  1. Cording to the NE transit the Mbta Vehicle inventory update That 1408-1415-1419 went back to Charlestown And that 1805-1837-1840 went back to Cabot they only did that switch for a little time cause the buses buses from Cabot has the operator shields and the Xcelsiors from Charlestown doesn't besides 1401 has it From the Mbta Vehicle inventory reportedly that the MBTA has exercised or will soon exercise a change order with New Flyer to purchase the additional first option bus XDE-60. This bus will be equipped for extended battery operation and will be used for testing. The test XDE60 is expected to arrive by late 2017. This contract change is not a high enough value to require a board vote. This will be Part of an option to order up to 46 additional hybrid buses with extended-range electric operation to replace the current dual-mode fleet, thus would not require a change of power between trackless trolley and diesel at Silver Line Way. Would expand fleet for the Silver Line Gateway.

The 35-foot-long buses are battery-powered, zero-emission buses. Officials said the buses are expected to have a best range of 160 miles on a full charge. The batteries are warrantied for 12 months and BYD will provide operator training and maintenance. The cost for the two, including charging equipment, is not to exceed $2.2 million. And the contract allows the PSTA to order up to 20 additional electric buses, subject to funding availability. these buses will come next year of 2018 and the fleet numbers wil be 18110-18111 they will be byd K9 models The county has set aside $589,000 for the charging station, although officials want St. Petersburg to kick in some funds.
