Nope. This is the 409. The bus in the video is 8944 which was on the 52 run 16. The only strange part is the run is out all day and is transitioning from 52B to 52F. Perhaps it was late and took the 409.

It was out all day today. The video is likely from Wednesday when it was deadheading to the garage after finishing on 952. As mentioned already, 52/952 buses that start or end at the Airport or in Malton use the 409 to deadhead.

TTC TransSee
3757 is out as a 201 Bluffer's Park 

Eglinton bus on an Eglinton route.  Nothing special about it...

("RARE/ULTRA RARE" e-bus on route that normally doesn't see e-buses doesn't count...)

I'm also pretty certain it's been mentioned several times in the past in this thread that TransSee sightings aren't considered special.  You're not seeing the bus IRL, you're simply seeing its number on a web tracking page.

I never understood the "Same bus from Same Division running Same route" is not special. 

I've seen more RADs from different divisions on the 54 Lawrence East more often than say Orions going on 66 this year.

That said, if its true, I'm more curious on how the eBus perform on steep hills. I remember Orion OGs DD50EGRs were soft-banned from the route because TTC didn't have confidence in their ability to go up the hills. If it performs well, I wonder if could we see this kind of occurrence more often since diesels would use up more gas shifting in to 1st gear and revving their way up.
