I guess TTC will be buying either NFI or Nova now starting with the first order this year.
No surprise since no one wants to buy their buses these day as well with all the
problems TTC had with the Orion Hybrid buses.
The last few months of 2011, saw no buses in the yard or across the street at all.
Only a dozen Cutaways in the yard at Christmas with shells for more across. This
told me then Orion was done.
We only have Nova and NFI now for buses. Not sure if Eldorado will try to get their 40's up here or they have been approved to do so, other than the 30's.
Maybe NABI will now try get their buses approved as well Gillig. Gillg buses are not that bad from the ones I have seen.
Based on my first ride on a Nova artic last month, lack power on the hill
regardless if full or empty. There are worse than the old MT 9700's artic's for power.
Since TTC is ordering artic's this year, would not surprised if we see Nova as the
winner. 60% Canadian made vs. 25% NFI.
Never like the Orion VII from day one until I rode MT and OC new ones in 2010 that were
better than any of TTC ones.
