  4. Pretty much spot on for me, but especially the first 4. My transit system used to have a "standard" style for the headsigns, but over the past few years has been updating and now there's no standard. For example: DESTINATION / VIA (7 Port Orange / 7 Via South Nova) ROUTE NAME to / DESTINATION (10 Medical Center to / 10 Volusia Mall) ROAD to / DESTINATION (11 Mason Ave to / 11 Volusia Mall) ROAD / to DESTINATION (15 Orange Ave / 15 To South & Keech) DIRECTION to / DESTINATION (20 North to DeLand) To DESTINATION (31 To DeLand)
  5. Not really a fan of the character wraps. The silver/red and white/red livery looks fantastic, in my opinion.
  6. LYNX has been awarded with a $1.9 Million grant for Low/No-Emission vehicles. They will use the money for 7 Proterra buses, and charging station and will be used on the Downtown LYMMO services. Most likely, this means some of the current LYMMO fleet will be transitioned to regular service, while some will be retained for LYMMO and LYMMO spares. https://www.golynx.com/news-events/205604-lynx-to-receive-1.9-million-federal-transit-administration-grant.stml
  7. Just a short update from Votran: 1200s: As of mid-June, the six remaining 1200s (1206-1208, 1214-1216) were officially retired. So far only 1216 has had it's equipment and logos removed, the other five are sitting in the back of the lot awaiting their fate. As of early-June, 1402 and 1408 were retired. As of today (7/1/19), 1403, 1405, and 1407 were also stripped and retired. This leaves 1401, 1404, and 1406 - only 1406 is used daily (on Route 5), the other's haven't seen revenue service in a few weeks The three 1300 Phantoms are still (surprisingly) in revenue service. The 11, 2600s entered service in mid-June, the same day as the official retirement of the remaining 1200s. The 2600s are 2019 Gillig 35' LF Diesel models, identical to the 2500s.
  8. I'm in a Transit group on FB and someone posted a photo of a 40' diesel going to Disney. Someone else commented (who it seems like works at Disney) said they are retiring some of the oldest buses, but also expanding the current fleet. No word on how many.
  9. For Votran (Daytona Beach, FL) The numbering system is just a (mostly) consecutive system 100s - Staff cars and two mini buses (not sure why they're numbered here) 200s - Supervisor vans 800s - Service trucks Buses start here, and each new type adds a hundred onto it's number. For years where two types of buses were ordered, each type gets it's own series. 1200s - 2000 Gillig 35' Phantom (retired in June 2019) (1201-1216) 1300 - 2003 Gillig 35' Phantom (1301-1303) 1400 - 2003 Gillig 29' Low Floor (1401-1408) 1500 - 2005 BlueBird All American RE (1501-1503) 1600 - 2006 Gillig 35' Low Floor (1601-1606) 1700 - 2008 Gillig 35' Low Floor (1701-1709) 1800 - 2008 Gillig 29' Low Floor (1801-1802) 1900 - 2010 Gillig 35' Low Floor HEV (1901-1909) 2000 - 2012 Gillig 35' Low Floor HEV (2001-2006) 2100 - 2013 Gillig 35' Low Floor HEV (2101-2104) 2200 - 2014 Gillig 35' Low Floor (2201-2209) 2300 - 2015 Gillig 35' Low Floor (2301-2311) 2400 - 2016 Gillig 35' Low Floor (2401-2404) 2500 - 2018 Gillig 35' Low Floor (2501-2505) 2600 - 2019 Gillig 35' Low Floor (2601-2611) The other system near me, LYNX (Orlando, FL) They have an interesting numbering system. For buses prior to 2009, they followed a 3-digit scheme, each just consecutive (last was 815). In 2009, the numbering started over a 1 with a new scheme, as follows: Buses: XXX-YZZ, where X is the bus number, starting at 1 and counting up, Y is the length, and Z is the year Y is either 3 for 35', 4 for 40', or 6 for 60' (there are 30' buses in the fleet, but those are numbered with the old 3-digit scheme. There are no plans to purchase 30' buses anymore, so I don't think there's a number for those. Service vehicles use the same system, as buses, but the X numbers aren't consecutive with the buses. In the case where multiple types of buses are purchased in the same year, fleet numbering starts with which ever type gets approved for service first. Examples: 1-409 = first bus in the new numbering scheme, a 2009 40' 155-314 - 155th bus, a 2014 35' 235-616 - 235th bus, a 2016 60'
