I am a former OC Transpo operator. I drove most of the remaining Ikaruses from 2000-early 2003. I can tell you that the last 2 on the road were 8763 and (unbelievably) 8604 which was one of the most rusty and poorly tuned (slow) Ikaruses in the fleet at that point. Of all the models of buses that I drove (until 2011) when I moved on to other positions, the Ikaruses were my favorite, even though they had a lot of faults. The worst ones were horrible but the best ones were a blast to drive (when they were well tuned). My favorites were 8501, 8517, 8528, 8607, 8627, 8654, 8729, 8737, 8747, 8869.
