GRT Retirements

I wish, and they should also get rid of the 9400's too ! But I guess we'll just have to wait until next year !

Why would they get rid of the 92's and 94's when they still have active high floors in service? Unless of course they suffer the same fate 9420 did. As for next year, maybe a couple will be but I wouldn't expect them all to be retired.

All the 9400's have been refurbished recently, some last year, but I doubt they'll be retired next year, they spent money to refurbish them, but they couldn't afford black paint... :P

Can anyone confirm 8909, 9004, 9005 and 9007's status? I don't think any of these units have been reported sighted.

So far the confirmed active high floors are the following:

520

521

522

523-525

526-529

8801,8804

8901,8905

8908

8911

8914

9003

9006

9010-9013.

That would be 23 high floors in service excluding the 4 in question.

#522 is active

Thank you. I have started an up-to-date list of active buses on post #11 in this thread. When I find out the status of the 4 in question I'll make any necessary revisions.
