  1. 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 The wiki page is pretty outdated.
  2. Three more buses are up for auction on Copart: 598: 15GGD291661077378 - https://www.copart.com/lot/49314429 710: 15GGB291461077384 - https://www.copart.com/lot/49315849 653: 15GGD271481078910 - https://www.copart.com/lot/44719109
  3. Starting a new thread for Go Raleigh as there is no specific thread for this agency since their old name before they rebranded circa 2015. Old thread under the original name can bee seen here: Capital Area Transit (CAT) Raleigh, NC. I found #1300 listed on Copart.com for auction as scrap. VIN number is: 15GGD271691176726 - https://www.copart.com/lot/44408429
  4. Three of the 2007 Gillig LowFloor 35ft buses are up for auction on GovDeals.com: 0750 - 15GGB291871077700 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=44&acctid=10250 0752 - 15GGB291171077702 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=45&acctid=10250 0754 - 15GGB291571077704 - https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=46&acctid=10250
  5. 46451 was retired and sold at auction on August 10th, 2019 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/8-08131-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Manatee-County-2004-GLLG-C21A096N4/lotInformation/49615868 46452 was retired and will be sold at auction on September 14th, 2019 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08123-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Manatee-County-2004-GILL-C21A09964/lotInformation/50068646#topoflot

    Quite a few more buses up for the September 14th auction date. Includes the following: 2502 - 15GGD211551076491 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-09130-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50068738 2505 - 15GGD211051076494 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08136-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50068709 2507 - 15GGD211451076496 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08138-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50068730 2509 - 15GGD211851076498 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08113-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50068571 2511 - 15GGD211251076500 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08137-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50068710 2512 - 15GGD211451076501 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08114-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2005-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/50068572 1018 - 15GGD2712A1178025 - https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/9-08224-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2010-GILL-G27D102N4/lotInformation/50068542 Interesting two notes: 2502 was involved in a serious wreck many years ago and was supposed to have been scrapped. Also, 1018 is retired in running and driving condition. The sad story behind this bus is that this is the bus that was involved in the tragedy where the driver was murdered by a passenger back in May 2019. This incident is what has led to Hart discussing whether to install security doors between the drivers area and passenger area and it also led to the neighboring agency, PSTA, to begin installing security doors on their buses.
  7. It seems like Marta has been retiring buses fairly early over the past few years, but who knows what the real reason is. Some of the 2007 C40LF buses had started getting retired in 2017.
  8. I found an old Copart listing of #296, a 2006 Gillig LowFloor that was listed for scrap. VIN #15GGD291761076739 https://www.copart.com/lot/50559778 I was also able to find this pdf of Duluth auctioning off eight buses in January 2019 which includes: 295: 15GGD291561076738 296: 15GGD291761076739 112: 15GGB271571078306 113: 15GGB271771078307 114: 15GGB271971078308 115: 15GGB271071078309 116: 15GGB271771078310 117: 15GGB271771078310 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=11&ved=2ahUKEwiJ4sKusp_kAhUDbq0KHTmyBccQFjAKegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fdocs.duluthtransit.com%2Fother%2F20190125-Used%20Vehicles%2FSurplus%20Vehicles%20RFB%2C%202019.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0gIJZUouc58kbN6ATV_oT0
  9. Marta auctioned the following buses off this past week as scrap: 2122, 2194, 2203, 2205, 2207, 2212, 2308, 2309, 2332, 2341, 2378, 2384, 2392, 2407, 2418, 2423, 2424, 2427, 2432, 2437, 2452, & 2454 I also noted while looking at the auction pictures, there seemed to be a handful of 2010 New Flyer C40LFR buses retired. Only two I could make out for sure were 2506 & 2542, but there were a couple others with the numbers painted over. It seems weird they would retire buses only 9 years old. But I assume the large order of new Gilligs are able to replace the worst of the C40LFRs.

    2604 was wrecked and sold for scrap earlier this month. https://www.proxibid.com/Vehicles-Marine-Aviation/Buses/8-09127-Trucks-Buses-Seller-Gov-Hillsborough-Area-Regional-Tra-2006-GILL-G21D102N4/lotInformation/49615926
  11. In regards to the new XN60 buses, I noted on the bus tracker on Friday buses up to 276-619 in service. So there are at least 16 of these XN60s in total numbered, 261-619 through 276-619.
  12. Those had the C9 engines, so I imagine they were getting expensive to maintain.
  13. TriMet has started installing lights on top of their buses to help improve visibility very similar to what WMATA has on their buses. Zack Heistand on Flickr posted a picture of #3506 with these lights: https://www.flickr.com/photos/zheistand/48295927841/in/faves-78648329@N02/ https://www.masstransitmag.com/safety-security/news/21088802/or-trimet-is-testing-out-bright-warning-lights-atop-dozens-of-buses-to-improve-visibility
  14. Fort Worth Transportation Authority in Texas has purchased (4) New Flyer Xcelsior XE35 buses. I believe these will be the first XE35 buses to officially operate for a transit agency. Can anyone confirm? https://www.masstransitmag.com/bus/vehicles/hybrid-hydrogen-electric-vehicles/press-release/21088303/new-flyer-parts-fort-worth-transportation-authority-launches-zero-emission-service-with-buses-from-new-flyer
  15. I have one that is completely throwing me for a loop. I came across an old picture on Flickr of a Blue Bird bus that was operated by my local transit agency. But the bus in question is the coach sitting next to it. My first thought is that it is an old Neoplan model considering the styling, but I don't know much about coaches. Hopefully someone else can shed some light on this. *Photo credit to gg1electrice60 of Flickr. Photo sourced & linked from Flickr
