Wow where did you find this? I'll ask some of my co-workers.

I only wish it was mine. The image came to me in an email inquiry.  I'm very curious about the company. The badge is I think for driver #2 which might suggest it was a small operation.

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

This company started May 3,1960, it was called Shalta Hughson dba Nashwaaksis Bus Line, they where located in Nashwaaksis, N.B. In 1962 Mr. Hughson died and the certificate was transfer to Betty Jean Huggson in July 1962. Company was sold to SMT (Eastern) June 1965. Operated an route from main Street Fredericton - Brookside Drive - Westview Drive - Cherry Street - MacFarland Street - Fulton Ave. - Cedar Ave. - Sunset Drive - CPR Crossing, They had one bus an Ford school bus that went to SMT #3714. I hope this helps.

Saw 8171 out this afternoon while the ReadyPass app called it 8021, so that sounds like a probable candidate for being retired, at least.

You beat me to it. Just came to announce that 8021 has indeed been retired. 8981, 8982, and 8983 will also be retired once 8172, 8173, and 8174 enter service. Didn't know 8171 was on the road already, so that's good to know!

Thanks for the report! I also saw 8172, yesterday afternoon. I don't have ReadyPass due to lack of a compatible phone, so thanks for reporting what RTS's are being replaced. I'll start updating the wiki later.

Edit: Wiki pages updated. There's something melancholy about having to change the introductory sentence of a bus's Wiki page to past tense..

UPDATE: Fredericton has their new order of buses in service; I spotted 8183 the other day and 8184 tonight. By checking ReadyPass, 8184 is replacing 8042, meaning that 8183 would be replacing 8041 and that all Fredericton buses are now fully accessible.

 

Would we be able to get the wiki updated to state as much?
