    Been riding behind buses for past few months that are spewing thick exhaust. It’s really nasty so I am not surprised. Someone tell TCD to start using their emissions testing facilities.

      from what i experienced in several other places the cars etc are placed with the front wheels on top of motorised rollers and a sensor in the exhaust pipe and them you are asked to press the gas pedal to get a reading !don,t know anything about readings but most i have seen here are x!

  2. Raw Onion says:

    I miss the good ole days of carbon monoxide poisoning from the 1970 series buses. They were sweat boxes and rolling gas chambers all in one. Those buses used to over heat, spew black smoke and break down quite often (seems like history is repeating itself).

  3. 69SSRS says:

    Isn’t that one of the new buses?

  6. C.B. says:

    Probably over heated and s*** went downhill from there. They always got these buses running none stop. They need a break too

    • Raymond Ray says:

      Granted, the buses are operating many hours per day; yet often, (if not always) after having a bus returned to H/Q by one operator it is returned to the road without first being overhauled e.g. checked out for any possible / inevitable problems.
      There’s a few minor things that must be done prior to sending a bus out on the public roads but aren’t :-( Ask most operators…

  7. Need Peace says:

    Funny man :)

  8. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Alan…keep playing with DeSilva and see where it gets you.

  9. Coffee says:

    Fire dept.(mars well) might as well keep the bus . Use it for training .

    • Raymond Ray says:

      I disagree Coffee. I say fix it and put it back in service and save the Govt. / public, (that’s us) from spending more money on another bus to take its place :-)
