MiWay Nova Bus Deliveries & Entered Service Tracking

Recommended Posts

1812 was not in service yet.

Using logic, (omitting how 1810 was 8 minutes late) there was no gap on the route 3 representing a missing bus or broken tracker.

Also, the blocks feature are extremely useful to find out. When he posted it 3 hours ago, there were 4 buses on the 3. All 4 were trackable.

Did you spot it personally?

The tracker isn't always accurate as I was told.

T55 is quite accurate. You’ll find fewer to no complaints at all about it if you compare it to transsee or whatever the TTC sighters use. Only noticeable issue I’ve ever had with it is being slightly delayed in its updates. 

Its a top quality tool.

@Happy Power says 1807 and 1811 have entered service. Looks like he's right since they both show up on the Transit55 tracker.

1807 was on the 35

1811 was on the 13

Now there are only 2 units left to enter service.

No they are not. They already have been delivered with mirrors 😫

The driver side mirrors on the 18's have to be retrofitted as they came from the factory with the usual mirrors MiWay has used for years which does not have a powered convex. Because of the way the LFS is designed the driver cannot reach out to adjust the mirror manually so the new mirrors have a powered convex. So yeah....some of the 18s are still waiting for new mirrors before entering service.

All the 17xx Novas were also retrofitted with new driver side mirrors after the issue was realized.

Why wouldn’t MiWay just install a powered left mirror like other agencies have, it seems unnecessary to bring in a complete different model mirror in terms of universal parts for the buses where agencies like Brampton transit has had powered mirrors on the LFS since ‘06 

or is this also a visibility factor with the small circular convex mirror since the nova frame can sometimes block visibility for drivers who sit lower

Thinking about it again and you're right, the visibility could have also been a factor in swapping the mirrors. I just recall there were also issues raised when the 17s first showed up a year ago with not being able to adjust the original convex mirror from the driver seat. 

I was surprised to see the 18s delivered with the older style mirror as well, guess the specs weren't changed but drivers seem to like the newer style mirror that has been retrofitted.
