Toronto's slowly getting a new fleet of streetcars, and to match these swanky-looking vehicles, the city's new buses are getting a makeover too.
Earlier today, the TTC board approved the purchase of 285 new buses. The company Nova Bus will deliver 245 of them in 2017 and the remaining 40 in 2018.
As TTC spokesperson Brad Ross tweeted out, these buses - as well as rebuilt buses - will get a paint job that resembles the new generation of streetcars.
Meet your new bus livery. Matches new streetcar design. To be applied to new buses and rebuilds. http://pic.twitter.com/tnOjEKPQOA— Brad Ross (@bradTTC) November 30, 2016
The new bus look, to be clear, will only be applied to newly-acquired buses and those buses that were rebuilt and needed a new paint job.— Brad Ross (@bradTTC) November 30, 2016
In August, we reported that the buses were likely going to get a new, pared down design and colour scheme with deeper red tones. It looks like that's actually going to happen sooner than expected.
