  1. There's 3 in that order. Next year, there will be 11-12 from a Commonwealth of Virginia contract.

    Believe so. MVTARider posted it awhile back. Who submitted bids? That RFP closed earlier this month, right?
  3. No indication as of yet. They could also go to a transit museum, but the museums need money to ship something like that out there. IRM once told me they were quoted $10,000 to ship a KCM bus out to their museum.
  4. Per Matt Lee all ETIs retired as of 9/7/19.

    Looks like Met Council May get 4 MCI low floors from a joint order with AC Transit https://actransit.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4128517&GUID=D0D3F330-15E9-48DB-BF51-EA33EEACBC22 Question is - will it go to MVTA or SWT?
  6. Update from northern MN: shells of 5878, 5879, and 5880 are at Crookston and awaiting assembly. At this rate, assuming 3 shells/week, 5885 should be in Crookston next week (week of 9/15). From tracking 5798 (which was delivered to Crookston as a shell on Thanksgiving, and delivered in early January), it looks like 5885 will be delivered in the last week of October.

    I saw it when I was on my way to return a car I rented!

    Np! The only reason I ask is that, I was compiling VINs for the 989 series, and noticed that the supposed VIN for 989 was assigned to a bus from a previous order. Additionally, VINs for coaches 1046 and 1047 may be for an order that took place afterward as well.

    I just realized that there are two pages for Metro Transit's 900-series Phantoms. Which is correct? https://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metro_Transit_(Minnesota)_900-989 https://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metro_Transit_(Minnesota)_900-988 I also noticed that there are two pages for the 990 series. Which is correct? https://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metro_Transit_(Minnesota)_990-1047 https://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metro_Transit_(Minnesota)_989-1047

    Updated the Wiki with two new pages documenting the C Line buses. Leads on VINs and names greatly appreciated. Thank you Detroit Diesel 6V92TA for your help with the VINs!

    I also saw one on the 21 yesterday. I'm hearing they were also operating on the 6 and 25. I think all the 3100s are out of South. Lorenz also acquired some ex-SWT Phantoms. Saw one running for the Vikings game on Sun. They should not have retired the 7105s so soon. Perfect for extra State Fair capacity. However, I believe they will be getting more 8100s next month (purchased for the D-Line) The 8700s are gradually getting back into service. They're leasing a charger from British Columbia, but those chargers can only do 4 at a time. These can last 9 hours on the road, so they're probably being assigned to straight-through runs.

    I walked by Heywood today. 3113, 3118, and 3143 are sitting in the dirt lot, presumably awaiting sale. I also saw 3 Maple Grove units at the training facility (60127 and 60128, as well as one which number I didn't get).
