CBRM will get $1.2 million to purchase six buses including five used and one new bus to complement its existing fleet.

Also, Cape Breton University will now serve as a transfer hub splitting Route 1 which served all stops between Sydney and Glace Bay into two routes (1 Sydney-CBU, 2 Glace Bay-CBU?) according to the new schedules. An express route has been implemented with select stops including CBU between the towns.

Durham Region Transit 8161 is now numbered 7117, so there's one finally done. A Medicine Hat 2010 D40LFR has been acquired along with another LFR unit. The 2009 could also be from Medicine Hat or Red Deer.

I spotted an ex- Medicine Hat Transit D40LFR bus on a flatbed truck on the 401 headed eastbound at Trenton yesterday evening.  Logos and fleet numbers removed.  Probably arrived by now.

Not sure if you were able to notice whether it was an 09 or 2010?

Recieved a DM from an Instagram follower, he has informed me that apparently all 6 diesel powered LFR's from Medicine Hat 748-750 (2009) - 751-753 (2010) along with 2005 D40LF unit 747 have been acquired by TCB.

One new Nova was delivered; unit 7129. Already has the wrap graphics and plated. TCB also received a Ford Transit 350 with a Starcraft body and 3 secondhand D40LF's. The D40LF's are originally from London.

Does Cape still operate those Ex Mississauga Ez riders? It was posted on this topic that one of them were delivered but nothing on it servicing the city.

There is only one, as far as is known, and it is operated by the Port Authority and not Transit Cape Breton. It is painted all white and is stored at the Transit Cape Breton garage. With no cruise shops coming to town in the past few years, the bus has apparently not been used much.
