This is what the new TTC buses look like

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.

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.
