Durham Region Transit 8330-8332 were part of an order of Orion 05.501 buses built for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) in 1997, but rejected and sold at a reduced price by Orion. They were originally acquired by Coach USA/Red & Tan in 1997, and then transferred to Coach Canada before ending up with Whitby Transit as 9730-9732. They then became part of the DRT fleet after the 2006 merger.

These buses are built to full WMATA specifications, which included telling exterior features such as single stream rear door, two side destination sign displays, and extra turn signals mounted high at the rear. The interior also is telling of the system the bus was originally to be built for, with light blue vinyl cushioned seats, woodgrain walls in the passenger area, light brown driver's area, and light blue floor. The buses have a single stream push bar operated rear door which is close by the driver.

In mid-2008 to early 2009, the buses went through refurbishment. The buses received the full current DRT livery and all LED exterior lighting (minus headlights). The woodgrain walls under the windows was replaced with and off-white wall, and the floor was changed from the blue RCA rubber to the Altro TransFlor used in the D40LFs.
