Wheel-Trans update: I managed to get a fleet list from a contact who works in Wheel-Trans. Out of the first order of Friendly Buses, there are only 53 active units. All of the five "ex-demonstrat

Didn’t realize that, thanks. Keep counting your age in fractions, and they’ll be calling you kid long after your 15th.

It’s been here for a little while actually... here it is at Davisville/Head office in January...

There's nothing cool about a Promaster. 

A Promaster van as Wheel-Trans interests me. Is there a problem with that?

A promaster is a van, simple as that. Kids these days seem to like vans.

It is apart of public transit so they should be documented. As for being part of the Community bus fleet... They are way too small for that.

so how many did TTC orderd for 2019?  I guess the Friendly are worst shape than expected?

The oldest of them are 11 years old. For a medium duty commercial vehicle, that’s end of life. Definitely not unexpected.

The hand grenade mimicking attributes of the 6.4 litre powerstroke definitely make for a strong argument against extending their service lives.

Though some of those “medium duty commercial vehicles” are community buses. Thus meaning that some of the can’t retire until the TTC finds another bus to replace it with. Same as the RT. The equipment in it is aging faster than the Concorde. Though again the TTC can’t really find a LRT to replace it without electrifying the rail (when I mean electrify I mean like putting up centenaries and removing the third-rail system).

Um, coming from a 14 1/4 year old, I’m more of a Lincoln Navigator type of guy. Big SUV that would bring me from point A to point B in style. My other friends tend to like sports and super cars
