Dave Stuart of Welland Transit announced, earlier this week, that January will bring in some new service times.

Effective Sunday, January 6, 2019, buses will run on the hour and half past.

If my "insider" with the company is correct, Sunday services start at 9 and will go until 6:30, with units alternating between routes.

Monday to Saturday will send an elimination of routes 510/511 in favour of services starting at 6:30am (normal routes). Buses will follow the transit model currently in place.

Stuart says the changes come after a 400% increase of ridership in the morning and at night.

His link was just to the search results. I believe those are the buses he's referring to

If you can even classify 1163 as "active". To my knowledge it hasn't gone out in months.

What I'm more curious about is what the other bus to be retired could be as I doubt they'd retire 1144 or 1145 so soon after they were refurbished.

1163 is still active; it was running 505 Lincoln Wellington today.

As for what other unit they could retire, many drivers have told me that they're having problems with the 1146. The 1155 is also in the garage frequently for coolant issues, and the 1149 looks to be on its last legs. It might be one of those.

I have a question for you guys: I thought I just saw a brand new unit in Welland: a Nova LFS 4, numbered unit 1174. It was running 506 Ontario, but only displaying 6.

Quite possible they picked up a new 2019 LFS.

Did 1163 get a replacement unit? Otherwise it may be an expansion unit, or additional maintenance spare.

If it's numbered 1174, I wonder if that means the ex-St Catharines units are internally numbered 1172-1173? Or are there other 2019 LFS...

I posted this, then saw another 2019 LFS, running 501 Broadway. I didn't see the unit number, but I can confirm that there is at least one other new unit.

A fleet list that I received (no VINs unfortunately) show 1950 and 1951 for the Regional fleet as well. Are these in service yet?

I have not known about those, I'll keep an eye out.
