The OCTA and its articles are in a serious need for updates because the fleet info is incomplete particularly because there are shuttle buses used for OCTA ACCESS Service that are not in the fleet. I have lived in Orange County, California for almost my entire life and this is the bus system where I had my first bus rides in 2015! The following details that must be added to the OCTA and its articles are: The OCTA was established in 1991 from the Orange County Transit District OCTA units 8501-8599 are 2014-2015 Glaval Buses built on a Ford F-450 Chassis OCTA units 8601-8700 series are 201
The 2006-2007 New Flyer C40LFRs from the OCTA, fleet numbers 5501-5674 and 7501-7529, are missing from the wiki, since no one had created a page yet for the C Gas Plus LFRs that were built in September 2006-January 2008. I have provided some VINs for these vehicles: 5510, built May 2007: 5FYC5FP157C031320 7529, the very first Cummins Westport ISL-G powered LFR, built May 2007: 5FYC5FB167C031723 5667, built December 2007: 5FYC5FP167C032265 All OCTA C Gas Plus powered LFRs have been repowered with Cummins Westport ISL-G engines in 2013-2016, and they are currently being repainted in two
The 2001 New Flyer D60LFs from the OCTA were never repowered from and delivered with Detroit Diesel Series 50s according to Facebook at Orange County Transit Fans. These buses had Cummins ISL upon delivery in late 2001 to early 2002, making them the very first New Flyer D60LFs to come with that engine. Also, the diesel ISL engine was offered early in 2001, as a result of the problems the 7200s and 7300s had with their underpowered Detroit Diesel Series 50s, at which they were repowered in 2004-2005. Units 7401-7412 were built in October 2001, while units 7413-7420 were built in November 2001.
