  1. Hey everyone, to keep up with the retirements of the LACMTA NABI Metro 45Cs and 60-BRTs, I provided a separate thread so we know which ones are retired at the moment, and which ones are still active presently. The replacements for the 45Cs are unknown yet, but presumably BYDs as the Silver Line Compobuses are starting to be repainted into the iconic orange Metro Local livery while the buses from BYD are currently on delivery to Metro. The 60-BRTs might also be replaced by BYDs, but the ones that are used on the Orange Line replacement are the XE60s. Retired NABI Compobuses (2008-2013, 8100-8649) 8100-8216, 8218-8338, 8340-8341, 8344, 8348, 8363, 8400, 8402, 8409, 8517 Retired NABI 60-BRTs (2007-2008, 9500s) I don’t think any are retired at the moments but I will update it accordingly Metro recently repainted some of it’s Silver Line Metro 45Cs which including 8352, 8358 and some others. I believe they are based out of Division 13 now Sadly I don’t have auction dates for these buses, but will update accordingly if sources are found Majority of the retired NABI Compobuses are scrapped 8517 was involved in a recent crash when a hijacker took control of the bus. The suspect boarded the bus and the victim (bus driver) was held at gunpoint. The suspect forced the bus driver to drive to multiple locations. The hijacker then ran multiple lights before crashing into the side of the Ritz-Carlson Hotel. The suspect was later arrested, having kept the gun onboard the bus

  4. Hello, as many of you know, the LACMTA has a giant collection of NABI 45C's and about 20 40C LFW's, which are made of composite material. However, NABI wasn't LACMTA's first compobus option, it was Northrop Grumman. I posted this on the Los Angeles MTA thread already, but I think posting this here was a good idea too. Only a small batch was made but Imagine if this was everywhere today... http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Northrop_Grumman_Advanced_Technology_Transit_Bus On the left, you'll see the difference http://www.chaffeeyiu.com/photo/mta/gateway2.jpg Close up http://www.chaffeeyiu.com/photo/mta/mta-9801.jpg Passenger side http://www.bmpcoe.org/bestpractices/internal/north/grf_north_14.html Collision Testing http://www.bmpcoe.org/bestpractices/internal/north/grf_north_15.html Engine: Detroit Diesel series 30
