Visual Sighting
TTC 1051 (WiFi) on 941 Keele Express

They've been showing up on almost all MtD routes at one time or another. I've seen them on the 32, 79, 161, 168, 501L, 501P, 504D and 941

Visual sighting, confirmed with a tracker since I was too far to see the vehicle number:

TTC 8362 is on the 41 Keele route, tracking as 8 run

10:50a: 8075 is helping out on the 171 as a supplementary bus to the regular bus due to traffic and construction

12:04p: 3518 is doing an in service training run with an instructor and trainees on the 35A Jane northbound, at Wilson

12:16p: 8305 is on the 120 Calvington. I spotted it in the turning lane from Keele onto Wilson, en route to Wilson Stn

TTC 1364 on the 32D Eglinton West. It flew westbound through Keele/Trethewey at 8:26a

Two additional sightings for the day:

3525 was drafted to help out on the 35 Jane. I noticed it at 2:24p southbound at Trethewey 

8108 was drafted to help out on the 34C Eglinton East. It has left Eglinton Stn at roughly 5:15p to start its eastbound trip

TTC 7946 putting the boot in, up the 427, on the way to the 'Saug, on 900. This does not show up under the route number, but Transee reports the bus itself at Terminal One now.

TTC 7974 on a much more mundane used-to-be-Shorncliffe 123C.

I had one TTC sighting this morning on the way to work.  One.  I saw 4550 on 509 this morning when I crossed Fleet St. as Max Webster's "Million Vacations" was playing on the car radio.  Yeah,  you can only drive down Main St. so many times but that's 506, and at this point I'd love a million vacations but I'd happily settle for only one.

Visual sighting:

TTC 8178 was drafted to assist on the 41 Keele this morning. The driver did fairly good with keeping up to me from Keele Stn until Lawrence. 
 

Also, I only noticed 7949 was sent to assist with supplementary service on the 171 today.

I noticed 7949 was tracking at Arrow garage for a while too, maybe it did 99 as well, lol

TTC Transsee Sighting

8527 is the last bus to operate on 6 bay before being renumbered to 19 bay
Left service at 01:32 am

UPDATE: I confused the times by 24 hours, so this would be incorrect.

Visual sightings:

Last night, there was a McNicoll LFS on the 88 South Leaside (I sadly forgot the number), and Birchmount covered new grounds with 8584 on the 11 Bayview

Today, 3309 was on the 88 South Leaside. Later on in the day, I spotted 1383 (Wilson) on the 171

Visual Sightings
TTC 8351 on 13A Avenue Road
TTC 4509 on 509 Harbourfront
TTC 7946 on Line 1 Shuttle

And not sure if anyone’s mentioned this yet, but the routing for northbound Line 1 shuttle has changed due to new lane restrictions on Yonge near St Clair.  The buses are unable to make wide turns at that intersection, so now they’re going east on St Clair, north on Mt Pleasant, west on Davisville back to Yonge where they get back to regular routing up Yonge St.

Prior to the pandemic, Line 1 shuttles would typically drop passengers off at the main entrance on St Clair, then proceed via Avoca and Pleasant to the lower level bus terminal to load for the northbound trip. Your post makes it sound like this no longer occurs - does loading now occur on street level, at the same spot as buses are unloading?

No, sorry.  They still unload at street and go to the lower level bus terminal for boarding.  Instead of turning right out of the terminal onto Pleasant and right onto Yonge, they now turn left onto Pleasant, left on Avoca, then right onto St Clair to follow the routing I described.

They were still following the previous routing for most of the pandemic until construction and lane realignment/bike lane additions + CafeTO came all at once.  I took the shuttle last weekend and can’t be too sure about when the routing changed as the driver of the bus I was on that day (Artic) turned left on Plesant, left on Avoca, and left on St Clair instead of right, and then struggled quite a bit to turn right onto Yonge (they had to reverse a few times at the intersection to make the turn without hitting anything).  As we approached Davisville that day, I noticed two other northbound shuttle buses turn right off Davisville onto Yonge.  

I took the shuttle yesterday and the day before - both followed the new routing I mentioned in my earlier post.

Thanks for the updated information.
