I can expect it would look EXACTLY the same as the two 92's Orion V they had before............~~

But the paint job on those ones is the old paint job...we have a new paint job

oh true, less grey on the sides then~~

they really shouldn't retire the three 92's Orion V back then, where they were only 10-12 years old when they get rid of them.............kinda waste~~

Omg i know right! They retired them because the ridership was "too low" and then 10 years later they turn around and buy 5 40footers

I know, it is what a waste!  I remembered my first visit to Sarnia 13 years back, only #922 left in service together with the last 40ft Fishbowl #791, where 921 and 923 were already retired and sitting at the yard for parts already, what a waste when they were only 11 years old(maybe not even when they were actually off the road)............

Ironically, DRT is now wasting their 2003 Orion V and get rid of them at very low age and mileage, and selling them off while Sarnia is picking them up............

No pictures on my end, I was turning right and noticed 164 heading straight in front of me. It looks very similar to the livery on the 16 Nova's, that said I didn't get a great view of the sides so much as the back.

The livery is slightly different. The back is plain white. The lower skirt panels on the sides of the body are gray and the blue stripe does not extend to the bottom of the bus but rather the top of the side skirts. The destination sign did not appear to be working today.

I will be going down there this Summer so I will for sure check the bus out. It seems 164 replaced 062 as well.

Nice, it looks like they left the DRT green trim around the destination sign on as well.

Yes they have, it would be really hard to take it off.

From the pictures Jared provided, the inside is relatively unchanged. Still has "8050" with the two 0's horizontal to make an 8, and all the DRT info signs.

171 entered service today on the 9 and 172 entered service on the 14. I really hope that is where they are gonna put a bigger bus because that route needs it! 

Hopefully 164 will be active when i go there in a few weeks.

164 has been active a lot lately. It was on the 9 almost all of last week and now that the college isnt on strike anymore, it has been doing the College Express everyday this week so far.
