  1. Saw this on the forums. Nassau NICE bus 2041 is visiting the MTA's Zerega facility. I wonder if the MTA is taking a look at Gillig......
  2. The train was out on a test run recently. These are not my photos, these are Marc Glucksman photos. He takes some really great photos, and these are no exceptions. https://rrdc.com/op_usa_pop_up_metro.html https://www.riverrailphoto.com/popupmetro
  3. Dispatch Control has now added Canadian plate lookups. I tried them out with some newer Canadian buses, hasn't brought back anything yet. That gives some hope. https://dcontrol.com/plate/
  4. Looks like Academy Bus Lines has placed some former LTC units at John Hopkins University in Maryland. https://www.facebook.com/AcademyBus/posts/226942616133593
  5. 930 through 941 (without 932) were bought in 2018, they became 2901-2911 and are already wrapped for Academy. I do recall seeing these two in the photo back in December 2020, so I don't know which ones these are, but they are definitely not 2009 units.
  6. Here are some photos (not mine) of a StarTrans Bus President FE, 63033. It wasn't in the wiki, but it now is. 06.WMATA.GreenbeltStation.GreenbeltMD.11October2011 by Elvert Barnes, on Flickr 08.WMATA.GreenbeltStation.GreenbeltMD.11October2011 by Elvert Barnes, on Flickr 10.WMATA.GreenbeltStation.GreenbeltMD.11October2011 by Elvert Barnes, on Flickr The buses listed as Goshen are actually StarTrans Presidents. The Goshen Sentry and the President look really, really similar. For example, this is another StarTrans President: IMG_2447 by GojiMet86, on Flickr And this is a Goshen Sentry: IMG_5731 by GojiMet86, on Flickr
  7. I'm looking at the Van Hool A300L FC section. FC4 to FC16 are 2010 units, but it says FC13 was bought in 2015. So did AC Transit just skip over the number 13 originally or something?
  8. An interior photo. There's also the Commuter. https://hometown-mfg.com/buses/commuter
  9. A Cait Sith photo from the forums. 2000 has entered service.
  10. The R211 on the move: First of New R211 Subway Cars Arrive for Testing by Metropolitan Transportation Authority of the State of New York, on Flickr First of New R211 Subway Cars Arrive for Testing by Metropolitan Transportation Authority of the State of New York, on Flickr First of New R211 Subway Cars Arrive for Testing by Metropolitan Transportation Authority of the State of New York, on Flickr First of New R211 Subway Cars Arrive for Testing by Metropolitan Transportation Authority of the State of New York, on Flickr First of New R211 Subway Cars Arrive for Testing by Metropolitan Transportation Authority of the State of New York, on Flickr
  11. Miami will acquire 42 Proterra ZX5+ buses, along with 75 Proterra chargers. https://www.proterra.com/press-release/miami-fleet-electrification/ Proterra and Miami-Dade County Announce Landmark EV Technology Project for Fleet Electrification June 22, 2021 Miami-Dade to install one of the largest fleet charging systems in the U.S. with 75 Proterra chargers across three bus depots Miami-Dade’s purchase of 42 Proterra electric transit buses brings its fleet to 75 Proterra buses With 19 megawatt hours of battery storage capacity and nine megawatts of EV charging power, the project demonstrates Proterra’s ability to offer full fleet electrification technology solutions to commercial vehicle customers Miami – Proterra Inc (NASDAQ: PTRA) (“Proterra” or “the Company”), a leading innovator in commercial vehicle electrification technology, and Miami-Dade County today announced a landmark fleet electrification project with the County acquiring 42 Proterra ZX5+ electric transit buses, featuring a total of 19 megawatt hours of battery storage capacity, along with plans to install 75 Proterra chargers across three bus depots. The first electric buses are slated to be delivered in 2022. Today’s announcement builds on Miami’s commitment to transportation electrification by expanding its fleet to include an additional 42 buses – bringing the total to 75 electric transit buses from Proterra, one of the largest fleets of 40-foot electric transit buses in the United States. At nine megawatts of power, the project is also one of the largest fleet charging installations in North America. The partnership demonstrates Proterra’s ability to deliver a comprehensive, full scale deployment of commercial electric vehicle fleets with its EV technology solutions. This includes Proterra’s industry-leading commercial vehicle battery systems, electric transit buses, and fleet charging infrastructure. “Miami-Dade County has long been a leader in advancing forward-looking clean technology solutions. We are delighted to build on our partnership together and drive the county’s switch to zero-emission, electric transportation with our EV technology,” said Jack Allen, Proterra CEO. “This is a major step forward in Miami-Dade County’s commitment to incorporate clean, renewable energy to protect our environment and offer better transportation options,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “With these new electric buses, Miami-Dade will lead the way with the largest sustainable transportation fleet in Florida and one of the largest in the nation.”
  12. I wonder if it's a combination of the 0600 and 88## (former Atlantic City units).
  13. Photo from a FB group. No, I don't know the status of the buses.
  14. The first 2 Gilligs are now on property. https://www.instagram.com/p/CPeEa-3Hdmb/
  15. The MTA will be increasing the number of the electric bus purchase from 45 to 60: https://www.amny.com/transit/mta-says-45-to-60-more-buses-in-recent-procurement-will-be-zero-emissions/amp/
  16. The following buses are up for auction: 1700 1702 1706 1738 1743 1746 1747 1749 1750 1760 1774 1780 1796 https://www.nyctransitforums.com/topic/55859-next-set-of-auctions-for-nice-are-running/ https://www.auctionsinternational.com/auction/nassau-county-mta-ny25061-25061
  17. They're not being retired; per the source, they're being sent to MTA Bus for revenue service. Everytime they move buses between Transit and MTA Bus, they have to switch out the fareboxes. Everyone, including myself, thought they were being retired, but it appears that is not the case.
  18. So it looks like 2216, 2218, 2221, 2222, 2226, and 2227 have had their fareboxes removed...... Because apparently, they will actually be entering service with MTA Bus!
  19. NICE is requesting bids for 6 electric buses. https://www.nicebus.com/About-NICE/Procurement
  20. Back in April, the C train went scheduled to go to the Bronx for the first time since 1998. It was also the first time the C used the R68 in regular service (outside of a rare one-off).

  21. SEPTA is starting a bus network redesign: https://whyy.org/articles/we-need-to-adapt-septa-launches-25-million-bus-system-redesign/
  22. Public hearings for the Red Line extension: https://www.transitchicago.com/RLE/ https://www.transitchicago.com/redext/tsd/
  23. Checked Transloc right now. Turns out they are still running, along with the other TransExpress buses. https://bny.transloc.com/
