As previously mentioned, 2003 Orion VII 4108 has been decommissioned. I came in this morning to find out 2008 Blue Bird UltraLF 8108 has also now been decommissioned. There must have been an expensive repair that wasn't worth the expense. This now leaves 8109 as the only Blue Bird left in service. 8 Orion VII left in service as well...for now.

Once 8109 retires that will leave Burlington the last system with the Ultra LF. Now after hearing that Oakville may have dropped out of the Metrolinx Consortium that leaves me with what the next year order would be after this final batch of Novas and Vicinities.

Eight (8) Vicinity buses next year. 30ft orders going forward for the time being.

You do know I said 9100 not 6100 right?

Could be a 71, 81, or 91...but sounds like everyone agrees its a 9100.

Ooops...yeah I typed LF... Meant LFR. But yeah, they come off the highway by my work on flatbeds all white.

We are expecting the new Vicinity buses this month (within the next 3 weeks or so). I'm told the 7 Nova LFS will be delivered late summer/early fall at this point. A few slight modifications to this batch of Vicinity buses. Nothing really cosmetically noticeable other than white LED luminator signs.

Thats great news! Hopefully they will be out more often. I do wonder if they will be numbered 1701-1704 or 1708-1711.

Three of Oakvilles brand new Vicinity buses just turned onto Dorval Drive heading to the Oakville Transit Garage. They are ghost white, with white LED signage. 

They will be numbered #1701-1703. Initial reports were for 4 to be delivered but actually only 3. The Nova LFS buses will be #1704-1710, and will come with orange LED signage because they're metrolinx order. Everything delivered going forward will have white LED according to maintenance staff.
