Ex-GO Coaches


38 Highland Creek

If you see some MCI-102s with different liveries, I spotted some by Kingston Rd. (two traffic lights east of Port Union) up on that hill where they sit. These buses have been preserved for when sports teams need to use them. The buses owned by a name I couldn't remember were spotted somewhere else, e.g. in Muskoka during the Cranberry Festival at Bala. Can you give me more examples of which ex-GO buses you spotted and what they said on their sides?

Those would be Cullingford Coaches and Caribbean Queen buses. Not all of the MCIs are Ex. GO. In fact only just one may be. The other ex. GO buses are Cullingford's D40Ses.

also some company in NYC used a few ex GO MCI for Airport runs

Can-ar bought a few and they're used on Palace Pier and Palace Place shuttles from Union Station, replacing the old re-capped MC-9's (also ex GOs).

MTB had a bunch as well, don't know what happened to them...

Can't find the other topic for this, but... the Hard Rock Cafe has a sightseeing bus, had a look today and its ex GO 1464, license plate BM8 750. All the former green parts are painted over in yellow.

can be seen from either lakeshore boulevard, or the gardiner, around cherry street.

Believe it or not, one 102 has made it to British Columbia. It is being operated on oriental tours out of Metro Vancouver. If I ever get a chance I'll see if I can get a fleet number for you. It is still in GO livery but the GO Transit decals have been removed. BTW, it is also sporting the new British Columbia olympic licence plates.

I saw a "Cullingford" bus heading westbound Hwy 7 at Yonge this morning. It was one of those old GO newmarket "B" buses (the same ones YRT bought a few of then retired). It looked weird and I didn't see any number on it.

Could it be an Orion I? If it was all white it was possibly ex GO 1125, which is used for York U shuttles along with the Orion I CNG (another ex GO/TTC unit).
