Are school routes in the 600's usually assigned an artic?

It depends on what route that particular driver does before/after that trip on a 6xx route.

Was that a charter you attended, or was it something you found floating around?

Also notice that the fare card says "$5.00" for rural express?

5098 -> Has a burnt out front left headlight.

8130 -> displays "A1 ME!" on the back destination sign when out of service

6608 -> 187 Amberwood (Baseline Station @ 5:51 PM)

😔, Didn't get details as to when it disappeared, but I went to OMT to find that 8902 was no where to be found.

8126 -> Says "A3 Message" on Front destination sign when out of service

6670 -> (97 Bayshore) accidently branched off on the Parkway and traveled along Woodroffe and Carling rather than stay on the Parkway and serve both stops 1A and 4A (bus only served local platform with routes 16, 85, 153, bypassing the 2 other stops at Lincoln Fields Station as a result) @ 8:57 PM

Just left Billings Sb

Looks like a crowd. Most likely getting off at Greenboro or South Keys to connect to local routes.

Uplands/Hunt Club? Not sure why they still run this branch for like six trips.

Saw 6608 on the 49 Hurdman this morning at Pleasant Park/Fairbanks around 8:35.

Does anyone know if an artic is now assigned to this trip in the morning, or if it is simply a sub?
