    UB Stampede

    Two other manufacturers (presumingly BYD and New Flyer) are expected to be coming sometime this spring too.

    Did the bus make any trips? I was told they did not want to get the bus registered for passenger pick up so they opted out of having it to a run.

    What is the reason for ridership dropping? Does ride sharing put a dent in public transportation ridership (Obviously, but by how much...)? One thing I have noticed in recent years, a big spike of everyday-commuters have retired from their jobs, no longer needing transportation. Doesn't seem like there is anything filling that void. Some of these items like an "enhanced website that is mobile-friendly" should be an easier task to accomplish. I would really look forward to limited stop service. I thought they were going to do that with the 5-Niagara. Maybe after the Niagara St. construction. Looks like they are starting work installing bulb-outs north of Hampshire.

    I believe only day passes and single trips can be purchased at this time.

    Nova Bus LFS (all models)

    Other than the CTA bus you posted there, those vents are usually equipped on CNG models built 2017 and after. A few agencies that have those buses... HSR, Houston Metro, NFTA, San Antonio VIA.

    Being a contracted service, sometimes the supervision has to get approval from UB Parking and Transportation, which delays a decision to detour buses. They try to do that as a last resort because of the stop on Grover Cleveland at Maynard. In the past they would have the Yellow Line buses sweep through there and have the regular North/South buses go a different way. Going south today was no better. Took over 20 minutes to get through Main and Bailey with the bottle neck at Grover Cleveland and Bailey.

    I'm sure you could find someone at Utica Station selling them! If you are really lucky you will find a half fare day pass with the numbers for the date taped on. In all seriousness, I think they were only given to organizations to give out. ECMC used to give two tokens to a patient if they asked.

    So this is why this order wasn't CNG? Only ten buses anyway.

    Palm Tran update

    The one way I can kind of see from the images you posted is the diesel and DEF doors on the curbside rear. The CNG buses do not have the fuel door in the same place from what I can tell. Plus there doesn't seem to be any CNG stickers identifying the bus as a CNG vehicle.

    Much needed for sure. Hopefully they equip another garage with CNG so all the new buses aren't at one garage.

    That would be a good idea. One of the biggest complaints was that it only cost $5 to park a car but $4 per person (round trip) to take a bus, so that four bucks adds up.

    They were just the 8400's. They park them at the north end of their road in front of the garage. The MV-1's get parked outside in back as these vehicles don't currently see weekend service. Really only the 8200's go out on weekends that I know of.

    Most of the 2002 Gillig Low Floors are retired, only 14 remain. The 2000 LFS' are all still on the road except for 2021. I would guess more than likely they will still be running next summer.

    For the State Fair, CDTA sent five buses, NFTA sent four buses, and RTS sent seven buses IIRC. CDTA services John Glenn Blvd, NFTA services New Venture Gear Lot, and RTS buses serves Hankock Airport. Buses then travel to the Pink Lot to service the fair.

    Pretty much... Newest and CNG.
