The last one looks to be 1567 based off it's location with the others.

EDIT: all three are at North Queen right now

So you see Orion more than novas, and are making the assumption they are wrapped more?

Yes I'm just assuming that. I mostly go at the Jane and Lawrence area and it's rare seeing a wrapped novabus

And this only from one area? What about the east end? What about other areas as well?

Sometimes I go to east end and other areas, recently this year I don't see east end buses with full wrap.

Any idea what might be up? There were no cones setup behind it.. 

Could be waiting for its run, broken down or stuck, and if it was 3413, it is now moving

They tend to do that, even where I am. But before I go into that, I’d like to point out that Littles Rd. was spelled way too wrong. Actually this afternoon, the driver of 1331, parked the bus for 15 minutes, sign was on and the engine was running. So different drivers do their layovers differently

(though except for the Nova’s, remember Stop-Start Hybrid Technology, that explains why the engine in a LFS HEV stops when it’s in park for more than a minute)

Bus is on a layover. Some runs get 15 minutes so yes bus gets shut off.

You're supposed to shut down the bus if it will be sitting for a while especially in a residential area like that. Exception being when it's cold or very hot and there are people on the bus.

Yeah no. It doesn't always stop after a minute.

Isn't it automatic to whether or not the bus will shut off or not?
