TTC Nova Bus Fleet Refurbs & Retirements Tracking


Recommended Posts

I have compiled list of buses that are at Hillcrest for rebuild since the buses that they are sending have been pretty random:

8773 8782 8783 8784 8785 8786 8787 8788 8790 8791 8793 8794 8799 8805 8822 8829 8830 8846 8851 8855 8856 8870 8884 8887 8913 8914 8915 8918 8919

Looks like they are trying to balance Eglinton and Arrow buses

If its from the same batch they are currently rebuilding, and has other repairs or work need to be done at Duncan, they'll just rebuild it anyways as well. I believe only if the batch is different it they still wait until their batch starts rebuild to actually get rebuilt. Such as if 9200 needed work there, it wouldn't get rebuilt and would get the work done and sent back, and waited till the 9200 series starts rebuild. I noticed this in the past when 8400s were being rebuilt and an 8500 needed work, it had it done and just got sent back and waited till its batch started

Btw, saw this one today on 56. It doesn't have a fleet number on the left side of the bus

Not sure if people noticed, but theres a high pitched sound that comes from the engine on recently rebuilt buses - 8620 amd higher

Its not a problem with the rebuilt buses. Its a big issue with the 3100s as well. It has to do with the turbo seals on the novabuses. Not just rebuilt or newer novas, but the 8400s and 8500s are also a very big victim to this as well, some of them will make a screaming ear bleeding sound when accelerating. There is no real fix to it at the moment thats why you see most of the novas still have this problem.

I don't know if this is worth to note or not but 8552 has green tape on the side window by the windshield that says "2016" in handwritten sharpie.

It should be by the orange sticker on it. Can't think of any other reason why its there other than rebuild related. It didn't have it a week ago when I last saw it
