  1. 42016D-42019D are still at Gathersburg per sightings. I can't accurately place any of the newer Ride-On buses yet as none are tracking on Transsee. Also the remaining 2009 29 ft Low Floors still in service are 5008, 5011, 5025, 5027-5029 from Nicholson.
  2. Can we get this renamed into Ride-On 42001D-42039D plz https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Ride-On_42001D-42019D
  3. DASH has put XE40 901 into service. Currently on Route 32
  4. yup. but none the newer buses can track so its hard to see where they're at.
  5. Looks like the remaining 2009 Gillig Low Floors from Silver Spring garage has been moved to Gathersburg (5749-5757) as 5755 is on the 64. I’m guessing this is in exchange for 4145D-4153D moving to Silver Spring. Not sure about 5758 yet as 5759-5770 are still at Silver Spring.
  6. Yeah they are. One person spotted them at the back of West Ox last month.
  7. It makes sense on why the 16Y added trips in the non peak direction recently (though it was unrelated to a deadhead since it was for the 7Y replacement I believe so). The 3F seems interesting, but not sure it'd work out long term. It also could be a funding issues from the FDA as likely the K9 is supported by the FDA but again not sure. Either funding issues or low ridership. Not 100% sure. FMR will likely take the 3F. I haven't heard any West Ox news yet so I bet they'll wait to see how Cinder Bed goes first.
  8. Nah they already added frequent service recently so unlikely. WMATA has announced new Metrobus changes for December 26, 2021. There’s only two noticeable changes: -Route 3Y will resume service to East Falls Church station. A NEW Route 3F will be introduced to operate alongside the 3Y between Farragut Square and East Falls Church during the Peak Hours. -For some reason, Route K9 will be suspended again. Guessing since of low ridership it seems plus the FLASH BRT is an alternative. All the other routes listed will just have schedule changes. https://www.wmata.com/service/status/details/december-2021-metrobus-service-changes.cfm?s=09
  9. Speaking of 7000 series, they will be sidelined through years end. Hasn't surprised nobody as of yet. No info in January 2022 changes yet though. However, service will begin to increase gradually as the 6000 series slowly comeback to service. All revenue 2000 and 3000 series are in service and about half of the 6000 series are in service. They will be put back into service as the parts come in and inspected. Also, while there are fewer trains, WMATA is preparing for the launch of Silver Line phase two service, as testing, training personnel and resources are required to ramp up for the expected start of passenger service in 2022. https://www.wmata.com/about/news/December-service-update.cfm
  10. not sure yet. Its only temporary atm it says and its just logos applied to the buses.
  11. Buying used buses are cheaper after all plus NC University is Transdev operated too. Could be a backlog for new buses but Im not too sure,
  12. Basically somes routes would be rerouted to the newer stations which will cutback a few routes even further. Some might also be eliminated but I'm not sure as of yet. An example is West Falls Church which used to be so busy until the Silver Line opened. Now its just a ghost town up there. Metro cut the 24T, 28T, and 23W when the Silver Line opened before and rerouted the 3T, 23, and 28 lines. For FFC, ik the 425, 427, all 493 loops, 555, 595, and 597 were cut at the same time. I don't remember what other routes were rerouted however.
  13. When the Silver Line opens, we gonna get a lot of cutbacks and eliminations coming our way.
  14. They put up 2369, 2471, 2576, and 2678 2369: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=203&acctid=5455 2471: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=204&acctid=5455 2576: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=205&acctid=5455 2678: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=206&acctid=5455
