Why are the doing more?

I would guess to have a higher spare ratio?

When they only had W100-W107 and W211 as Community Buses, there were only 9 vehicles with a requirement of 7 vehicles in service on a weekday. That only leaves you with 2 spare vehicles. Also remember that the earliest Friendly Buses are now 10 years old - which is getting pretty ancient for cutaways, even with the amount of work TTC has put into them.

 Better than my thought. Thank you. I am curious to see what the Community fleet replacement would be.

most likely dodge promaster.  

Although the Promaster CS-2 is the current vehicle of choice for WheelTrans, IMO its capacity is way too low to function on the Community Bus routes. Although they can seat 7 based on the sales brochure, once there's two wheelchairs on board the seating capacity seems to drop to 0.

For the past few weeks, it appears there is a red info thing installed on Danforth Road and Savarin Street (both sides) meaning the 16 McCOWAN may have some stops designated as shared Wheel-Trans stops since I passed by it during construction on the watermain that happened since last month.

I spotted w580 on the highway today near Mississauga. I think this is the newest wheel trans bus.

Are we getting even more New vehicles for wheel-trans?
