I was looking at the roster for OnDemand vehicles...  I'm sure that with the expansion of OnDemand during the pandemic that DRT has more than 5 ProMasters, no..?

No. DRT only has 5 promasters 

Aboute 70% of OnDemand operations is contracted out to Voyago.

DRT Does not use them for OnDemand service with any regularity, these vehicles are for specialized services only

I see. I only mentioned it cause I see them being listed for OnDemand as well.

@J. Hollingsworth

Do you know if DRT plans to reinstate the 600 series Uxbridge routes (the ones that went to Pickering) as well as maybe having a route that connects to YRT Cornell Terminal (which was supposedly route 930)?

At this time, I highly doubt DRT has plans for any reinstatement of the 601, or 603, but who knows

As for Cornell, a route is planned that will travel from Pickering Parkway Terminal to Cornell via Kingston, Brock, Taunton, Whites Road and Highway 7 though no number is assigned to this route anymore.

In addition to DRT ProMasters,

there are:

- Ford Fusion Hybrids

- Toyota Corollas 

- Toyota Camry Hybrids

- Toyota Sienna (WC)

- Dodge Grand Carravans (WC)

So are those vehicles outfitted with Presto readers?

Starting Tuesday, I noticed there will now be 3 branches of the 901 PULSE Simcoe. 901 (main), 901B (Oshawa Center) and 901C. It's quite confusing how it works as some 901B/901c will start/terminate at durham college north campus but others will start/terminate at windsfield farm drive.

Also the interlines are changing such as some runs on the 920 will interline with the 423. The 319 will be part of some interlines on the 302A.

There's also one other notable interline. There's a morning 211 run that will interline on the 110/120.

Also they seem to be consolidating the 410 as it's own run (with the exception of morning).
