    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

    A friend and I went there about a month ago, we found the following buses there: 106 117 118 369 394 399 406 408 409 411 423 428 433 436 440 441 453 461 462 465 560 564 567 568 575 585 720 724 9501 9509 9705 31 buses total All the buses are in varrying states, with some being fairly intact and others being quite stripped out. Some of the earliest buses that headed out there were 369, 720, 724, I was told. The owner was very nice to us when we told him that we wanted to shoot his buses... with cameras! Lol The classics are supposed to be around until April or May 2018, leaving 5 or 6 months of high floors service still. Meaning there is no way to tell what bus or buses will be the last one in service. As of recently, there are a few classics that are dead, but are still considered active on the roster.

    1007 had some warning buzzers go off for low hydraulic fluid and had an issue with its articulating joint. It ended up dumping some fluids before it got towed away. Maintenance ended up driving the bus to the other side of the terminal for it to be taken away. Here's a shot when it first broke down
