Well there goes the first Orion 1. :D

It happens to buses all the time, and easily fixed.

No but I saw it at the garage today.

Sarnia Transit now uses AESYS signs now. The green flip dots have all been removed.

Rollsigns are still on the older Orion 1`s.

Get this 961 and 975 are both different buses. I thought they were one bus.

I remember riding the Orion V's especially on the Exmouth route about 5 or so years ago.

I'm wondering whether transit agencies would be wanting to purchase any of those 6 buses? Have any sources up in Sarnia indicated if they're considering selling the Classics and V's?

I don't think I've ever seen that fishie around. If I did see a bowl up there, it may have been 791 but as usual, my sight wasn't at its greatest at spotting those fleet numbers at that time. :P

News From Sarnia city councel last night gave the ok for 2 32 foot Low Floor Buses For The New Year

32 feet? There may have been a small typo somewhere. Could've been 30 foot but are going to be 2 on order. Are you sure they're 32 feet? Or 35 feet? I'd say the contenders would be:

Orion with their 30 foot Orion VII or even Orion II's if they're still being manufactured. Probably not as I think about it. The II's are only 26 feet in length.

Blue Bird: Their Ultra LF's would be perfect for Sarnia. Two doors....30 feet in length. BB also constructs 35 ft. models.

El Dorado National: I understand that a normal EZ Rider is 30 feet. I don't think there are such EZ's as 32 feet or even 35 feet.

All in all, we'll just wait and see.

Eldorado does indeed build 32 ft. EZ Riders, Mississauga Transit's are an example.
