Clearview Transit


Recommended Posts

Township of Clearview will start its pilot transit project on November 21. The route will circle around Stayner before travelling to Wasaga Beach Superstore, where connections can be made to Wasaga Beach Transit and Collingwood Link. Service operates hourly from 6am to 8pm, 7 days a week.

Sinton-Landmark 3322 has been decalled in Clearview colours and will be used as the primary vehicle.

This article from earlier this year talks about Clearview piggybacking on a Wasaga Beach order (one for Clearview, three for Wasaga) from Girardin Blue Bird.

I wonder if they're talking about the plain-white G5 that Sinton's been using in recent months? I haven't seen any pictures of Wasaga's new units, so I also wonder whether these four buses are still being built and the white one that's been spotted recently is a leaser?

That plain white one is owned by Sinton and is used as a back up for all 3 systems when it is needed.

Oh, okay, so that means that these four buses that will become the permanent one for Clearview and three for Wasaga that the press wrote about are still being built then? I wonder if anybody knows what they are and when they're due to arrive? I'd imagine they'd be G5s on GM chassis.

Looks like their G5 has arrived and is in service, a monster on a Ford chassis, most likely powered by that monstrum V10.

 

Also, while we're at it, here's my picture of Clearview's bus on Weir Street in Stayner back in August, 2017 when I made a road trip around the county with a fellow member and another friend. I believe this is probably the only pic from the fan community of the Clearview bus actually within her home municipality instead of Wasaga Beach. :P;)

This completely slipped past our radar this year, but Clearview's now a two-route system. Their hub is at the Clearview Township council building in Stayner, with Route 1 running through Stayner and to Wasaga Beach, and Route 2 linking Stayner to Creemore.

Wonder if they bought more buses to reflect this or if 3322's being used for it?

The Route 1 and Route 2 buses are scheduled to be in different places at the same time, so I would assume that means there's two buses.

Sinton has a few extra transit buses already - they have two blank unnumbered buses used as backups, and Collingwood 712 (the bus formerly dedicated to the Wasaga Beach Link) is also now available. Dunno if they purchased an extra bus for the second Clearview route, or just dipped into their existing pool (especially since Clearview route 2 only operates 4 days a week).

Thanks for letting us know about the changes.
