Whatever bus is working on the Riverdale route today is not tracking.  I assume it's either 2096 or 2097...

It's 1175. 1175's tracker does not track to the public. Not on the 61 - Community Service East/West, nor on the 4 - Riverdale.

Just a few observational sightings on the new 21xx-series of Nova Bus LFS' with Cornwall.

Starting of with drivetrain, same as the last batches. Cummins L9 with an Allison B400R. Destination signs. This series features white-LED Luminator Horizon SMT Destination Signs in the front, side and rear. This series also features the old-style drivers window, same as the 15xx, 17xx and 18xx-series orders. The steering wheel is a 3-spoke design from Nova, different from the past series of Nova's with Cornwall. Interior wise, complete revamp. The wheelchair flip-up seats are all green, and the rest are blue backing, with green middle inserts.  The bike racks are the same, being a Sportworks DL2 used on all of the conventional-route buses. For the paint, more of a wrap, this series is a FULL revamp of the past schemes. The front is full blue, tapering to a line on the curbside and streetside of the bus, with a green stripe underneath, same as the 20xx-series of Arboc's. Featuring the new Cornwall Transit Way to Go logo on the rear 3/4 panel of both sides. They feature the new transmission intercooler (circular vent on the rear streetside of the unit). Cornwall Transit, and ...Way to Go are featured above the framed-windows on both sides. Rear wise, virtually the same excect for the placement of the fleet number decals. Fleet number decals are under the top vent to the left, and Cornwall Transit...Way to Go logo's are on the right. Cornwall Transit web address is placed on the top of the top vent.  New vents are placed above the indicators, as standard with Nova Bus orders. The NovaBus logo is placed under the front fleet number, in a stylish grey fashion, popping nicely with the blue.


License Plates are as follows. 

2102 - 261 0BL

2104 - 660 2BL

 

2102 and 2104 have been the only two units in service, so far. (2021-05-09)

I haven't seen 1895 out for a while.  Is it still in the shop....?

1895 is now back into service, starting off on the 3 - Brookdale this morning at 06:15, and is still out in service. 

 

For anyone who is wondering what the new Nova units look like, Boyer Signs (who wraps Cornwall Transit's buses) has posted an update on them, with before and after pictures. https://www.facebook.com/boyersigns/posts/1876652889158504

2105 made its inaugural run on the 06:15 1 - Pitt this morning, then was switched out in favor of 1792 within 4 hours of run time.

 

Side note: 1585 was running the 18 - Business Park this morning, and is continuing its duties on the afternoon 18 - Business Park. Although not rare, it is very unusual for a Nova to be running a morning, or midday Business Park run. The last time was a Nova was running a Business Park route was Tuesday, February 9th, 2021. 1794 was placed on the 12 - Business Park. Soon to be a common sighting when the '98s and the '08/'09's are retired. The Nova's can sometimes be found on the late night Business Parks. An example being 1585, 1586 and 1792. These units were running the late night 12 - Business Park on April 19th, 2021.

Do they actually use 3 buses for late night Business Park run....?  I thought it was only one bus.

That is what was running that evening. 1585, 1586 and 1792 on the late-night 12 - Business Park 3, with 1895 on the 1 - Pitt/McConnell, 1793 on the 2 - Sunrise/Cumberland, and 1794 on the 3 - Montreal/Brookdale.

2101 made its debut in service yesterday, on the 14:45 run of the 2 - Sunrise, replacing 2104.

 

On a side note, Cornwall has listed ALL of the 08xx-series and 09xx-series ElDorado's for auction, meaning the 98's will hold on for just a bit longer.

Any update on the Orion Vi's? I have noticed on transee that the business routes have been using lfs. 

9882 was placed on the 18 - Business Park last Tuesday, May 25th. The 98's are expected to be with Cornwall for another year, but are on spare, as-needed duty.

Some updates from Cornwall and the fleet:

 

2101’s license plate is as follows - 261 1BL

 

9882 was in service on the 12 - Business Park Extra yesterday (2021-06-01) . Although a common sighting two months ago, this is an uncommon occurrence now with the older batches of LFS’ on the route and the new batches in service. The 98xx-series are now on a as-needed, spare basis.

(Example 2021-06-01): 1585 on the 12, 1792 on the 18.

 

Lastly, 1792’s driver side front panel has finally been re-wrapped. 1792 had been in an accident 3 years, was repaired and the crushed driver side panel where the mirror and small window were, was repaired and left white without a blue stripe. This made 1792 stand out from the rest of the Nova’s, as this single panel was left blank, without a stripe. This panel has now been re-wrapped, with the Cornwall dark-blue stripe, and blends in with the rest of the 15xx, 17xx, 18xx-series.

Cornwall will be purchasing 2 Nova LFS buses for delivery in 2022, which will replace 2 1997 Orion VI buses.

This order of Nova LFS buses will be BAE hybrid buses subject to ICIP funding approval. Should the funding be approved, these 2 buses along with 1 bus purchased each year in 2023-2026 will be BAE hybrids.

Cornwall Transit has once again, changed the route number system on one of their routes. The old 18 - Business Park is now the 17 - Business Park. Save for the name change, everything is the same as before. Same route, same destination signs, same as before. The change came on Monday of this week, (2021-06-21). To recap, it was the 19 - Business Park before 2020-12-14, then was switched to the 18 - Business Park, along with a new route. (for further info, visit the comment posted on page 27 of the Cornwall Transit forum). Then, on Monday of this week (2021-06-21), the change came.

 

To recap, the 18 is now the 17, with no changes.
