    I'm a transit buff that loves all things trains and buses.

    I tend to largely focus on Queens when busfanning, specifically around Astoria and Long Island City.

  5. Hmmm, they have supplied buses to Suffolk County, and they will actually deliver buses to Nassau County. It's not the MTA, but technically it is New York and technically it is transit. As for WMATA, they delivered 20 buses, all in the late 1980s. BUT they put the same customers down in the New Flyer powerpoint, and those make more sense (MTA, WMATA, SD, LV, and MN all have XD60s) so someone forgot to change the slide.
  6. The Final EIS for the Glassboro-Camden line has been released. It's expected to be a DMU light rail operated by NJT, similar to the Riverline: http://glassborocamdenline.com/post/final_eis_document
  7. It's a little confusing. They definitely, for sure, considered having one fleet for all lines. But this other page suggests they will be separate: http://www.riderta.com/pillarstudies#railcar Or maybe it's the other way around. They considered two separate fleets, but now it will be just one car?...

    Metro Transit

    Some years back, a Gillig Phantom from the Minneapolis area ended up with Private Transportation in Brooklyn. Now, for years I had assumed 535 was former MTS 6089 because the VIN ended in in X1110098. But I checked out the full VIN again, and it comes out as Metro Transit 604. Except I'm now a little confused, because X1110098 is the VIN for 6089, but it also happens to be the last digits for 604. So is it possible that the X1110094-X1110098 block were originally Metro Transit 600-604, but then transferred to MTS? https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Gillig_Phantom_'X_VINs'
  11. It looks destined to wipe all of them out. I wonder what will replace the 800s. Maybe MCI coaches? Or perhaps more New Flyers with suburban seating.
  12. New Flyer has won the contract with Bee-Line. Base order is for 66 XDE40, with options for 52 XDE40 and 10 XDE35. https://www.newflyer.com/content/2021/02/westchester-county-awards-new-flyer-a-contract-for-up-to-128-hybrid-electric-xcelsior-transit-buses/?
  13. Sorry, my mistake, had the other page in mind.
  14. I got curious about the fate of the GO Transit buses in Miami. I found a vehicle list online about Miami-Dade Transit contractor America's Transportation a few days ago, and gathered info from online photos on its website. This is what I gathered; old GO numbers on left, new numbers on right (first two digits are supposed to be number of seats): 2135 - 5772 2136 - 5773 2137 - 5771 2152 - 5779 2163 - 5777 2169 - 5778 2191 - 5774 2211 - 5775 2212 - 5776 2268 - 5783 2276 - 5782 2322 - 5597 2329 - 55100 2334 - ? 2340
