OC Transpo will pull 43 double-decker buses from the road this weekend to effect repairs to their wiring systems.
The action was taken after a driver reported an odd smell on a double-decker bus Thursday night. It comes 10 days after a fire consumed a Route 222 double-decker bus on Piperville Road. Everyone on board that bus escaped unharmed thanks to an alert driver.
Troy Charter, OC Transpo’s director of transit operations, insisted that last week’s double-decker bus fire and the fumes reported on the same kind of bus Thursday are not related incidents.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/oc-transpo-pulls-43-double-decker-buses-for-weekend-repairs
