Wish they would stop rebuilding the crappy small buses. 

Would you rather see them in the landfill? Even if they're no longer orange, this is way better than retirement.

I think that opinion is a POS. I've ridden D30LF's a lot, and never had much of an issue. One time, I was riding a D40LFR, and everyone was forced to get off because of a Check Engine light, I can't say the same for a D30LF.

There time is coming not to sound mean but the D40I weren’t really built for our type of routes and the short buses most can be done with a big one saw a 97 today with a 40 footer spirts fb be done only one that needs a short bus is really the 88. Even 91 can be done with big bus and replace the dart service. There time is slowly coming and a lot of them ride like a bully in Spain hurting he drivers back.

I've ridden them a lot on R95, and other routes, and I've never had a problem. Sure, they may be a bit rough on our bumpy streets, but that's Winnipeg.

D30LF #939 (still orange) today on route 32 North Main Express... 

Is the 32 a usual haunt for shorties?

From growing up in Winnipeg all those years, I've seen them on the 41 and 22, but 32? Thats a new one, for sure.

Should have at least the front end painted other than Boring Snow White.

Rode 937 (still orange) on Route 2 (run card 2-1) this afternoon. It was the only D30LF of any color on any of the three Spirit routes today.
