  1. These are another set of following pages that are to be renamed: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Washington_Metropolitan_Area_Transit_Authority_4000-4104 to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority 4001-4104; it was found that 4000 does not exist as 4001's license plate (shown in picture) comes up as 1GF5ACVK0RD105290 https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Regional_Transportation_District_2000-2303 to Regional Transportation District 2001-2303; the Denver RTD roster (https://utahrails.net/ajkristopans/DENVER31Mar2018.txt Ctrl+F 2303) shows that 2000 does not exist and is instead an ex-Dallas 1964 GMC TDH-5303 New Look bus. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Optima_Bus_Corporation_American_Heritage_Streetcar_'2_VINs' to Chance Coach American Heritage Streetcar '2 VINs'; Optima Bus Corporation before 2003 was still Chance Coach and the World Manufacturer Identifier for Chance Coach 2002 and earlier model year VINs are different from 2003-2009 model VINs; also the build plates like this one (https://www.purplewave.com/auction/130605/item/D8275/2001-Chance_Coach-Transit_Vehicles-Bus-Kansas) have the Chance Coach logo instead of the Optima logo; the trolleybuses have nameplates on the front that determine whether it's a pre-2003 Chance Coach model or 2003-2009 Optima model; the same goes for the Opus buses which have the nameplate on the rear... beware that there are a few Chance Coach buses that have the Optima logo as a retrofit, like this one for example (https://www.flickr.com/photos/thetransitcamera/10110002193/) The other 2002 and prior Opus and American Heritage Streetcar VINs pages should also be renamed for the aforementioned reasons noted above.
  2. These are the following pages that are to be renamed: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Washington_Metropolitan_Area_Transit_Authority_2400-2459 to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority 2401-2459 or Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority 2401-2464; it was found that 2400 does not exist and 2465-2469 are in the same batch as 2401-2459 https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Washington_Metropolitan_Area_Transit_Authority_4201-4412 to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority 4200-4412; it was found that 4200 does exist with a VIN found on the WMATA Angelfire.com roster: http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/nebuses/rosters/wmata.html (Ctrl+F 4200) https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/El_Sol_L301-L308 to El Sol L301-L307; it was found that unit L308 does not exist https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/SunLine_Transit_Agency_FC13-FC18 to SunLine Transit Agency FC14-FC18 but there is a photo (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoCalTransitfans/permalink/2615907895124035/) that shows FC13 being a New Flyer XHE40; apparently it may have been a 2019 model separated from the rest of the batch or it had been renumbered and sold to another agency. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/ElDorado_National_XHF and https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/ElDorado_National_Transmark_RE should be renamed to ElDorado National Transmark RE/XHF because the XHF from 2006-2011 has the same design as the Transmark RE from 2000-2005.
  3. This page (https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metropolitan_Area_Commuter_System_T945-T946) has to either be renamed 'Metropolitan Area Commuter System 941-948' or 'Metropolitan Area Commuter System T941-T948' because a Public Surplus auction shows 947 being a 30 foot Gillig Phantom; and units 941-944 and 948 are also 30 foot Gilligs too; using the VIN code for 35 foot Gillig Phantoms will not work for these aforementioned units in that page.
  4. https://www.flickr.com/search/?sort=date-taken-desc&safe_search=1&tags=sunbus&user_id=22421801%40N00&view_all=1 This page (https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/SunLine_Transit_Agency_575-615) has to be renamed 'SunLine Transit Agency 575-621' because, by clicking the URL provided above, there are some photos that clearly show units 618, 620, and 621 exist as 2008 New Flyer C40LF buses; the page is not finished yet with units 589, 596-598, and 600-601 missing VINs.
  5. This page (https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Los_Angeles_County_Metropolitan_Transportation_Authority_12501-12536) has to be renamed into three separate pages: 'Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority 12500-12527', 'Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority 12530-12534', and 'Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority 12535-12536' because the URL I have provided below for the LA Metro contractor fleet roster shows units 12530-12536 are actually cutaway buses, not ElDorado MST II diesel buses and fleet numbers 12528-12529 do not exist at all. Units 12530-12534 are 2001 ElDorado National Aerotechs with Ford Econoline cabs, originally numbered 8064-8068; VINs for these buses are: 1HA06456-1HA06460 Units 12535-12536 are 2002 ElDorado National Aerotechs with Ford Econoline cabs, ex-Pasadena Transit 1764-1765 ; VINs for these buses are unknown. Units 12500-12527 are 2001 ElDorado National MST II diesel buses originally numbered 11500-11527; VINs for these buses are: 1CH89443-1CH894470 LA Metro's MST II diesel buses are missing some important stuff found in a typical bus series' info page and were renumbered out of order from their original fleet numbers.

  6. LACMTA 11038 at Los Cerritos Center, serving line 130 on January 15th, 2019. LA Metro is among the last American transit agencies to operate the Orion VI in regular service; these vehicles are contracted to MV Transportation for use on lines 125, 128, 130, 205, and 232. Metro's Orions have been plagued with the little to no maintenance work for most of their entire service lives, effectively making these buses guaranteed a risk of engine fire. Unit 11034 has been recently involved in an engine fire yesterday morning, after 11062 had a similar fate not too long ago; as a result, these Orion VI buses are about to be replaced very soon by new ENC Axess buses.
