    Does that mean the 2000’s are safe for another year?

    Has NFTA gotten buses for 2019 yet?

    Thanks I got to remember to catch them next school year since it might be my last.

    Does anyone know when NFTA will get their new buses this year? Also are the 2000’s Novas still safe after this delivery?

    While that’s true it’s a massive service cut, from the existing 204.

    Interesting cheaper fare, full size buses but less service. Then again I don't think 204 was ever really popular so I can understand why the change is being made. L̶o̶o̶k̶s̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶2̶0̶4̶ ̶t̶r̶i̶p̶ ̶e̶s̶s̶e̶n̶t̶i̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶2̶4̶L̶ ̶t̶r̶i̶p̶s̶. However I feel like that 9:55pm trip should just be a local trip. A limited service should only be running if the local service is frequent. At 9pm passengers have to wait almost an hour for the next local bus. Edit looks like the 24A is essentially eliminated and the current trips are shifted around to either be an 24B or 24L. Definitely not happy about losing much of the express service. It'd be nice to have bi-directional morning and evening service on the 24X.

    TBH if the NFTA wanted, they could probably extend the life span of the 2000 Nova's by a couple more years. Some new doors, new paint, and a good scrub could really improve those buses. I can see these buses being able to run for another 5 years if they were maintained better.

    Just curious are passengers allowed to ride deadheading buses? I’ve seen a lot of buses deadheading from Cold Spring on Main St. I’ve seen buses in some cases displaying the route they’re going to run on and the terminal they’re headed to. i.e. 24B to Downtown while heading south on Main, passing the medical campus. Or the 13A to University heading north on Main towards University Station.

    UB Stampede

    The buses do not reflect intended seating. They are just spec’d to the most recent order from the manufacture. For the Proterra it was for Philadelphia. And for BYD it was for some agency in California. Also I was talking to UB parking and transportation their next order will most likely be 40ft. The Proterra was tested in the Ellicott Tunnel and was able to make it through. While there was talks about 60ft there currently isn’t much being being planns to demo any 60ft buses as of now. As stated before the next demo will be in September for New Flyer. No word on Nova Bus at this time.

    UB Stampede

    Passengers were able to ride but they were dropped off at the same location they were picked up. As for the full stampede run on Tuesday that canceled for passengers because they didn't want to register it. One of the demo trips on Monday did go through the Ellicott Tunnel and I do have a video of it, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to publish for other reasons.
