OC Transpo 8501-8533 were Orion Bus Industries 03.501 buses built in 1985-86.

This order was purchased for $9 million ($17,778,224 adjusted for inflation, 2008). Originally this order was supposed to go to Volvo buses as Volvo placed a bid $142,000 lower then Orion but Volvo wanted to pull out of the North American market and paid $300,000 to buy out of the agreement. Because of this, this order ended up going to Orion [1][2].

There was supposed to be a 8534, but the unit that was supposed to be 8534 (VIN #: 2B1379972G5010034) fell off the ship. It was never replaced.
