Missing in Action buses


Recommended Posts

Think this should be posted here...

TTC 3188 is either retired or going to go missing for a while. It's now parked beside 8573 at Hillcrest (9003 was moved out from the area). 3188 is missing several parts, bike rack, a part of the bumper at the front, its entire engine, parts of the rear. I think this was the bus in that crash with the van near Finch a few weeks ago, but 3188 didn't seem to have much damage, so i'm wondering why they'd park it with 8573. Possible parts bus?

It has not been retired but will be missing for a while. The collision caused significant damage and it was necessary to remove the engine and other components before the repairs can be completed. The missing front parts were probably borrowed for other vehicles and can be easily replaced after the rear damage is repaired.

TTC 8311 has been missing in action for quite sometime (this is the Orion with the new operator shield) and still tracks at Wilson, however it has been at Hillcrest for a while now (i think a month would be a good estimate). It was parked right infront of retired 1376 for a few weeks and only yesterday it was moved into the west end of Harvey.

Anyone know where TTC 8065 is? It went to the Island shuttle back in February. With the bus change every 6 months (MTO), it should've came back in late July/early August but still is not back yet (according to the tracker anyways).

Been a while since I've done a roll-up of MIA buses, but based on daily observations on Transsee, here are the buses that have not seen service in the past three weeks (since the start of the month), indicating long-term absences:

1022, 1053, 1090, 1110, 1222, 1605, 3147, 3165, 3168, 3173, 3188, 3194, 3258, 3259, 3264, 3266, 3276, 3297, 3317, 3368, 3403, 3408, 3415, 3428, 3439, 3449, 3452, 3458, 3460, 3470, 3471, 3479, 3486, 3494, 3508, 3511, 3520, 3525, 3537, 3538, 3539, 3543, 3545, 3550, 3624, 3728, 3736, 3738, 3739, 3745, 3757, 7924, 7930, 7945, 7946, 7975, 8065, 8069, 8216, 8311, 8438, 8451, 8457, 8460-8468, 8470, 8480, 8526, 8530, 8532-8542, 8548, 8552, 8577, 8599, 8604, 8613, 8615, 8625, 8645, 8667, 8696, 8730, 8757, 8873, 8879, 8883, 8944, 9143, 9214, 9219.

Of note, there are currently 14 of the 31xx series of LFS and 25 of the 34xx series of LFS HEV buses that have been MIA for 3+ weeks, and 5 of the Proterras (20% of the 25-bus fleet).
