I'm glad we have a reliable source for this thread. Thanks Bernie.

Here is a update to buses being retired, seen with plates removed today numbers 416, 424, 521, 523, 549, 551, 552, 553, 672, 679, 685, 701 & 702, as for the rest that is to be retired that depends each day on what is running then. I was wrong on the LFS ,time will tell what ones are next.

What shape are 701-702 in?  Would be nice if CK Transit got one or both for route 1 and 2. Help with the overcrowding 

They both have had a electrical problems, #701 did see some service in early 2017 then it disappeared,  #702 has not seen service well over a year,  both have sat at the garage since then.

I just noticed that TW put some info about the proposed new terminal at the hospital site on the west end, the tayfour campus, on their website.

If this goes through, I think the terminal should be an island terminal with the island itself going north/south, it would be most beneficial for the buses in regards to turning etc. 
I also think if this terminal gets approved and built, it should be called the Tayfour Terminal.  Even though I feel personally that the terminal should be on or close to sandwich street, but thats me.

Bernie, have you heard or seen anything about the final 2 buses of the 26 buses yet? If they've shown up etc.

Well I just noticed on TWs website that they added more trips southbound on the Dominion 5, and also made those added trips northbound as EXPRESS back to WITT using the highway system to sandwich st and onto university ave.

The extra dominion 5 southbound buses does not go back north.  Ive seen them go out of service at St Clair while i was there transferring between 25 and the 7. They probably do that so that they can be back downtown for another extra southbound run.

8023 & 8024 are now wrapped with Town of LaSalle.

Hm.

Good pic, but kinda disappointed to see a tacky wrap rather than a thoughtful paint scheme.

In any case, glad that transit in La Salle is taking off. Will be curious to see how it evolves...

Even though the 2018 LFSes have pretty much taken over the Tunnel Bus lately, there are still occasions when a different bus will be on at least one of the runs. For example, today 2013 XD40 632 was spotted on a Tunnel Bus run in Detroit.

I think it basically goes to any bus that can get its engine started. I've noticed as late Orion VIIs being used there.
