Durham Region Transit 8324-8329 were Nova Bus LFS buses built in 2004 and originally delivered new to Whitby Transit as 0424-0429. These buses are the first buses for Whitby Transit to be equipped with air conditioning and LED destination signs.

The buses have seating for 36 passengers or 29 passengers and two wheelchairs. The seats are in an all perimeter arrangement in the low floor section while the seats on and behind the wheel wells are in a transverse arrangement. The vehicle has a full low floor throughout in a charcoal Altro floor with a grid of circular bumps. Seat frames are in medium blue and seat inserts are in blue vinyl. These buses have a wide front door with a wheelchair ramp and a narrow rear door that uses an optic sensor for operation by passengers. Heating, cooling and ventilation are provided by a roof-mounted Carrier unit. Passenger windows have a fixed transom with split horizontal sliding lower sash. These buses are equipped with GFI Cents A Bill fare boxes.

The buses originally wore the gold and blue livery with the Whitby Transit logo at the rear. When these buses became part of the DRT fleet in 2006, they were soon given the grey and green stripes with DRT logos. However, for a short period, the Whitby Transit livery remained as seen in this photo of 8328 taken in 2006.

These buses can be found on a variety of routes in Whitby, but most prominently seen on the route 302 and 308

The series was retired in April 2018.
