TTC Nova Bus Delivery & Service Tracking

Recommended Posts

For those keeping track: There are only 15 nova hybrids that need to be delivered out of the 3455-3569 series and 125 nova hybrids have entered revenue service out of all of the nova hybrids that are on TTC property.

And Queensway division obviously won't get those.

As if the restricted height wasn't already a reason these Hybrids aren't going...

and like Queensway has buses being retired there... Malvern totally doesn't have NG Hybrids needing to be replaced

Really dude? Why you have such a hard on for Queensway? 

No hard on but for once I just want Southern Etobicoke to get a taste of brand new bus deliveries and have them enter revenue service on routes like 44, 76 or 110.

It's a bus. What will be so special? The new bus smell?

If so, just take a trip down to where they are running. Don't really see the big deal.

And how many people in the world cares after 1 week of riding them?

Travel the TTC’s bus network. It’s not as exciting as it was 10-15 years ago, but you get to learn about the city as you journey around (this is what I did when I was in my early teenage years)

3502 has entered service on route 84D, odd to see it entering service at Arrow Rd

Did you physically see it in service?

Maybe Arrow is keeping some nova hybrids? I believe that they were trained on them.

right now it is hard to say which bus belong to which division since the standby buses from one garage can be deployed to other division routes now especially the Vision unit comes with a route map

The fact of it entering service could mean a different thing, but yea that is true

it depends on the time the day.  Sometimes dispatch lets the standby operator to pick up any bus from the lot.

As someone just stated in "Today sightings" they seen 3523 training, that one is not even tracking yet so I bet they are training them

I was told from a few operators I know at arrow road garage that they indeed had training on the nova hybrids. I posted about 3523 training the operators earlier this week a friend of mine from arrow road was inside the bus at the time and said that arrow road garage might have the nova hybrids in service so they can move the articulated buses to mount Dennis division apparently Jane might move to mount Dennis division and run with the articulated buses.

This is one possible theory: since it seems like the 7900s could be retiring since a few have already, and arrow is being trained on the hybrids despite them entering service at malvern, it could be possible the later hybrids are delivered to arrow, and 3100s go to queensway. Also the artics could move to mt dennis in exchange for Orion hybrids. This is all a theory. Do not count this as actual proof

This sounds logical. MtD was built to handle 75 artics. Now they are starting to fix the situation. As construction on Finch West LRT progresses, it the best they shift the artics off the 36.
