  1. Can this pic get deleted. I didn't realize it was a lot blurry when I uploaded it https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Metropolitan_Transportation_Authority_6711-a.jpg
  2. I'm having trouble web archiving it. When I did try to check it out, its giving me a security requirement here: https://web.archive.org/web/20220813235516/https://www.copart.com/lot/47350632/salvage-2013-new-flyer-transit-bus-il-chicago-north Not sure what the problem is, when I archive anything else it works perfectly. Also, why are three XDE60s already retired? 136 was in an accident and 133, 138 had fire damage? What is going on with the XDE60s here.
  3. 4397, 4580, 4581 Queens Village to LGA 4562 to LGA 8818 delivered to Jamaica 4519 Queens Village to Baisley Park 3066 retired
  4. Ik we got 9700s still, was just asking if he saw them when he was in VA. Those 9700s mainly come out on rush hours though.
  5. At least though. Better than nothing. Likely those would be used for the Yellow Line shuttle or the old 11Y shuttle route (WMATA did say "former" 11Y which implies it was likely eliminated). But not sure if they'd go there yet.
  6. It’s why mainly a lot of outside firms and museums preserve buses instead of huge transit agencies. Can’t just save all buses as well. The second point May explain why the DE40LF/DE40LFRs were abruptly retired. I did hear rumors of the Sep 11 changes that tics might be moved to Cinder Bed. Not 100% sure on that yet however.
  7. Nice Photos! 275 and 276 are listed under "Washington Dulles International Airport shuttle fleet" they're 2013 models. Have you seen any 9700s out? Those are dropping like flies.
  8. We only got the RTS, two Fish Bowls, and that bus from Baltimore. I do wish we can preserve buses but I'm not sure why WMATA doesn't do that.
  9. I saw it in an earlier auction. Seems like it was
  10. So apparently TheBus had their new Gillig BRTs in service the whole time. Saw 63041 at Greenbelt station on Route 16. Would’ve rode it but I didn’t.
  11. How is everything I hear about the MBTA nowadays is all about bad maintenance, train derailments, fires, and the CRRC cars being pulled.
  12. I thought so too. It's likely its for service increases but I'm not sure. It gives an interesting sound. Maybe we'd get a R179 & R143 combo one day lol. 8878, 8893-8894, 8896-8897 delivered to Jamaica 9622 delivered to Tuskegee 9640 delivered to Manhattanville 3985 Fresh Pond to Baisley Park 8428, 8431 Jamaica to Queens Village 4393 Queens Village to LGA
  13. I got a feeling those XN40s are pushed until next year or something. It's still mentioned under the FY2023 report but not sure when they'd be delivered. I think the 4700s are beginning to be delivered too but it seems too I guess? How did the FFC Bus get into an accident?
  14. So 4700 tracked on July 27 on the EX1... are we getting the 4700s now or next year I'm confused?
  15. I think one the MTA fires was bc it hit a bike. But judging by this fire it seems to be heat related.
  16. Impact wasn’t as bad at least via the surveillance camera and lower speeds. Bee Line 350 literally slammed into the pole at a faster speed.
  17. An XN40 has caught fire at the Arborway garage. Bus 1691 https://www.wcvb.com/article/rear-of-mbta-transit-bus-catches-fire-near-forest-hills-station/40811014
  18. XN40 709 crashed into a subway pole earlier causing at least 13 injuries. Driver suffered a heart attack I heard https://www.nbcnewyork.com/local/surveillance-video-shows-moment-mta-bus-crashes-into-subway-pillar/3810627/ https://www.amny.com/transit/mta-bus-crash-subway-pillar-bronx/
  19. 3864, 3865, 3890, 3895, 4091, 4306, 4307, 4339 retired. 3990 Fresh Pond to Baisley Park 1515, 1520 delivered to Spring Creek 8822, 8892 delivered to Jamaica
  20. Yup they been free for a while now until just Monday
  21. Interesting, a R143 and R160 was spotted running on the J train today! Cars 8209-8212 and 8625-8268 were paired up together running a unique set today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSF0Mnkjxuw
  22. Looking at a new updated Google maps update, Looks like TheBus got more Proterras sitting in their yard. Not sure how many though and I'm still not Sure when they're going to enter service. Here's the map coordinates: https://www.google.com/maps/@38.8589546,-76.8570366,3a,75y,129.81h,90.27t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sO8ushQMMzhcLVBDYhDjM4g!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en&authuser=0
  23. I think Northern reopening and Blade's rehab being finished will replace Southern Avenue. I doubt Cinder Bed will do any non VA routes (unless they wanna throw the NH2 in but deadhead is closer to Shepherd Parkway). Western is also supposed to close in a few years too. But this is how it'd go imo: Blade would get the D6 (with splits at Western), U lines, V8, X9 again, and possibly the V7. Northern would get the 50s, 60s, 70s, and S lines back, maybe the H8 and could possibly maybe do some trips on the R2 again. Shep would take the V2, V4, and the W4 fully. Andrews can chip in the V2/V4 maybe. West Ox would get the 1, 2, and 3 lines back, alongside the 26A and 38B. Cinder Bed can get the 8W, 10A, 10B, 21C, 28F, and maybe some 28A trips. This would relieve all the work for FMR as a result, they can probably do some 42/43 trips again like they did pre-pandemic.
  24. Normal for buses to break down but NICE is really having maintenance problems?
