Can confirm that there is severe front-end damage. Attached the tweets.

A car clipped the bus and caused the bus to crash into the shelter.

 

Daydreaming car driver??😒 hopefully theyll release the dash cam footage

But wiki says they only ordered two these year…

They want to provide a range of available numbers even if it is only two. XE40 units are also affixed with a e beside their unit number. Like e2201 to indicate it is an electric bus to North Division. 

2206 to 2240 is blocked off for the XD40 conventional bus order.

2240 to 2264 is blocked off for the XD60 conventional bus order.

Viva buses on the other hand, last few batches started at around xx70 or xx71. First two xx beside the number is the year. 26 are coming requiring enough room to avoid overflow into the 23xx section if more units are planned for next year.

That "E" prefix only started due to some mishap at the Newmarket garage...

You have to remember that the XD40 and XE40 share the same design, but have a different energy source. A mistake can happen very easily between the two if someone isn't paying attention to what they are working on.

I know that...but there's a difference...XE40s have a full roof-line...

I believe it may be moreso for dispatchers etc to easily decipher an electric bus from a diesel bus than a driver or mechanic.

Actually, more of a car trying to turn into the plaza where left-turns are not permitted. Especially when that section isn't raised and sometimes used as a turnaround point for emergency vehicles. 

That bus is toast.

YRT 1921 & 1922 (The two sole LFSe's to date) have finally returned to service since the Summer (likely from warranty work at Nova)

 

Do these have paint peeling issues too on the lower half of the bus?
