Let's hope this will be the TTC's last batch of clean diesels before they are ready to go electric (hybrid or all-electric), just like STM.

Let’s hope you’re not eating your words in 2 years time.

The TTC's bus procurements right now does have this year as the last order of clean diesel buses then they are ordering just 2nd generation hybrid electric buses and battery electric buses. However, things can change so just hold your seat for a little bit longer before we just assume that this is indeed the case going forward.

The 325 buses will most likely have the fleet range of 9240-9564 or 9300-9624. After the 9000 series are all used up, the TTC will most likely start using the 2000 series again.

Why 2000s? That was fishbowl territory and they were iconic one of a kind buses so the TTC should avoid reusing those numbers. It's just like in sports a remarkable player will have his number retired to the rafters so it should be the same scenario here.

Well, you never know because it's like how the PCC streetcars were iconic and two of them are still being maintained and used for service in the summer units 4500 and 4549. However, the TTC ordered Flexity streetcars and they are using the fleet range of 4400-4603. I don't see how the fishbowls are any different. The fleet numbers are not active anymore and should be able to be used sometime in the future. Plus, the fishbowls also used to use the 8000 series and those ones are being reused right now.

Who cares! We'll know the number of the first bus this week. All this speculation is pointless.

I agree with that. It's just clogging up the board.

Actually sometimes speculation can be a good thing. It might be pointless at the end but it gets people's minds going.

It is somewhat fun to see what people think, but it doesn't change the fact that it's basically pointless.

As @PCC Guy stated, we will know the fleet number of the first bus this week.

Alright people! No more speculating fleet numbers! If we were to continue like this, this thread would have to be called the speculation thread where all rumours and inaccurate information is posted sending a bad message to other people on this board that read this thread. When the first unit is reported as delivered to Birchmount this week that will confirm the fleet range for this set of buses and let's just leave it at that.

Your post contradicts your choice of username.
