Toronto Transit Commission 7900-7979

Jump to: navigation, search

Toronto Transit Commission 7900-7979 are Orion 07.501 buses built and delivered in 2006. The Commission awarded a contract for 330 buses, made up of 150 diesel-electric hybrid and 180 clean diesel buses to Orion in early 2005. Due to the unplanned retirement of a number of older buses, the TTC needed buses before the planned delivery date. Orion was able to deliver these 80 buses ahead of schedule.[1] They were able to replace 9200-9249 and some GM New Looks.

History

Order

These are the first Orion VII buses in the fleet to use the Cummins engine. They were also to be the first to feature diesel particulate filters. However because they ended up being delivered before ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) became mandatory, they feature diesel oxidation catalysts instead. It is a requirement that ULSD be used with the particulate filter.[1]

Modifications

Many units entered service with bike racks already installed, recycled from buses in the retired CNG Orion VI buses. All buses also had auto announcements and CCTV cameras installed, along with driver barriers in 2009.

This series started getting the new Computer-Aided Dispatch and Automatic Vehicle Location (CAD/AVL) Vehicle Information System and Integrated Operations Network (VISION) system installed in mid-January 2019. Units that currently have VISION installed are: 7957-7979. Buses that don't have VISION are being retrofitted with TETRA radios for use on streetcar shuttles. TTC has ordered VISION kits for the buses that don't currently have the system installed.

Movement History

All units were initially based out of Wilson division, allowing them to replace the 92xx Orion VI CNG buses and some GM New Looks.

7900-7904, 7906-7907, 7909-7911 moved to Eglinton in October 2008 then Arrow Road received 7900-7924 so diesel buses could be used on route 191. Wilson retained 7925-7979 until 2010 when Queensway received 7970-7979 and later traded 7925-7969 for the 13xx and 14xx hybrids. Birchmount received 7900-7919 in August 2010, and loaned 7939, 7945, 7953, 7960, 7965 from Arrow, and returned to Arrow Road in early 2011 when Birchmount received the 81xx buses from Wilson. Other units were transferred between Arrow and Queensway during late 2015 and 2016 to replace retiring D40LF units at Queensway, and as units completed their rebuild. In 2018, the remaining Arrow units were transferred to Queensway. In late April 2019, 7937-7938, 7940-7956 were transferred to Birchmount in exchange for a few 84xx units. In May 2019, 7952-7956 were transferred to Queensway.

These units are currently operating out of Birchmount and Queensway divisions.

Events Support vehicles

In August 2018, 7900-7905 were removed from revenue service and converted into Events Support buses for the Toronto Police Service. These buses are used for moving officers during large events, and utilized as roadblocks during street closures. At first, the buses were given an all-over dark metallic grey livery (matching the police cruisers). At the start of November 2018, the buses were repainted in a greyscale LFLRV livery and given decals, making them more visible.
