According to Transsee, today is the first day in service for 3735, the first of the second batch of Proterras. It is out on 3 run Eglinton West, an all-day run.

Just spotted it in service eastbound at Caledonia.

Saw it today, I believe the reason the second batch hasn’t entered service until now is that they have rooftop chargers and Mt. Dennis doesn’t have them installed. I’ve attached a photo of it at Keele and Eglinton with the charger, looks kinda weird.

Agreed. The charger is a bit weird looking.

I don't think the TTC has installed any roof top charging stations at the moment. 3710-3724 and 3735-3749 have roof top chargers in addition to the plug in charging ports. They were ordered with roof top chargers for potential testing in the future I believe. The second batch of Proterras might have needed another round of training/familiarization possibly for the slight differences between them and the first batch. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.

You pretty much nailed it. Nothing to do with the roof top chargers. Also the fact the PDI Inspections and repairs are being performed by an outside company (in the past with the Orions and Nova's the PDI was performed by TTC Techs) and any defects found have to be corrected before TTC will accept the bus.

There's a BYD that can be seen on the RT parked between Lawrence East and Ellesmere

That's #3759. It's at an auto repair shop called BDS Fleet Service.
