Interior layout of the top deck.

GO Transit 8012-8021 were Alexander Dennis Enviro500 buses acquired in March 2009 and put into service at the end of April. Along with 2420-2439, they replaced 1600-1609 and 2000-2002. All models are 43 feet in length with seating for 80 individuals, 34 on the bottom level and 46 on the top level. All Enviro500s of this series are low-floor and equipped with wheelchair ramps.

They were delivered with the livery introduced on coaches 2328-2353. Inside, they feature reading lights (non-adjustable) and air vents (adjustable), as well as stop request buttons mounted on stanchions. Unlike the previous batch, this batch has seats upholstered in the usual Holdsworth "Scrible" moquette, LED interior lighting, Axion destination signs, and a front bumper that is flush with the body.

There are also four LCD screens, two on each level, controlled with a Luminator controller intended to display information. However, since the installation of INIT CAD/AVL systems on each vehicle, they have been largely deactivated in favour of two LED signs, one mounted above the monitor on the lower deck behind the door, and another on the side of the monitor at the front of the upper deck.

History

Assignment

This series of double deck buses had a height of 14 feet. Due to MTO restrictions on overheight vehicles, they were restricted to selected routes along the 407 West corridor, specifically routes 45, 46, and 48B. They were based out of Streetsville Garage.

From 2009 until 2012, some units would be based out of Niagara Falls during the summer months to operate on route 12. This practice ended with the year-round assignment of DDL buses on route 12 in 2013.

Refurbishment

These buses were refurbished by MTB Transit Solutions, alongside 8000-8011. Refurbishment included body and mechanical overhauls, and being repainted into the current two-tone green livery that was introduced on the latest double deck buses. The first bus returned to GO Transit in January 2015, and all units were refurbished by the end of 2015.

Retirement

Retirements for this series began in Fall 2017, as Enviro500 SuperLo buses continued entering service. After the opening of Highway 407 Station in December 2017, these buses could only operate on route 45, severely restricting their usage. The last day of service was March 1, 2018. After being withdrawn, all buses were moved to storage in a parking lot near Meadowvale GO Station. In November 2018, all units were sold to CVS Tours, and were transported to Vancouver by rail.
