What about the hybrid buses in the mid 90s?

Who is Mel Bernero 

Lynx had no hybrid buses in the 90s. They had CNG buses, but that was it. Click on those photos I posted and you'll find out.

No it doesn't. Keep in mind that Mr. Bernero isn't the only person that goes to these bus events.

The 2019 New Flyer XN60s were arrived from the factory last month. Some of the buses were in revenue service now. They featured the different rear end from 2016 models. Cummins Westport L9N and ZF Ecolife 6AP1700B. They were numbered in the 200 series with - 619 in the smaller case number.

LYNX has been awarded with a $1.9 Million grant for Low/No-Emission vehicles. They will use the money for 7 Proterra buses, and charging station and will be used on the Downtown LYMMO services. Most likely, this means some of the current LYMMO fleet will be transitioned to regular service, while some will be retained for LYMMO and LYMMO spares.

In regards to the new XN60 buses, I noted on the bus tracker on Friday buses up to 276-619 in service. So there are at least 16 of these XN60s in total numbered, 261-619 through 276-619.

Is this including the diesel Articulated bus order for Orlando Lynx

I wanted to clarify some info on the numbers for the newest buses in Lynxs fleet:

  • The newest XN60s are 261-619 to 275-619 and these are already in service.
  • 276-218 to 278-218 are Ford E450/(Starcraft?) Cutaway buses that are used on the Kissimmee Connector Routes. They can be found on the Lynx bus tracker.
  • 289-419 is a 2019 Gillig LowFloor BRTPlus CNG 40ft and is already in service. It can also be found on the Lynx bus tracker.
  • More 40ft Gilligs are expected to be coming. Likely will be numbered 290 and up.
  • In late 2018, ten more XN60s were added to the already existing 2019 order. These should be numbered 279-619 to 288-619.

I don't really care much for whatever new bus is rolling around or coming. However the Proterras are coming sometime in the Spring. With that said, here is the original 210 on May 6, 1995 taken by AJ Reinschmidt.

Sadly, no. Would have been cool to see pictures of RTS' in different colors.
