Toronto Transit Commission 6000-6122 were Flyer Industries D901 buses built and delivered in 1985. The base order for 75 buses at a cost of $12-million was awarded to Flyer in 1984. An option for 48 more buses was later taken for a total of 123 buses. This order joins the first batch of D901 buses that the TTC ordered in 1980.

The buses were delivered in the "CLRV" livery that was used throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. The interior used the contemporary beige and brown colour scheme with fibreglass seats that had padded inserts. These buses were the first in the fleet to be delivered with power steering. Another new feature was a backlit "stop requested" sign. The buses were delivered with rollsigns which, as part of a fleet-wide retrofit in the early 1990s, were replaced by electronic Luminator flip-dot signs.

Beginning in 1998, the majority of the buses in this series underwent their 12-year midlife rebuild (6080 was not rebuilt and was retired). They had their major components and systems overhauled, as well as had repairs made to their structure and body. The buses received a new coat of paint in the TTC's current livery. Padded brown vinyl inserts were replaced with the standard red synthetic wool inserts.

By 2004, the buses had reached their projected 18-year lifespan. The bulk of this series was retired between 2004 and 2007 (along with the 6130-6204 series), and replaced by the various Orion VII orders during that timespan. The last unit, 6068, was retired in September 2007.

When new, these buses were based at Queensway, Arrow Road, and Danforth garages. In their last days, most were based out of Arrow Road and Malvern garages.

Fleet numbers from this retired series were partially reused for the new Bombardier Toronto Rocket subway cars.
