Should also be known two new units for the Char-A-Van service were bought last year. Units 2032-33 and they are Ford Transit 350HD's. Here's 2033 this afternoon.

In reading the Overland Custom Coach website, I have determined what this is. It's a Glaval Bus Commute body on a Ford Transit chassis.

Back in Niagara this week. Went riding on the WEGO Red and Green lines. Rode multiple bus and I’m shocked on how low kms those novas have especially on the green line. For being 9 years old they have an average of 220,000 kms. 
 

the green line is not going to the floral clock. Last stop is the butterfly conservatory.

Also next year is the last year of the 10 year contract I’m sure it will get renewed.

2195 is at MTB fully refurbished.

Does this mean that Mississauga Bus Group no longer has a contract with NFT? I've seen pics of 5204 at Mississauga Bus Group ( assuming they were the ones who converted it from WEGO to NFT)

Sounds like a busy year for Niagara Falls. For the refurbishment of the WEGO units. Would they retain the WEGO branding or be branded for Niagara Falls.

(excuse for not posting this in the right thread, but) 

 

The other day, I was a video from Gatineau, QC, Canada (from the TV station's Facebook page) and to my own eyes - I saw a brief shot of a (retired, possibly) Niagara Falls Transit Orion VII bus - parked at an unknown place in the Aylmer sector of Gatineau. I wasn't able to record what the fleet number was sadly.

 

The brief shots of that retired bus (in the background) is at 9:20, 9:40 and 9:49:

It is indeed a Niagara Falls Vii (some one I know showed me a pic of it back in February)  

As for it being retired I have no idea if it actually is.
