Quick trip to Ottawa yesterday and saw none of the artic hybrids, 40 ft hybrids, and 4th gen diesel artics running. Probably because of the strike it meant less buses running. Hope this dispute be resolved soon.

I've seen the 16xx Artics/40 foot during the week. though I've also noticed the 02xx novas around more often and more of the 40 foot buses (hybrids and 09xx on the 400 rte since the job action started.

1601 to 1603 have full wraps for Red Bull Crashed Ice.  Very similar to the wraps on OC Transpo buses 6500-6504 but not quite the same.

Is 7901 still active in 2017?

I did see it once in late-January right after the start of all those trip cancellations, though not once this month

I spotted a 94xx or 95xx out midday two days ago crossing the Portage bridge into Ottawa.

Spotted an ex-Calgary 913x yesterday turning onto Rideau.

Also spotted 9512 and 9420 today on Rideau.

This week-end is the Québec transit authority hockey tournament in Gatineau, so expect some transit buses from outside the region (stsherbrooke sends à 2016 hybrid)

Well that answers whether any of the 89xx Classics are still around.

Which are the numbers for 2017 artic hybrids and 40 ft hybrids? Are 1704 and 1701 artics?

Yes so far 1701 to 1709 are all Hybrid Articulated buses.  Not sure how many are coming this year but I am looking out for more including any 40 footers

From a facebook group I recall up to 1730 for 40 ft. Can't remember exactly though.

Spotted 1702 and 1706 on the 400 at lunch time today.

So that makes the following reported spotted in service on here thus far:

1701

1702

1704

1705

1706

Glad to hear 7901 has been seen in service a couple of time in the past couple of weeks.

7901 spotted downtown yesterday, I forget what route and didn't get my camera ready in time.

I saw it also.  It was the 85 Cite-des-Neiges.  Spotted at the corner of Wellington and O'Connor.

I had a chance to ride on 1722 this morning on the 27 run.  It has that new bus smell.  1722 is a 40-ft hybrid.  I spotted 1720 and 1721 on the Rapibus corrider yesterday afternoon.  Both of these buses are also 40-ft hybrids.
