OC Bus Spottings

Recommended Posts

The skin of these buses actually remind me a lot from the early 2000s of the Tridents operated by KMB-MTR in Hongkong....

Go easy on him, He's new to the board. That is an OC bus spotting! He probably just doesn't know that you are supposed to credit the location and give the time of the spotting.

Possible rare sighting 

8042 98 Hawthorne (2:45 Holland/Scott) 

*Disclaimer*

Though the 98 is known to have DD's during the week. I'm unaware of any assignments on the weekends.

Explains why people on Reddit say cptdb is a bad forum.

It's definitely a run out of Industrial, but it is suppose to get an artic only. I have no explanation why the run got a double decker.

I believe 8001 has been unwrapped as well. Saw it last Friday.

I can confirm that 8001 has been unwrapped. 

Saw it this afternoon on the 91 at Mackenzie King Stn.

4313 has an interesting partial ad wrap for (Nissan Sudan?) On the drivers side.

4518 has a vinyl ad on curbside (not sure of what) where the standard ad in an ad rack would go.

I think that's the first time an Invero received a wrap of some kind since 2013, excluding the banner type ones above the windows. The last Invero to get a full wrap was in November 2013 if I recall correctly.

Nowadays, it seems like only the hybrids and some double deckers and artics get partial or full wraps.

I think it's for the townhouses in Old Ottawa East or Wateridge. Anyway, didn't get the fleet numbers, but I've seen at least two or three with that kind of curb side ad now!

seems rare, but I'd imagine it would have ran as route 97 or 98 (or something) after. I'm sure some of our experienced members could give us insight.
