Cobourg Transit

Recommended Posts

D40LF   

When I was there recently one of the drivers told me that the two buses I saw, the Blue Bird and Orion V were the newest equipment.

Does Cobourg have any new buses for 2008. if so they would have replaced the ELF`s?

Stopped over in Cobourg yesterday along with general_682002 and got shots of their Blue Bird and Orion V at Northumberland Mall:

Looks like they still haven't put the fleet number on the Orion V.

They did, it's on the rear. 904 is their number.

I herd there was also a 2006 Ford Cutaway #905 there too.

I herd there is a wiki page that says that. :D

So that means the Blue Bird and the Orion V are retired now?

Unless the 5 year old blue bird bus blew up. I don't think it will be retired for some time.

The Orion 5 hopefully is not retired. anyone know?

I saw both 906 & 907 last week. I think they entered service without any numbers applied, I didn't see any when I saw them on the 22nd. I've got some photos, but for some reason I can't upload them to the board, neither the attachment editor or the 'upload an image' feature is working.

Embedded rear destination signs, don't see that everyday. Nice photos. :D

Interesting, would like to know what brand is their electronic sign.

I see a double tail pipe. I like that and the livery. Great photos thanks for sharing

Are they expanding the service?

One fleet expansion, one backup fleet like the Orion V.

Since it's Coach Canada who contract the driver and maintenance, they have to use cutaway if one of their HD buses is in a shop for a day.
