Cold Lake Transit


Recommended Posts

I was watching out for any existing cutaways that could have been around and didn't spot any. The article isn't too clear exactly what "smaller" means. It seems to be in reference to "capacity". Does that mean that perhaps 1 out of the 6 Classic's has a little bit smaller capacity? Or is it indeed a shorter bus altogether? The fact is, the Classic's actually have a more than 40 seats so the article isn't 100% accurate if you're looking into the tiny details. I honestly can't help but wonder if they counted the seating capacity differently between the buses with shell seats and soft bench seats.

Ridership looked decent so it looks like this system has some potential. While apparently I missed it, a CF-18 took off over us as we entered 4 Wing. Where else can you have a fighter jet take off above you while riding a Classic? :D

Nova Bus it is. 

Resolution #CM20170926.1026 Moved by Councillor Lefebvre that Council authorize the City of Cold Lake to purchase two (2) new 2018 Nova LFS 40' transit buses from NovaBus for $1,147,452.20 plus GST.

 Cant say i'm surprised. They seem to be getting alot of traction as of late.

Was up in Cold Lake on Saturday. The 2 buses in service that day were 5009 and 5011. Nice to see the Ex-Calgary Classics in service, though I wasn't able to get any pictures. There wasn't much ridership on a Saturday afternoon however, so not sure how efficient it is to run a 40' bus during all times of the week.

Does anyone have the VINs, seating model, or transmission for the Novas?

Late reply and thread bump; seats on the Novas are the American Seating Insight Prime+
