  1. On the February Board Report, Lynx announced the authorization to purchase 7 Proterra 35ft electric buses and 9 Gillig BRTPlus CNG buses. https://www.golynx.com/corporate-info/board-reports-detail.stml?portalProcess_dd_0_1_1=showPublicEvent&calendar_entry_id=5983 Also, on the March Board Report, Lynx announced that buses 645 and 11-309 are being retired. https://www.golynx.com/corporate-info/board-reports-detail.stml?portalProcess_dd_0_1_1=showPublicEvent&calendar_entry_id=5999
  2. Found one of the 2014 42-BRT buses on Copart after catching fire. Based on what part of the vin you can see on the listing it is either 2213 or 2216. Can anyone confirm which bus this is? https://www.copart.com/lot/35135859
  3. I just checked my notes and you are correct. I got the vin incorrect when I updated the wiki page. 6562 is actually retired, not 6581. Thanks for the catch, that's my bad.
  4. Two more buses up for sale: 0751 - 15GGB291X71077701 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=55&acctid=10250 0860 - 15GGB271781079720 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=56&acctid=10250
  5. I went through the Marta bus tracker today to see what was running and I can confirm that the 1938-1959 & 7001-7062 matched what I was able to see on the tracker. I'm not sure if these are actually 2018 or 2019 models. Hopefully someone else can confirm before these get added to the wiki page. The only thing I found on the tracker that didn't match anything was a bus numbered 1598. Not sure what this is since the 2014 XN40s ends at 1589.
  6. 11 more buses up for scrap on PublicSurplus.com including: 2337, 2340, 2344, 2356, 2359, 2360, 2364, 2375, 2403, 2415, 2532.
  7. Brand new 2019 Gillig LowFloor BRTPlus CNG buses have finally fit the streets. There are at least eight that I have seen so far. Numbered 2901-2908. Also, 2609 was recently involved in a serious crash and be out of service for awhile. https://www.news4jax.com/news/local/2020/02/26/passengers-injured-after-jta-bus-crash-downtown/
  8. Sadly, no. Would have been cool to see pictures of RTS' in different colors.
  9. Another Lynx bus crash this week. Sadly, this one involves 287-619, one of the brand new XN60's that hasn't been in service more than a few months. https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/traffic/2020/01/31/lynx-bus-crash-leaves-people-hurt

    I was able to find some surplus auctions for some of the 2004 Gilligs. Not sure if this was all of them, but this is all I was able to find. 814 - 15GGD291941074259 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=114186 815 - 15GGD291541074260 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=115252 816 - 15GGD291741074261 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=115262 818 - 15GGD291041074263 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=114182 824 - 15GGD201641074653 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=115257 825 - 15GGD201841074654 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=115251 830 - 15GGD201741074659 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=113016 832 - 15GGD201541074661 - (Wrote down VIN, but forgot to save link) 836 - 15GGD201241074665 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=113007 837 - 15GGD201441074666 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=113017 841 - 15GGD201641074670 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=114184 843 - 15GGD201X41074672 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=114188 846 - 15GGD201541074675 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=114185 600 - 15GGD201341074268 - https://ebid.nashville.gov/AuctionDetail.aspx?auid=114183 I'll get around to adding these VINs to the wiki page when I have more free time; unless someone beats me to it.
  11. 13-309 is retired and is listed for salvage on Copart.com https://www.copart.com/lot/26502750
  12. I had it bookmarked, but the link doesn't work anymore. In addition to the 07 D60LFs, 7129, 7135, 6600, 6604, 6609, 6626, 6645, & 6647 were added to the auction late.
  13. Four more Nova RTS' are up for surplus action on GovDeals. Based on my notes, that leaves only four remaining Novas left with Chapel Hill including two 2001s (746 & 748) and two 2002s (801 & 805). 737: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=757&acctid=436 743: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=759&acctid=436 802: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=758&acctid=436 804: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=760&acctid=436
  14. I got a picture of 1704 back in April 2019 at Coach Crafters in Tavares, Florida awaiting repairs from a serious front-end crash. I assume by now, this bus has already been repaired and returned.
  15. Late response, I know, but I found some information on these buses. These are Freightliner/Champion Cutaway buses with a (6.7L Diesel? engine). There were a total of twenty-six buses numbered 1301-1326. Over the past year or so that I have been keeping up with JTA, I have only been able to find 1321-1326 on the Transsee.ca tracker and were still running as of December 2019. Per JTA's 2018 Transit Asset Management Plan, all 26 of these buses are slated to be replaced by the end of 2020. Presumably, most are already retired. Two buses are up for sale on GovDeals: 1309: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=5316&acctid=5389 1310: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=5315&acctid=5389
