Yeah, some people have been confused with this comment! 

What I'm trying to say, is last Thursday, in Summerstown Ontario, where delivered Nova's stop and get gas, last Thursday there was a YRT/VIVA Nova LFS Artic, numbered 1796! I have checked sources and YRT/VIVA haven't had new Artics since 2017? Does anyone have info on this sighting, or know that the bus was to a different Transit authority?

 

And again, how often does Nova deliver buses out?

 

Thanks all, and sorry for the confusion! 😕

But why would it be numbered 17xx? 2017 is long gone!

Probably bus 1996.

I'll double check tonight, but I'm pretty sure this unit was a 1700-series unit? As @STO_1601 stated about, I was wondering why it was a 1700-series unit, as he said above!

 

Is YRT/Nova destined to get any Nova Arctic buses in the coming months?

I assume you mean YRT/Viva, I thought they were getting Flyer Artics for conventional and LFSA for VIVA

Take a flight and get your own photos. We don't camp outside Nova Bus in the parking lot 365 days a year. I go by there when I am in the area for work, nothing more...

Since I just found out Transit Windsor has 19 buses on order that are probably coming down the line right now, i thought out of curiosity I'd have a look at the plant on google maps. Ive gotta say I was expecting the facility itself to be a lot bigger considering the amount of orders they get from Canadian systems every year! I dont know how you all can see these numbers when there can be that many buses outside awaiting delivery.  I look forward to more sightings later on from the locals(due to our current circumstances) and props to you all for doing so! :)  Also stay safe.

Remember they do build some of the Canadian orders out of Plattsburg New York plant.

I was in St-Eustache Saturday and decided to pass by Nova's factory... Lots of buses parked there but only one not for the STM: Saguenay unit 2002. Among the STM units parked on the Industriel side I could spot the following:

40063 40068 40073 40097 40116 40170 40182
40064 40070 40074 40099 40152 40179 40203
40066 40071 40076 40108 40165 40180 40204
40067 40072 40086 40113 40167 40181 40208

All but 40-208 has the livery.

Attached are a few crappy shots of those 40 series.

I take it they went back on the decision to spec them with the full length roof fairing?

Those buses were part of the ATUQ consortium order that they order with full length fairing, STM buses for fleet "expansion" are ordered without it
