History

Order

The decision to purchase hybrid buses was based on the deployment of hybrids in New York City. The TTC also received funding from the Federal Government for the purchase of environmentally friendly buses. In May 2005, a contract (C32PY04839) for 150 diesel-electric hybrid buses and 180 clean diesel buses (7900-7979 and 8000-8099) was awarded to DaimlerChrysler Commercial Buses North America (Orion). An option for an additional 220 buses (either hybrids or diesels) could be exercised. The option was taken and these units became 1200-1419.

Modifications

Due to reliability problems with the sealed lead acid (SLA) energy storage batteries delivered with the buses, they had their batteries replaced with Lithium-ion batteries by MTB starting in late 2008. Bus 1062 was the prototype for conversion, and originally had a square battery housing designed in-house. This was later swapped for the standard rounded cover used by Orion.

Bike racks and CCTV cameras were fitted a few years after delivery. Driver barriers were also added between 2009 and 2010. Throughout 2015, the seats immediately behind the front wheels, including those in the wheelchair space, received blue inserts as part of a fleet-wide modification to better denote courtesy seating.

1000-1125, 1127-1130 are equipped with the new Vehicle Information System and Integrated Operations Network (VISION) system. 1006 was a test bus for the new VISION system in late 2017.

Rebuild

In the first quarter of 2015, the TTC began the midlife rebuild of these buses. The first bus was outshopped in April 2015. By November other buses in this series entered the rebuild program. The final buses were completed in August 2016. The buses received body and structural repairs as well as an overhaul of some systems and components. They were given new flooring and a fresh coat of paint. Because of budget constraints, overhaul and replacement of the generator, traction motor, propulsion control, and high voltage cabling was postponed to 2017.

Movement History

Upon delivery to the TTC, all 150 buses were initially based out of Arrow Rd division. With the arrival of more NG hybrids at Arrow, and the increasing unreliability of this series, they were split upon the opening of Mount Dennis division, with 50 units each going to Arrow (1000-1049), Wilson (1050-1099) and Malvern (1100-1149).

Wilson split up their 50 units in May 2010, with the lower 25 going to Mount Dennis, and the upper 25 going to Malvern. Arrow sent their remaining 50 units to Mount Dennis in August 2010, making it an even 75/75 split between Mount Dennis and Malvern. In February 2011, 1075-1079 were moved to Mount Dennis to compensate for a bus shortage, and were returned in 2012. 1063-1074 were transferred to Malvern in summer 2013 to replace retiring 7000-series units. Just before the 2015 Pam Am Games, 1063-1067 and 1071-1076 were transferred back to Mount Dennis.

In 2018, the remaining units and some of the 1200 series units that are at Malvern are being transferred to Mount Dennis in exchange for the 1500 and 1600 series buses that are not rebuilt as the 1500 and 1600 series buses being transferred to Malvern are expected to start retiring this year.

Deployment

These buses are normally found on routes 6 Bay, 14 Glencairn, 26 Dupont, 29 Dufferin, 32 Eglinton West, 41 Keele, 47 Lansdowne, 55 Warren Park, 71 Runnymede, 77 Swansea, 79 Scarlett Rd., 89 Weston, 94 Wellesley, 126 Christie, 127 Davenport, 141 Downtown/Mt. Pleasant Express, 161 Rogers Rd., 168 Symington, 171 Mt. Dennis, 300 Bloor-Danforth, 320 Yonge, 329 Dufferin, 332 Eglinton West, 341 Keele, 929 Dufferin Express, and 989 Weston Express.
