Then it's likely the one that TTC's going to be looking at ahead of the full batch of LFS HEVs coming in later this year.

Thanks for your quick response, sir.

ADMIN to delete this post, as I just speculated on fleet numbers when I've been told not to. Thanks!

So will your heads all explode when you find out that they're arriving numbered in the 3100s?

There are two brand new Nova buses that are parked at Arrow Rd garage. Unfortunately, I couldn't catch the fleet numbers because of where the units were parked at the garage. Nevertheless, there are two new units on TTC property.

In front of the garage. There's the parking lot and behind it is a set of concrete blocks. And behind those blocks were the two units parked beside some other novas and hybrids. The protector shields were still on the vehicles and the way the units were parked, the front of the buses were facing the street. What I could see on the buses was that there are two external cameras on both sides of the bus. One at the front sides and the other on the back sides. The last order had one external camera on each side of those buses at the front sides.

Thanks for the info, I'll go and check it out as I have a long lens. Are you able to confirm which area it is on this map? The green or red arrow? http://prntscr.com/jmow9n

3103 and 3104 have been delivered to Arrow! They have side cameras at the rear. Had to use my phone camera as the driver didn’t allow me to get off then exit through the car lot (understandable).

 

Photo will be uploaded once home.

The 3100s also have a fleet number at the back of the bus (interior) and 2 USB ports at the back of the bus. Also there is some new black bar on the interior roof above the stair area, I don’t know what it is. Credit to @Leakiwen (an Arrow Road driver) on instagram. If you wish to see please check his photos out on his page.

Why start at 3100? Why not logically start at 9240? There's plenty of space between 9240 and 9999, and furthermore, by starting at 3100 there's not much space as above 4000 is for streetcars, which leaves only 900 spaces for buses.

Agreed... much smarter to do the 9200-9999 series.

Furthermore, there isn't enough of a difference between 92xx and 31xx to justify a new numbering series. Being 31xx makes them sound like they're part of the RT (since the RT cars are 3000-3027).

hmmmmm.....

 

9240-9999 = 760.... Plenty of space

3100-3999 = 900....  Not much space

2 + 2 = 4 - 1 = 3 Quick Maths.....

Best if the TTC simply reserves the remainder of the 9000-series for clean diesels and put the alternative fuel buses (which will at some point be the only new buses in the fleet) into the unused ranges. Ideally, I would prefer the 2000-series for the hybrids (as there could be a lot, and all of them have been unused since the last Fishbowls left) and the 3100-series for the battery-electrics - at least until the RT cars are gone and scrapped, which will probably not happen before the rest of the 6000-series (and maybe even the 7000-series used by the Orion Vs) gets taken by the T1 replacement trains, just as happened to the D40s.

This is true, but by starting at 3100 they're ignoring the available space between 9240 and 9999. By including that and 3100-3999 there's 1660 spaces in total, rather than only 900.

They're just numbers, guys. No one is going to get the new order of Novas confused with the SRT just because they're both in the 3000s.

The fact that the new Novas are going into the 3000s doesn't disqualify 9240-9999 or whatever from existing later on. Just chill and enjoy the buses for what they are, rather than for an arbitrary number.

This is supposedly the last diesel order ever. It's rather strange to start at 3100. They should have started electric buses with a new range.

The hybrid buses can start at 1900. That's what that range was for.
