Brampton Transit/Züm


Recommended Posts

Spotted a 2020 Novabus being delivered yesterday (Unit 2016), travelling NB on the 410 north of Steeles around 11:30 AM.

Couldn't grab a picture as I was driving, but it looks like this batch was ordered with the new driver window, which I noticed on this unit.

I took a picture of brand new 0301 during my visit to Brampton Transit's Clark Garage back in October 2003.

Do you want to try writing that again, but with punctuation and not being in a hurry this time?   Dan

Just popping in to mention Brampton Transit is now available on Transit55: https://transit55.ca/brampton/ Enjoy

Correct, new window and new recaro seats with 3 point seatbelts ( like cars )

For the three-point seat belts are they now mandatory or is it just an option to replace the standard lap belt.

I’m not 100% sure but I believe going forward it’s a mandatory spec from the MTO, again I’m sure someone else may know better 

Yes its mandatory going forward by Transport Canada. Any vehicles purchased this year, delivered after September 2020 to be precise.

To those than don't know 2007, 2012, 2023, 2022, 2019, 2018 & 3 other 2020 Novas are on the property at sandalwood. (Coming from a photo an operator sent me)

Though considering theres a 2023 BT probably ordered more novas than we thought they would. Which is a good thing anyway

It just dawned on me that you guys have the oldest production Xcelsiors in existents! How are your 2010 buses fairing these days?

I believe the final total is 23, they are typically lined up in order at sandalwood upon delivery and last I’ve seen is 2023, the most in orders seems to go to 23 conventional a year for expansion and replacement

The 2010 XDE40s don’t seem to be showing their age much aside from air pressure issues that seem to plague all early 40ft xcelsiors, as for the 1100s which were part 2010 part 2011 order they are showing their age and I believe some are currently parked for quite some time for major repair. No talks of refurbs planned as of yet

Update regarding the 2020 Nova's

2007, 2011 & 2012 have all entered service, 2007 & 2011 marked the first day on November 6th. From my observations 0216 and none of the remaining active 2003 units have been taken out of service yet, though 0305 & 0306 haven't seen much use since Oct 16th/Sept 25th.

Also thanks to an update from a friend of mine these are the decommissioned D40LF's currently at the back of Sandalwood Garage:

0220, 0402, 0302, 0312, 0218 & 0424

EDIT: 0301 is also decomissioned however it is not at the back of Sandalwood Garage.
