    The Bus (Honolulu, HI)

    Just as long as those buses don't come from BYD, then it's a-OK with me.

    Maui Bus (Maui County. Hawaii)

    Eyyy, nice job on the documentation. Nice to know that the EZ-Rider II's have the Cummins ISB while the Axxess' have the Cummins ISL. Kind of a shame that the only Enviro500 the city bus operated was retired for a third life on the Big Island (considering that it's used - in early mornings - for commuting hotel workers and g-men).

    Seems as though some of the Xcelsior lines are suffering with a bit of a flaw in the backdoors. Sounds like the new ones made the backdoor problem a bit worse as 870-879 also have it, but to the extent of those reopening once or twice as it closes.

    The Bus (Honolulu, HI)

    Correction: At nearly 13 years old. This is a 2006 model after all. Also, it's no wonder that I've seen Bill 77 pop up for the second time now. The price for almost everything here is going up for the sake of covering the cost of the rail system (currently $8.3 billion). Smh. The DIWA.6 eh? Can't wait.

    Now that's a whole new dimension of scatterbrain right there. Looks like someone isn't paying attention at all. Looks like that kind of damage is fixable to a stretch. I can't really see an absolute need to just end its life at Campbell Industrial Park. It'll be a treat to see that unit roll out from Pearl City - on day one - with a rebuilt face. This makes me wonder if New Flyer's warranty service is able to cover a whole unit replacement in the case of significant damage post-accident wise.

    what happened to pnwelevator

    I'm positive that it's a personal life issue, most likely moving on from bring a bus and elevator fan to a normal man with a career. While the move is understandable, it's quite disappointing to have all the videos deleted as I wanted to look back on some of his older ones.
  7. Reminds me of a recent happening on Taiwan's MRT on the Tamsui/Xinyi line, the only difference is that the one who spilled it ran off towards the nearest stop with embarrassment while the riders stared on. What a coincidence.

    BYD "E-Bus"

    Somewhere in April of this year, one of the demonstration models made its debut in Hawaii, starting with Honolulu county. It was tested on some routes featuring various running environments in a span of a month. After that, it was shipped over to the counties of Maui, Hawaii (the Big Island), and Kaua'i (timeline respective) during the summer, then shipped back to BYD. I believe that a purchase for a K9M model was made for the purpose of shuttle duty for the Honolulu/Daniel K. Inouye Airport, which is appropriate for its range. I made a very short video about it. Least to say, the ride didn't leave me with any good impressions (suspicion of quality control, what with it being Made in China). The mention of numerous mechanical and technological flaws recorded by Cali's Long Beach Transit and Albuquerque's Rapid Transit reinforces that suspicion. To add to the range issue, I'll refer to this post.

    Own any bus

    Maybe I might consider that, as most of what I mentioned in my list (with the Gillig Spirit as an exception) is what O'ahu Transit Services of Honolulu used to own.

    You're gonna have to look at the routes that are served by the Kalihi garage. I usually see them on Routes 4 and 23 during my commutes. You can also try to find them on the 6 and 8 too. The http Honolulu Estimated Arrival page is your best friend at finding them.

    The problem is that you're being immature. It's either you start being mature, thinking before you post, and making your posts believable, or you refuse and let the problem grow to the point where an admin notices it. It's your choice. It's for your own good to shape up and not throw hissy fits left and right.

    The Bus (Honolulu, HI)

    I know what I'm thinking, and what I'm thinking is for you to start acting your age, thinking critically, and backing up what you say with evidence. To see you fight off criticism by throwing a tantrum is disappointing, especially when you're twisting people's words in the quotes.

    More than half of the entire fleet is Gillig. Check the wiki. This is somewhat of a gripe that I have with this user. The guy claims on an older post that he's 28 - 30 years old, yet his critical thinking and those jumbled thoughts of said posts are more suited to that of a 10 - 12 year old. I've yet to see anyone in their 20s or 30s that behaves like that.

    I expect info on the ex-700s to come from people associated with the Navy Exchange. Unless if that driver works for the Navy Exchange shuttle, your statement holds nothing of value. Please get a better sense of critical thinking.

    You do know that when I mentioned the TMCs, I'm talking about this one, right? Where does this bus driver that you rely info on work at anyways?
