  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. So why did GM decide to hold on to the Express platform for roughly 26 years?
  6. 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.
  7. So what kind of buses are they?
  8. So what is the reason behind the poor sales of Gillig buses in NYC area?
  9. So why was it doubtful that Gillig would win this order?
  10. So what are the contracted routes?
  11. Why are you posting nothing but NABI buses? I'm curious if you are a die-hard fans of them.
  12. Are those trolleys from Gillig as well?
  13. They're selling 9-year old Gillig trolley replicas already?! Either they are replaced by newer sister buses or the trolley ridership there must be pretty hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  14. For my likely sole update for the first half of 2020: 6 pictures in CTA Chicago Bus gallery. 13 pictures in PACE Suburban Bus gallery (Highlight: Pictures taken at the Cumberland and Harlem Blue Line/O'Hare Branch CTA Stations on top of PULSE-branded Eldorado Axcess BRT's. A NABI 40-LFW is featured at the first location). 9 pictures in the Palm Tran gallery (Highlight: New additions are snapshots for much of the agency's 2010's fleet except the 2012 New Flyer D60LFR's and 2016 Gillig LF 29ft.). 8 pictures in the brand-new Marty-Martin County Transit gallery (Highlight: Gillig LF 29ft. buses from Florida's youngest fixed route transit agency). 14 pictures in the Treasure Coast Connector gallery (Highlight: The agency in St. Lucie County, Florida is now predominantly heavy-duty, featuring 29ft. and 40ft. Gillig LF's). 11 pictures in Goline IRT (Indian River County, Florida) gallery (Highlight: The one-time all-cutaway agency now operates 29ft. and 35ft. versions of the Gillig LF) Hopefully, once I am able to travel to the US again after both my professional license exam in Hong Kong and the improvement of the coronavirus situation, I will keep on bringing pictures from less covered corners of Florida and beyond. Narratives on Palm Tran and the Florida Treasure Coast (Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties) agencies will come in the due course.
