STO 1725 to 1730 were sitting out front of Nova Bus ready for Delivery. 40 Ft Hybrids

Could this large order of 30+ buses replace all of the remaining classics? We better hurry and try to catch a ride on one before it's too late!

I have not seen any of them today. On the other hand, one of the first new LFS hybrids for TTC, recently completed 3411 is seen at the front of the Nova Bus factory at Saint-Eustache, QC.  

Here is a LFS Artic Demo I got a picture of with the new window.

It depends if the STO is interested in fleet expansion, it also depends what they do with their new garage in Gatineau. They could very well keep a few Classics in storage. I have not been able to procure a fleet roster from them despite being a charter customer for years. It would seem like a wasted investment for them to have purchased those ex-Calgary Classics if they were going to retire them right away. Then again, perhaps those buses were merely a stopgap measure.

I saw an STO Artic hybrid 1706 a few weeks ago. From what I was told, the classics are no longer being rebuilt and being retired as soon as the cost is too great to repair them.

My guess is that the oldest ones will retire first. Since the Calgary classics were recently rebuilt, my guess is that they will be the last to retire, maybe in 5 years.

Have their been any new RTC buses spotted at the factory lately?

Don't think the RTC has any on order for now. They just completed delivery of a rather large order of 36 buses, and also the 23 artic hybrids last year. RTC will have Van Hool hybrids for route 21 though.

Routes 11 and 21 will be merged. Gone will be route 21 and route 11 will be still in service. And that also meaans routes 1, 1a and 111 will be scrapped.

Route 1 remains intact (as it does serve a totally different area) ... Route 21, 1A and 111 are abolished to make place to the new 11

So will the merged routes be served together with the Van Hool hybrids? Or will it be a mix of Van Hool and Nova Bus hybrids?

do any know if the 2018 buses will have a new look or anything new added ?

Based on what I've seen with the Delivery of 21802 at RTL, as well as buses seen at trade shows such as UITP earlier this year... that's a solid nope! Expect more of the same.

Lots of new buses at Nova Bus today including more than a dozen 38-xxx's for STM, a few for Laval, and a few for Windsor.

Will these buses have the new Cummins B6.7 engines like the STOs?
