Fredericton Transit update.


Recommended Posts

Hey all, i am out in Frederiction for my grandmas funeral and i stoped by the garage for a short visit and here is a bit of info.

Classic 8861 is retired with 8862 to follow shortly.

8081 is the newest Nova and they are talking about getting 4-5 more by next year.

that being said, they want to "hopefully" get rid of the 4 1998 RTS by next year as they have really bad frames.

photos to be posted when i get home.

Two New NOVA LFS buses arrived at Fredericton Transit this morning. 8161 and 8162. No word yet on what RTS buses they will retire. as well as when the new buses will be on the road.

I have received word that Transit will indeed be getting the funding to purchase four buses next year, and four more the year after. This will wipe out all buses up to and including 8042.

8072 is back in service, after being sidelined for two years due to a transmission issue. I was on it tonight and it seemed to be working as normal. TheDuke sent me a video earlier today of 8013 dri

Hmmm... I wonder what is wrong with their frames at such a young age? The RTS used to be known for having very good structures in previous years. Maybe NovaBus didn't build them as well as earlier years? I didn't hear of TTC having any problems with their 1998 RTS coaches. Never heard anything about STO's 2000 units either!

they have newer RTS buses too so you could ride them..

If their 1998 have the same powertrain as TTC RTS, then I can let it pass.

Their 2000 model should have ZF transmission rather the Allison.

Was in Fredericton on Saturday and I talked to a driver who drove 8851 that morning and said it still is in great shape.

The RTS' are still there, and the only complaint is the driver compartment is too crampt.
