Brampton Transit 9129-9137 were Orion V (05.501) buses built in 1991 by Orion Bus Industries. This was Brampton Transit's first order of the wider Orion V model, following previous orders of Orion Is.

All buses in this series feature A/C and tip-in transom windows, as well as dual-stream treadle activated rear doors. They were the final units delivered with the "lazy B" logos in the contemporary red-white-blue scheme.

As of mid 2006, all had been refurbished and repainted into the newer livery except 9130. All except 9129 have an extended drivers area (which eliminated one passenger seat behind the driver). All retain their Luminator flip-dot signs, as opposed to a few Orion Is which received electronic displays when rebuilt.

As of April 2009, all have been equipped with bike racks, the oldest units in the fleet with them (no remaining Orion I's received bike racks).

It is interesting to note that the VINs are mixed with those of 1991 TTC and HSR orders in Orion V production.
