New look TTC buses spotted on Toronto streets

The first of the TTC's new-look buses hit the streets earlier this week, embarking on the 51 Leslie route. You'd be forgiven if you hadn't noticed because this is one of the lesser traveled circuits in the city, but a few intrepid photographers spotted the redecorated Orion VII NG bus in the wild.

The TTC has ordered 285 new buses from Nova for 2017 and 2018, all of which will come painted in the new livery, which is designed to match the scheme of our Bombardier streetcars. In other words, you can expect to see a lot more of them on the streets this year.
