    Good catch! Seemed unreal...

    Crazy what the top executive is making in Syracuse!
  3. VIA Metropolitan Transit

    Way different climate, but our Nova's in Buffalo are doing great. As far as the kneeling where the bus has to be in neutral and the parking brake set, that must be the way VIA spec'd them because ours are not like that. Nova was pretty flexible with allowing the buses to be programmed how NFTA wanted them. The biggest problems we had was the engine compartment for the CNG buses run hot in the summer. But this had been a frigid winter, and they have not been any problems that I am aware of with any of the units starting. I am surprised to read about the windshield glare, usually the sloped windshield is preferred over the flat windshield on a NABI or a Gillig. The loose screw thing is a problem here too, even with the stop request cable holder brackets. We also had problems with the Nova flex system oozing coolant on the 2015 models which was corrected pretty fast.

    The Axess reminds me of the first order that LSU Tiger Trials had.

    Future changes for RTS? Possible gearing toward a grid style network over the current spoke and wheel.
  6. Centro (Central New York RTA)

    Good to know. So the RTS and CDTA buses will continue to run then till the end of the fair?
  7. Centro (Central New York RTA)

    Good question. Wonder if they will be running those final days too, if they are really there. Looking at timson98's post, doesn't sound like they are there. In that case, I wonder what agency will run with metro, like CDTA did with RTS?
  8. Centro (Central New York RTA)

    Not sure the first day, but NFTA operators should be there toward the end of the fair, I know this up coming weekend and Labor Day. The nfta operators are being sent the 1st through the 4th.

    If anybody is going to the State Fair, agencies throughout New York State are supposed to be bringing buses there to promote public transportation. I know Buffalo is transporting buses tomorrow night, was told Rochester, Binghamtom, etc.

    Some of the clips are older, almost a year old. But 9623 is not on the property. I don't recall it being auctioned. Somebody said there is a 9600 in the Tonawanda Quarry blown up. 9611 is still on property though.

    Video showing a brief look at the garage by the NFTA... (There are also other videos for body shop, unit change, etc) *If anybody knows how to shrink the video size so the post isn't so large please let me know. Thanks.

    Looks like all the 2004 Gillig Low Floor buses are retired in the 700 series. Here is a link to a board report (scroll to last page) from 5/17 stating that every bus except 705 (retired already?) listed for disposal. 806 and 810 are also listed. According to the wiki, it states all the suburban models are retired except 805. If that is the case, their fleet has gotten smaller, to less than 220 buses.

    Not a bad idea, rather walk the short distance than be late stuck in traffic! The outbound is the same as before?

    1213 was at C.S. today. More changes to come. Waiting to see what gets retired, have not seen 2112 2116 2233 2239 in a while.
