Durham Region Transit 8978 is a 2011 model ElDorado National E-Z Rider II MAX bus built in 2010 and is used exclusively on Ajax-Pickering Community Bus routes, formerly called Flag Bus. DRT trialed a 2006 E-Z Rider II MAX demo shortly after that year's CUTA Trans-Expo. They bought their first new one in 2008 which allowed them to gradually replace their fleet of ELF cutaways.

This bus has a perimeter seating arrangement in the high floor section instead of 2+2 seating as in 8975 & 8976. The perimeter seats can be folded to provide space for three wheelchairs. The seats are in grey and have unpadded inserts in Holdsworth Fabrics' YSW24954 moquette. This bus features a wheelchair ramp at the front door and the rear door. The rear door uses Vapor touch bars for passenger operation and has GFI Cents A Bill fare box and bike rack.
