    CityRide was run by the city directly. Originally used faux trolleys. There is apparently a successor service run by a contractor with cutaways that runs a loop between Stewart and Charleston. Also, there were 6, not 4 ElDorados for CityRide, though only 3 were used on any given day. Also, CAT had 20 similar EDN's 351-370 used on lighter routes out of Tompkins garage.

    These 25 are part of the same order as 7900-8324. Not sure why these came almost a year later. Probably money availability.

    Any idea if the vacant numbers in the 110-139 series will eventually be filled, or were these buses that were retired instead?

    So I will assume whoever id putting this stuff out on "Fandom" is full of it and can be ignored. Thank you for clearing this up.

    Maybe I am no making myself clear. I am asking about the two specific things listed above. Was this real or not? I understand about 6360-6364. I strongly suspect the two things mentioned above never actually happened, but I want to be sure as they don't really make sense.

    So are these two items real or no? I see 100-139 are good, but I am questioning the legitimacy of these!

    Two other strange things that I can"t fully explain: Hybrid RTS' s 6365-6369 r# 1400-1404? Are the 1400 numbers actually NJT? Did 6360-6369 actually ever exist as such? Also 9656 rb to hybrid, r# 9700? Never heard of this one before?? This is on the same site as the bogus artic r#

    Can anybody make sense of the renumberings of the remaining "old" 5500-5600 Artics? I see two lists out there that totally contradict each other. One has four of 5512-5530 series becoming 100-103, another has six of them becoming 1176-1181. From the 5543-5602 batch, one list has 30 becoming 110-139, the other has 35 becoming 150-184. Obviously one is a proposal, the other reality? But which one is which????

    There is info out there that Wright Streetcar 012 was never delivered and 061 is its replacement. Possibly wrecked during delivery? Specifics unknown, but all references state 50 buses in order.

    Millennium RTS

    A question regarding serials 005 and 006:Somerset 4025 is a transit. It has been stated it is ex NJT 4201. This is basically impossible as NJT was a suburban. Somerset 4025 serial 005 was almost certainly to be NJT 4202. NJT 4201 is almost certainly 006 the Altoona bus. The chances of a suburban converted to a transit are almost zero. Apparently somebody at NJT put the wrong serial in for 4201 and as the bus was never as ccepted, it didnt matter.

    Artesia NM high school buses

    Was doing some research into Millennium RTS's and came up with some interesting stuff. Artesia HS apparently got Millennium serial 001 as their "Mack II". It might still be there. This is a suburban, built by MTS from leftover TMC pieces. Operating name is Bulldog Charter. They also had until very recently a "Mack I", another transit, built by TMC as Dallas 5700, sold to school by MTS. Mack I was replaced by a Bluebird transit, same number.
