  1. For the first time in 13 years Central Ohio Transit Authority (Cota) is buying New Flyers. To be exact 154 40 foot CNG buses (XN40) Evidence: https://www.newflyer.com/2018/03/columbus-expands-low-emission-fleet-154-cng-buses-new-flyer/
  2. Actually not sure about that maybe because they are cheaper maybe because Cota use to buy New flyers or maybe because multiple people including me emailed Cota about buying new flyers. But it must be one of those reasons Lol already said that yesterday but do you know why. I'm not sure
  3. not sure may be because at one point 65% of cotas fleet was new flyer. but now there are over 300 active gilligs but not really sure but came across article thought i would relay it here. personally getting a little tired of 100% gillig on active roster but apparently up to 154 xcelsiors with about 28 buses each year
  4. glad to announce cota will be getting 154 new flyer xn40 xcelsior evidence: http://www.metro-magazine.com/bus/news/729044/cota-awards-contract-to-new-flyer-for-up-to-154-cng-buses
  5. a good amount of the 1991 flxible auctioned in 2003 had problems matter of fact most busses sold before 2004 were in bad condition
  6. several 21xx units were sold to tarta (Toledo) evidence ( https://wikivisually.com/wiki/Central_Ohio_Transit_Authority )
  7. 2707 2727 2731 are also active certain 28xx - 10xx units have new bike racks and replaced ramps
  8. I saw 2710 2717 and 2721 downtown yesterday a few weeks ago a truck scraped across side of 1330 no damage the bus continue on route a lawnmower scraped across the side

  9. The rts was abandoned on Whittier St at a building that used to be a school it is unknown it the bus is still there update the bus was at 562 west Whittier St Columbus Ohio 43215 the building was demolished so the bus was presumably scraped completely proof of location http://www.angelfire.com/oh5/urbancolumbus/562whittier.html
