  1. New 40ft Diesel Gilligs are currently being delivered to Gainesville. There is a total of 14 for this order numbered 2101-2114. These will replace the 2001 Ex-Lynx Phantoms and likely some of the other 2001 Phantoms. *Photo Credit to El Guajiro on Flickr
  2. 599, 613, & 49-410 were sold off late last week all in scrap condition. Going early this week are: 114-412, 606, 608, 611, 616, 619, 628, 633, 806, 808, 810, 814, & 815. 114-412 was wrecked and parted out. The rest are all in various states of disrepair. Though it seems with a little work, a good portion of them can get back on the road.
  3. The new June Board Report is out. Lynx will vote to exercise the option for more New Flyer XN60 buses. It doesn't exactly say how many, but this likely will be for only 3 buses. One to replace 287-619(Which I guess they deemed a total loss) and to replace 26-610 & 27-610. https://www.golynx.com/corporate-info/board-reports-detail.stml?portalProcess_dd_0_1_1=showPublicEvent&calendar_entry_id=6676
  4. I did find out through the South Florida Transit facebook page, all 77 of the buses sold in the April auction were purchased by EG Used Truck Parts in Opa-Locka. This is a well known bus scrapper in South Florida. They scrap a lot of Miami-Dade Transit and local school buses. Sad to see since I know some of those older Gilligs were still in running condition.
  5. In May, Gainesville approved the purchase one more electric Gillig 40ft bus. Not sure if it will come at the end of this year or early 2022. Depends on what Gilligs lead-time is on these buses. I think buying only electric buses from now on would depend on how these are able to perform and hold up. https://gainesville.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4898270&GUID=94E146EC-34FF-4BB9-8EF5-34FCCD30A08B&Options=&Search= I also expect RTS to purchase more BRTs from Lynx. They've been wanting to do that for the last few years.
  6. Some info from the May Board Report. The following buses are now officially retired: 586, 588, 592, 606, 608, 611, 6116, 619, 623, 628, 633, 803, 806, 808, 814, & 815. https://www.golynx.com/corporate-info/board-reports-detail.stml?portalProcess_dd_0_1_1=showPublicEvent&calendar_entry_id=6664 Also, on April 28th, I saw T605 running on the Transsee app. I'm pretty sure this is 605, which was already retired, running as a training bus. I'm not sure if it is a normal Lynx practice to run training buses/drivers on revenue routes.
  7. Good to hear from you again! Hope you're doing good as well. Someone else beat me to it, but here's all the buses that were auctioned off on May 31st: 0004 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3903&acctid=4740 0019 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3904&acctid=4740 543 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3912&acctid=4740 0105 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3905&acctid=4740 0107 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3906&acctid=4740 0108 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3907&acctid=4740 0111 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3910&acctid=4740 2502 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=3914&acctid=4740 2502 was listed for sale in Ocala on Facebook Marketplace.
  8. New buses are hitting the streets in Orlando. These buses are numbered 323-421 to at least 331-421 per the transsee tracker. I'm guessing these are Gilligs, but cannot confirm yet. Anyone else know?
  9. BCT currently has 95 buses up for auction this weekend. 77 40ft buses and 19 cutaways. This officially finishes off the 2002/2003 Gilligs and all but a handful of the 2005-2008 Nabis. https://www.proxibid.com/National-Auction-Company/Broward-County-Fleet-Services-Bus-Auction/event-catalog/199132
  10. 43 Orions are up for auction on GovDeals. Its a various mix of (17) 30ft/40ft Orion VIIs and (26) diesel Orion Vs. I tried to get a list of the VINs, but it seems they won't release that except to the winning bidder. https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=203&acctid=20077
  11. A bunch of the Gillig BRTs are up for auction: 495 - https://www.proxibid.com/2006-GILLIG-G29D102N4-BUS/lotInformation/60479477 499 - https://www.proxibid.com/2006-GILLIG-G29D102N4-BUS/lotInformation/60479480 500 - https://www.proxibid.com/2006-GILLIG-G29D102N4-BUS/lotInformation/60479478 502 - https://www.proxibid.com/2006-GILLIG-G29D102N4-BUS/lotInformation/60479476 503 - https://www.proxibid.com/2007-GILLIG-G30D105N4-BUS/lotInformation/60503308 504 - https://www.proxibid.com/2007-GILLIG-G30D105N4-BUS/lotInformation/60503307
  12. 7131, 7151, 8054, & 8060 are being auctioned this weekend.
  13. All of Valley Metros 2007 D60LFs are retired and I know that Transit Sales International purchased quite a few of them. Only four of the 2008s have been auctioned so far, that being two in February of this year and two this coming weekend.
  14. I remember reading somewhere that a CCW conversion cost around $300k for a 40ft bus. No clue what the cost is for an artic. This is a 2007 model.
  15. I accidentally came across 21120 while it was in the middle of being delivered. Driver stopped at a Walmart in Jacksonville, FL. A real sharp looking bus for sure.
