  1. The Chapel Hill Transit system is currently a fare free service providing fixed-route public transit to the town of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and the University of North Carolina campus. The system has a wide array of routes, with about a half dozen transfer points scattered around the UNC campus. Based on observations their fleet makeup is mainly the Gillig Low Floor. Batches seem to be from 2007 (xx07), 2009 (XX09), 2012 (12xx) and 2013 (13xx). The 13xx are Hybrid units. Also in the fleet are NovaBus RTS from 2001 and 2002, some Gillig Phantom 35' of unknown year, and of course the infamous NABI 60-BRT, 2007 + 2009. Some photos of course: Note, with 1209 that could possibly be either a 2012 in a 12xx batch, or unit 12 in the 2009 batch, I didn't notice any other 12xx units, so I assume it's 2009. A few more photos, mostly of the Gilligs, if interested. Also noteworthy: Not directly operated by Chapel Hill Transit but by the UNC, P2P operates a service for UNC facility and students during evening hours when CHT service isn't running as frequently. The bulk of the P2P fleet is vans and modified vans with wheelchair lifts. However they also have three ElDorado National Transmark RE 33' units that run the shuttle routes. Here are photos of two taken in the lot which was ever so conveniently located next to the stop I happened to get off at: I didn't get a photo of the third as a van pulled in to park, and I didn't want to be in the way. I should note, these could also be the XHF model, I have no idea how/if one can tell the two types apart from outward appearance.
