Durham Region Transit 8321-8322 were Orion 06.501 buses built in 1998 and acquired by DRT in 2006. They were originally delivered new to Whitby Transit as 9821-9822.

The buses have seating for 32 passengers or two wheelchairs with a reduction in seating. The seats are in an all perimeter arrangement to the end of the fuel tank on the door's side and the wheelchair area on the driver's side, and a transverse arrangement to the rear with one perimeter seat between the curbside wheel well and rear door. Seat frames are in medium blue and seat inserts are in Holdsworth YSW24954 moquette. These buses a wheelchair ramp at the front door and touch bar operated rear doors. Heating and ventilation are provided by a roof-mounted Thermo King unit. Passenger windows have a fixed transom with split horizontal sliding lower sash. These buses are equipped with GFI Cents A Bill fare boxes.

At some point in their Whitby Transit careers, the buses received electronic destination signs in lieu of the original rollsigns. When these buses became part of the DRT fleet in 2006, the Whitby transit lettering along the roofline was replaced by a DRT logo. They received a front DRT logo too. The black around the windows and the yellow and light blue roofline stripes (both parts of the original Whitby Transit livery) remained until refurbishment.

These buses were moved to Westney garage in September 2011 to allow all Orion VI buses to be at one garage.

Refurbishment

Both buses were sent to Eastway for refurbishment in late April 2009 and returned that summer. As part of the refurbishment, these buses received the latest DRT livery, Altro flooring like that on DRT's D40LFs, and new seat inserts with the same Holdsworth moquette as the D40LFs. These replaced the charcoal Altro flooring and blue vinyl inserts on the perimeter seats and first transverse seat pair on either side and the Holdsworth Blue Dots moquette on the remaining seats.
