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

They are XD60's for thos order. Unsure if that will be from now on.

Thanks!  I just wanted to be sure.  The wiki says they're XDE60's.  I imagine that will have to be amended...  I assume the powertrain will be Cummins L9 with Allison B500R6?

Well, they don't run on gasoline or LPG or propane, so.....

Okay, Someone just randomly credited them as Diesel Units on the wiki and not Hybrid units. I just wanted to be sure because someone just edited it without a reliable source. It's been argued on this thread whether they are Diesel or Hybrid units.

Are they really diesel only?

No. These are the same as the previous order, XDE60

as for the York university issue, routes 501A and 501C will continue to serve York U with added trips on both after 14:30, route 501 will terminate at VMMC and commuters can take the subway to York U from there

OK Thanks, That means someone provided wrong information on the Brampton Transit wiki page.

I'm not allowed to edit and but could someone please edit the 2018 units back to XDE60 please.

The 2018 order is diesel, not hybrid. They are XD60s. @NewFlyerFan, stop spreading false information.

Hate to be the one to tell you but I’ve driven 1875 numerous times the last 3 weeks, builders plate states it is a XDE60, check my previous posts and for further evidence, the transmission is not like the diesels, these are the same as all other Zum orders, (F,N,R) unlike the diesel novas which have the diesel Allison selector, and just listen to the bus as it pulls off
