It will also be operated by Voyageur Transportation Services rather than Hendry Coach Lines, speaking of which, low floor cutaway buses here yet or nah?

Actually for now the 20 will still be servicing that stop. There is some discussion about it's effectivness due to it's location.

This is a true statement. As of last week Voyageur has been awarded the bus plus contract, including the new 77.

So...with no College expansion service this fall, is there any word on route changes or tweaks that may still happen in September?

New BusPlus service to Hanson/Family Centre will launch in September.

In June, 34 Bingemans will change to use Margaret instead of Lancaster, to improve reliability by avoiding the railway crossing at Lancaster.

34 using Margaret should have happened from the start. The lights at Wellington and Lancaster and the railway crossing were cutting into the schedule

Not 20... but I think ythe number was 6 for each model of bus to figure out the best placement. All should be installed by September. With an October roll out for the new fare media.

I couldn't really find a thread on this subject, maybe someone could point me in the right direction. But does anyone have any information about current hiring for bus operators?
