Buses #7937, #7950 and the others buses you mentioned: 6 ES buses, 2 COVID buses and 4 EMS buses are still active in the TTC roster as non-revenue buses. Only 8 are retired from the roster.

So does it mean those non-revenue buses could come back in as an active vehicle?? They might retire in a year or two so I think the chance is mere

These sidelined units are currently parked at 1810 Markham: 1231 1306 1532 1536 1550 1560 1658

Checked on these yesterday they are all ok, all had presto readers and nothing saying retirement from what i could tell. There is a nova hev there too. A common misconception with yall is that you think 1810 = death. Thats not the case its just storage for buses that may have mechanical issues.

I had a feeling hence why I selectively used the term "sidelined"

Do you think when will they keep OG Hybrid (1000-1149) and OG non-hybrid (7900-7979, 8000-8099) in service until?

and do you think which one will be retired first? 

I'm guessing non-hybrid one since those are the only fleet sets without the new painting (That's why it is really rare to see any vehicles with new liveries in central and south Etobicoke) while pretty much all Hybrids are repainted. 

I think only 1002 and 1148 retired for OG Hybrid so far.. That leaves 148 out of 150

For non hybrid,

7900-7905 were pulled out from the active roster and converted to TPS vehicle.. and two of them got vandalized during the Raptors championship parade and retired.. and 7906 and 7908 replaced those vandalized vehicles. 

7907, 7911 and 7939 were sold to Sault Ste. Marie

7929, 7936, 7953 were pulled out from the active roster and converted to event support bus.. 

7955-7958 were pulled out from the active roster and converted to EMS transport unit.

7953 and 7961 were converted to COVID-19 patient transport unit. 

8045, 8058, and 8095 were retired due to serious accidents. 

SO 24 non-hybrids are retired so far. 

 

Wondering when are they going to be active until.. 

Just wanna correct a few things:

Only 1002 and 1137 are the retired OG Hybrids.

7929 and 7936 were withdrawned entirely after suffering an engine failure in late 2018.

7953 and 7961 were converted to COVID transport units. 

You are correct about 8058 and 8095 being involved in a collision, however 8045 suffered an electrical fire, so it wasn't really an accident.

They are less likely to return to revenue service and most likely to be decommissioned after they are done with their use.

This has probably been mentioned already but 1002 is retired. Found its VISION screen and multiple things from it at Duncan. Even says scrap bus, lol20210618_094025.thumb.jpg.04120bca4917c323daf2b79b74615b40.jpg

EDIT:  1002, engine has been completely taken out20210618_120534.thumb.jpg.32925e05310a0e74311bfd72e67dc632.jpg

EDIT #2: closer up of 1002 20210618_150514.thumb.jpg.a28c6a0e7380bb104076e85b9ebdc597.jpg

I didn't see it at Hillcrest yesterday so its probably still at MTD

It’s still at Mt Dennis. I’d put it under missing in action first until it’s confirmed. Also, 1035 will be in purgatory because it blew the differential last night. It died running in
