Seems a bunch of diesel Novas are moving to Spring Gardens. Yesterday 8121 and 8110 ran the AM 744 (normally an SG/SF run). I checked later and 8121 is marked SG on Transit55 and has done several SG blocks. 8108, 8170, 8173 and 8190 are also marked SG currently. 8190 and 8121 have done 3 SG blocks each, while 8173, 8170 and 8108 have done 2 each. Is it normal for CT to move Novas to SG in the winter or is this a unique thing?

All returned as of this morning. They were transferred to Spring Gardens in error over the weekend.

8131 is showing Victoria Park on Transit55 and I watched it go all the way there at the end of its block.

Moved back this morning to Stoney. A number of mechanical issues have occured resulting shortages of buses and manpower to change off buses with mechanical issues. As a result, multiple blocks of work have received change off buses from other garages, just to keep service moving. The bus returns to where the block of work is scheduled to end and then it is up to fleet staff to ferry them back to the designated garage.

Makes Sense, thanks for some clarification!

7831 on the 37 today

 Thank you very much for your info😊 can you let me if you see # 7831 tomorrow.  I would love to go ride it tomorrow. I start my bus trips in the afternoon.  I'm not able to track it because the CAD is not working. I hope they fix the CAD soon.

7877 is back. Unfortunately I was not able to get a clearer picture of it.

Here’s a better shot of 7877 I took early this morning on the 66

7877 is a VERY solid, clean bus. Zero rattles, very good shape!

Yeah you're so right I was on # 7877 yesterday on the 66. I was shocked on how good the condition was on that bus.

An interesting fact about the 2003’s 04’s and first batch of 2005’s is how little they were used compared to 7921-7962 or 7981-8015. The 2004’s have less km’s on then then 8066-8095. This is due to the fact that sg was a Monday-Friday garage until 2008. Even then it only had about 60 runs on Saturday and 40 on Sunday. On top of that most of the work when they were brand new finished before 19:00 and went shuttle so they were only working 12-14 hours and only on weekdays.
