5074 89 Tunney’s Pasture leaving Colonnade 17:55, run 6-18. Typically a DD run.

Based on my observations since early this month, I do think some hybrid buses have been moved to Industrial Garage (for reasons that are unknown to me). Therefore some artic and double decker runs are now getting hybrids.

5052 at Blair lay-up at 7:56am
5114 starting a Route 53 Carlington at 15:41
5121 arriving Blair Station at 7:56am
5125 at Tunney's Pasture lay-up, signed as '6 Rockcliffe' at 15:25 (see note below)
5145 on Route 16 Westboro, arriving Tunney's Pasture at 15:42
5173 at Hurdman lay-up at 16:04

Regarding bus 5125, someone else apparently spotted earlier this morning at 6:48am (as per this tweet with a picture: https://twitter.com/OCT_Fan/status/1235894916066291712, https://twitter.com/OCT_Fan/status/1235922873648386049). When I saw Bus 5125 at 15:25, it looked like it was parked at the exact same spot as seen in the picture. I will say this, since the post-October 6, 2019 Booking on weekdays, I have noticed one or two Hybrid buses parked at Tunney's Pasture and Hurdman lay-up for a very prolong period of time with its engines off and occasionally with its four-ways on.

There have been buses (mainly Hybrids) staged at various points in the city including Bayshore, Hurdman, Tunneys, and Millennium to be used for quick bus changes to keep service rolling.

I noticed that at Tunney's.  Couple days ago I took an 80 Merivale/Slack (@ 4:50 AM) and 5058 was stationed with 4447. I came back at around 9 AM and 5058 was still there in the same spot.
