Recommended Posts

Do we have a running post that is regularly updated for missing in action buses in this thread? If not, I would not mind staying on top of one

My apologies. I was under the impression that there were more buses off the road at the moment.

I did not include buses that are going through rebuilds or mechanical body overhauls unless you think I should add them.

Maybe include inactive vehicles prior to their ultimate retirement (5-7 days of inactivity). Body overhauls are for the refurbishment thread. Mechanical holds should end up here I believe (ex. Malvern dybrids that have fallen off the regular running grid). I used to stay on top of my own person search, but the access page on the intranet has been restructured and restricting

I would mark a vehicle as MIA if it hasn't been out for 14 or more days. If it's a vehicle that is currently in the process of retirement (i.e. CLRVs), 5 days.

My friend at TBM just told me that 8474 and 8589 gave each other boo boos in the D track, so they may be MIA for a bit.

probably the mirrors got damaged.  Some of the spots are tight but doable.

It's the only 83xx unit without VISION.

It’s at birchmount. Presumably waiting on a proper kit to be delivered.

Took a trip out east to Malvern today. 1520, 1535, 1537, 1538 & 1572 have not received new license plate stickers for the year. 1535 looks lightly stripped, while 1520 is missing a radiator panel and a driver side light housing  1538 & 1572 look like they haven’t moved on a long while.

Edit: I didn’t realize 1520, 1535 & 1537 were retired because they’re all still plated.

did 1538 or 1572 have their presto readers still? I noticed they were removed out of service the same time as 1514 1519 1520 1619 just to name a few of the units that were pulled out of service. did you see 1622 parked in front of 1520 or is it gone from that spot?

1622 is still in front of 1520, with dying batteries. I believe 1538 & 1572 still had their presto readers. I can’t remember if 1538 had its trump unit, but I know 1572 does

Can someone provide an update on 9003? I've heard that it's partially stripped at Hillcrest. Can anyone verify this?

#1824, #9063 are tracking somewhere in Mississauga. Supposedly at a warranty and/or maintenance facility.

8695 is now tracking at Hillcrest after its accident at Lawrence East RT Station

It's probably been at Hillcrest for several weeks getting repaired and its tracker just got turned back on.
