    Here is a pic I took yesterday downtown of the new Proterra Catalyst BE35 FC electric buses that recently went into service on the 722 D-Link Shuttle. These are 35 foot buses, which apparently sport a slightly different look from the 40 footers. While I think they look weird, they are fast and super quiet.

    VIA Metropolitan Transit

    The retirement of the NABI's has begun. 5 have been painted white and placed in the graveyard. It seems like they are doing a bus every day. The NABI's were removed from service last week. They won't run on any route again.

    Here's a short piece on the recent changes to the bus fleet. https://transitaddict327.com/2018/07/03/bus-fleet-update-7-2-18/

    VIA Metropolitan Transit

    Update on the bus fleet: 44 new Nova's will be delivered this year, only 16 have been delivered so far and are in service. The Nova contract was NOT cancelled, somebody apparently started that rumor to get everyone's hopes up. The 47 remaining 2001 NABI 40-LFW's were placed into storage last Friday, meaning they will never see service again. They are awaiting final preparations for retirement.

    Sad news..... the next batch of new buses (# in batch unknown at this point) are rolling in, and they are unfortunately Nova's. Buses 693 and 696 have been delivered so far. Now I'm trying to figure out why VIA is receiving more Nova's when they [supposedly] cancelled the order. This also means that the days are numbered for the remaining 2001 NABI's still in service.
  6. While I have been on Flickr for some years now, I have recently started a Blog and a YouTube page (which is SLOWLY being expanded). I post a lot of photos on Flickr often and will update my blog every week.
