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.
