  1. Most of the 9700s that went to auction were not in running condition. Most likely the ones not worth repairing.
  2. The 28A could use them. They could also help out possibly on some Pike Ride routes, the 16A/C usually gets busy during rush hours. That’s the only ones I can think of.
  3. Wish we had a historic fleet like NYC.
  4. Has the rodeo bus been retired? You can see it in several pictures. Looks like the graphics has been taken off. https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1325&acctid=20077
  5. The test Smart Trip (can’t remember what it was called) ran until May 1999 when the current smart trip card for the rail was introduced. The buses didn’t take it back in 2002. Still had the old fare boxes. You either payed with cash, tokens, or flash passes (fare cards) that you showed the drivers.
  6. I’ll attach more later. Have a dc map on the other side. Regular fare was 1.10 and smart trip wasn’t accepted yet. I use to use the monthly bus flash pass. I forgot the manufacturer of the old fare boxes.
  7. Here are some pictures
  8. I’ll go through it later. Found my bus map from 2002!
  9. I say fill up Cinder Bed and expand West Ox for most of the VA routes. FMR could then do the Arlington routes and help more in DC. They could easily help on the 70/79 for example. I see a lot of Montgomery buses in VA on the GW parkway dead heading to start the runs.
  10. I meant D40LFR lol. I have only seen 6403, it was out this morning again. I don’t see where there is any room around Western for a new garage.
  11. 6403 is now at Cinder Bed now. Was on the 29K this midday. Also saw a DE40LFR on the beltway in Alexandria going towards the WW Bridge. Couldn’t see the number at 5 am. Possibly coming from West Ox since I see several around that time in the morning every day. (Don’t know what I pressed to center this lol)
  12. I remember back in 1999 hearing that a new rail line would most likely be built and running in 10 years!
  13. 2 buses are on govdeals in running shape. 6111 & 6113. https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1251&acctid=20077
  14. DASH’s 87, 91, and 98 are on public surplus now. Low mileage too.
  15. It will be interesting to see what they order next after next year. Wondering if 4599 will be in the order lol.
