While it may be rare seeing as it's mainly operated by EZ Riders, Id' suppose that considering that it won't be long until 40 footers take a bigger stronghold of that route knowing the fate of the EZ's.

i took that pic because i saw a hybrid along with 1011 on the 48

 

i remembered seeing xd40 when i used to go to west credit secondary school during class when im in the classroom facing battleford rd

He's just putting random garbage out for his own sakes.

Wraps on streetcar are normal and should have gone in wraps.

97A is used all the time. Maybe some buses got away during the reprogramming.

ALRVs have been showing up on the 504 recently as the 501 needs less of them with the shorten route. They'll be even more common during the summer when the entire 501 is bussed. Sometimes the ALRVs even end up in Distillery Loop.

Miway have random buses everywhere these days. 40 ft buses on 30 ft routes are rarer but wrong colour buses are quite common.

Yup i agree with the miway paragraph you put on, remembered seeing the 29 and 48 use xd40, but rarer seeing a hybrid on 48

This very interesting and unusual sighting made me create this account.

Around 7:20 Wb on the Gardiner at Dufferin I saw what appeared to be a 2 axle old look (?) gillig (98% sure) covered double decker bus with a grey/brown and orange wrap for Nike (not quite sure what it said).

I was wondering if anyone else saw this bus and can confirm my sighting.

Got sent this photo of a chartered TTC LFS Artic on Yorkville Avenue. Not sure what the custom sign is supposed to mean.

Hey... I saw that on the 5A yesterday around 18:35... Nice shot.

The only thing that comes up is a picture of someone bowling.

Based on the recent Instagram photos with that hashtag I'm guessing that artic was used to take a couple and their guests from the Four Seasons Hotel to the AGO for the wedding. It appears the groom and bride's names are Dan and Jojo, hence the # used.

Once common but now extremely rare sighting

TTC 1308 on 191 Highway 27 Rocket

Had a conversation with driver he said "hybrids suck on highways".

I was on that bus and saw it went up to 70km/h maximum while on the 427

That run got a changeover for 8442 by 11:30am

First new LFS for TTC in their 2017 order, displaying "Line 2 Shuttle Bus" more than 500 km from where it should be. It is still unpainted without the number, but without doubt this would be in the new livery. This was taken at the exit of A-640 and Boulevard des Promenades in Deux-Montagnes as it heads back to the Nova Bus plant.

Also note the new doors much like those on YRT's conventional LFS.
