  2. Transit Fanning Trips

    These are all the vehicles I rode between January 6th and yesterday: OCTA Route 60: 2232, 2254, 2311, 5506, 5523, 5537, 5541, 5702, 5725, 5774, 5831, 7585, 7592 Route 30: 7516 Route 35: 5666, 7529 Route 66: 2317, 5780 Norwalk Transit Route 2: 7067 Metro Bus Line 577: 7686 Line 770: 5850 Line 70: 5317, 5427 Line 71: 7542 Line 79: 7538 Metro Rapid line 720: 9228, 9581 Line 20: 5809 Metro Rapid line 745: 8061 Line 60: 5486 Line 108: 5343 Line 51: 5809 Line 202: 5318 Los Angeles World Airports 'G' Line: Unit 716 This bus ride I did yesterday is the worst mistake made in transit fanning trips as it led me to LAX instead of the other 5 Metro Green Line stations as Metro operates these shuttles. Unknown LADOT DASH route: 09312 Metro Rail Metro Red Line: Cars 601-602 Metro Green Line: 215, 1084 Metro Blue Line: 103, 110, 142, 164 Long Beach Transit Route 92: 2502
  3. https://www.kenporterauctions.com/vehicle_listing_Details.asp?id=246392 At Ken Porter Auctions, there is a 1998 New Flyer D40LF, which is unit 9806, that has been retired recently and is to be auctioned off in 4 days as a non-runner. This bus supposedly had 1,039,371 miles even though the website says it had 39,371 miles, as the odometer on these buses only have six black squares and a single white one, which don't register the millionth mile, instead starting over at zero. This YouTube video of unit 9807 listed below claims that this bus has been retired, as stated in the video's title. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjIoZXU7KTZAhXKzVQKHR61Bt0QjhwIBQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DDXlld4cBANA&psig=AOvVaw3Fp8XYkiGHx6RuZMkbL1Mz&ust=1518678559707259

  5. Transit Pet Peeves

    One of many peeves I have are: Rural areas: When I went to Ohio last November, the house I was living in did not have a nearby bus stop, which defeats my typical preference of doing bus rides often every week when I live in California. I should not go to Toledo anymore because I'm not used to living in rural areas. Riding with a relative: When I was at Ohio, I had to go with another person for a bus ride at TARTA, which hinders my intention for having more bus rides.
  6. LACMTA/SCRTD Updates

    The next set of changes that are needed to put into the LACMTA wiki pages are: Units 9981-9982 were 1998 New Flyer D30LFs. Their VINs are to be taken from Houston Metro units 4277 and 4293 in the New Flyer D30LF 'W' VINs page Unit 9983 was a 1997 New Flyer D30LF from Springs Transit as 9703, then Mountain Metropolitan Transit. Its VIN is 5FYD2TN03VU017851 LACMTA's 2003-2004 NABI 45C-LFW CNG buses (8000-8099) and 2005 NABI 40-LFW CNG buses (7525-7599) have Detroit Diesel Series 50 MK-G EPA 2004 engines LACMTA units 12500-12527 were 2001 Eldorado National MST II diesel buses.

This bus was at OCI before its retirement. The front section of LACMTA unit 6317 has been reconfigured as a display at the OCI building. It has a Luminator Horizon LED sign. Metro leased 14 OCTA GMC T8H-203 diesel buses in 1998 due to a shortage of buses in their fleet during the CNG crisis in the mid to late 1990s. Before that, 3004, 3012, and some other units were leased to Metro in 1996 with their OCTA fleet numbers and paint schemes retained, with the Metro logo placed over the OCTA 'highway' logo. These buses were then retired in April to May 2001. The following buses repainted in the 'yellow jacket' Metro Bus paint scheme include: 3019 as LACMTA 9140 3020 as LACMTA 9141 3065 as LACMTA 9142 3075 as LACMTA 9143 3094 as LACMTA 9144 3107 as LACMTA 9145 3111 as LACMTA 9146 3114 as LACMTA 9147 3119 as LACMTA 9148 3122 as LACMTA 9149 3131 as LACMTA 9150 3136 as LACMTA 9151 3146 as LACMTA 9152 3165 as LACMTA 9153

