Everything is updated including the delivery of the 2016 Novas 8560-8565

Are all the new Novas equipped with ZF Transmissions?  I though the 2015 Novas had Allison B400R6......

8162 was in service yesterday on route 401 Simcoe. I personally think 162 will be around for a while still, I've driven it a few times, no evidence to suggest that it would be on the block. 

@J. Bullock and I were back there

we mustve seen it incorectly

ill remove it from the list tonight when I get home, thanks for pointing it out

Just now, J. Bullock said:

8163 is a shared unit between Raleigh and Westney, it all depends on which trip it ends up on. If the trip ends in Oshawa, it's at Raleigh, if it ends in Pickering it's at Westney.

So this bus would usually be used on a 916?

From sightings around here Jon it's been at Wentworth for quite some time now actually.

I don't know if this has been pointed out or not already, but 8522 and 8523 were operating on Westney routes last time I saw them. Saw and rode 8522 on 101 Bay Ridges last week and I 8523 was on 112 Brock road in February. Are there any other 2012 Allison B400R Xcelsiors here too?

Fleet numbers of 2017 and 2018 Nova Busses are confirmed to be 8566-8589, these will complete rid DRT of Gen 2 Novas 8153-8173, 8324-8329 as well as one D40LF.

as of right Howe the distribution of theses 24 is as follows

The 2017 order of 13 will delivered to Raleigh

the 2018 will be distributed 5 to Wentworth to replace the current 83’s and 6 to westney

this would require a shift in vehicles likely XD40’s for this to be executed correctly.
