TTC NovaBus LFS Movement List

What is your fixation with these buses? These things are four years old. They work, they run, and they're not any more or less hygienic than any other vehicle in the fleet that's been in service for more than 3 days. The average passenger likely has no idea that they're on a Nova that's four years old, instead of one that was delivered a few weeks ago.

Do you also get upset when one of the early Flexities shows up to a stop instead of the recent deliveries?

These buses should've been delivered to Queensway brand new during their procurement in 2015/16.

I just got off the phone with the manager of malvern, they’re canvassing all technicians asking if they’re willing volunteer to work a week at queensway. So, after some deliberation, I accepted.

If you complained less, did a little research and used some logic you would know that the 2015 (8400-8504) and 2016 (8510-8617) LFSs have the same engine as the 2006 (7900-7979) and 2007 (8000-8099) V

I believe so, because I talked to the trainer, and also got him to change the sign for a picture....

I'm starting to get kind of annoyed with these "Queensway should have gotten new LFSs instead of 84-86xx" comments. They're still relatively new.

Genius101 already complained a long time ago, so what will more complaining do? If you have an issue with Queensway not getting new buses, fine, but please don't keep bringing it up here for it doesn't really add anything constructive.

Expect more "hand me down" movements soon. It looks like a few of Queensway 86xx units are at Hillcrest so I think the 84xx have been going to Queensway to replace them. Maybe the 86xx at Queensway will reunite with the rest of the 8510-8617 batch at Birchmount???

So this means 84xx Novas won't be a replacement of 79xx and 80xx Orion Vll, right?

This can change next year once McNicoll is ready for operation. I can see the 8400s and 8500s migrating to Queensway in theory while the 7900s may potentially be candidates for movement to McNicoll (including the four remaining 7900s at Birchmount for Police use) along with 20-30 LFS Artics for use on the 939 and 953.

I wonder if Birchmount may able to take some of the 8900s from New Eglinton just to keep the fleet capacity in check due to them over being 318 buses?

With all of these LFS HEV's at Arrow, they will most likely push out some of the LFS units to Birchmount, then maybe Wilson can get some novas so that some of Wilson's NG HEVs move to Malvern in order for the 15xx-18xx to continue to be replaced as they retire.

I wonder if they could send some Nova HEVs to MtD for comparison with the Proterras.

They could send MtD 25 LFS HEV units and then the 25 15xx-16xx NG HEVs at MtD can go to Malvern.

This can change next year when McNicoll is getting some LFS HEVs from Malvern and Arrow along with some Malvern Orion VII NG hybrids. 
 

Speaking of McNicoll, has vehicle training just started yet?
