Port Hope Transit has recently taken delivery of 3 new ProMaster CS-2 buses. They were obtained as part of the Metrolinx TPI, and are partially funded with federal PTIF money; the municipal contribution comes from their Provincial Gas Tax reserve fund.

The buses are numbered 801-803, with fleet numbers displayed on the rear door only. Judging by how they reuse fleet numbers, the 2012 Arboc (also numbered 803) must have been retired by now. The staff report below mentions they have a maximum passenger capacity of 7. To my knowledge, Port Hope is the only system using these buses in conventional scheduled service.

That is very interesting thanks for the heads up. Chimnissing Transit also uses a ProMaster for their service. Unsure if it is the standard van door or not. 

Sarnia Transit 1710 & 1711 are usedin regular service at times as well.

Chimnissing uses a standard ProMaster van with the standard door.

Thread bump:

Back in August 2018, I recall seeing Port Hope Transit 141 in service on route B. I'm not sure if it's still operating or if one of the ProMasters replaced it

Thats not a thread bump... The Chevrolets are so far still active alongside the Promasters.

Thanks, I'm new to the site and the thread hadn't been updated since March

As far as I know, both 141-142 are still around, along with the three ProMasters (801-803).
