The Toronto Transit Commission says software has been updated on its
fleet of articulated buses and they are back in service for the morning rush
hour. 
The repair was required after unexpected acceleration was discovered
Thursday during routine maintenance.
Brad Ross, spokesperson for the TTC, said Friday that means service is
normal on all bus routes.
Ross said 125 articulated buses have been updated. Morning service
requires that number of buses for service to be normal.
On Thursday, the TTC pulled 153 of the 60-foot so-called bendy buses off
the road. It advised the manufacturer, Nova Bus, of the issue.
In a news release, the TTC had said an operator returning to Malvern
Garage experienced a "full throttle," or unexpected acceleration, and had
to quickly regain control of a bus.
No injuries were reported and no customers were on the bus at the time.
The TTC said the software fix by Nova, the bus manufacturer, takes about
20 minutes per bus to complete.
There are articulated buses on the following routes: 7 Bathurst, 29
Dufferin, 36 Finch West, 85 Sheppard East, 53 Steeles Express, and 41
eele.
