Looks like at least one of the 22xx-series of Hybrids arrived. 2207 is tracking in testing phase right now. Looks to be testing in the Riverdale area at the moment, (2022-09-14, 18h57). Interesting to see what these units will look like!

Is It indeed the new Nova or could it be a new Arboc that was also on order testing out on the Riverdale route.....?

I have confirmation that 2207 is an Arboc.  I suspect the same for 2208.  The Wiki will need to be amended appropriately.

Do we know whether there is a 2208 yet, or if Cornwall was expecting two (or more) Arbocs this year?

I think the user who originally created the page for 2207-2208 based it off of two Nova LFS HEV being ordered, and assuming they would be numbered directly after the 2021 LFS.

2208 was active (but not in service) on Transsee this morning.

Can confirm 2208 is a Hybrid Nova LFS.  The second one is in the garage but not wrapped/decaled yet.  Also the new fare payment system (TransitFare and Systems SmartCard) is being installed in vehicles but isn’t in use yet.  Driver training is only starting in the next week or two.  The Genfare Odyssey Fareboxes have been around about 2 years now.

I stand corrected.  Though I'm surprised they only got one Arboc for 2022.  I thought they had ordered more...  My mistake.

After years of blue, it's weird to see a Cornwall Transit bus in green.

Hello, If you see 1585 or 1586 running out of service November 5th, that will be a charter bus between 12:00-1:00 in Cornwall, I will send footage here the day after or on the day of charter, Also can anybody tell me if 9881 is still on property.

Green looks way nicer anyways, and is green for promotional reasons of course.

2208 and 2209 entered service today.  2208 on routes 3 & 7, and 2209 on routes 1 & 5.

2209 was sent back to nova for a recall involving the chargers, others may go back soon.

Looks like Cornwall has reinstated the 71 - Express routes, with being out of service for almost three years now. Current routing seems to be the same as before, with the route running East towards SLC & the DEV Hotel, and then west towards Brookdale Plaza & Walmart. The timetable has changed from previous years, with the service starting at 12h30 going East, and the last trip at 16h30 going East. One unit will run in a continuous loop, as most routes with Cornwall. 5 total trips going Eastbound, and 4 trips going Westbound. As of yet, (2022-01-10, 13h14), there has been no formal announcement on their Facebook page, as with the City website. In fact, the website still states the route is cancelled.

Today, unit 2105 was running the new service. 

Further information can be found here:

https://openmobilitydata.org/p/cornwall-transit/1223/latest/route/EXPRESS EAST

and here:

Some other notes for the fleet:

2208 -  661 3BL

1585 has been replated to 373 8BM

1586 has been replated to 661 5BL

How sad that the website has not been updated to reflect the return of the 71!

https://www.cornwall.ca/en/live-here/transit-routes.aspx

With all of the wacky communications they put out on social media, there hasn't been a peep about 71 EXPRESS.  I wonder if they're just doing a trial run to see if the demand is there.

Side note - Is 2209 still out of action?  I haven't seen it in service for quite some time...

2209 has re-entered service on the 71 - Express today.
