Perhaps a slight stupid question of sorts, but would the units from the D40LFs just be transferred to these buses just as long as they work? Might seem like a waste of money to purchase brand new readers when there's a good 40+ that can be used to save money in that regard.

Well, obiously they recycling the readers in my opinion.

9087 8563 has NOT working presto reader.

They recycle a heck of a lot more than just the readers. Designation signs, Trump unit and anything salvageable that's worth the time to disassemble.

Yes Now we can assume that entire 1200-1423, 1500-1689, 1700-1829, 9000-9152 sets all presto equipped. 

Looks like next installation process goes to britchmount. 

It is in square brackets :P So it has already assumed to be confirmed.

I wonder if a passenger shows a presto card but the bus doesn't have a reader installed yet, the passenger can get a free ride?

Depends on the operator. I see some allow it, especially in the downtown core with Bmount buses. It's expected that they'll pay at the subway station. TTC's official words is no.

Noticed yesterday on 4077 that two green lights at top of front door unit indicates, according to TTC Supervisor, that unit is not functioning.  Rear door unit was operative.  Interesting.