This bus had 659,371 miles and it is to be auctioned off this Saturday.
  8. This content additions page includes the following info that is to be added to Los Angeles Metro Bus and Rail articles, the LACMTA diesel Orions, as well as the former SCRTD. The LACMTA articles are in need for a serious update as it lacks the Metro Rail fleet roster. The following info that needs to be added are: LACMTA units 5300-5414 VINs are to be linked to New Flyer's 2000 model C40LF 'Y' VINs article LACMTA units 5415-5522 VINs are to be linked to New Flyer's 2001 model C40LF '1' VINs article LACMTA units 7980-7999 have been retired as of September 2017, but they still remain in LACMTA's property Units 5312, 5314-5315, 5318, 5335, 5342, 5349, 5379, 5385, 5389-5390, 5404, 5407, 5414, 5425, 5453, 5457, 5476, 5487, 5502, 5513-5514, 5517, and 5520-5522 retain Detroit Diesel Series 50G engines Division 18 has units 5342, 5349, and 5521 Division 9 has units 5382, 5452, 7342, 7350, 7376, 7483, and 7930 Active units from LACMTA's current fleet roster can be used by putting the fleet numbers (3100-3149, 3850-4199, 5300-5522, 5600-6149, 7000-8099, 8100-8400, 8401-8491, 8500-8649, 9200-9594, or 11001-11067) into the LACMTA vehicles search bar at the bottom of this page: https://www.transsee.ca/routelist?a=lametro A new page for LACMTA units 3300-3714 and 1100-1189 should be created by taking the VINs from Neoplan's AN440 'D' (1983), 'E' (1984), and 'H' (1987) VIN articles, which list these units as SCRTD 3300-3714 and SCRTD 1100-1189 LACMTA units 3000-3019 are built in June 1998 The article for LACMTA units 7525-7599 should have their VINs added and linked to NABI's 2005 model 40-LFW '5' VINs article The article for LACMTA units 7300-7514 and 7600-7949 should have their VINs added and linked to NABI's 2001 model 40-LFW '1' VINs article The article for LACMTA units 7000-7214 should have their VINs added and linked to NABI's 1999 and 2000 model 40-LFW 'X' and 'Y' VINs article, respectively The article for LACMTA units 8000-8099 should have their VINs added and linked to NABI's 2003 and 2004 model 45C-LFW '3' and '4' VINs article, respectively http://www.rapidtransit-press.com/transitsystems.html: Info from this link must be sent to articles relating to SCRTD and LACMTA, especially the ex-SCRTD GMC and TMC RTS buses that went to Transit Systems Unlimited. http://www.rapidtransit-press.com/mta.html: Info from this link must be sent to articles related to the LACMTA. http://www.webring.org/l/rd?ring=001bus;id=150;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oocities.org%2F~buslist%2Findex.html: VINs for LACMTA's 1980-1981 GMC T8J-204s, 1982 T7J-204s, TMC 1988-1989, 1992 RTS-06s, 1988-1990, and 1992 Flxible Metros are found in this link.

  9. OCTA Updates

    The OCTA bus list in one of the links didn't show 3176, but the CPTDB Wiki article listed 3176 just before the content changes. And the following set of changes need to be added onto the articles for the wiki:
  10. OCTA Updates

    The next set of updates are to be included in the OCTA CPTDB Wiki articles: Changes included in my reply above for December 23rd, 2017 OCTA unit 5701 now has 35 seats instead of 37. This bus had its original seating layout changed to match the other 5700s-5800s while it transferred from Santa Ana (base 1) to Garden Grove (base 4). The links shown below might have changes necessary for other transit systems such as LACMTA, LBT, Omnitrans, RTA, and many others: http://www.rapidtransit-press.com/art.html: OCTA ACCESS units 8401-8456 were 2001 ElDorado National Aerotech diesel cutaway buses built on Ford F-450 chassis. 10 of these units went to Anaheim Resort Transportation. http://www.rapidtransit-press.com/transitsystems.html: Units 3058, 3102, 3134, 3138, 3167, and some other OCTA units went to Transit Systems Unlimited http://www.oocities.org/~buslist/OCTA.html: All information included in that link must be added to the CPTDB Wiki articles related to the OCTA. OCTD/OCTA GMC T8H-203 serials for units 3001-3176 are assumed to be: A1196-A1371 OCTD/OCTA 4200s VINs are: K1082796-K1082858 and L1082859-L1082864 OCTA 7600s SuperBus trailers were manufactured by Magna Bus OCTA units 5401, 5301-5321 are built in 1997 OCTA units 5322-5353 are built in December 1997 OCTA units 5387-5397 and 5402-5418 are built in January 1998 New Flyer H40LF units 5419-5420 were built in January 1998 New Flyer GE40LF units 5421-5422 are built in May 2005. Both units originally had Luminator Horizon LED signs and 38 American Seating 6468 seats when they were in the OCTA. Right now, OCTA units 5421-5422 are currently at Long Beach Transit as fleet numbers 2521-2522, with 30 American Seating 6468s retained but the first set of seats were replaced with 7 American Seating InSight seats as seen in this picture below, which is hard to see since there are seats behind the front section that are obstructing them.
  11. Transit Fanning Trips

