  1. I thought it was time Des Moines had its own topic. (Yet another system called DART!) The system is quite interesting to me, as it includes Orion buses and Xcelsior hybrids, in addition to Gilligs. Its also a growing TA and I like the livery. Photos of Des Moines DART are available from the Transit Camera: http://www.flickr.co...157625701556200 The following is a current article from businessrecord.com http://www.businessr...t/175/837/62076 D.M. area bus ridership up 15 percent BY KYLE OPPENHUIZEN, Staff Writer Wednesday, January 29, 2014 2:59 PM Ridership on Des Moines Area Regional T
  2. According to page 153 on the December 14, 2017 Board Meeting report, there is a project titled "2019 Conventional bus expansion" under the 2018 New Capital Program that highlights the replacement of 25 High Floor Buses with 32 double-decker Low Floor buses. What we DON'T KNOW at this moment: 1) Destination sign 2) Seats (I know they went with Lazzerini but I forgot which type). 3) Height and configurations (including the engine, doors, seating arrangement) 4) Which Orions will be replaced What we DO know at this moment: 1) Alexander Dennis will be providing the double decke

  5. The Charm City Circulator or CCC is the newest system in the state of Maryland, since the Baltimore Department of Transportation established it in 2008. The first service did not begin until January 11, 2010, with the Orange Route going east-west from University of Maryland at Baltimore BioPark (west) to Hollins Market (east). The Purple Route began service on June 4, 2010, going north-south from Baltimore Penn Station (north) to Federal Hill (south). The Green Route began service on November 1, 2011, going east-west from Johns Hopkins Medical Center (east) to City Hall (west). On June 4, 2012

  7. This content additions page is for all information that is yet to be added into Omnitrans wiki articles as well as information relevant to that bus system. The following information that needs to be added is: Units 131-141 are retired since one of those units didn't appear on the Transsee bus tracker website for Omnitrans, and I didn't see them in service as of last year. The order of 2016 New Flyer XN40s likely caused the retirement of these 2001 model New Flyer C40LFs. 2012 and 2014 New Flyer XN40s from Omnitrans have Voith D864.5 transmissions instead of Allison Transmission, as seen in
  8. This content additions page includes the following info that is to be added to Los Angeles Metro Bus and Rail articles, the LACMTA diesel Orions, as well as the former SCRTD. The LACMTA articles are in need for a serious update as it lacks the Metro Rail fleet roster. The following info that needs to be added are: LACMTA units 5300-5414 VINs are to be linked to New Flyer's 2000 model C40LF 'Y' VINs article LACMTA units 5415-5522 VINs are to be linked to New Flyer's 2001 model C40LF '1' VINs article LACMTA units 7980-7999 have been retired as of September 2017, but they still remain in LA
  9. Apparently Clallam Transit got some new Hybrid mini buses according to this article and I wonder if #629 is one of them in the attached image....: http://www.clallamtransit.com/news.html . I would guess 629 is one of them as there are photos of #624 in the above link. Also, during my recently visit to Port Angeles last month, I found some Gillig Low Floors numbered 611 up to 615 which are not listed on the Wiki. I visited Port Angeles back in September of 2012 as well and did not see any Gilligs numbered higher than #608 which is also the highest listed on the Wiki page. So if anyone has
  10. Our neighbor and friend Terry Boorman in Regina SK, owns former Moose Jaw Transit number 21, an Orion One. He urgently requires a transmission dipstick, so he can continue to run this classic bus, in his business as a party bus! Please reply 306-502-5030. Two images of this bus - in the past, when it was operating in MJT, and present day use as party bus in Regina!
  11. Could you please verify all five of these VIN numbers for these Orion I's that were operated by Clallam Transit (Port Angeles, WA)? 581 (1984 Orion I 01.504): 2B1129277E6894990 (if 6V71N engine) or 2B1129776E6894990 (if 6V92TA engine) 582 (1984 Orion I 01.504): 2B1129273E6895991 (if 6V71N engine) or 2B1129772E6895991 (if 6V92TA engine) 583 (1990 Orion I 01.507): 2B1139779L6002595 584 (1992 Orion I 01.508): 2B1169777N6003125 585 (1992 Orion I 01.508): 2B1169779N6003126 Thank you, Ben
  12. http://www.angelfire.com/ca/TORONTO/builders/orion.html If you gloss over this page (link above), Orion built three types of seating configurations for its two bus lengths (30' and 35'): transit, coach (suburban) and airporter, for a total of six configurations (this would increase to nine in 1984, when the 40' length showed up). The transit and airporter configurations had both front and back doors, but most examples of the coach configuration did not. A few exceptions to the rule did exist: transit-style buses without back doors were built for Beaver Bus Lines of Winnipeg, MB in 1985, 1988
  13. Does anyone know exactly all of the Rockwell front and rear axles that were used in the Orion I bus in all years 1976-1993? This is information I'm hoping to get added to this page in the future: http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Orion_Bus_Industries_%27Orion_I%27 Older Orion I brochures (and my 1981 TMC City Cruiser brochure) list the following: Front: model FF931, 12,000 lbs. GAWR Rear: model R143, 23,000 lbs. GAWR From the 1983 Orion brochure that I have: Front: model FF932, 13,400 lbs. GAWR Rear: model R143, 23,000 lbs. GAWR But in 1984, the 35' and 40' buses (the latter of which
  14. This will be a tough question to answer, and here it goes: were there any Orion I's built in 1984 and 1985 that used the Voith D863 transmission behind the Detroit Diesel 6V92TA engine (a la AC Transit's 1984 Gillig Phantoms numbered 1469 to 1483)? They can be model 01.502 (30 ft), 01.507 (35 ft) or 01.508 (40 ft). ~Ben
