Bus was 0564

That bus was in due time for retirement within the next year or so. Glad it wasn't a new Nova involved or else...

P.S. wondering if collision warning systems might have been able to brake the bus in time to minimize the damage?

So you're assuming the bus was moving when it got rear ended...

And I doubt a bus built from 2005 would have the technology for that.

He probably copy and pasted it from a website, probably unreliable 

Actually, it was from the Mississauga Media page, and the info was IMPORTANT, that’s why I said “important info” so stop always accusing me for doing things. Admins, are already taking care of it.if you keep on Reporting things to the Admins you will be held accounted for.

First of all, I didn't report this to the admins. Maybe you are accusing me of doing that...?

Second of all, this isn't really considered "inportant info", rather "fun facts". You copy and pasted all of this from a website and even the pictures were from the website. I also don't think that information is that really reliable to an extent as @drum118 pointed out and that the story was posted in May. (FYI, it should be 10 wheels on a Nova bus Artic, including the rear (ZF AV 132) and centre (ZF AVN 132) that has 4 wheels per axle)

Also the fact that you just posted it without referring to the website made me think that the you posted some bullshit, which is quite reasonable to think that.

Thirdly, your reputation of posting has really gone down which is understandable that someone would call you out. With that attitude and threat of "be held accounted for", it's something to really behold, especially coming from someone like you who has made multiple accounts to continue posting random nonsense.

He also acted as if they were his photos. No credit or anything.

I believe that the Novabus artics only have 8 wheels. The centre axle has 2 wide profile tires. I don’t think Nova changed up their designs on that yet. I’m sure of this because TTC has the same wide profile tires on our buses.

The wiki article said that the centre one was just the rear axle without the drive. It didn't talk about the wheels so I assumed the centre one had two wheels.

"The passive non-driving version of the axle is known as the AVN 132 and is commonly found in articulated buses."

It looked like there were two wheels per axle at an angle, and I was reading that it could be similar from the one of the wiki articles:

"The passive non-driving version of the axle is know as the AVN 132 and is commonly found in articulated buses."

The rear are dual tires. The center is a 1.5 wide single tire. Similar to the rear tires on a 30 foot Vicinity.
