Peterborough Transit

Recommended Posts

36, 37, 38, 39 and 40 are the fleet numbers.

The latest order of Novas for Peterborough is actually for 15 buses numbered 36-50 which are being delivered in three groups of five vehicles. I know that the second five (41-45) have been delivered but I am not sure if the delivery of the third batch of buses has been started.

Brand new Peterborough 3rd gen Nova LFS's 52, 53 and 54 waiting for delivery at the Nova plant today.

Sounds like they will be the first one in Ontario to have a full rear.

Are they still there? I am going to Peterborough in the near future to check them out.

No clue.. I havn't checked out the Nova plant in 2 weeks now. They could have been delivered by now.

The 3rd Gen novas wont be here till August i was told. and they are getting 4 of them.

I guess there still at Nova.. I was by the plant last sunday, but I didn't see them in the same location they were last time. There's so many buses at Nova awaiting delivery it's insane! They must be mixed in the big lot of buses off to the side of the plant some where. They are in full Peterborough Transit livery btw..

Could they be in another plant, the 2nd one in Quebec?

Could they be stateside at the US plant? Or is that US bus orders only?

The Peterborough 3rd gens are still at the St Eustache plant, just that they probably moved them either off to the side or in the back where there are about 40 BC Transit 3rd gens!

What kind of transmission do their LFS uses? (Including the 3rd gens.)

Peterborough is using Allison. I haven't been back since 2006, unless there are changes but I have my doubts.

If it's Allison then it's interesting! I never heard a 3rd gen. with an Allison.

There aren't many LFS customers who orders with Allison after 2002 Quebec orders. Well, it will be interesting once they kick into the service and able to ride one.

Autocars des Chutes, in Quebec is having some L.F.S. with Allison B400R.

Peterborough's LFS are very weird. To date, they're the only ones I've seen with roll signs. These days, LFS seem to come standard with Axion displays, which are quite good, IMO. Will the 3rd-gens that are awaiting delivery continue the roll sign trend?

Um, what year? Cause last time I saw their buses they have ZF, which was their 2007 model.

None of their today's LFS have Allison in Quebec, you either pay it up for option or stick to their standard specs.

There is only one or two places in states that had rollsigns on there LFS. The 2009 Peterborough order should be all digital signs just like there 2008's.

I guess you haven't see their latest photo, their 2008 ordered have switched to Luminator Horizon and it's only on the front sign.

Albany have switched their rollsign to back to electronic sign again.

Elliot Lake is another system that went to rollsign on their LFS.
