Whitby Transit 9730-9732
They were part of an order built for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) in 1997, but rejected and sold at a reduced price by Orion. They were originally acquired by Coach USA/Red & Tan in 1997, and then transferred to Coach Canada.
These buses are built to full WMATA specifications, which included telling exterior features such as single stream rear door, two side destination sign displays, and extra turn signals mounted high at the rear. The interior also is telling of the system the bus was originally to be built for, with light blue vinyl cushioned seats, woodgrain walls in the passenger area, light brown driver's area, and light blue floor. The buses have a single stream push bar operated rear door which is close by the driver.
