  1. It is confirmed on SEPTA's page that Krapf's Route A Service between Coatesville, Exton and West Chester will be replaced by SEPTA operated Route 135. Indeed, Krapf has been impacted financially from COVID and couldn't afford the loss to continue operate Route A. SEPTA provided subsidy to keep service running, and officially announced to take over that Route after Krapf's nearly 30 years of operating it since 1992 http://www.septa.org/service/bus/new-septa-route-135-coatesville-west-chester-transportation-center.html New SEPTA Route 135 Service Coatesville to West Chester Tr
  2. From this news report, looks like SEPTA will officially take over Krapf's Route A (West Chester to Coatesville line) on August 1, 2021 after 39 years of operating that route. They paid to Krapf $68,000 for the operating rights. Looks like Krapf's can't continue the A Route without additional funding following Pandemic Financial loss and at 25% of prepandemeic passenger ridership. https://whyy.org/articles/septa-moves-to-take-over-chester-county-bus-route/

  4. Yep, when they received their latest batch of 2014 XN40 as well as a small number of Ford F-550/Champion Defender CNG Cutaways.
  5. Meanwhile, from recent trip at State College yesterday. Quick video of CATABus New Flyer Xcelsior XN40 and C35LF. Impressed that the New Flyer C35LF is still in service after 21 years on the road! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kcs6de4zSPo Not that I know of although I've heard in their annual budget report, they wanted to replace their older buses (1998-2000 New Flyer C35LF and C40LF). That depends mainly on funding, etc.
  6. Krapf's 2014 New Flyer MiDi MD35 #1314 has been reported retired. #1314 was the 1st New Flyer MiDi to be ever acquired by Krapf for the Phlash Service in 2014 season when they took over it. According to sources from PMATS FB page, this bus painted white and will be sold. 2018 Alexander Dennis Enviro 200 Dart #1811 which Krapf's acquired last year has replaced it.
  7. 2012. Krapf's Transit likely acquired the last of the new Van Hool A300L buses for its Route A and Philly Navy Yard Contract. It'll be interesting to see new New Flyer Xcelsior XD60 for the new Artic Fleet for NJ Transit. https://www.njtransit.com/tm/tm_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=PressReleaseTo&PRESS_RELEASE_ID=3268
