In Hamilton, when James and John were converted to two way many years ago, HSR said it would be at a cost of about $ 1.5 million to HSR. Council did not give additional funds and we were told just to deal with it.

And I bet London city council will say the exact same thing...

The November 27 Commission meeting included a report awarding a new 3 year contract to New Flyer for bus purchases between 2020-2022 (delivery 2021-2023). The contract will include both 40' and 60' diesel buses. Pricing for the 40' bus was $565K per bus and for the 60' bus it was $879K per bus. 

16 40' replacement buses are being purchased for delivery by October 23, 2020. Given the budget issues at the city of London currently, purchase of 4 expansion buses is not recommended until the 2020 budget is confirmed.

Speaking of buses, did LTC recieve an order of buses this year?

Unfortunately I’ve moved from London but I do believe there’s a few new buses. Every now and then I check Transsee and didn’t notice any new buses tracking until today...So far seems like units 547, 548, 550, and 552 have entered service

The rest of the new units are parked at Highbury, 555 is the newest unit.

Just a update on some recent retirements.

466 is retired inside the dead line.

468, 469, 480, & 101 are retired in the tent,

Do they still have any high floors left in the tent or are they all gone?
