We all remember them: The OC Transpo buses with pink vinyl seats. Simultaneously slippery and yet unrelentingly sticky, and brutally hot in the summer. According to user ikarus8737 on the OC Transpo livejournal, they're now a thing of the past:
This is slightly old news but worth noting: The old school, white with red stripe livery, slidey yet sticky, peach colored seat bus era has ended with the retirement of the last of the MCI/Novabus "Classic " model buses.
I can't say I'm overly disappointed, but it's a funny note. Read through the journal thread; many operators and other staff, most of whom are pretty nostalgic about the "Classics". It's also worth noting that the OC Transpo fleet, according to the same user, is now a very modern one.
