2240-2485 (8740-8985) GMDD T6H-5307N

1982-1983 GM T6H-5307N


(Some buses in this series are still in their old numbers waiting for rebuild)

Today a hand full of these buses still exist in their old numbers since they have not entered the rebuild program. There are many that have already went through the rebuild program and have received their new fleet numbers. This is how these buses are renumbered once they have gone through the rebuild program

8740-8799 series buses are renumbered to 2270-2299

8800-8899 series buses are renumbered to 2300-2399

8900-8985 series buses are renumbered to 2400-2485

This series of buses were officially the last batch of fishbowls ordered from General Motors by the TTC before they had shut down their production line of the T6H-5307 or fishbowl model in 1986.

The Rebuild Program

In 1996 the TTC started the fleet augmentation or rebuild program this is not to say that they did not do this in the past. They would take buses off the street at their retirement point and take them down to the TTC's Hillcrest complex. While at the complex they were structurally repaired and also had a mechanical rebuild. In Hillcrest there are two buildings one is the Duncan Shops where the buses would go into get their mechanical rebuild being their engines and transmissions. Buses would first go through the Harvey Shops where they would get a structural repair, repaint, electronics repair and body work. The rebuild program is divided into 6 year,12 year and 18 year rebuild programs. The 6 year being a minor rebuild to the 18 year program where extensive work goes on the rebuilding the whole bus to making it the equivalent of a brand new bus. The TTC has been successful in this program from the past and the present.
