- Willco Transportation has brand new IC CE with tinted windows. I am not sure what the fleet number is but the bus can usually be found near the Crowfoot LRT Station around 7:30 AM on weekdays. I also keep seeing a mystery bus in or around Calgary that has no fleet number or company name on it. It's a IC CE with tinted windows.

2750 may be retired soon as it crashed into a house on Monday afternoon.
Depends how much damage was done. We shall wait and see I guess.

Anyways, found this nice old 1940's or 1950's GMC 9500 with what I believe is a Superior body in Swawell, Alberta back on November 11, 2011:

I have been trying to catch a photo of that bus as well. It's got normal Blue Bird style windows that are the same as any other Blue Bird, but they are black framed with tinted glass as well as the pillars between each window that are also painted black. There are two like that IIRC. I believe 2993 is the same as 2994. But 2994 is the one I see around regularly.

I found a First Student Canada bus that looks exactly the same as 2994, but it's number is 2997 and it is based in Airdrie. I found it on Dec 23 and got a few pictures.

I finally got 2994 a few days ago parked down by the Superstore on 130th Ave. in the S.E. Check out the decals near the rear on the top. I have not seen any other First units with this on them before.

Not finding much info on the forums, I've lurked around off and on a bit, but I have some info that should be posted to the wiki regarding a school bus carrier, how does this get done?

There are two 2009 shorter C2s at Stratfordhall numbered 3 and 4 in Vancouver that are planned to be retired by the end of the school year. Come snap some pics of them before they are gone. Go during the weekend or there will be people yelling at you. Number 4 has been having multiple mechanical failures so it may not be there and may be at a local garage.

Anyone know where I could go (or who I could contact) to find Southland's fleet for Medicine Hat, AB? From what I've seen, they are mostly propane, but there are still a few older diesels running.

Your best bet would be to fill out their contact form at http://www.southland.ca/contact.  If you do get the info from them could you shoot me a PM as I am interested to see the fleet for Medicine Hat too!

I tried that, but they just told me how to book a charter and that you could charter school buses, motorcoaches, "executive buses", and minibuses.

When I asked about the fleet itself, no response was given

That's exactly the kind of response I got when I emailed the Calgary staff.
