  1. This is not a photo submission thread........ Also read this: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/CPTDB_Wiki:Photographs#Photo_Quality
  2. Is there a way you can contact @Dave Mackey and have him communicate on the forum instead of the wiki talk pages? Page has been renamed.
  3. This has been a trend since 2019, hence why we recommend archiving nearly all external links when possible,
  4. This request has been declined after I've discussed options with other moderators. To quote Articulated: "The main page can be moved to the new title, but the pages for the existing buses remained under the title they were delivered with (i.e. any bus that was delivered to Port Authority would keep the Port Authority title, and any new buses delivered going forward will be under PRT titles). If PRT is just a simple rebranding similar to this, then that would be the process I'd recommend." I favor this method.
  5. This is the only link I did not rename: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Detroit_Transportation_Corporation_Joe_Louis_Arena_Station-a.jpg
  6. This is not the correct thread to be posting such a request. This thread is about renaming titles, not updating fleet rosters. Please read thoroughly before making posts in the future. This is the correct thread to post such a request:
  7. Thanks for bringing this up. I was thinking about doing this when I saw Cardinal Transportation of OH selling some Gillig LF buses. I have moved the CA page to this page: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Cardinal_Transportation_(CA) I moved your page to this link since it appears you have already made another page for the OH one: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Cardinal_Transportation_(OH) Both pages can be found here: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Cardinal_(disambiguation)
  8. This one lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5svEkex2YYo
  9. No. Please read this page: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/CPTDB_Wiki:Photographs#Photo_Quality Thanks
  10. It is not possible with NMVTIS. With Autocheck.com's VIN reports, I was able to get the city and state, which definitely makes it easier to pinpoint certain operators, organizations and owners (especially Transit Sales International). It is not legal for NMVTIS, Autocheck, Carfax etc. to give out names of owners/companies. You can try to ask the DMV, but I'm not sure how well that will go. In my case, I had prior knowledge from past research and I combine that research with new found info. I can also pinpoint where certain things went depending on the scrap yard as well. So far the only website I've seen that actually has names is specially for Ohio registered vehicles. This was the most recent link I've used, but is seems to have been taken down: https://bmvonline.dps.ohio.gov/Search/VinSearch This was the previous link, but even that one doesn't go to the new link anymore either: https://services.dps.ohio.gov/BMVOnlineServices/Search/Title I wrote down some company names on pages such as these: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Western_Reserve_Transit_Authority_8801-8837 & https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Allen_County_Regional_Transit_Authority_26-30 EDIT: This is the new link that seems to work now: https://bmvonline.dps.ohio.gov/bmvonline/search/title
  11. Not necessary. The Ikarus 286 was branded as the Orion III in Canada, not Orion-Ikarus.
  12. I had the same concern... I think the pages should be split. I just don't know how we'd go on with naming them. If we don't split them, I guess it wouldn't be a huge deal (besides blue bird as you mentioned). @Articulated
  13. My own cover lol. I can't stop listening to it for now lol.
  14. I don't have time for this project due to work and a stack of my own projects, but here is a roster Andrew Novak sent me last year. The wiki page could definitely use an update. I also helped him acquire some of the VINs for the buses and I'm about to attempt to find 1 more VIN shortly (https://www.facebook.com/groups/THEBUSLOUNGE/posts/10157181117929229/). (My name is in the credits on the PDF lol). Orange Belt Stages is now closed, I think as of 2020. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Orange_Belt_Stages OBS-Roster-11-17-2020.pdf
  15. 2 extremely useful links for bus registration & disposition info: - https://www.bumper.com/ -> Official NMVTIS data. License plate option, but can't get a VIN from plates. Standard VINs only (no serials or weird check digits/typos). Affordable subscription fee. - Removed the autocheck info link. PM me for the details. It also is currently down.
  16. Here's nearly a perfect replacement for how Vehiclehistory.com was from Feb. to June 2019 with the free NMVTIS reports. This site charges for them, but it's a flat subscription rate per month or per 3 months with unlimited reports! It's extremely affordable and fair. I tried it myself and I love it. Unfortunately you cannot get a VIN from a plate here (the only downfall). Give it a try and find more info on all of these bus VINs. Find out whether stuff went out of state or went to scrap. https://www.bumper.com/
  17. Yes there's vids on it lol. Cool info, do you know when they retired them from school tripper service and when 105 was sold off? I took these pics in December 2019. I wanna redo the exhaust on it at some point.
  18. Interesting. So far this has been a good website. The USDOT reports heavily remind me of another website I once used a lot, Quicktransportsolutions. Good info, plates & VINs too.
  19. Renamed. Sorry for the delay. I thought this was already taken care of. Thanks
  20. I convinced my friend to save one of the Ex-Foothill units in 2019. Bus runs great, but still needs some more work.
  21. Strange, it's been working for me. Try resetting your browser to the point where it clears your cookies. Although this isn't the correct page for this kind of request (it's more for bugs on the wiki portion on the website), yes I can fix it.
  22. I can rename it and make Goshen as a redirect to the new name. However, due to my time being limited, can you add in the information you've mentioned about the switch of brands/manufacturers in the text/description? Thanks.
