W101 was not part of the community bus fleet prior to its rebuilt.  

This is the reason why its part of the community bus fleet now

 

Community Bus Pilot

Beginning September 5, 2017 TTC will run a nine-month Community Bus Pilot to test service enhancements along two routes – 400 Lawrence Manor and 404 East York. The buses operating along the pilot routes will run hourly and stop at additional destinations. This project aims to increase ridership, by providing customers with a more convenient and accessible travel option for getting around their neighbourhood easily. 
 

Key Community Bus pilot improvements

 

New community bus

 

400 Lawrence Manor 

Schedule

Stops at Humber River Regional Hospital, Villa Colombo seniors’ residence, and North York Plaza near Keele/Lawrence, as well as other destinations along its extended route. 

 

Route Map of the 400 Lawrence Manor

404 East York

Schedule

Stops at Coxwell Subway Station, No Frills, Fresh Co., Main Street Library, Norman Houghton Complex, Community Centre 55, and The Beaches, as well as other destinations along its extended route.

In addition, buses along both pilot routes have a new look.  Keep an eye out for these newly refinished buses.

Route Changes

While Community Bus will travel along an extended route during the Pilot, there will be a few small parts of the old routes that will no longer be serviced. These changes were made only along streets where no passengers, or very few, got on the bus; and where there are other accessible conventional buses running nearby.  Here is a list of areas no longer served and alternative buses nearby: 400 Lawrence Manor and 404 East York. 

 

Route changes along 400 Lawrence Manor and 404 East York will remain in effect until a full assessment of the Pilot is complete in mid-2018.

Does anyone know how many ProMasters are delivered currently? I was watching CP24 earlier this evening and they were showing a clip on the Invictus Games. Behind the person speaking at a podium at Maple Leaf Square was a 2017 Nova LFS as well as a ProMaster numbered W500. Does this mean two are on property or did they decide to renumber W400 possibly?

W500 looks like it’s in service as I just saw it going westbound on Dundas.

I can also confirm that, spotted it on Morningside at Military Trail this afternoon.

Routes 400 and 404 seem to be working well with quite a bit of passengers. There are two buses on each ends of the routes. Buses W102 and W211 were on the 400 along with W100 and W104 on the 404. W100 and W211 have not been rebuilt yet. W500 made it out on training as well. Photos attached.

W107 has been rebuilt and joined the community bus fleet.

Yes from reading on wiki W101 and W107 were refitted for Community Bus for when the 400 and 404 got that new routing

The other Friendly Buses used for Wheel-Trans service are now getting the new paint scheme. I spotted what I believe was W161 in the new scheme on the DVP on Thursday afternoon. The font size for the "Wheel Trans" above the windshield is smaller now.

I saw w521 today.  I believe 40 more has been ordered.  

The only orders of ProMaster buses that I'm aware of are the original 20 and a second order of 60; so W500-W519 and W520-W579.
