Sarnia Transit 041-044 were 1990 Orion Bus Industries 01.507 buses. They were purchased from Golden Empire Transit in 2004, and were the last Orion I buses in transit service in Canada. They were the first to be delivered in a revised livery.

These buses were the largest in fleet from 2009 to 2015 after the retirement of the previous 40 foot buses were retired. They were in use mainly on weekdays primarily on route 9 Heritage Park due to high passenger loads. They were found on routes 1, 3 and 4 as well. The buses originally came equipped with Luminator flip dot destination signs and were replaced by Horizon signs in 2008 for the front and side only. The rear display was left disabled.

On Thursday, March 29th, 2018, bus 043 which was the last active unit, was officially retired from service marking the end of the Orion 1 era in Canada.