  10. Hey everyone, somewhat new here and I decided to post my fictional transit system. My system is based on the real Votran system in Volusia County, FL (Daytona Beach). Basically, I took the existing system and then made the changes I'd do. There's also connections to the fictional Central Florida Regional Transit rail system (SunRail), which I'll outline in another post at another time. Daytime Routes: Route #: Route Name - Terminus / Terminus via Roadway Route 1: North A1A - Transfer Plaza / Ormond-by-the-Sea via North A1A Route 3A: North US 1 - Transfer Plaza / Ormond Beach via North US 1 Route 3B: North US 1 - Transfer Plaza / Ormond Beach Middle School via North US 1 Route 3C: North US 1 Commuter - Transfer Plaza / I-95 Park & Ride via North US 1 * Route 4: South US 1 - Transfer Plaza / Dunlawton TC via South US 1 Route 5: Center St - Transfer Plaza / Nova Rd & Flomich St via Center St Route 6: Derbyshire Rd - Transfer Plaza / Ormond Walmart via Derbyshire Rd Route 7: South Nova - Transfer Plaza / Dunlawton TC via Nova Rd Route 8: Halifax - Transfer Plaza / Bellair Plaza via Halifax Dr Route 9: LPGA - Transfer Plaza / Daytona SunRail Station via LPGA Blvd * Route 10: Bethune Blvd - Transfer Plaza / Volusia Mall via Bethune Blvd Route 11: Madison Ave - Transfer Plaza / Daytona SunRail Station via Madison Ave/US 92 * Route 12: Clyde Morris - Transfer Plaza / Dunlawton TC via Clyde Morris Blvd Route 15: Orange Ave - Transfer Plaza / South St & Keech St via Orange Ave Route 17A: South A1A - Transfer Plaza / Ponce Inlet via South A1A Route 17B: South A1A - Transfer Plaza / Dunlawton TC via South A1A Route 18: Williamson- Transfer Plaza / Ormond Walmart via US 92/Williamson Blvd * Route 19: Granada - Transfer Plaza / Ormond Walmart via A1A/Granada Blvd * Route 20: US 17/92 - Orange City TC / Amelia TC via US 17/92 Route 21: Fort Smith - Orange City TC / Osteen Walmart via Fort Smith Blvd * Route 22: Providence - Orange City TC / Osteen Walmart via Providence/Howland Blvds * Route 23: Saxon Blvd - Orange City TC / Providence & Fort Smith Blvds * Route 24: US 17 - Amelia TC / Seville via US 17 * Route 25: Howland Blvd - Orange City TC / DuPont Lakes Plaza via Howland Blvd * Route 26: Lake Helen - US 17/92 & Orange Camp Rd / Lake Helen via Orange Camp Rd * Route 27: SR 44 DeLand - DeLand Transit Facility / DeLand SunRail Station via SR 44 * Route 31: US 17/92 SunRail - Amelia TC / DeBary SunRail Station via US 17/92 * Route 32: Orange City - Deltona Plaza / DeBary SunRail Station via Orange City TC * Route 33X: DuPont Lakes Express - DuPont Lakes Plaza / DeBary SunRail Station via Orange City TC Route 34: Int'l Speedway Blvd - Beachside Transit Facility / Daytona SunRail Station via US 92 * Route 40: NSB/Port Orange - New Smyrna Beach TC / Dunlawton Square TC via US 1 Route 41: Edgwater - New Smyrna Beach TC / Edgewater via US 1 Route 42: SR 44 NSB - New Smyrna Beach TC / NSB Walmart via SR 44 * FLEX 50: NSB - Beachside (Hub at NSB TC) FLEX 51: NSB - Mainland (Hub at NSB TC) FLEX 52: DeLand (Hub at DeLand Transit Facility) Route 60: US 92 Connector - Transfer Plaza / Amelia TC via US 92 Route 100: A1A Trolley - Granada & A1A / Ponce Inlet Route 101: NSB Trolley - New Smyrna Beach counterclockwise * denotes either a schedule change from the real version or a fictional route Routes 1-19 - Daytona Beach area Routes 20-29 - West Volusia County Routes 30-39 - SunRail Feeder Routes (these routes were created to feed directly to the SunRail station, other routes can serve the stations, but weren't created for that purpose) Routes 40-49 - Southeast Volusia County Routes 50-59 - Flex Service Routes 60-69 - Cross-County Connector Routes 100-199 - Trolley routes The real life Night Service & Sunday Service has been discontinued and replaced with the regular routes just extended into the night and on Sunday, I'll go over that in another post another time.
