  1. I found this old RTS bus laid up near Paddy's Pond outside St. John's, Newfoundland, I was wondering what company it used to belong to.
  2. 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 the wiki article, which is inaccurate. I found out that these buses' dashboards have Voith shift selectors, apart from the fact some of the Omnitrans XN40s sound differently from the OCTA XN40s. Units 1321-1333 have 6 speed Allison Transmission B400Rs Units 153-154 are built in October 2003; units 158-172 are built in November 2003 Units 101-103, and 105-121 are built in January 2001 Units 175-187 and 198 are built in May 2005; units 193-197 are built in June 2005 Units 1201-1210 are built in June 2009; units 1220-1227 are built in July 2009 Some of the 2011 New Flyer C40LFRs have 6-speed Allison Transmission B400Rs; 1233 is one of these buses with an Allison Transmission The 2001, 2003, 2005 New Flyer C40LFs, and 2009 New Flyer C40LFRs have TwinVision/Digital Recorders Amber LED signs. Note that the TwinVision brand destination sign controllers may either have the Digital Recorders logo or the Twinvision logo on buses made before 2007. Units 171 and 175-198 have 39 American Seating Innovator 850 padded fabric seats Some of the 2003 New Flyer C40LFs have 33 American Seating Innovator 850 padded fabric seats and 3 American Seating Vision padded fabric seats in order to accommodate the Q-Pods wheelchair securement system and one wheelchair securement station. These buses originally had 39 seats. Omnitrans' New Flyer XN40s have 34 American Seating Vision padded fabric seats. Some of these buses' VINs are missing, which can be confirmed if you use AutoCheck.com by using one of the VINs closest to that particular bus and entering the next VIN for that unit. Add Omnitrans route 208, 215, and 290. The rest of the routes that need to be changed are found in the latest Omnitrans bus book for January 2018 by downloading a PDF copy from their website or obtaining a physical copy by riding on Omnitrans buses. Unit 640/1640 was built in November 1992 1997 Neoplan AN440A CNG buses were built from May to August 1997 Omnitrans' 1996 Orion Vs were built from December 1996 to January 1997. These buses had Cummins L10G engines and ZF 4HP590 transmissions instead of the Cummins C8.3G and ZF 4HP592 powertrain as listed in the wiki articles.

  7. Is it true that the MCI MC-5C 35' motorcoach, if specified with an automatic transmission, usually was the Allison MT644 rather than the HT740? Would I think the MT644 was the only automatic transmission available for either the 6V71 or 8V71 engines? Meaning, one manual transmission (Spicer 8844) and one automatic (Allison MT644). Some stories suggest these had the Allison HT740 automatic, but I think those stories are false. Thank you, Ben Edge
  8. What is your opinion on the old Orion I and TMC CityCruiser series buses? In the U.S., these were produced under license by TMC, then a Greyhound subsidiary, in the years 1979 to 1982. In mid-1982, it was decided that the Mississauga, Ontario, Canada-based Orion Bus (then called Ontario Bus Industries) was to open a U.S. plant, in Oriskany, NY. The TMC version of the bus came only in the 30-foot length (the Orion I, then sold mainly in Canada, was also available in a 35-foot length). Both variations until 1982 only came with a Detroit Diesel 6V53 engine backed by an Allison MT643 automatic transmission with locking torque converter. A 6V71 prototype bus was tested in Canada, and it eventually became reality. After Orion I began making its first buses in the U.S., the 6V53 was replaced by the 6V71 (naturally aspirated up to 198 hp, and turbo-aftercooled up to 225 hp) and the more powerful 6V92TA producing 253 hp (the latter was the only California-compliant engine available (when specified as 6V92TAC), until the Cummins L10 showed up in 1986). The transmission changed, too: instead of the MT643, the Orions were given a choice of two Allison automatics (the MT644/7/8 and the HT740/7/8) and four ZFs (4HP500, 4HP590, 5HP500 and 5HP590), to be joined by the Voith DIWA D863.2/D864.2 (most common behind the Cummins L10) and the Renk Doromat 874B in 1986. The most common transmission other than the Allison was the ZF. It was also during 1982 that a 35-foot long bus showed up in the U.S., and was joined by a 40-foot bus in late 1983. A few 30-foot Orion I's were powered by Caterpillar 3208T engines (an engine usually found in school buses) producing 215 hp. ~Ben
