if its a valid doctors note exempting you from driving for certain reasons the employer has to honour it provided that they have the equipment to accommodate. if it was a system like the STM where they only have Nova and you get a doctors note exempting you, then the employer will have to find another method of work. They cant however ignore your exemptions and force you to drive a certain bus model.

So...anyone know why the Cambridge route re-design is still not proceeding this fall?

The service expansion in Cambridge was delayed until Spring 2023 due to an operator shortage.

Northfield?

There is a lot of movement going on. It looks like the hybrids are based out of Northfield along with a majority of the 2009 iXpress units. Just a hodgepodge of buses have been moved up there.

Quick question for those who know for sure. Furthur back in the discussion it was mentioned that the artics would arrive in the fall.  On the wiki it says 2023. Is there concrete info for when they will arrive? And also how many are on order? Im assuming 3 like was stated in the news article from a while back? 3 buses per year for 3 years? Any ideas what routes they will be used on? Im also assuming they will be hybrids like the 40ft. Thanks a lot!

afternoon a few updates.

2022 nova hybrids are post to start Delivery this month.

there is strong talk that some of the 2009 Novas could be parked this year most are now over a million miles.
