  1. Akron Metro Transit Police has new cars: Akron Metro RTA Transit Police Chevrolet Tahoe by Raymond W, on Flickr I have recently learned that Transit Police is an organization of the transit system and has its own sworn in officers and a police chief. I always thought it was just extra duty city officers and sheriff deputies.
  2. Got some up close time with a new Metro bus this afternoon: Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr Akron Metro RTA Gillig Bus by Raymond W, on Flickr EDIT: Just saw a new bus being towed yesterday. This does not bode well it seems..
  3. New livery for SARTA: SARTA also has a few ElDorado National Axess BRT Hydrogen Fuel Cell buses.
  4. Came across a bus being towed today.
  5. This has been a weird year for me in collecting stuff, 6 model planes in 4 months when in the past it was like 1 plane every 2 years, Here are my 1:200's reshot: * * * * * Images with a * are from the past few months
  6. Saw 2 of these buses today, assumed they are ex-Metro: City of Akron Ohio Recreation and Parks Gillig bus by Raymond W, on Flickr
  7. My shot from today of the new CNG buses, I guess the main difference between these and the other recent CNG buses is the shortened tank bump up top.
  8. Video of new livery put out by Metro., not sure if this Hybrid is a renumbered 5000 series or brand new. edit: I take back the renumbered thing, it appears to be brand new due to the window panels. edit 2: Akron has started the process to purchase 2 full electric buses in a previous board meeting. But I am unsure if the bus in the below video is one of them as it may be too soon in build time unless Gillig had some sitting on a lot. 120746696_245920843799676_606560149010466910_n.mp4
  9. Akron Metro RTA Ford Transit by Raymond W, on Flickr
  10. Transit service serving Kent Ohio and Ravenna and other parts of Portage County. They have routes going to both Cleveland and Akron. Daily fares are $1 one ride to $3 All day pass. http://www.partaonline.org Here is a photo of their newer buses: PARTA ElDorado Axess by Raymond W, on Flickr
  11. Recently saw a purple mini bus, DIdnt get a good look at it, Thought it was for SCAT but it didnt have a wheelchair loading door. Looked like it was based off a Ford Transit or Dodge Sprinter but longer
  12. New guy to the fleet: Akron Fire Department Rescue 4 Ford F-550 by Raymond W, on Flickr Lil' Putter: Akron Police Club Car Golf Cart by Raymond W, on Flickr
  13. Made my liberty red and blue, upgraded the halogen takedowns and alleys to LED and finally this past weekend, upgraded the board to Wecan so I can program it with my computer. might go for colored lenses in the future, Next thing I plan on doing to the bar is dual takedown modules, meaning 4 takedown LR11 modules instead of the 2 in it now.
