MiWay D60LFR charter - Sunday, April 22

Recommended Posts

With MiWay receiving 30 Nova LFS artics, retirement of the 2008 D60LFRs is on the horizon. Even though MiWay plans to keep at least 5 of these buses a bit longer this is not guaranteed (plans can change) and if the remaining ones get sent to Malton that complicates the logistics of the charter.

There will be a charter with a MiWay D60LFR bus on Sunday, April 22. The charter will be a minimum of 4 hours with the possibility of extending it to 5 hours should there be enough participants.

More details such as start/finish times, location, payment etc. will be posted closer to the date. This post is meant as a 'save the date' post and to see what interest is like for this charter.

I am interested in going 

Thanks for your interest in the charter, please keep April 22 in mind. I should have more finalized details next week after the easter weekend. Generally I like to wait until all the details have been finalized before posting them/opening up payment as it is less confusing for people.

Just a reminder that the charter will be on Sunday, full details in a post above. If you haven't let me know you are coming please do so I know who's coming. There is lots of space with an artic. 

A note for those driving to Dixie Transitway the address is 4440 Dixie Road (corner of Dixie/Eastgate). Take note of the attached map and follow the red line from Dixie to access the parking lot. The access is through a bunch of industrial side streets.
