GO Transit is a crown corporation in Ontario, running from Hamilton to Peterborough east to west, and to Guelph and Newmarket up north from Toronto. However, I did not know that they ever had O5s with a rear door.

They had 2000 and 2002 Orion V with rear doors that were used on the Yonge and Bayview Corridors in York Region. When York Region took over these services in 2003 they were sold to YRT. However, the photo of 522 is an ex-Suburban that likely had a rear door retrofit.

The Lakewood Express bus is now a Monsey Trails operation. The company was Darkeinu'/Lake Carter. The bus pictured is probably ex-Lakeland.

Lakewood Express Bus Breaks Down On Parkway Entrance Blocks Ramp For Over Two Hours
DEC 15 2011 12:49 AM
UPDATED: A Lakewood Express bus broke down on a Garden State Parkway entrance ramp late Wednesday evening, blocking the ramp for over two hours. The bus, operated by Monsey Trails and formerly Lake Charter was en-route from New York when it broke down on the entrance ramp from the 440 Expressway in Woodbridge at about 10:00 PM.

The disabled bus is causing delays on the 440 and completely blocking the one way ramp.
