Eastway Refurbishing 9810, 9820, 9823, 9829, 9837, 9840-9842 are 1997 BIA Orion VI (06.501) buses. They were purchased from Mississauga Transit.

36 used Orion VIs from Mississauga Transit were purchased by Eastway in 2010. Eastway partnered with Corrections Canada, where inmates would receive training to perform refurbishment work on the buses. While the initially announced plans were to refurbish up to 30 units, only 8 units were known to have been completed. Features on refurbished buses include a refurbished powertrain, new Recaro driver's seat, new interior, LED lighting, and LED destination sign. Two units were immediately resold to Cornwall Transit, while others were retained by Eastway and were leased to Ontario transit systems.
