Yes I see that, I'm just surprised their provincial regulations would allow that.

They seem to be having wheelchair accessible buses as not important.

there is a mini bus door 2 door service that services the st.johns metro area that is run by the city of st.johns sepertly and before the city took over metrobus in 1958 from a private owner. and there has been talks of putting ramps and bike racks on the new orders sometime in the futurre after metrobus settles into its new home next year!

Look at the front and rear door on the bottom ledge, no ramp.

Hows those pics of 0859 might be another series but looks the same!

Just curious as to if you could get a interior shot of one of those LFSs? Please and thank you.

Thanks for those shots, that seatting layout seems so efficient without a wheelchair spot.

iT TIS THEY BOUGHT THE 3RD GEN FOR THE WHEELCHAIR RAMP AND SOMEONE NEVER DID THE RESEARCH! TWE CANT FIT THE CENTSABILL IN WITH THE RAMP SO WE NEED NEW FAREBOXES OR NO MORE NOVAS!!!!!

I think the GFI Odyssey fareboxe would be just perfect for you guys! Nova can make a little space specially made for this kind of farebox, like they did to the STM! :huh:

You can fit a farebox no problem when you have a ramp in front, no matter what! But I can see they are now having issues because they currently have BEA Farebox but Brantford doesn't have any problem on their LFS!

Sorry, I've check the guy's video and it turns out it does have GFI Cents-a-Bill farebox but it has a BEA farecard reader!

You might check your caps lock next time.

There are several system have Novabus and they don't have problem having their GFI farebox installed and many are aware of it, unless they have a layout issues around the drivers area!

Ya i know we are getting new fareboxes! but they are looking at just new cents a bills! we just need a smaller base too!

The base on our fareboxes are too wide for the ramp it sticks out over the corner of the ramp!

I must be missing something here.. why exactly are they unable to use the Centsabill farebox with a wheelchair ramp?

We are now testing the BEA The Smart Farebox!

That explains why your 3rd gen LFS cannot accomodate the BEA farebox.

I've been sorting through my Flickr photos. They date back to June, 2005. Never had a chance to ride the Orion 5s, but rode quite a few Fishbowls & LFS's:
