They want $15,000 each for those pieces of crap? They're lemons!

Looks like the photos were taken in 2007, so 12 years ago they might have been worth that much.

Hopefully. I saw the owner of Milton Transit 9901 wanted $31,000 and a member on this board was negotiating the price with him. Talks concluded and I believe a company in Newfoundland purchased the bus.

Yeah, an airport in Goose Bay. 

As for the buses in NYC, I highly doubt that the buses are still for sale, as the MTA wouldn't keep those buses for *cough* 12 years *cough*.

Are you sure it's the MTA selling them?

No, there not. Someone else is, but one can see some other MTA RTS's in the photo. I'm assuming that is the dead area of a garage.

Or the seller of these buses owns more than those VI's. Wouldn't be surprised.

It was used for ETS's Disabled Adult Transit Service (DATS). They only had 7 of that particular model so that is a relatively rare cutaway.

Orchard probably bought it to shuttle their seasonal picking crews around. They’re expensive to maintain compared to more utilitarian school buses, which can fit more men to boot. I reckon he found that out the hard way.

What I believe is a blueberry farm in Richmond, BC has an old MCI coach they use to shuttle a large number of workers.

Thanks. That model is actually pretty rare in Canada but quite common stateside.
