TTC 9701

Oldest bus in each city

Recommended Posts

What would be the Oldest bus in each city?

TTC #2017 GM Newlook from 1981

Mississauga 1989 Orion V #8923

YRT Gm Newlook #7526 from 1975, I think its still around and may be ex-Brampton?

In Hamilton the oldest active buses are the 1986 GM 'Classics.'

Edit: Saw 8601 in operation today. I'd imagine that'd be the oldest bus.

Brantford's #9725, a 1972 GM T6H-4521, is the oldest bus running in Brantford and in all of Ontario :blink: .

The oldest bus in London is #281, 1983 GM Classic, ex-Quebec (LTC has a pretty modern fleet)!

TTC 2017 is actually 1980 since it came from the 8520 series buses.

Actually you're wrong. TTC #2017 was #8533 which entered service in September 1981.

How do you find out the exact month a bus entered service?

Go to f.tang's Toronto buses website here:

http://www.geocities.com/torontobus/index.html

On the left side you'll see a link that says 'TTC vehicle stats' with 'New' flashing under it. You can type in any TTC bus number and it will give you all the stats about that bus.

Oh yeah, my bad. It should've hit me that the 84x D901s are 1981 units, so that 85xx Newlook has to be newer.

Sorry 2153.

Bramptons oldest bus is a 1985 Leyland double decker.

What does that bus do these days sit at the garage and special charters?

Yes.

Although if we really want to get technical, there's still retired 8279 and 8289 (both 1982), which would be the oldest BT buses in the "City" of Brampton :lol:
