Spotted this little guy out in Airdrie earlier this week headed out of Airdrie towards Conrich in the early afternoon! Also, I wasn't able to get fleet numbers, but I noticed a lot of those ex-Idaho and California IC buses running around in Airdrie with the US style "First Student" lettering on the sides.

Oh wow, that's quite the find! Have not seen that one before.

Took a quick drive around Greenview Industrial tonight. The Main Yard is no more, as it is now used as a storage lot for (used?) cars. North and NE Yards are still used by First, but are much emptier than in the past.

Speaking of the North Yard, it now has privacy fencing all around its perimeter. One can no longer easily see/photograph any of the buses inside.

I went by and noticed all this about 2 weeks ago, but I forgot to mention it in here.  I had heard the main yard had been sold off back several months ago.

First has taken delivery of 30-40 brand new 72-passenger C2s. Looks like some of the specs on these include full LED lighting, a black grill, and a color version of the company's new logo! And it also looks like they are back to 4-digit numbering...

Seen below are photos of 5817, 5787, some unnumbered C2s, and two former Oregon-based units: 171113 and 17258x.

I saw a Thomas C2, 2021 unit here in Burlington, Ontario.

Nice, but let's keep this thread for First Student in the Calgary area please.  You can always create a thread in the Ontario section for your First Student finds.

 

Speaking of that, maybe this thread should be renamed to First Student (Calgary and area) to eliminate confusion?

Respectfully, I never understood why there’s school bus threads in the Calgary and Area forum anyway. Motor coaches for example have their own forum section altogether so why don’t school buses?
