This picture was taken on the morning of December 16, 2005 in Hull, Quebec. It brought back memories to me about when I used drive articulated buses at the TTC. They were terrible buses to handle in the snow.
OC Transpo fleet of 18-metre articulated buses has a poor track record in the snow. The buses use rear-wheel drive, have trouble moving in reverse and can't make turns of more than 45 degrees. But OC Transpo said demand for its service is such that the city can't afford not to use shorter, non-articulated buses.
