Rapido's own New Look bus #3380 doesn't just look great, but it drives great too! And we believe Torontonians never forget a beautiful thing, as many camera phones usually come out when 3380 tours the streets
The Toronto Transportation Society occasionally has charters for its members in and around the Greater Toronto Area. On April 8th 2017 they chartered TTC Orion VII #7400 - slated for decommissioning later that year - and a special arrangement was made to have Rapido 3380 make a guest appearance. Needless to say, I think we stole the show.
With a collection of 4 other buses (mostly New Looks as well), 3380 partook in a day long gathering of private bus owners and enthusiasts. Rapido's own Josh Anderchek may have started having flashbacks of when he was a TTC driver as well - at one point driving New Look buses downtown on routes like the 6 Bay - as a number of people even tried boarding our bus thinking it was actually in service! Below are a selection of photos from that event.
Of course who could forget the first time we introduced 3380 to our Pullman sleeping car, Edmundston. Both are under the ownership of Rapido and we continue to restore them both to (almost) new condition. Call it a labour of love!
Over time, we will continue to update this page with photos from our adventures with 3380. Stay tuned!
