  1. I've been able to figure out that 3101-3112 are 35ft. I've only seen 3113 & 3116 and those are 40ft. I know a lot of the 1600s are still in service. I see one almost every other day. I believe that B001-B011 are only spares now. Most haven't been tracked in months. I was curious if these would get converted into regular service buses, but this week is the first that I have actually seen some of them back on the tracker on the First Coast Flyer routes.
  2. I saw a post on the South Florida Transit facebook page that new Gilligs have started arriving. 2201-2206 are at least the newest ones on property.
  3. Not sure how many new 2021s Palm Tran ordered now. I've been checking with the Transsee app and still have only seen 2100-2120 tracked since late last year. But I found this picture posted by Palm Tran on their facebook page of 2132. So there is at least another 12 that haven't entered service yet. https://www.facebook.com/PalmTran/photos/4494366550633133
  4. I spoke with an RTS employee and he said the rest of these will be auctioned off early this year. The 2002/2004 Ex-Lynx Phantoms are now being used as spares and for training.
  5. That's a shame. I'm pretty sure all 4 were still in running condition. 0905 & 0907 are the last two 2009s still in service.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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
  15. 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
