    2019 Garage Transfers

    TL should just order more xd40’s for them, rather than giving rtc’s up.

    This has been explained many times, Transit OP's are not going to waste their time pulling out and parking vehicles in order of fleet number for the purpose of a transfer, really its the first thing that can leave the lot at that point in day. At least thats how I believe it is.

    No, not all of them, because vtc only getting 104. all 47 lfs going to rtc (t-drive) and maybe 30-40 hev’s to htc?

    When are they expected to arrive anyway?

    Looks like a bunch of HEV's coming in to retire all the D40LF's that HTC has, my question is though, are the 47 XN40's purely expansion then? What is HTC going to do with 47 extra vehicles? These should just all goto STC to retire the remaining D40LF's there.. unless HTC plans to ship out some 14/16's to STC Also, doesnt seem like any Nova's are going to STC, so why give HTC a huge fleet surplus when there's other vehicles to retire?

    It must be a game for RTC drivers, most probably hope for a NFI bus every day and cringe when they get a Nova... unless its suburban?

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Well no, the units are supposed to be for expansion (the 2018's)... so technically these shouldnt be retired at all if we're talking about 'logic' here.

    Are any of these transfers retiring rtc’s remaining d40lf’s?

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    except that STC will be getting a full upgrade on the 96 plus arctics on the 502, so they need more. And until more arrive, i don't think TL will delay routes simply because they dont have the vehicles, they have been doing reitrement defferal, so they can just keep going with it, the next XDE60 order will certainly retire them all

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QATxfcSBCNxTo69ScBB5o1OXoG2Vt43TKmfDn0N5h_4/edit#gid=151886761 Here is a short summary of my end of 2019 projections: VTC: 37 2009 Nova LFS to RTC 14 2009 Nov HEV to HTC BTC: 11 2000 D60LF's to RTC 16 2007 D60LFR's to PTC 8 2015 XDE60's to STC 26 2016 XDE60's to HTC 63 2018 XDE60's to BTC RTC: 14 2012 XDE60's to PTC All D40LF's except 5 of them Retired All 2001 Orion V's Retired HTC: All D40LF's Retired 8 2014 XN40's to PTC PTC: 1 1998 D60LF to RTC 2 1999 D60LF to RTC 17 2000 D60LF to STC STC: 20 D40LF's Retired Total Fleet: 1500 Vehicles (End of 2019) BTC, HTC, PTC & STC will be operating RapidBus routes, therefore transfers need to be made to allow for the green livery, it's possible that maybe the D60LFR's or even BTC's DE60LFR's will receive it as well? Either way, until the next batch of XDE60's are confirmed ordered, none of the existing D60LF's can be retired yet.

    I think Translink needs to go with XN60's or XD60's, the hybrids do have more power than their original counterparts, but Diesels perform better, and it's a shame that BTC will eventually be hybrid only when they have a mountain to deal with.

    The seat type mainly, also i prefer yellow bars, the silver bars make it look retro. The colours arent great
  14. I think it’ll be novabus bae hybrids that end up going there, they no longer order straight diesels anymore unless its for suburban routes, but i 100% agree with you

    Any chance Articulated buses will ever come to the CFV?
