    Active classics: 102, 105, 107, 111, 115 and 116 Active LF’s: 9502, 9503, 9505, 9701, 9703, and 9706 Recently parked buses: 104 - Parked some time in August? 9508 - Likely retired after being parked since June 18th Provided nothing comes up with the buses, 107, 111, and 116 will probably be the last Classics on the road, as the safety on these buses expire in January 2019 And finally there is an order for 2019 Nova Bus LFS, but the exact number is unknown at this time. This is the last of the current contract we signed with Nova.

    Yup that’s me on Insta! I’ll see about editing the wiki to reflect that info. I thought I had moved the old 800’s to the retired section but I guess I didn’t!

    Too many! 😛 I believe the order is 815 to 832 actually. It seems they got a large order all at once. I got a short tour of the garage in April 2018, and when I was there I was in 826 and 830, and they still had the new bus smell. My guide had mentioned they had been delivered earlier in the year. Also part of the tour was seeing retired 808, an ex-Charlotte unit. At that time it was the only unit left in the building, as the last active one had been sent to auction in November of 2017. Retired 808 full of spare parts: Brand new 830 (if I remember correctly 831 and 832 were out for the day so 830 was the highest numbered there)

    573, 583, and 9504 (not pictured) have been sent out to Merrill Dunes paintball. They’ll make some good props! They were surprisingly intact for the most part! Active classics are 102, 104, 105, 107, 110, 111, 115, and 116... down to 8 buses. Next month will see the death of a few of these as their safeties will expire. 449 is in the shop getting 573’s(?) engine installed for the charter on June 2nd

    112, 451, 452 have been confirmed retired, their fareboxes have been stripped out recently. 817 is now retired, she had a system failure on December 20th, 2017. She is now being parted out. 448 was involved in a total loss accident on March 12th with a car and sustained serious damage to retire it. All Vicinity’s are in service now, hearing mixed reviews of them. Some love them, some hate them. I hear they are slow and I hear they are fast! But seems like they are doing well out here! Dont know if I mentioned this, but 1008-1011, and 1201-1202 have been removed from the active fleet, and were transferred to Access Transit. Access ran them for a short amount of time and parked them. Last time I saw an arboc out was 1011 running for Access in December 2017. 600’s are almost done rebuild, and now the 700’s are on their way out. 702 and 710 have retuned and are back on the road. I will update the wiki once 613 retuns from rebuild, I haven’t forgotten about the wiki guys! Just waiting until there’s more to add! Active classics (as of Friday, April 27th, 2018): 102, 107, 110, 111, 115, and 116 Dead classics (not yet confirmed retired): 103, 104, 105, 108, 109, 449, 450, and 454

    445 and 448 retired 103, 104, 105, 108, 112, 449, 450, 451, 452, and 454 are all dead. Doubt any will return to service Active classics are now 102, 107, 109, 110, 111, 115, and 116 Vicinity’s fleet numbers are 1712 thru 1715, and 1816 thru 1819. There are two orders but the buses seem to be identical, with the exception of the 1800’s having two wheelchair ramps at the front and rear doors! 1803 is off the road after a good collision with a pickup truck on March 22nd

    Three options: 1) If they are involved in an accident and make a claim with SGI, then the bus goes intact to Affiliated Auto (a scrapyard near Martinsville) for resale via SGI. 2) The bus gets sent for scrap with most usable parts removed. 3) The bus gets sent to Merrill Dunes as a prop in their yard! They’ve got lots of our former fleet up there!!

    No vicinitys yet... No idea when they are coming anymore! Classics 108, 112, 120, 450, 451, 573, 583 are all dead, and some are likely retired. 1801 thru 1815 arrived recently. They are 2017 Nova LFS, likely built in November.

    Probably not for a long time. As much as drivers like the flyers, Novas are much more reliable. You'll see 5 buses in the shop and 4 will be flyers and one Nova. And Novas are cheaper than a flyer. The city (for the most part!) wants reliable buses for a decent price. And Nova is fulfilling that now
