The only reason I paid specific attention to this 6300 is because a former board member claimed that all 6300's had GPS. This proves him wrong.

I have gone a year without riding a D40 without GPS. I think they all got them. Of course one could be slipping through the cracks.

Also it's the guy who was recently banned.

EDIT: I changed it to D40 because that's it proper name. It's like calling you a name your not, like George or Tim.

Maybe a Merivale bus. I mainly ride the St.Laurent buses, but rarely a Merivale or a Pinecrest bus.

edit: OC calls it a D40HF...

Yes they do, but their proper name is D40. Don't make the same mistake that OC Transpo makes. But you can, not like I control you.

Anyway back on topic. I spotted 9238 or whatever 92 was stored at St. Laurent for less then a year finally towed to Swansea about a month ago. Yet they rushed out the T6H5307-N's when they were retired...

Okay, I'll explain it, 3 Orion Vs (now 2) remain at St. Laurent since their retirement in 2007, the T6H5307N didn't remain around St. Laurent that long after retirement. So that is considered "Rushed out". Do you need it more clear or did I do my job here?

The Orion V's are awaiting to be scrapped for $$$. Maybe people hates scrapping Orion product. my guess. im sure their was a reason to why the V;s are still their, cant remember.

Well they are pretty much rusted. Not like they can be bought second hand. But I'm surprised no scrapping company has bought those 2. Metal is Metal to them.

Maybe OC Transpo is saving both of them for parts.

i saw 95X at Bronson and Somerset today with passengers on it too! Also a 85 was pulled out of service probably due to some sort of emergency at Bronson and Gladstone.

Obviously OC would not have originally called them D40HF's when there were no Low Floor buses around except for the odd Orion II. (If I recal correctly?)

For those who are curious to know, 4099 (which was marked 97 Airport also) was one of two buses used as shuttle buses for the passengers that were inside the plane that slid off early this week. Looks like there was also an Invero although I barely had a glimpse of it without knowing the fleet number

I saw it this morning on the 7X heading downtown

4433 is still wrapped with University of Ottawa bus wrap. I saw it today at Place D'Orlean Transitway station.
