Any annoying things? Noise, the automatic start stop thing?

Well I think they're overrated. The start/stop feature pisses me off. I feel like these buses will be a failure. The steering is different and is definitely something to get used to. As nice as they look from the outside, I wouldn't say they're good buses on the inside. I definitely like the LFS Diesel and the Orion buses better. 3411 is the bus I drove.

I think they're better inside then diesel Novas. And engine stop/start feature is different but not really intrusive. If anything the front door interlock is more annoying then engine stop/start. If you actually wait for all the doors to close all you have to do is move your foot from brake to gas and the bus goes and engine starts. If you do it before doors close then you have to press the brake and back on gas to go. So patience is required. After you drive it for a bit and get the timing right it's really no different than any other bus. 

Having said that I still prefer Orion's.

That front door interlock will save lives. I want it to be implemented on the rest of the fleet.

As in powered steering? All TTC buses have had them for ages.

When the LFS HEVs were sidelined at the end of February because of a steering defect, they were being stored at Malvern, Eglinton, Birchmount and Wilson divisions. Once they are fixed they make their way back to Malvern.

Yep. Electric over hydraulic specifically. Independent motors for each respective accessory.

Not for long. I’m being shuttled to Wilson to pick them up as I type this.
