XE40s huh? Why not, cause NICE bus is buying these too. And probably MTA and Bee Lines too.

Are there no older 45' MCI buses under Coach USA or Academy anymore?

8951/8952 are the oldest I have seen that are Academy Bus operated NJ Transit owned. They are 2011s and the last of the Academy fleet to wear the older colors.

Two NJ Transit MCIs were involved in a nasty collision this morning. 18023 on the 554 rear-ended a disabled 18032 along the White Horse Pike injuring the driver and one passenger.

Anyone know why the last batch of D4500s that went to Academy (212xx) were not solid grey? They are white with the chrome panels and look as if they were originally supposed to go to someone else.

This is what is on the Wiki:

Academy Bus was originally slated to receive buses 21277-21334, and in fact had some units delivered in silversides with white paint (including the rear upper panel), but at some point NJT cut Academy's allocation and claimed the remaining buses for themselves. Due to the difference in the changeover point from Academy to NJT between the Winnipeg and Pembina assembly plants, Academy has 21277-21300 and 21303-21306. New Jersey Transit has 21301-21302 and 21307-21334. The first of the NJT buses from this part of the order began running in revenue out of Oradell Garage on October 15, 2021. Academy is scheduled to get some of the 2022 cruiser allocation to make up for the difference.

I'm still unsure why NJT ended up getting the 21300s though. I think it was because the additional 33 buses were added to the contract and those 33 are suppose to go to NJT but not sure? Also created that weird cutoff point where 21301-21302 are NJT, 21303-21306 are Academy, and 21307 and up are NJT.

Yeah, they tacked them unto the 2021 range.

A fire broke out at the retired NJT bus lot in North Bergan, destroying at least six buses. All buses have been retired from revenue service. No injuries. Seems the buses involved are the 2003 MCI D400Ns (7802-7805) as 7802 and 7804 were seen in pictures, and the 2002 Nova Bus RTS-06 HEVs (4001-4003).

Did someone leave the engine running on or did someone break open the NJT yard and vandalized the bus parts before it catches a fire? Hope NJT will carry the old buses to the scrap yard and soon replace them with newer ones.

I don't even know how the buses caught fire. But I do believe those older buses could still run, but idk what someone could be doing there.

Could be arsonists. That fire seems suspicious afterall. Funny how that same day, 2 people were found dead on the 3 train tracks in Brooklyn not far from New Lots....

New Jersey Transit will be taking over Routes 10, 22, 23, and 119 from Coach USA. Route 10 will be at Greenville, 119 will be at Meadowlands, and I’m not sure who’s doing the 22/23 yet likely Meadowlands too. In response, the 126 will be moved to Meadowlands from Greenville full time and Route 84 will be moved to Coach USA. I’m not sure if 86 and 89 are also moving per the rumors I heard from the NYC Forums.

Couple NABI and Route shifts going on at the moment:

  • Route 22, 23, and 119 are out of Meadowlands, Route 10 is out of Greenville. However Routes 22 and 119 has a few Greenville trips and Route 10 has a few Meadowlands trips.
  • Route 84 is ONE Bus now
  • NABIs 6046-6056 are going to Meadowlands
  • NABI 6205 is now with Salem County Transit
  • Hearing rumors some NABIs in the 6189-6196 range will either be going to Orange or Hilton.
  • 6197-6204 will be split between Washington Township and Egg Harbor I'm hearing.
  • Not sure where 6040-6045 are yet though those are likely heading to Meadowlands.
