Basically it was the side seat opposite side of bus right? So one facing back behind driver instead of how the others in fleet are? 

Yup that's right

I don't understand why they haven't bothered to fix the seating so that it would be the same as the rest of the order.

2101 current only because of the higher back seats at the front of the bus and there's no pointless rear-facing seat.

TransLink has put a trademark on the word "SkyBus", someone found this document on the government website. Grain of salt as to what this could really mean though

Interesting find. Maybe an express service to YVR? (Which would be odd as the Canada Line does a great job of that) 

Or maybe even Abbotsford?

My guess is a possible name for the burnaby mountain (SFU) gondola, which has been brought up a lot recently. Certainly nothing confirmed of course.

The Community Outreach Bus (7112) is parked in the retirement line at RTC with the dead Orions.

Finally dead? Unless they are parking it there until they have it's new fate? 

 

95-2020. That's 25 years of it not in dead tracks. Either as compass bus, community outreach bus. 

Maybe translink should keep one of each type of bus from now on in their own museum to remember all the good ol' units from the good ol' days like trams?

Should Translink really be selling these units, given that they've let out all these harmful fumes?

I think all of these have already been sold, so that would answer your question. They were all in the auction lot by the Canada Line OMC in 2017 and they all disappeared by the next year. Most of them were purchased for resale by Repo.com, Landsea Tours bought a whole bunch (but then they have buses with the infamous ASTronic transmission, I think), some went out of province, and at least two went stateside. One unit that was sold (or resold) to a local operator ended up catching on fire:

It has been what, nine years since TransLink crudely cut holes in wraps? Last time I saw something like this was on an ex-Shaw company car. Last time TransLink did this was when they scrapped the HCNG C40LFs.