    Yesterday I went on a 14-hour transit fanning trip from 5:00 am to 7:30 pm where I rode buses in two bus systems, OCTA and Long Beach Transit. OCTA's LNG NABIs are slated to be retired this month by remaining New Flyer D40LFs in the fleet but they appear to be still operating as of today. This is not funny! I rode 2254 for at least 20 times and this bus is still in service as of today! This time I didn't ride 2254 in yesterday's bus trip.

This bus was repaired and returned to service until its retirement in 2017. OCTA unit 2308 was involved in a rear-end accident on November 7th, 2016 shortly before retirement. A motorcyclist was killed in the accident when the bus driver slowed down due to traffic congestion. OCTA unit 8363 was destroyed in an accident on October 21st, 2003. OCTA units 7530 and 7592 have Near Zero ISL-G engines OCTA units 8901-8968 were 2002 ElDorado National Aerotech diesel buses on a Ford F-450 chassis. These buses had TwinVision Amber LED signs. OCTA unit 5406 tested an experimental 2-stripe orange and blue 'Millennium Look' paint scheme variant in 2003. This experimental paint scheme is different from 5241 as it has no gray paint skirt on the bottom sides of the bus, and a large 2-tone OCTA logo on the sides and front end of that bus. OCTA unit 5578 tested an experimental OC Bus blue and orange paint scheme in 2015-2016 OCTA unit 5597 tested an experimental OC Bus blue and white paint scheme in 2015-2016, which became the finalized paint scheme for OC Bus units 5701-5858, 7621-7636, 5506, 5515, 5522, 5539, and some other New Flyer C40LFRs. Units 2296, 2311, 2313, 2317, 2324, 2340-2341, 2345, 2349, and 2357 were originally operated by First Transit while units 2297-2299, and the other 2300s were still at First Transit at the time of their retirement. Units 5129-5150, 5513, 5530-5535, 5543-5564, 5571-5599, 5601-5678, and 7501-7573 are currently operated by First Transit at the Anaheim and Sand Canyon bases Metro leased 14 OCTA GMC T8H-203 diesel buses in 1998 due to a shortage of buses in their fleet during the CNG crisis in the mid to late 1990s. Before that, 3004, 3012, and some other units were leased to Metro in 1996 with their OCTA fleet numbers and paint schemes retained, with the Metro logo placed over the OCTA 'highway' logo. These buses were then retired in April to May 2001. The following buses repainted in the 'yellow jacket' Metro Bus paint scheme include: 3019 as LACMTA 9140 3020 as LACMTA 9141 3065 as LACMTA 9142 3075 as LACMTA 9143 3094 as LACMTA 9144 3107 as LACMTA 9145 3111 as LACMTA 9146 3114 as LACMTA 9147 3119 as LACMTA 9148 3122 as LACMTA 9149 3131 as LACMTA 9150 3136 as LACMTA 9151 3146 as LACMTA 9152 3165 as LACMTA 9153 OCTA 6000s E-Z Riders had Cummins B5.9 engines with Allison Transmission B300Rs. These buses were operated by Veolia Transportation and then they were retired in July 2009.
  15. Amtrak

    BNSF Railways initially operates the Nisqually River bridge which lacked a positive train controller particularly because the BNSF trains usually move slow unlike Amtrak's freight carriers used on the Point Defiance Bypass... I suggest that Amtrak didn't have enough money to make positive train control on that bridge when it was about to be finished in 2017... this is what happens when Trump and his administration refuses to spend more on public transportation, with the money used to focus on the issues concerning the Middle East... if only did the Democratic Party in the United States were to survive last year's elections, then the aforementioned train control should've been placed on the bridge in which those two rail and transit enthusiasts would've been saved and the opening of that bypass could've been delayed to 2018 or so.
