS II Articulated Bus, model T9J204, would have been successful if it were to have materialized beyond the prototype phase? Specifications did exist: the powertrain was a Detroit Diesel 6V92TA MUI engine producing 315 hp @ 2100 rpm (#2 diesel fuel) and Allison V735 transmission. In Canada, though, a GM articulated bus did exist, but only for that market (and delivered to just four cities there, all in the province of Ontario: Mississauga; Ottawa; Hamilton and Toronto), only for the 1982 model year and just 53 units made. Essentially it had the GM Classic front end fused to the "New Look" body. The powertrain was a Detroit Diesel 8V71N engine producing 255 hp, mated to the Allison V735 transmission. 10 years later, MCI (which took over bus production from GMC in 1986) dusted off this model as the TC60102N, which now shared its entire body with the Classic and used the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA DDEC engine (making roughly over 300 hp) and Allison VR736 ATEC transmission, but again this wasn't anything to write home about: equally as short-lived, it was (as before) never ordered outside of Canada, and this time only being delivered in Quebec City, QC and Halifax, NS (the latter of which got most of these). ~Ben
