Can't wait to see these Neoplans go...

For 4 years I had to take that horrid 120 to/from blue line to get to work and get home. The bus never came, it was on AVERAGE 1 hour late, and one day it was 3 HOURS LATE. The 120(Before the 121 and 120 became one route) used nothing but Neoplans, and I get flash backs everytime I see these buses, from standing in the cold/rain/summer heat for hours to seeing rats run around as I waited at the Imperial/Wilmington station.

Seems like MTA is consolidating the remaining CNG Neoplans at Div. 3 or Div. 10?

Yup, they are at Div. 3 and 10. And last time I checked there were still a few remaining at Div. 18. Now, I think there are 10 or less Neoplans at 18.

I've noticed that too. The bulk of them must be at div 3 since ALL the 6700 series are there too. I noticed Div 18 is getting many of the newer 8100s from division 6 along with some upper 8400s. I've seen alot of these buses on line 210 lately. Line 210 used to be nothing but neoplans. Also, more 7700s are appearing at division 9 that weren't there before.

From my observations Div. 18 DOES NOT have anymore Neoplans. I saw most of the ones that used to be at 18, at div. 12 in storage. One 6400 unit transfered to Div. 10 as I saw it operating on Line 20 this past weekend.

I did see a neoplan an440 #6554 operating on the 180. It said it was drom Div. 10. I think it moved to Div. 3

I too saw 6554 operating on a divison 3 line (485) this week. So it must have been transferred to div 3.

On Friday evening I saw 6522 on line 4. I don't remember that as being one of the remaining neoplans in service, but maybe so?

I think 6554 has been at Div. 3 for over a year... but Im not completely sure.
