I hope everyone has had a chance to calm down. Please keep in mind moving forward: do not antagonize other members and do not contribute to a thread's decline. Simply report bad behaviour, and the adm

All units to be operated by Southwest (which rules out the 90), will be used on the 20 for now.

Brand new oneRide machines are finally being installed along the new Rapidway stations, and they've done a fairly major design overhaul.

On another note, the stop numbers were changed with the June 30th service changes so the 97xx numbers will stay with Viva on the rapidway, but produces a small side effect. The next bus screens between Valleymede and East Beaver Creek only display Viva arrivals, as route 1, 90B and 300 use the new 6xxx number assigned to the curb stop.

Some of the YRT branded van hools were being used for the special olympic charters today. Spotted the following on Don Mills Road -> 501, 503, 504, 505, 508, 514... seemed to all be travelling to/from Seneca Newnham. Some of the signs saying "Richvale CC"., "Special Olympics"., "Charter"., and "Not In Service" with a window sign such as Seneca and Ray Twinney.

5207 was spotted as well.

Got a crappy picture of one of the YRT VanHools (509). You can see them from far away, looks like a D40LF with a huge white hump.

Coincidentally, caught them going both ways in the opposite direction (northbound at 7 PM, southbound at 10:30) on the 404. Shame I was busy, I would've chased after them. :P

Any division decals on them yet?

PS: 509 is ex-5139.

Confirming that 502 was 5109.... Also 5139 is now 509...

Just sayin..... :P

I wasn't able to take a look at the door side, but I assume it'd be there already...

Nothing posted yet..... But Southwest is exclusively running them.... they may be staying there....

You forgot 5146 there.... My personal theory is that Viva will be keeping 5145 and 5146 because they both sport aftermarket "Nova" style front bumpers (as do 5127 and 5142)

But we will find out soon enough, because 5145 has gone for its rebuild....

5146 has been reported as refurbished. If that was correct, the list looks more like

506 (from 5119: 100% chance of conversion)

510 (from 5141: 100% chance of conversion)

512, 513 (from 5144, 5145, 5149: 67% chance of conversion)

515, 516, 517, 518 (from 5151, 5154, 5156, 5157, 5158: 80% chance of conversion)

520 (from 5160: 100% chance of conversion)

Updated the list of refurbishments on the Wiki... we're down to 29 non-refurbished buses, so 10 Viva refurbs and 19 YRT conversions to go.

5146 has been rebuilt, and its front fleet numbers have been replaced (again) in the proper position with the newer slimmer font.
