Niagara Falls Transit


BCT-3122-D800-10240

Recommended Posts

the new people mover system will be split between NFT and the Parks Commission- NFT will operate the Blue and Red Lines and the NPC will operate the Green Line along the Niagara Parkway. The existing Orion units with the NPC will I assume be retired by the end of the year

Just to clarify, will Orion IVs see service this year or will they be completely replaced by the Novas in April?

The NPC Novas are supposed to be delivered in late March/early April as NFT will begin getting theirs at the end of February, so I imagine the IVs may be around to start the season.....anybody's guess right now

just an update....all four remaining Classics have had their licence plates and fareboxes removed and I assume will be towed out of the NFT yard within the next few weeks to make room for the People Mover units

yeah, i have been told last week all Classics including 8937 have been retired, pretty much ends the rollsign era in the Falls. Also, counterpart 8936 will be given to the Niagara Falls Fire Dept. for training exercises, which means it will be destroyed anyway :(

i was just told by a mechanic this morning it's three Classics going to the Fire Department; on another note NFT Garage staff are in Montreal doing the final inspections on the People Mover units... probably start looking for them next week

three? oh either way it's going to hurt hard if 8372 or 8937 are sent there to be destroyed anyways.....:(

I've been told starting mid to late next week start looking for the Nova Artics on the NFT property; no idea if they will have a pre-applied livery or if they're going to be all-white at first

i'll bet they will arrive all white, then have the livery applied later like the 09 Nova fleet and the new Orions (both city and regional)

I'd assume, since one page back, it was said that nova artics were spotted road testing in Laval, that they would already be in livery.

That bus 2369, it has a automated announcer with a huge display screen, does it ever works?
