    Everett Transit, WA

    I suppose this is the end of the 1994 and 1996 Orions. Oh well, at least the Proterras look nice and are more easily accessible

    Does anyone know whether the 2000 Nova LFS will be retired before, or after the 2002 Gilligs? I'm working on cities to visit in summer 2019, and if Buffalo has any 2000 Novas left, I'd be quite interested in making the trip..

    Welp I did some poking around and here are some updates and to back up what RailBus63 confirmed (And to maybe add on some): The ex-Santa Monica 1997 New Flyer D40LFs are very much alive, I was down at the terminal for 1.25 hours and 2 came by. The ex-COTA 1999 Novas (I checked the VINs and they appear to be very late first gens. They have 2nd gen circular rear lights, but ofc, they have the aforementioned square windows*) are also alive, but man they look beat up... Not all are painted into Indygo's scheme too. The ex-COTA 2001 New Flyer D40LFs are also around but I only saw at least 1 go by. The ex-San Diego MTS 2001 New Flyer D40LF (I believe they run from 0101 up**) are surprisingly common; Indygo seems to release all the buses in their terminal all at roughly the same time, and there's usually at least 1 ex-MTS 2001 D40LF. That said, since they recently purchased them, I guess that makes sense... For what it's worth though, they didn't seem to code any of the routes into the signs. The signs still work though (One of which was displaying MTS on the rear sign...). The 2000 ZEPS Gilligs are obviously common in the rush since they're recently refurbished, but they seem to drop off really quick once the rush dies down, likely because of charge... And lastly the ex-OC Transpo 2001-2002 New Flyer D60LF were quite sparse. I didn't see any on the 39, and only one came on the 8 (It was a 2001), with low floor Gilligs (of the BRT and non-BRT variety) operating the bulk of the 8's services. I recall seeing a facebook post that they scrapped at least 2 back in February (Along with numerous LFS and 1997 D40LF), but I didn't think that the D60LF would drop off so quickly (I suppose they don't like to put them out, or perhaps multiple are out of service). No sign of the 2018 Gilligs yet. *https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Nova_Bus_LFS_'X_VINs' The youngest Indygo/ex-COTA unit would be 9927, or X3000152, whereas those first Gen 2 demos for CTA would be X3000190 and 191. **I'm not sure if they run all the way up to the COTA D40LF number set (Which would mean 29 buses, 0101-0129); I'd have to check all my photos to see how high they go (from what I saw) and they report back here if I begin to suspect that maybe they don't run all the way up to 0129. Also, are all D40LF from lower than 0130 ex-San Diego MTS? I recall hearing about Indygo purchasing 2001 D40LF from yet another agency, but I may have remembered wrong, or I may have been misinformed.

    Grande West Transportation

    Update on the LGA Vicinities: they appear to be owned by Golden Touch and are diesel unfortunately, not CNG.

    Grande West Transportation

    I don't know if these are part of a separate order or if they're part of the LGA order, but I just saw a Delta Vicinity doing terminal-to-aircraft shuttle work at LGA Terminal C so perhaps that's another order in the books for grande west?

    Cornwall Transit

    This is awesome!! Surprised that they'd choose a 6 out of all models but I guess it makes financial sense given their current fleet.

    Van Hool

    Utah Transit Authority, Baltimore's Charm City Circulator, and Krapf's are other agencies using VHs in transit service. Stanford and some university in minnesota use VHs on their shuttles..

    Do any of the NABI 40-LFW buses run on weekends (Sat & Sun, or just Sun?)or is it only Gilligs by this point?

    Stalker Buses

    9094, 1996 Nova RTS has easily been my stalker bus as of late... Used to see or ridethat thing every week a few years back, then it disappeared for a while, then lately I've been seeing that bus quite a bit. And now it's about to be retired 😥
  10. Orion6025

    Do you happen to know if those Novas are very late first gens or very early second gens? Sorry if it's a stupid question, but it's very unclear to me where exactly the cutoff between the two generations are.

    IndyGo (Indianapolis)

    Does anyone know what's up with the 1997 D40LF and the 1999 Novas? I can't seem to find a bus tracker that displays the bus numbers for Indygo.... Also, earlier this month, a photo with an Indygo Gillig BRT #1802 was posted on Facebook, en route to Indianapolis. Anyone know the scale of this order? (I can only assume this spells the end for the 1997 D40LF and 1999 Novas, if those even still exist)
  13.

I plan on adding a KL Airbus A330-300 to the list this summer. Misc. private aircraft (Both land and sea)

    Are there any 1998, or 2000 d40LF that survived the Xcelsior deliveries? I assume all the 1997s are done?
