7569 on the route 79 two nights ago on an all night bus key

That would be 73 k66 that comes out of the garage in the afternoon around 1530 or so and starts in at Whitehorn as rte 73 to Chinook before going southwards to work the route 79 for the rest of the evening.

Notes from March 21, 2012:

#7579 was parked on the east wall with no rear plate.

Spotted #7579 earlier this afternoon on the route 23 at 36th St. and 50th Ave. S.E. with a new rear plate on it. I was unable to get close enough to see the plate however.

Interesting to see a shot of it without the heater. Route 111 was the Blue Arrow service to Glamorgan right?

Yes. It was the off peak service at the time. IIRC, the 111 did not run during peak hours, and the 108 and 112 were peak hour routes. I await corrections!

Well that makes sense actually, because the 112 still doesn't go into Glamorgan during rush hour runs, staying on 46th Avenue.

Here's a couple photos of #7576 at Anderson on Route 96. This bus seems to have broken route signs (unless the driver didn't enter anything into the route signs), and only displayed the small "Route 96" in the destination box with nothing in the route signs.

Here's a couple photos of #7576 at Anderson on Route 96 or any interline route for that matter. This bus seems to have broken route signs (unless the driver didn't enter anything into the route signs), and only displayed the small "Route 96" in the destination box with nothing in the route signs.

Alot of guys do that with the 92/96 interline, or any interlining bus for that matter, with vultron buses. 000 in the route number, 092 or 096 in the route code. That way, only have to switch off 4 numbers rather then between 3 different codes (0D5 for McKenzie, 01E for Mckenzie Towne and 2E4 for Anderson station.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but sounds like a couple of dozen of these 1995s have been sold to Winnipeg and will start being prepped shortly.

Do we have enough spares to just get rid of 20+ units ?

Oh and did I mention that the retired ones, numbers 7553, 7554, 7556, 7557, 7559, 7560, 7561, 7562, 7565, 7566, 7568, and 7569 all have signs in the windshields that state "SOLD. DO NOT PUT INTO SERVICE." They have all had their decals, fareboxes, and Radio/CAD systems removed and most have had their plates removed. They still have their stripes on them though.

So I guess we didn't need 20 units after all!

I wonder if in the coming sign up they will cut back on 40 ft work

I heard Edmonton Transit!

ETS theoretically reduced their requirements by 49 buses. Granted, some of those service hours went right back into peak periods, other ours went to off peak (late night bus service).

They are reporting it has a massive capital savings as they don't need to purchase growth buses for a certain period. Although, while growth buses have been in the budget the past few cycles, they've always been an unfunded item. As a result, if it wasn't a funded item, it's not really a "savings".

I'd be very (pleasantly) surprised if it was Edmonton picking up used buses.

POSITIVE CHANGE INITIATIVES The implementation of the MinBus module will result in Capital and Operating budget savings for the City of Edmonton. There will be 49 fewer busses required to run the current level of service. These 49 buses are to be re-invested into 2016 – 2018 service packages resulting in a net Capital Savings of $27.5M.

Are they still sending some to Winnipeg Transit, or was that a hoax?
