I have updates for this company

Cunningham is now up to Unit C178

All units are now numbered in this format: C4, C113, C169, C85, etc. While not all are physically numbered yet, it's the new standard.

At least units 168, 169, 170 are International but probably 166-170 are (I will try to find out) The other units through to 178 are conventional Thomas/Freightliners.

Also, many units listed on the page our now out of service, especially the Teens through about C60. I will try to get the numbers.

In addition, There are some buses missing from the list that are definitely active: C84(ok 75% sure on this one), C102, C93, C95, C120, C122, I'm sure there are others, but when you get up to about C80, there aren't any after (that I am aware of) that are not active.

Fantastic; thanks for the info! That page is entirely based on casual spottings, so any help we can get is appreciated :)

I take it you are employed by them in some capacity?

Some new updates.

C3-C5 are all actually listed as 2010 not 2009. C1 and C2 are correct as 2009.

C6-C9 are out of service. I know some of these were never added, but they were all early 80s buses including C7, which was an 1980 thomas (Not 2009)

C15-C19 Are all out of service. All were late 1980s bluebirds and chevs.

C20 is a 2004 International 3000 series 72 Passenger. I don't know the engine model (I can only guess right now that its a T444E

C22 I believe, is out of service. I will have to confirm as it may be it was repaired.

C28 - Out of Service.

C30 - Out of Service.


A Correction to my original posts about new buses 166-178.

C166 - 2015 Freightliner Conventional (Not IC as I originally stated)

C167 - 2015 Freightliner Conventional (Not IC as I originally stated)

C168-C172 2014 International Conventional (172 got listed as 2015 though, and this doesn't seem correct, I will have to find out)

C173-C178 - 2015 Freightliner Conventional

Typically Cunningham seems to list their buses (as far as I can tell) by model year not production year. Is there a standard for what we should use on this site?)

Depends! School buses and cutaways are unique in that they have "model years" similar to cars, that may or may not differ from the production year. Transit buses generally go solely by production year, so for the purposes of the wiki we should stick with that. Nonetheless, if the model year is different that the production year I like to put it in the notes section whenever possible. ;)

The ones that have been added to the database previously are usually listed as -2, but this is not the correct numbering convention)

C29 is, same specs as C31, but 1990


Additionally, a bit more back info:

C6 all the way through C19 were apparently all propane. Not sure if they were converted or what, but some in Cunninghams fleet (past or still active) were converted.

C21 through C31 also, were/are all propane

O61 also is propane, and is the last unit (numerically) that is propane. Everything after will be diesel.


C49 in the database shows as diesel, but is listed as propane. I will try to confirm, maybe leave it as is for thetime being.


I know for sure that C71 and O72 have a big yellow cat diesel in them

Also, one of my previous updates had this, but it may have gotten a bit confused, however, C171 and C172 are both IC's not Freightliners.

C168 through C172 also all have the optional air ride and air operator seat.

I believe it's just "Onoway" as they have a small, separate fleet that operates there. Originally they designated those buses as such, but later (I believe) found it fit better to move buses around fluidly as needed due to maintenance and replacement concerns, So they stopped doing it, but did not remove the existing "O" designations. Either that, or when they bought out the company that operated there, they just numbered the buses that came with the purchase as such.


I was not particularly aware there were many options available for engine in the Saf-t-liner C2's, so just to note, every Cunningham bus that is a saf-t-liner has the Cummins ISB series engine. If there is an exception, and its a big *if*, then it is specifically C1 through C3 but I highly doubt it, and will check into it.

A bit off topic but on the topic of IC CE series, there were some white ones with what looked like LED destination signs sitting at Western Canada IC Bus (Briggs Bus Lines) on Monday.
