Stratford Transit

Not even Stratford would have purchased a 21 year old bus, especially considering the many newer options on the market. Plus, they are not up to unit 91 yet (newest purchased unit was #78).

I suspect it is more a case of one unit having a new GPS unit installed that wasn't reprogrammed with the proper unit number. Are there any known active units that haven't tracked in service in the last little while?

Only one of the school specials currently tracks. The other three do not. I was looking more at tracking number error. I have seen that number on the tracker a few times so I wonder if it's 9765 or 9767.  9764 and 9773 have tracked  in the #1 Special (that is trackable) and rarely conventional routes. Once things calm down again I will go up and investigate. That bus was tracking on the number 6 yesterday and now the number 5 today so I wonder if they're running some sort of special extras.

They seemed to have changed what was to be replaced. 9764 is staying until the end of the year or early next year. 9767 is retired along with EZ Rider 0761. Bus 9773 was being decommissioned while I was there. It will be listed for sale this week. 2181 entered service today with 2182 entering service next week possibly. Buses 0576, 0862 and 1063 are now retained for the school specials. 0977-0978 are now retained as spares for conventional and school specials when needed. They will be used for lower ridership routes when needed. Two more LFS are set to be ordered for this year. One is to replace 9764 and I can't remember if he said one expansion.

What is the status of the ex Niagara Falls Elderado's? 

They are still active. They were not on the road yesterday. They are normally used for lower ridership routes and are kept as spare.
