Toronto Transit Commission TTC1 is a 1998 model Prevost LeMirage XL-45 conversion coach used as the Command Bus. The Command Bus is used as an activity centre for special situations such as emergencies. TTC1 replaced 572, a 1975 MCI MC-8, which suffered a major rear structural failure in 2004. The TTC looked at using a retired transit bus or coach bus for a new Command Bus, but determined a secondhand purpose-built conversion would be most cost effective.[1]. The purchase of TTC1 was approved at the June 22, 2005 commission meeting.[2]. The coach made its public debut at the 2006 Roadeo. This bus is currently stored at Eglinton Division
