How many systems get more than 12 years of life for articulated buses with NFI?The City's AMO report shows they wish to reduce the life span of articulated buses from 18 years to 12 years starting in 2024.
The AMO report also showed they intend to spend $12 million for bringing Big Data to Brampton Transit.
Surprised BT doing 18 years for articulated buses. Can see it for 40', but it should be no more than 15 due to extra cost to keep them on the road.
Mississauga has had a 12 year life cycle since day one with NFI and has had a hard time maintaining it that most have been retired before the 12 year with a few making it to the 13th. Those making it to 12 or 13th year required extra maintenance to keep them on the road, especially the last 5 years to the point special order were made for a few.
It will be interesting to see if the Nova Buses make 12 years
Nice to see on street charging as its the way to go and able to keep buses on route for the full day than replacing one with a fresh charge after a few hours,
