    Flxible Metro

    Texas A&M still has a bunch and I believe Chapel Hill Transit has a few left.

    Flxible Metro

    Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority, SC has put 16 of their 1994 Flxible Metros up for sale on GovDeals.com. I've linked the listing page. My question for anyone who would know better, but were these the last Flxible Metro buses operated by a public transit operator in the US?
  5. I found a website for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Commission that lists VIN numbers for quite a number of vehicles. https://www.wmatc.gov/index.php/carrier-information?id=49 I was able to get most of the VINS for the buses currently in service: There are only a handful of the 2006 Thomas Saf-T-Liner HDX's in service: 63088 - 1T7YR2A2361166684 63090 - 1T7YR2A2761166686 63092 - 1T7YR2A2061166688 63096 - 1T7YR2A2261166692 2007 Gillig Phantoms 35ft: 63139 - 15GCB291071112860 63140 - 15GCB291271112861 63141 - 15GCB291471112862 63142 - 15GCB291671112863 63143 - 15GCB291871112864 63144 - 15GCB291X71112865 63145 - 15GCB291171112866 63146 - 15GCB291371112867 63147 - 15GCB291571112868 63148 - 15GCB291771112869 63149 - 15GCB291371112870 63150 - 15GCB291571112871 63151 - 15GCB291771112872 2008 Gillig LowFloor 35ft: 63159 - 15GGB271181079986 63160 - 15GGB271381079987 63161 - 15GGB271581079988 63162 - 15GGB271781079989 63163 - 15GGB271381079990 63164 - 15GGB271581079991 63165 - 15GGB271781079992 63166 - 15GGB271981079993 63167 - 15GGB271081079994 63168 - 15GGB271281079995 63169 - 15GGB271481079996 63170 - 15GGBW71681079997 2011 Gillig LowFloor 29ft: 62617 - 15GGE2713B1092267 62618 - 15GGE2715B1092268 62619 - 15GGE2717B1092269 62620 - 15GGE2713B1092270 62621 - 15GGE2715B1092271 62622 - 15GGE2717B1092272 62629 - 15GGE2714B1092276 62630 - 15GGE2716B1092277 62631 - 15GGE2718B1092278 62632 - 15GGE2718C1092279 2011 Gillig LowFloor 35ft: 62623 - 15GGB2712B1178131 62624 - 15GGB2714B1178132 62625 - 15GGB2716B1178133 62626 - 15GGB2718B1178134 62627 - 15GGB271XB1178135 62628 - 15GGB2711B1178136 62633 - 15GGB2718B1179011 62634 - 15GGB271XB1179012 62635 - 15GGB2711B1179013 62636 - 15GGB2713B1179014 62637 - 15GGB2715B1179015 62638 - 15GGB2717B1179016 62639 - 15GGB2713C1181251 2012 Gillig LowFloor 35ft: 62640 - 15GGB2715C1181252 62641 - 15GGB2717C1181253 62642 - 15GGB2719C1181254 62643 - 15GGB2710C1181255 62644 - 15GGB2712C1181256 62645 - 15GGB2714C1181257 62646 - 15GGB2716C1181258 62647 - 15GGB2718C1181259 62648 - 15GGB2714C1181260 62649 - 15GGB2716C1181261 62650 - 15GGB2718C1181262 62651 - 15GGB271XC1181263 62652 - 15GGB2711C1181264

    Gainesville RTS, Florida Update

    I have a few updates for the Gainesville RTS wiki page and I would appreciate an editor to update the page. First there are (4) new paratransit buses that need to be added to the roster. These are #4269-4272 which are 2018 Ford E450 (Likely Starcraft) which are used for the four new microtransit routes. Here are some updates for the list of routes: Route 9: Only runs Monday to Friday Route 19: Runs from Reitz Union to SW 23rd Terrace and only operates Monday to Friday in the mornings Route 21: Runs from Reitz Union to Cabana Beach and operates Monday to Friday Route 27: Runs from Rosa Parks Downtown Station to NE Walmart and operates Monday to Friday Route 28: Runs from The Hub to Butler Plaza Transfer Station and operates Monday to Friday Route 33: Runs from Butler Plaza Transfer Station to Midtown and operates everyday Route 37: Runs from Butler Plaza Transfer Station to Reitz Union and operates everyday Route 39: Runs from Santa Fe College to Gainesville Airport and operates Monday to Friday Route 40: Runs from The Hub to Hunters Crossing and operates Monday to Friday Route 75: Operates everyday Route 76: Runs from Santa Fe College to Haile Market Square and operates Monday to Friday Route 77: Runs from Santa Fe College to Cabana Beach and operates Monday to Friday Route 800: Runs from Santa Fe College to Butler Plaza Transfer Station and operates Monday to Friday Routes 601 & 602 are two new mircotransit services that provide service from peoples homes to the Rosa Parks Downtown Station on the east side of Gainesville.

This operates during peak hours Monday to Friday Route 902: A new express service that connects the Butler Plaza Transfer Station, Newberry Park-N-Ride, and Trenton Park-N-Ride.

    Lakeland FL

    Some more wiki updates for the Citrus Connection fleet: At least two new 2018 29' Gillig LowFloors were purchased. These are numbered #5221 & 5222. I'm not sure as to the numbering difference. It may be a funded by by either Pol Transit or Winter Haven Transit. https://www.facebook.com/196036905907/photos/a.430120485907/10156991450580908/?type=3&theater Lakeland purchased (5) 2005 Gillig LowFloor 29' buses from Lynx. These are numbered #701-705, the same as with Lynx. These buses also had their steel rims replaced with alcoa to match the rest of the fleet. https://www.facebook.com/196036905907/photos/a.430120485907/10156447974955908/?type=3&theater Lakeland also purchased Lynx #593, a 2006 Gillig LowFloor BRT 40'. It as well retained its number from Lynx. You can see a picture of it on their facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/196036905907/photos/a.430120485907/10155857613795908/?type=3&theater #1078 is a 35' BRT as noted in this picture from facebook: https://www.facebook.com/196036905907/photos/a.430120485907/10155189724620908/?type=3&theater #1068 is retired and was sold for scrap 2/6/2017. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1774217 #1067 is retired and was sold for scrap 12/23/2016. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1755866 #1066 is retired and was sold for scrap 2/6/2017. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1774125 #1065 is retired and was sold for scrap 12/23/2016. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1755867 #1064 is retired and was sold for scrap 11/18/2017. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1977597 #1063 is retired and was sold for scrap 3/9/2017. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1797658 #1062 is retired and was sold for scrap 3/9/2017. https://publicsurplus.com/sms/lakelandtrans,fl/auction/view?auc=1797647

    Electric buses by Gillig

    Yeah, I probably should have worded that better. Its definitely not fair to put the Proterra buses on the same level as BYD. I do remember reading somewhere that Foothill Transit had issues with the transmissions on the early models, but were still pleased with how the buses performed. Of course, those were early models that were getting the kinks worked out.

    Gainesville Regional Transit System, Florida

    So, as I suspected, the (4) new 2018 Ford E350 cutaway buses (Numbered #4269-4272) are what are being used on the new Express routes and Microtransit routes. I believe they are Starcraft bodies, but I haven't been close enough to one to confirm.
  15. alexb320

    Electric buses by Gillig

    I agree with everything stated above. You also have to understand that this is new territory for Gillig. There's going to be growing pains and they cannot be as competitive right out of the gate.
