Haha ? and I meant the low km's, my old car had more! And I think the 8 added was more of a 'on the books' sort of thing.

I've been told that all of them have been sold now. There is a lineup of retired buses parked outside, easily seen from Chandler Dr. I also saw a 212xx-series Nova parked beside them, which I assume is being repaired and just parked there temporarily.

Seen a 22xx being towed by flat bed up Ottawa st yesterday, was too far away to see a number.

Must be on the way to the scrap yard.. Most of them or all of them I believe had scrappers bidding for them.

Yup, talking to drivers very few say anything nice about the 2300's. Only good I hear is they are heavy and stick to the road well in winter. Other than that I don't think they will be missed much.

Unless MTB is able to repair it. When the Flyer in Burlington burned up it was at MTB for quite a while and is now since been back on the road

The bus in Burlington was a year old, so it was more worthwhile to repair. This bus is 7 years old, less economical to repair because it has a shorter expected lifespan. Regardless, how about we wait to see what the actual damage is and any official word from the transit agency before making bold assumptions on retirements.

Oh snap! Still has it's farebox in it, maybe it's included? Heh

And since I like digging up 2 year old shit, did they scrap 793? 

Read the information that was on the listing. It literally says Not included - Fare Box

Pfft, read the listing... :rolleyes: I was more referring to the fact that those fareboxes are "obsolete" to GRT