  7. http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwi2yaXtk6nhAhWhJDQIHTzlBTMQjRx6BAgBEAU&url=http%3A%2F%2Fpicssr.com%2Fphotos%2Flucian400%2Finteresting%2Fpage21%3Fnsid%3D40633006%40N04&psig=AOvVaw36IdPK17wTVldf9qpmMbog&ust=1554010893121591 I just found out some hidden info that no one has known yet while I was finishing the page for OCTA's 2006-2007 model year New Flyer C40LFRs: unit 5611 supposedly has two separate VINs: Old: '5FYC5FP117C032209', built around September-October 2007 New: '5FYC5FP147C034886', built in late 2008-early2009. Both of those VINs correspond to 2007 model year C40LFRs with C Gas Plus engines... by clicking on the link above, you will see George Lumbreras' photo of OCTA unit 5611 in the year 2010, with the license plate number '1306063'. I entered that license plate number by using that link (https://www.vehiclehistory.com/license-plate-search/) and when I did so, it gave me the VIN with the serial number '7C034886' The Cummins Westport C Gas Plus engine was discontinued in early 2008 after units 5648, and 7501-7528 from the OCTA were built by New Flyer but somehow in late 2008-early 2009, OCTA unit 5611 was built, with a C Gas Plus engine in it. I have not seen or rode this unit before; it is currently contracted to First Transit at Irvine, CA. Here is the question that you users have to solve: Why does OCTA unit 5611 have two separate VINs and is this the very last New Flyer bus with a C Gas Plus engine?
  8. This page (https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Orange_County_Transportation_Authority_5502-5599,_5601-5674, ) either needs its comma removed at the end or it has to be renamed 'Orange County Transportation Authority 5501-5599, 5601-5674, 7501-7529' if you want to merge all of the separate pages for OCTA units 5501, 7529, and 7501-7528 into the main page itself, which is huge considering there are 200 units in OCTA's 2007 model year New Flyer C40LFRs along with the 2006 model demo unit.
  9. 1. This is the big offender here: once again, the behavioral therapy sessions, which have lasted over 2 years now are annoying me so hard when I have to communicate often resulting me in constant spaz attacks an severe behavioral problems even to the point in some cases I had to hit myself because I'm cooperating with this heinous program... that stupid design! I have that 3 times per week and after each session I force myself to go on some bus trips just to try to destroy these insolent fools... these sessions are not in the position to demand anything, that nasty little paincushion! 2. I'm eating the same foods over and over again such as white rice, shrimp, bananas, the same brand of meals and snacks from Costco and not anywhere else, and what's even worst is that my parents refuse to eat or buy foods such as cheese, olives, bacon, baked potatoes, canned food, and some others they do not know how to cook or eat... what fools they are for such negligence. 3. On the streets there are cars that accelerate fired up with extremely loud engines that look like race cars in everyday life. 4. There are people who want money especially me but I refuse to give because I need the money for my own needs. 5. My dad is mad at me for shopping every day but I only do so mostly during bus trips.
  10. Lately I've been trying to get VINs for OCTA's 2007 New Flyer C40LFRs by putting the license plate numbers using this site (https://www.vehiclehistory.com/licence-plate-search/free-licence-plate-search-california.php ) but it fails, leading me into this error page because that site just had been updated, effectively making bus VINs impossible and futile to get right now.
  11. http://www.chaffeeyiu.com/photo/ladot/ladot-85001.jpg I am requesting this page (https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Los_Angeles_Department_of_Transportation_85002-85004) to be renamed as 'Los Angeles Department of Transportation 85001-85004' since there is a photo of 85001 (ex-Laidlaw 5488) with its engine open from Chaffee Yiu's website as provided in the URL above. That bus was burned sometime after receiving its new engine, paint, and destination sign.
  12. I just put up some of the VINs of OCTA's 2007 New Flyer C40LFRs, among them being in the 5502-5599, 5601-5674, and 7501-7528 series. The wiki page for these units still have not been created yet and there are many other VINs that are awaiting to be put up on the wiki. Yesterday I just saw 5866 operating on Bravo 560 and those units do not have a wiki page created yet also. The license plates for these 2018 New Flyer XN40 units are: 1535793 1535842 1535841
  13. I just put up the VINs for Duarte Transit units 101-102 by using the license plates on www.vehiclehistory.com; the VINs are located in the 2002 EZ Rider VINs wiki page. Duarte Transit unit 101's license plate is 1105068 Duarte Transit unit 102's license plate is 1105067 There is a handout which comes in a PDF online that shows the timetables for both the Green and Blue Routes. In order to access this handout, you have to download the PDF provided in this link: http://duarte-prod.civica.granicusops.com/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?BlobID=23800 Duarte Transit's actual bus yard is located near Metro's Duarte-City of Hope Gold Line Station at Duarte Rd and Highland Ave. There is a photo of that yard containing Duarte Transit buses by the user 'TransitRider F1316' at Flickr.
  14. Yesterday, I just rode some buses from Duarte Transit, which is a very small transit agency in Duarte, California consisting of 4 buses in their fleet: Units 101-102: ElDorado EZ Rider buses Units 103-104: 2006-2007 ElDorado EZ Rider II MAX buses with Cummins ISB engines and Allison B300R 5 speed transmissions This bus system has two routes: Blue Route and Green Route All rides in this bus system are free Currently, there is no wiki article for Duarte Transit yet, but I have all of the VINs for Duarte Transit units 103-104 in the 2007 EZ Rider II MAX VIN article More info for this bus system should be accessed here: http://www.accessduarte.com/dept/admin/transit_division/default.htm
  15. This is the one of many solutions into why there are a lot of unfinished, incomplete, outdated pages that need to be updated. Look, there are a lot of other wikis that allow you to get a random article yet this wiki is an exception for such features. The addition of a random page generator in this wiki should most likely have users find info in this wiki they have not seen or heard of before and it will motivate anyone for more research to update any article found on this wiki.
