  1. Another question - which is older, the silver and red or white and red scheme? Or are the white and red ones former all-white ones with just the red trim added?
  2. I have seen references to the college and international housing. Where are these locations? Off property, I imagine. Also, in the "old days", the 2600 RTS's were used for cm transport, while the 2700's were for the public. Does DT still haul cm's also, or has that been contracted out? Where are buses laid up when not in use? The garage, from looking at Google Earth, can't accommodate more than maybe 50 buses. Are many parked at hubs at night? I was at Disney last month, rode buses several times. From talking to drivers, it appears things have changed and there are now "fixed schedules" where driver stays on same "route" or group of routes.
  3. A quick question - how many routes are there? 5 hubs x 22 resorts comes out to around 100? Also, anybody know anything about Transtar who runs cast services, as I understand?

  6. More old info on GOLine GOLine all time.docx
  7. The problem is that VIN year codes do not change January 1 in all cases. For instance, on RTS' s, the year code advanced in September, per common autobuilder practice. NFIL is close to 1/1, but appears to use start date rather than completion date, so a bus finished first week or so in a month would be considered part of previous month's production, so one finished in January 1996 would have a 1995 year code. Convention seems to be year code determines, not actual delivery date, though some properties in their records go strictly by delivery date. Causes some odd roster entries...

  13. Vero Beach and Sebastian FL service is operated by "Indian River Transit" in two segments: Fixed-route service (15 routes) is operated as GOLine Dial-a-ride is operated as "Community Coach", from the same garage. Both are operated under agreement by "Senior Resource Association" Buses for both are in a common roster, but are separately identified. Am working on getting more, older fleet info. Two additional buses are as follows: Bus 245 15GGE2713G1092986 Bus 236 - this was an old Gillig bus used mostly for driver training, retired about 2016. 15GCB2118V1086971 See their website for route details golineirt.com Bus Number Type VIN GoLine.pdf Bus Number Type VIN Community Coach.pdf
  14. Correct city name for Martin County Transit from Stewart to Stuart please!
  15. There are two separate transit operations involved here: Treasure Coast Connector is based in Ft Pierce and is in St Lucie County. Martin County Transit (Marty) is based in Stuart and is in Martin County. The two do connect, but are separate entities. See their websites for specifics on routes.
