Durham Region Transit 8446-8459
Durham Region Transit 8446-8459 are New Flyer D40LF buses built in 2008 and delivered new to DRT in 2008. This batch is part of the Ontario transit agency consortium order for buses for delivery in 2008.
These buses have seating for 38 passengers or 32 passengers and two wheelchairs. The seats are in grey with charcoal grab handles and backing. The inserts are in Holdsworth Fabrics' YSW24954 moquette. The wheelchair ramp is located at the front door. The rear door uses Vapor vTouch touch bars for passenger operation. Heating, cooling and ventilation are provided by a rear-mounted Thermo King T11 unit, and almost all and passenger windows are of the tip-in transom design. The window after the front door and the last window on the driver's side are of the sliding design. Those windows open a small distance to allow increased airflow throughout the bus if the air conditioning fails. The buses have GFI Cents A Bill fare boxes.
The buses began receiving mounts for Sportworks bike racks on the front bumper near the end of August to early September 2009. They received the bike racks by the end of November. 8448 received a rack earlier and was used as a display bus for bike racks on October 23, 2009 at the regional headquarters.
