  1. 3001 was retired on Tuesday, some kind of leak. 3041, 3042, 3043, and 3044 have also been delivered. Unknown unit was spotted about 4 hours from the garage.

      I also have a photo taken by me John A Bunker of LRTA’s BRT 1904 taken on 7-21-2019 at the Kennedy Center in Lowell that I would like to request to have added to the main thumbnail to the photo 


  4. I got the opportunity Thursday to ride the first new 29 footer 3038 and I will say it was a very very nice and smooth ride! These new buses feature, driver sheilds, all electronic gauge cluster (Execpt air gauge), White Luminator Horizon (Front, side, and rear signs), American Seating Prime+ seats with American Seating's new step railing, and the words "STOP" when the driver hits the breaks in the rear. 3038 currently has around 3k miles. 3039 arrived yesterday, and 3040 arrived the day before yesterday. 3016 was retired the day before yesterday due to mechanics tired of dealing with it. 3038 wasn't suppose to enter service till mid-late spring, but they retired 3016 and had a saftey inspection last week. Anyway, these pictures are no means good quality. But I wanted to share something with everyone here in the forms.
  5. Here is the interior of 3038 the first new 29 footer BRT to arrive to MCT's garage. And the new Prime+ seating. Picture courtesy of Madison County Transit (MCT) Facebook page.

  7. Depends on where you pick your hotel. I would stay in Edwardsville-STL area and avoid Granite City/East St. Louis area though, hotels their are ratty.
  8. You can take our Madison County Transit, 1X, 5, 14X, or 16X to St. Louis from Madison County. Or Metrolink into Missouri. And I do too.
  9. The first of 42 new 29 footer Gillig's. They are continueing the current number system. Sent to me by a delievery driver for Gillig. First buses should be here by end of next week.
  10. Thanks for the compliment! Anyway I am from Madison County, IL which boarders St. Louis, and St. Clair counties. Anyway Redbird Express is over for the season, but it was never cancelled. It was once due to a driver strike but it resumed later in the season. The Phantoms and the refurbished units run the Redbird Express.
  11. Wow! St. Clair County District did get some. Thanks for sharing the article. I have rode many SCCTD buses.
  12. Yep! Also their new 30 footers. First since 2002. The Metrolink trains will also be recieving a new paint job, and a few have already recieved a new paint job. Great picture Chris!
  13. September 2019 update, MCT has released the 2020-2024 Fiscal Budget, on that Budget in 2020 there buying 42 new 30 Footer Gillig Buses there supposed to buy 9+4+9+10+5 and add 5 to the fleet, as of now there are only 37 30 footers, (3001-3037) Total to replace all 37 30 footers is $20,254,300. Then the Paratransit buses 161-189 are slated to all be replaced by the end of 2020 with the total of 29 new units, $3,461,900. Nothing planned for 2021 besides new ridefinders vans $226.000, road supervisor vehicles $100,000, and maintmance vehicles ($200,000). In 2022 all 35, 40 footers (4001-4035) are slated to be replaced and adding 5 new 40 footer Gillig buses totaling ($24,670,500) for 39 40 footers. This money comes from MCT's local county and fare money, as well as many FTA and CMAQ grants. That's what's in store for the next 4 years, Now moving on to current and past information... ACT (Paratransit) 179 and 180 were both retired, 179 was totalled in an Accident, and 180 was retired for ??. 190 and 191, both 2020 Ford Turtletop Oddessys will replace them.
  14. I accidently uploaded a picture of MCT 3015 instead of 3037. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:MadisonCountyTransit_3037.jpg
