Engine failure on 822 had occurred this morning which was an engine overheat and eventually forced the bus to break down at a bus stop in Miami. 822 was currently doing a Route 756 to West Burleigh, on a Friday Tweed Shift. It was sitting at the bus stop in Miami for nearly 40 minutes, with passengers onboard. Ernest Bus 345 replaced 822, continuing its Tweed shift for the rest of the day. Passengers travelling further south were transferred to 345 and the unit continued running the 756 to West Burleigh nearly an hour late due to that hold up. 822 was towed back to Tweed, and will now go under maintenance to fix the problem, wouldn't be surprised if it comes back with a new full green TransLink livery.

Anyone know what has happened to Tweed Bus 367? Haven't seen her out on the roads for a while.

795 has not yet recieved a new TransLink livery, just remains green on the front and rear, white on the sides.
