Saw this bus going EB at highway 7 east of Bayview. Does anyone have any info on it? 

Destination sign says "See sign below"

It was probably coming from MCC at Jane and Highway 7. They've had a few random buses there, usually US ones

See Sign Below isn't a typical YRT exposure so it's not for YRT/VIVA

Looks like an LFS-A HEV demo without the roofline.

Brampton 2151 was on 26. While Brampton's electric buses usually go on the 26, this is the first time I've seen a NOVA in service.

 

Also, around 6:20-6:30 I saw GO MP40 #615 hauling 4 (yes, four) coaches North from Langstaff.

Yes, the Richmond Hill line has been using 4-car trainsets since May. Even with the service increase back to 5-6 trains per direction, the majority of those trains are 4 cars.

See Sign Below is a destination sign that is used by the MTA in NYC

Could this be some sort of MTA demo for them that is In canada for some reason?

Here's a random question that I've been pondering:

does each RAD driver get assigned their own bus, or does the relief driver take over the originally dispatched bus? If it's the latter, what's the procedure if the relief driver shows up and the bus is currently out on a route with its driver?

They get assigned their own bus. 

Here's an example of how it looks like (sorry for the bad pic lol)image.thumb.png.8663824a6934891f186458c3bafd35bf.png
