  19. Bangor Maine 2011 Gillig Bus 1046 will soon be added to the Community Connector fleetbut it wont be its first time carrying passengers. In fact this bus is five years old, newly refurbished through a so-called midlife overhaul by the Maine Military Authority in Limestone. They bring them up and we tear them down, and we build them back up, said Bob Jandreau, general manager at MMA. From seats to seat belts, new lights to a new radiator-this bus has been rehabbed top to bottom. This is a way to protect the resource that we have already invested in, and to make it last longer, and to make it safer, said Susan Moreau of the Maine Department of Transportation. Funded by the DOT, its a new partnership many are calling a win-winespecially for local workers. What we really see here is an exciting collaborative, we keep jobs here in the state of Maine, said Bangor City Council Chair Sean Faircloth. And its really keeping a workforce of about 70 people really learning new skills every day, said MMA executive director Tim Corbett. Were told a midlife overhaul like this one costs about 25 percent of what a new bus would cost, and its expected to extend the life of this bus by five to seven years. A new bus is about $400,000, and a midlife overhaul can be just about $100,000, said Bangor bus superintendent Laurie Linscott. Another advantage-cleaner air for riders and non-riders alike. You look at some of the older buses and all you see is black smoke pouring out of it. If you look at this bus, its going to be nice and clean coming out of there, said Jandreau. And as the bus system continues to growpushing a million riders a yearsuperintendent Laurie Linscott is planning more overhauls like this one in the future. Im looking to do one this spring, and then my plan is on my capital plan to do one every year, said Linscott. Photo credit Bangor Community connector [ attachment=55950:image.jpeg]
