  1. Hi, Can someone please rename this page/page link from Madison County Transit 3038-3080 to the proper Madison County Transit 3038-3079? Thanks, CS
  2. Also add 3008, a 2010 model, and 3021 a 2011 model... You Voith fans in Miami will easily be able to spot 3008, 3011, 3012, 3019, and 3021!
  3. Upon further checking of vins on MyCarFax and the Illinois title and vin look up, I found that the contractor bought the following 3003, 3004, 3006, 3007 3010, 3011, 3012, 3014, 3017, 3018 ,3019 , 3020, 3024, 3025, 3028, 3029, 3030, 3031, 3032, 3033, 3035, 3036,and 3037. 3003-3004, 3006-3007, 3010-3012, 3014, 3017 and 3018 are 2010 models. 3019, 3020, and 3024 are 2011 models. And 3025, 3028-3033, 3035-3037 are 2012 models. Quite a few were great buses and will be missed, most served our county great for the 9 1/2- 8 years we had them. Hope they get taken car
  4. This particular unit looks to be a 2012 judging by the skid plate under the service door. It's probably 3025 or a high 3030. Because they bought quite a few from the Manheim Auction in St. Louis which is where MCT took them when there time was up.
  5. Hello everyone, this is another long overdue monthly update. Hope everyone is doing good during these tough times! Nothing new is to note on the 2020 Gillig BRT 29's besides they are in the 25k-35k miles on the odometer, and they still smell new. I haven't rode at all in Decemeber and on and off in November. Those white Luminator Titans are sweet and look great. But anyway, 2010-2012 BRT 40's are doing great, 4027 was involved in a accident last week and I believe is still out, but our body technician is the best in the area and I am pretty sure it will be back to good as new soon like 4002
  6. My LONG overdue monthly update. Hope everyone is doing good! No new news with the new buses, most are doing great all 42 are in service and operating in service. The replacement for the 35 and 40 footers will still be coming in about two years, the 2010 40's will be about 12 years old, and the 2012's will be about 10 years old. These buses should be VERY similarly spec'ed to the new 2020 Gillig BRT 29's, just that they are 11 foot longer. They also installed new lifts in the main shop in Granite City. The 2017 Ford Turtletop MCT Light duty Coach-On-Chassis units are expected to be retired in
  7. That was going to Iowa.
  8. As of now, they only have two as part of a pilot to decide if they want to change anything. And New Flyer was also awarded the contract to install chargers in the garages and rapid chargers I guess at Broadway-Taylor Transit Center, and Loughbrough Commons.
  9. Hello everyone! I am a few days late for the monthly update. Not a lot has happened but I have enough information I can update y'all on. All the retired 29 (30) footer Gillig's are off the property and either at the Manheim auction yard in St. Louis or anywhere in the United States right now. 3038-3075 are completely in service. 3076, 3078-3079 are parked on the lot and I believe have been used a few times but it's not varified if they have DCU's, Radios, or Fareboxes. Ex. 3011 was spotted in Miami-Dade Florida, I believe at a Dealership. 3077 I believe is still sitting in the gravel lot
  10. Hello buddy this is John Bunker I am wondering if you would not mind putting some pics of mine  to the Greater Portland Metro Portland Maine Roster

      Hi! No problem. I just did all the updates. 

  11. Long awaited update... Sorry everyone got busy with life LOL.. But anyway for the rest of April thru mid June 3026, 3027, 3028, 3029, 3030, 3031, 3032, 3033, 3034, 3035 and 3037 were retired which leaves no 2010-2012 29 footer Gillig BRT's left. 3067-3079 were delivered later in April after the COVID-19 Gillig Factory shutdown for some weeks. 3070-3079 arrived late April thru early early June. All 42 have been accepted and 3038-3075 are in service. 3001-3024, and 3025 and 3036 were picked up by Manheim in St. Louis and put up for auction in late to early June. 3026, 3027, 3028, 3029, 3030
  12. Update for April, MCT has recieved 28 new 2020 Gillig BRT's. 14 are still awating assembly at Gillig. 3038-3063 are inservice, 3064 -3066 are awaiting fareboxes and DCU's, they may already have them. 3001-3024 are completely retired. 3025,3026 and 3036 are also retired. That's all the new news for the new buses and retirements. MCT has handled the COVID-19 epidemic real well, they have done Saturday schedule, have two drivers on each bus (one to drive and one to clean when the bus gets to the ending point), they rotate days on and off, and give the drivers Clorox wipes and sanitizer. The overn
  13. Wow! Yeah, MCT isn't buying 35 footers this coming up 40 footer order. They have been nothing but mechanical issues the past few years. Instead of buying 35's, they will order 4 more 40 footers. They have been putting the 35's on the 1 Riverbend , 1X Riverbend Express (Occasionaly), 17 Cougar Shuttle, and 18 Collinsville Regional on Saturday and Sunday's. On the weekend the 1 is ran by the 30 footers and the 17 is ran by whatever is on the 22, which 9/10 times it's a Ford Turtletop. Today, 3045 was on the 1. Usually they only put the 2010's and 2011's on Saturday's, but since we are so low o
  14. Update: 3001-3009, 3016 and 3025 is retired. 3008 and 3025 were retired last night. 3025 was not supposed to be retired for a while, because it only had around 460,000 miles and it's a 2012. But the maintmance team decided to retire it. 3038-3047 are in service. These new buses have been having issues with the Clever Devices (DCU) that currently controls the sign. If the bus is on a bumpy or route that has high up railroad crossings the DCU disconnects. But it's new technology so it's expected. As of now MCT is on a 10 year/590k miles retirement policy. Now with the 40's it will be 11
  15. I got the opportunity to ride 3038 on the #10 today! Also got some great pictures of it! Didn't have time to get pictures of the interior unfortunately.
