    71 was in service this afternoon on one of the ML routes. My buddy from work was operating it. He said it's very nice, the doors work fast but the bus is slower accelerating than the Novas. I'm assuming it's power will be on par with the existing New Flyer buses in our fleet.

    Yes they are very nice!!! I feel these two are the new Flag Ships for BT 49 is retired from service....the fare box is removed. 50 is still listed as active. I doubt it will ever see service again. 71 is in the shop getting 49's fare box installed.

    This is correct!!! The bus board in the barn has been updated with all the new buses (Handi and Regular). 71 & 72 are listed on it. I heard rumors that they are expected to arrive any day now. Update.... 71 & 72 are here...they arrived Wednesday May 16 2018 They have the same striping as the Nova Buses. 49 & 50 are parked outside...I expect these two buses to be retired soon after 71 & 72 become active. I got to drive bus 59 last night. (the bus that hit the building last fall) It drives and steers good but it runs like crap!!! Low on power and the transmission slips when up shifting from 3 to 4.
