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.

614 is looking pretty sad... Drivers seat and many other parts are stripped out of it

Access 0962 looking retired as well. Stripped of parts

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.

How many 95's and 97's are left now? How many have been retired? I would also laugh if the Classics outlast the 95's and 97's haha.

Can confirm that 614 is indeed retired... :( 

615 to 617 pulled from service... the batteries have finally died in them after 10 years. Costs too much to replace them. They'll make good parts buses though.

I find it interesting that the batteries only last ten years. Is that normal?
