Coming soon to Toronto: bendy buses

By 2014, Torontonians should be able to enjoy their commutes from the comfort of an extra-long articulated bus. The TTC just announced it has ordered 153 of these 112-passenger buses from Quebec-based Nova Bus Corporation to replace some of the 65-passenger models currently running on busy routes (priorities include the 29 Dufferin, 7 Bathurst, 116 Morningside, 25 Don Mills, 36 Finch West and 85A Sheppard lines). Larger vehicles mean the TTC can save money by reducing the number of buses it runs, while—we hope—giving riders more elbow room. The downside: fewer buses could mean killing more time at the bus stop. [NOW Magazine]
