School Bus 101

First Student Canada

Recommended Posts

Spotted two brand new black and white Thomas Saf-T-Liner EF buses parked at Cardinal's north yard yesterday numbered 121224, and 121227. They look pretty much the same as 131130-131133 except they are black and white. I wonder if these are replacements for some of the Strathcona Tweedsmeer bus fleet.

I have never seen a bus like this before!!!

They have had that bus since it was new. It was formerly 1309 of Cardinal Coach Lines and used as a School Bus in the usual yellow 'School Bus' livery until it's retirement about 3-4 years ago when it became some sort of activity bus or something.

#2478 has recently been repainted to School Bus Yellow and obviously no longer operating on the Strathcona Tweedsmere school routes.

Do you have any images of 2478 in its new colors? Also, do you know of any First Student bus yards and their locations other than the Main Yard and North Yard?

Nope, sorry. I saw it in the dark the other night.

The only other yard that I know of, is the Blackfoot yard which is on the north side of Glenmore Trail just west of Blackfoot Trail in the south.

I think I saw that bus today, number seems familiar too!!!

I have been seeing several of the new C2's on the road this week so far. I don't like the 6 digit numbering system though. By the time I get home from work after spotting one I start questioning what fleet number I saw in the end. The one I saw yesterday afternoon, I believe was 131730 or 130730. I forget what the third digit was. saw 13x734 as well.

True, not sure what number I saw but I thought it ended in 10, but I can't writr it down when I am driving, and it is not a one off like Wilco 1805, which I did see a couple of days ago.
