  1. To clarify, they did get their 400 buses; they just didn't enter service right away. In 1997 when the last 154 of them arrived, they made sure they got all the media's attention. Also, the article falsely calls the 1980/1981 RTSs and 1982 Neoplans "ancient." They were run down, yes, but the RTSs were bad from the start and the Neoplans just were just old. The oldest buses in the fleet were just turning 16 by 1996 and the newest buses were just turning 7 Fast forward to today where the American Ikarus (well, NABIs) are now 17 years old, a year older than the RTSs were when they were labele

  6. septa105r5/seclip9, I just want to point out that the model names New Flyer MD30 and New Flyer MD35. Not MiDi 30 and MiDi 35. I'm not trying to correct you, this is new information for me as well and I was just passing it along.

  11. They rejected alot more than 14 buses, and funding was only part of the reason. Anyone in the Chicago area could tell you that the DE60LFs as well as the DE60LFRs were giving CTA problems....
