A very odd sighting. A 2014/2015 Nova LFS was spotted in Burlington, out of all places at around 11:25 this morning making a right onto Appleby Line from Mainway, displaying "TRAINING BUS".

Saw it turning onto Dundas eastbound at Walkers Line this morning. Most likely borrowed for PRIDE. Saw it parked at the Admiral Inn on the service road at Walkers Line last night, along with a GO MCI.

They do charters as well like any coach lines. I have seen many in Toronto and on the 401. One did reach the Niagara area at one point years ago.

Thats most likely for warranty/repairs.

Very nice changes. I remember when Guelph still had a pulsed system on 40 minute headways.

Use to jump around from 30 to 40 then 20 and to 15 going back to 20 and 30. 60 minute is every holiday.

We will see what happens as it looks the go ahead is happening. Looks like it will be done right.
