The wraps are just for public outreach and not for dedicated bus service

TTC can manage to keep certain buses on certain routes. Its a matter of trying or not.

But why would they? It makes no difference what buses are on those express routes.

He means route 900 Airport Express specifically, it's a difference because of the luggage racks. The TTC works hard to keep buses on specific routes if they want to. That's all he meant

I'm aware of the 900 Airport buses. All the rest are the same and an outside wrap makes no difference to where those buses operate.

It makes no difference to those already taking the route or the person driving the bus but it does advertise to those that occasional or non transit user that something new is here.
