7425 might be missing in action for a while, I spotted this at Don Mills Station around 7:30, and I also saw a 75xx with one of the clearance lights on the rear flashing with the blinkers on the same side.

operators are suppose to turn off buses if they will idle more than one minute.  So you cant tell by having hazard light on.

If you're talking about 7425, it has a damaged windoe and door glass pane, plus some paint scratches on the side. The front and rear looks fine and undamaged though.

It could be just a quick fix, just replace the glass and repaint that part.

Replacing the mirror only takes a few minutes. If it swung around and took out the door glass add an hour or so. I've replaced many at the side of the road and then driven them back. Wonder who's bright idea it was to place those poles so close to the road.

I heard from the driver only that the mirror broke, some other passengers said things like a busted tire or a tree branch went in to a windshield. I checked for a while after on the tracker if the bus was still there, and it was.

this one is not bad.  Unlike the poles on bathurst, they are leaning toward the road.  If the mirror is busted on the left side, the bus will be most likely going to be towed as it is too dangerous for the maintainance staff to repair it on the road.

1206 has been MIA for a while. It's already been rebuilt so it must be something else

Actually, it's been back at Malvern for a week, but don't expect it to see any kind of service till the landslide infrastructure is in place.

7431 should be off the road for a while.  It Took out a snow ban.  The panel behind the front wheel well bent pretty bad.

Looks like 7814 is done after hitting a pole on Queen. Picture was taken from Reddit.

hard to say.  Certainly repairable but given the age of the slow box.  It may be done.  

I'm fairly certain it's done since they had to use the jaws of life on it to free the passengers on the bus.

there is only a front end damage.  it also depends how badly the frame is damage and the cost to repair it.  I have seen buses worse front end damage get repair.
