  1. So looks like the near term future of New Orleans RTA is towards an 100% Xcelsior fleet. Am I right?
  2. Top be specific: Orion VII NG and 3G 40ft, Seattle-style New Flyer DE60LFR, XD40 and XD35 (Some 2022 examples of the former and all of the latter are in a revised livery) and probably a dwindling band of Orion VII NG 35ft on the bus side.
  3. I strongly doubt it. By the way, the agency has rebranded itself into Jefferson Parish Transit and has a totally new livery as well.
  4. The title only refers to the prevalence of RTS buses at the Texas A&M campus at the time I started the thread, and any general discussions on the Aggie Spirit fleet is welcome here. By the way, the 40ft. MTS-built derivatives are still active.
  5. I thought you are NFI fanboy judging by your frequent quoting of NFI press releases. Now I understand. Disclaimer: My transit fanning experience revolves pretty much around Gillig as I lived in Florida for 6 years and in the South for the rest of my 16-year sojourn in the US. And Gillig is the dominant heavy-duty bus brand in Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee (the 3 states I fanned the most) to say the least.
  6. I really wonder if you're a mouthpiece for NFI. Do you work for them or you simply love NFI buses? When I read your posts, I really get an impression that NFI is on a roll of late.
  7. UPDATE: There is now a second transit agency in Summit County, Utah: High Valley Transit District, and 5 Gillig buses from Park City Transit (4 x 2016 BRT's 630-633, 1 of which is now numbered 16009, plus 2010 Low Flow bus 680) were transferred to that agency. These plus at least 1 second-hand New Flyer C40LF (numbered 08004 according to this image) forms the opening heavy-duty fleet there.
  8. So why did GM decide to hold on to the Express platform for roughly 26 years?
  9. Fairfax Connector still have theirs as well. Too bad that Albany Transit System in Georgia retired theirs after only 8-9 years of use and transitioned to a largely Gillig fleet.
  10. So what kind of buses are they?
  11. So what is the reason behind the poor sales of Gillig buses in NYC area?
  12. So why was it doubtful that Gillig would win this order?
  13. So what are the contracted routes?
  14. Why are you posting nothing but NABI buses? I'm curious if you are a die-hard fans of them.
