Nova and New Flyer are competing for the new 60' contract and the 40' contract is closed, so expect a winner to be announced eventually. Last artic contract was sole source but perhaps Nova could use this contract to allow MTS to be a launch customer. Some say that Gillig's QC has gone down as the 200's do not have the same quality as the 800 and 900 buses (same for their contracted equivalents).

Plenty of U2's are still at the LRV facility and by the blue line tracks, but those are going soon. Not sure if Karl Strauss is getting it as they seem to have not building their new facility in Santee where they were going to use one as a centerpiece. I guess they wanted a U2 for their Red Trolley Ale.

Expect an announcement to be made next week. Also, MTS plans to approve the final Transit Optimization Plan changes.

That announcement is going to be 20 LPG paratransit buses to replace existing gasoline models, 250 Gillig buses (Options for 100), and 30 New Flyer XN60 buses (options for 20).
