  1. 0721 got added to the November auction late. Surprisingly, all of these buses sold for a lot cheaper than Palm Tran buses generally do. 0705 and 0721 were purchased by Coach Crafters. Not sure about the rest.
  2. Are you guys sure that is not a contract for up to 146 buses over multiple years? Broward has always struggled with funding for buses, so 146 in one year just doesn't sound right.
  3. 6015 fell into a sinkhole today. Pretty crazy of a situation. Also looks like the roof may have been damaged while they were lifting it out. https://www.masstransitmag.com/bus/vehicles/article/21112225/back-end-of-port-authority-of-allegheny-county-bus-falls-into-sinkhole
  4. Waiting upon grant approval, WSDOT will have Siemens convert three Jumbo Mark II to a hybrid electric propulsion. https://www.masstransitmag.com/alt-mobility/water-transportation/press-release/21111711/washington-state-department-of-transportation-wsdot-wsdot-secures-new-funding-for-cleaner-greener-ferries
  5. Palm Tran currently has six buses up for auction: 0705 - http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1503&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6 0707 - http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1504&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6 0708 - http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1506&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6 0711 - http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1508&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6 0713 - http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1509&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6 0718 - http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1513&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6 These is also a 2008 Chevrolet Crusader Paratransit bus for auction. Unknown what number this is. http://discover.pbcgov.org/ofmb/thriftstore/Lists/ViewBidLots/DispForm.aspx?ID=1502&ContentTypeId=0x010019D0AA7958C125419BF2B9932B8199F6
  6. Out of curiosity, does anyone know how well those CCW Gilligs are holding up?
  7. A few updates for Chapel Hill Transit: As of December 2018 there were six new 40ft Gillig LowFloor buses delivered numbered 1801-1806. This info comes from an advertising document released by Chapel Hill Transit: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=13&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwizl62e5rrlAhVHb60KHSlQClIQFjAMegQIAxAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.townofchapelhill.org%2Fhome%2Fshowdocument%3Fid%3D41392&usg=AOvVaw0iyVG8wAZUeh1gLahbC2sP Also, there is a picture of #1806 posted to Flickr by MJofLakeland1. Link MJofLakeland1 on Flickr also posted some other pictures of some North Carolina buses that were taken in September of this year. I noticed that it seemed some of the Chapel Hill buses, including the Nabi artics were renumbered. Only one I know of for sure is that #1907 was renumbered to #7719. You can see his album of the North Carolina buses here: Link
  8. Three more Gilligs up for auction: 0535 - 15GGB291951076746 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=47&acctid=10250 0753 - 15GGB291371077703 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=48&acctid=10250 0755 - 15GGB291771077705 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=49&acctid=10250
  9. Red Rose Transit has put their 2007 Gillig BRTs up for auction: 172: 15GGE291X61091264 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=44&acctid=10251 173: 15GGB291271077773 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=45&acctid=10251 174: 15GGB291471077774 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=46&acctid=10251 175: 15GGB291671077775 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=47&acctid=10251 176: 15GGB291871077776 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=48&acctid=10251 177: 15GGB291X71077777 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=49&acctid=10251

    Three more 2005 Gillig BRTs are up for auction: 2504: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/10-09133-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50715914 2506: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/10-08134-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50715913 2510: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/10-09132-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50715912 So it seems the September auction links are broken for some reason. So here are the correct ones: 2502: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-09130-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GLLG-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50209894 2505: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08136-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GLLG-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50210057 2507: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08138-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50209886 2509: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08113-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GLLG-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50209819 2511: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08137-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GLLG-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50210058 2512: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08114-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GLLG-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50209820 1018: https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08224-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2010-GILL-G27D102N4/lotInformation/50209793
  11. Cedar Rapids auctioned off three 92 models in May of this year. Are these the same ones you are referring to? I know one of them did get bought by a collector. https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=2382&acctid=484 https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=2380&acctid=484 https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=2381&acctid=484
  12. Dash has put 13 buses up for auction on PublicSurplus.com. Auction includes: 69, 72, 73, 76, 81, 82, 83, 92, 93, 94, 101, 102, & 103. Its a shame to see the Phantoms go.
  13. 655 was involved in an wreck and turned over on I-4 in Orlando yesterday. Nine people taken to the hospital including the driver and thankfully no one was seriously injured. https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/news/2019/10/01/interstate-4-crashes#
  14. https://www.masstransitmag.com/bus/vehicles/press-release/21107861/alexander-dennis-inc-alexander-dennis-enviro200-starts-sixmonth-revenue-trial-with-marta Interesting small article. Makes me wonder if the Enviro200 will catch on with American agencies especially with complying with the Buy American.
  15. Chapel Hill Transit still has some of their 2001 & 2002 RTS' around, but per a board committee meeting in April 2019, they are being replaced this year. Not sure if they have officially retired them all as of yet though. Anyone know if Chittenden County Transit retired all the remaining 2002 RTS'? The wiki page is pretty outdated.
