  5. WMATA Washington

    Interesting for Diesel Bus Orders, they are going to straight clean diesels after the past 10 years of Hybrid Bus orders. Based on this link, having a fleet of half CNG and half Hybrid is expensive in terms of operating cost. Looks like their goals is now focus on CNG and Clean Diesel this upcoming fleet plan. As seen here. https://www.wmata.com/about/business/procurement/solicitations/documents/2016 Metrobus Fleet Management Plan V2.1 - (05 Jul 17)1.pdf For CNG 60ft artic (unless others including Nova Artic join in CNG artic market), likely New Flyer may get the order.

  11. NJ TRANSIT (New Jersey Transit)

    According to one comments posted on of my youtube video (in titled: Exculsive: Krapf's Coach 2016 MCI J4500 #5060 with Detroit Diesel DD13 Engine 4/21/16), and in both wikipedia and cptdb wiki (about nj transit's bus fleet), there were some sources reporting rumors (yet to be confirmed) that NJ Transit 2017 (2018?) MCI D4500CT batch from the 2015 order 17185 (test bus), 18036 and beyond may feature Detroit Diesel DD13 engine. We'll have to wait if there's official video and/or audio recording of those buses equipped with that king of engine. Currently, MCI only offers Cummins engine for its D Series Motorcoach (D4005 and D4505, D4000CT and D4500CT)
