That's incorrect now... Perhaps maybe you have more info? 

Well, it was in the dead line up until a few days ago...

I guess it can now be considered a zombie bus?!

(I wonder if the transmission was replaced...)

S9233 spotted out of service, with caution triangles and oil recovery towels down near WR Centre this morning. Seems like it didn’t complete its 394...

9203 and 9243 are retired.

Are they actually dead (non-driveable)? Makes me wish BCT would buy them for Victoria during our bus shortage.

Not always a dead bus, usually worst condition.

Can we confirm 9223 is done? Still says active on wiki

Might as well. I think it's gone.

Unless it was secretly saved and is now sitting in someone's driveway under a tarp so nobody will find out...

9214 and 9263 are also now in the RTC retirement line. All other buses have been removed except 9206 and 9253.

Bus should have been gone/repaired a long time ago - the wheelchair lift on it has been broken for over a year

In addition, 9201 has had a broken lift for about a year and 9205 has had a broken lift for about a few months

I had noticed that there was a lot of Play on the bottom stair as I was boarding that particular bus the last time I rode it. Looked like it was gonna fall off.
