Glad to see 4636 finally departed the factory.

Another thing to note, there is another batch of 93 Novas slated to begin arriving in November.

4683-4775

During the 2019 Budget, OC requested funds to purchase 91 new 40-foot buses (79 replacement, and 12 growth units): https://cptdb.ca/topic/7639-goa-transit-news-info-etc/?do=findComment&comment=839485

Interesting that they added another two units to the order.

Good more Invero's will be gone by the  some time in 2019. Hope in 2020 they order another 80-100 Nova's, the sooner the Invero's are disposed of the better off  we will be(good ridence to them!! I hope they destroy them with out any mercy!!) 👿 ). The Invero is just horrible, crappy A/C,crappy Destination signs, crappy interior lighting.

Could those two be the electric buses that they are now recommending? Apparently a contract is ready to go and the buses would be brought into service next year if approved. The timeline sounds like they would match up.

It could also just be a coincidence.

To alert the passenger to push the bar, and they dont open as far inwards as the D60LF and LFR so dont complain

I prefer the doors on the artics even in that case, as at least I can get by the 4-5 people always standing next to the rear doors in that case to get off the bus. Even the D40i has a wider rear door it seems, to me anyway. Still, they are very nice buses.

Maybe back then he was referencing the LRT delay debacle. A route like the 5 should be perfect to trial electric buses on.

These would be Nova LFS electric/hybrid buses I presume?

I don't see the issue with OC Transpo using hybrid/electric buses in revenue service, but they belong on frequent-stop routes, like the 5, not on the Transitway.

They presented a short list of candidate routes which included the 5, 9, and 10. There are at least a dozen other routes of similar length in the same area which would also be serviceable if they just installed some charge stations at Hurdman.

Another downside to the Inveros is in the later models is that there are no cords or stop buttons in the back of the bus. You always have to reach over someones shoulder to ring the bell.

There's no point to post photos every time. They will go out in service and they all look the same.

@JCL Is doing an amazing job documenting and photographing the new units as they come in.  You're not an admin.. nor do you contribute to this thread so quit telling people what they can and can't post.    I've reported your post and I encourage others to do the same.

Yup.  I am sick and tired of people undermining the work of others.  This thread has valuable information in it and I would hate for people to stop posting pictures.    Don't you agree?

Personally I think that posting near identical pictures of identical buses on a weekly basis isnt very interesting, particularly as we are already informed of the individual vehicles themselves, Id much rather see them in service. I appreciate the note of which ones have arrived, but I dont really need to see pictures of every single one of them.

If anyone is really desperate to see them they could go to Cityview themselves, its not exactly a difficult place to get to.

I am not going to travel 3 hours just to go see these buses.   These statistics will be neat to look back at one day.  I've looked back at pictures and delivery dates of other buses when brand new such as the inveros.   

Don't follow this thread if you don't want to see delivery dates and pictures.   Very simple.

Who are you to tell anyone what they can and can’t do?

you “joined” this board a month ago and you’re dictating to people what they can view and say on the board?

whats your other logins on the board? this place is riddled with multis, particularly the Ottawa forum, and has been for a while.

All I am doing is defending the users in this thread who are posting delivery/in service dates and pictures.   Do you actually post anything useful to this thread? If you're gonna be a cry baby about it then hit the report button and let SMS deal with this situation.

It's really funny you're fighting a battle for the user I originally called out.

These are from June 22 (this past Saturday). Do you need pictures from the June 15 sightings that I posted on June 17?

Saw 4663 at Mack Bridge around 3:40pm on Mack Bridge westbound -- I missed the route number.
