Cape Breton recently tendered for 2 more 40' buses. The winning bid was Nova Bus at a cost of $1,160,097 (around $580,000 per bus). So Cape Breton will be receiving 2 more LFS buses.

The remaining Orion V's 7056, 7061-62 are now retired as well as their last remaining ex-Broward D40LF 7071. 7074 was retired earlier this year. So now the oldest bus active is 7086.

3 more used D40LF's were recently acquired; a 2006 Barrie unit and 0703 & 0705 from St. Catharines

The one from Barrie is likely 68506; on the GovDeals site, the username pieces visible are the same as what was listed for 69007 and 69107, while the winning bidders for the other 3 68-series Barrie buses are completely different.

In addition to Cape Breton buying 68506, they also have acquired 68406 from Barrie, which is the all-white unit beside ex-SCT 0705;

Are all these buses replacements or is there a service increase planned?

Likely replacements for the remaining Orion V's and the last remaining ex-Broward D40LF. 7100 (ex-Fredericton 8041) was recently completed and 8042 will be a parts bus. 68406 is now 7101.

Forgot to mention another used D40LF had arrived a couple weeks ago, former Kingston Transit 0620 according to the VIN number.
