It’s a bit extra work some people don’t want to do.  Some of the Ex. Calgary 1995 D40LFs that are now in Winnipeg still have the stripes on the roof as well as some of Calgary’s 2001 refurbed still have stripes on the roof.

3426 on the 133 Neilson leaving Neilson Road and Crow Trail stop

If you want to hate and criticize this, how bout you get off your criticizing butt, go to Malvern and take a picture of the same bus on the same route. Or same bus on a different route.

Well, That looks better! The entire vehicle is shown and centered, nothing in the way, and entire info of the vehicle can been seen (e.i. fleet number, route number, transit logo)

Good Job! I think you have a winner this time!

Thanks. I also just got off 3514 going Northbound before taking that. Some of y’all are right, VISION does say Avenue pretty weird. I think I heard “E-vee-noo” rather than “Ah-vee-noo”

The picture itself is pretty good. Though it could use some editing such as; cropping and increasing the brightness

When you say 7901 is no longer active are you stating that it is stored or retired?

it's been fully restored and is now operational however they will not be putting it in service during the summer as they have been for the last 7 years prior to 2018. maybe if we're lucky they will allow us to use it for charters.

Please, take a trip to Calgary!

Calgary Transit 7654 was a 1999 New Flyer D40LF. It was retired in March of this year, along with 26 other Series 50 D40LFs. It is now a rarity to see these active outside of rush hour after serving the city for between 20 and 24 years.

Toronto CLRV 4143 seen southbound on Bathurst north of Harbord while on route 511 Bathurst. Considering these are all scheduled to be retired at the end of the year this is probably the last canada day for them.

I came back for give y’all one more for this month because my iCloud is getting a little full. Again same rules apply, if you hate on it, go find it wherever and take one yourself. I also adjusted the brightness and cropped it a tad bit, I’d show you my original, but it was actually pretty gloomy when I took it.

Airdrie Transit 3725 is seen in plain white preparing to exit 36th Street NE as a Route 900 Crossiron Mills/Airdrie. Airdrie Transit "discreetly" put these new buses into service, as they entered service sometime in May. 3725 and 3726 are both 2019 models and were likely purchased for expansion.

Exo Terrebonne-Mascouche # 217-203, a NovaBus LFS, is seen at Terminus Terrebonne. Exo is the new branding name for the old CIT operators in the suburban Montreal area. Some buses are getting renumbered when the exo branding is applied. This service is operated by Keolis Canada.

STO 9138 is a 1991 MCI Classic photographed at Labrosse station just after completing a trip on the 200 Labrosse and was about to start a reverse trip back to Ottawa on Route 400 (both of these trips were accessibility violations)

STO 1825 seen at Terrasses de la Chaudière on route 38 Freeman. This unit is similar to the other one I posted above. Except, the driver's window is smaller and the battery park has been updated.
