Fairview: 20843-20849 (Fairview has 7 transit artics for some odd reason)

 

I would hope that Fairview's transit artics get replaced with the suburban ones. There;s no point in them running transit artics aside from increasing the spare factor/converting more trips to articulated buses despite not having enough suburban ones built to accomplish that.

They are getting suburban artics.

Saw Saddle Rivers MCI D4500CT 18119 along NJ Turnpike near Exit 2. Wonder why it’s all the way down here 🤔

Ah ok. I’m guessing they’re in the process of being returned to NJ Transit but idk.

Those buses are sitting at cmf in Ironbound. Njt is looking for a contractor. Greyhound would use Saddle River when they couldn’t handle certain lines, at the time of that pic it most likely in service for greyhound

Never knew that. It also said on CPTDB Wiki that 17064 and 17068 are owned by Matador Tours and the rest are unknown. And 18118 and 18119 are back with NJ Transit I assume. 

 

Imo NJ transit can give 17063-1770 to DeCamp Bus Lines or Coach USA

I thought there was talk about Academy possibly taking those 2017 MCIs. 

I heard rumors from the NYC Transit Forums but idk anymore. Currently they're parked at CMF I believe.

NJ Transit website shows auctioning of only two Neoplans (and 2 damaged NABIs), not twenty.

NABIs are 5612 and 5700 along with Neoplan 9524 and 9534.

I hear that NJT wants to start getting rid of those Nabi 4.16 buses. Are they seriously that unreliable to be canning them this early? They are hardly a decade old!

Yes, the nabis haven’t proven to be exactly *quality* buses

The oldest NABI's are 12 years old this year and they get a lot of hard use.

I liked the NABIs but I think on the NYC Transit Forums they mentioned there were problems with the buses especially the south jersey ones

If anything, go to the 154, 156, 158, or 159 and try out one of the fairview NABIs and it'll be obvious. They've (finally) been fixing them up again but earlier this spring they were looking *really* rough... Now Fairview isn't known for it's amazing maintenance, but those NABIs are not so hot...

In general though, all the NABIs now ride rough... Even the Academy ones which are cared for well are a$$ pounders.

20081 and 7271 got into an oopsie in Secaucus. 7271 (On the route 139) rear-ended 20081 (On the route 113). 20081 has some rear damage but 7271 doesn't look so good. 20081 got some panels by the exhaust taken off and the engine cover has been pushed in a bit (And of course minor bumper damage). There's a lot going on with 7271's front so I don't really want to to describe it but it seems to have broken through a guardrail... Hopefully the operator got out of 7271 (and 20081) okay; the driver's area of 7271 doesn't look demolished at least..
