447, 576, and 9702 are retired

447 totalled off in a December 13th collision

576 experienced severe engine problems September 28th, and has since been marked for scrap

9702 failed a safety inspection in April of 2016, and hasn't been in service since

Oh and 9706 blew her engine in December!

That's the CKOM ad wrap, and it is also on 1310. It's a nice green/white wrap, and it actually looks decent on our artics.

No new ads that I can think of really. Seeing quite a few buses wrapped for Hoffmann Kool insurance though.

I should mention that I was wrong about when the ad-wrap was added to 1005. It clearly had the wrap before it's accident as you can see from this picture:

I'm just curious but where do you find out all this information on Saskatoon Transit GMC T6H-5307N?

Sad to see her go... she was a decent runner... Her last day out was January 19th, 2017

Currently, 9502, 03, 9705 and 06 are out of service. Unknown what is happening with these buses.

I've got some connections inside Transit that provide me with updates and whatnot.

What happened to 614? It's barely 10 years old? Was it in an accident?

System failure. It was originally out of service in May 2016, but then re-entered service July 3rd, 2016. It then stalled later that day and hasn't ran since then.
