Transit videos

Recommended Posts

Looks like Yonge Street and Wellington in Aurora. Seems as though the driver was heading westbound on Wellington and turning northbound on Yonge street. Was that a GO bus? If it was Didn't know they had cameras

Video isn't working, but I can definitely say, by the description, that it is the Wellington/Yonge intersection in Aurora. There's a vacant shopping centre there (used to be a Price Chopper a few months ago), a very nice Canadian mural on the building at the southeast side, and many other stores.

Must be a GO bus, if you watch the video when the driver picks up the phone for the second time you can see his shirt is white and AFAIK only GO drivers wear white shirts.

You might be right, this might be an Orion V. But I don't recall a GO bus making a turn to another street unless he's an OOS.

That would be a Union Station-Newmarket/East Gwillimbury bus. Just east of that intersection is Aurora GO Station, so yeah...if there were passengers on board, I'm sure there would be MANY unhappy people. This intersection always seems to have problems since it's in a tight area, and on Yonge Street immediately south, people are ALWAYS parking on the side of the road, causing a bottleneck. Then again, there's also people who just don't realise that, at a green light, a person doing a right hand turn has the right of way to a left hand turner.

As a note, this is definitely a GO bus judging by the phone and the shirt sleeve.

Found this a while ago, thought I would share. Another Mississauga Transit bus makes it into a music video, it's no other than 5034 (1982 GMDD TA60102N)

Anyone who loves hearing ZF Transmission winding noise, I've found a couple of videos from Austraila.

A nice, long winding version.

The loud version.

New Flyer D60HF with a slight whine (sort of common) + loud transmission (like all the other D60HF's from 5250-5406 and 5408-5509).

This guy has been grabbing all of Trevor's stuff and reposted on his Youtube account, I don't know if he has permission to do that.
