StreetBeat - Jul. 31 - Bus Fire On Gardiner Expressway

Thursday July 31, 2008

CityNews.ca Staff

One lane of the westbound Gardiner Expressway was closed during the Thursday morning rush hour after a bus fire.

The vehicle's engine compartment apparently caught fire just before 8am, prompting the evacuation of 55 passengers who waited on the side of the highway at Spadina for a second bus to pick them up.

Fire crews made quick work of the blaze and no injuries were reported.

Can anyone tell whose bus it is??

Wow. I'd say! That news artical was disturbing. :(

That's basically what the people at my department were talking about all day!

We were also guessing what is going to happen to #1170 after the police are done with it. And eerie as it seems; 1170 is a D4500 which is what GO has predominantly!

That is what we have been talking about at work all day too. There are a few transit users who work with me, but we're not too scared, because we use an urbanized transit system, not one that's long-distance, but the thought of it haunts us.
