All remaining 1994 TMC RTS Buses are going to be retired/auctioned off this summer. I also found out that they were refurbished at MTB in Milton, ON! These buses actually came to Canada! lol

MTB IIRC also rebuild some V's for them. MTB has done work on systems from the USA fleets before.

VDOT to launch ‘bus-on-shoulder’ program on Interstate 66 by mid-November

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/trafficandcommuting/vdot-to-launch-bus-on-shoulder-program-on-interstate-66-by-mid-november/2014/10/03/a83da53c-4990-11e4-a046-120a8a855cca_story.html

Nick Perfili, section chief for the Fairfax Connector, projects a potential time savings for several of the county’s bus routes, including a route that travels to the Pentagon via the Dulles Connector Road and I-66. Other buses that take I-66 from the county bus garage to their first stop should potentially improve their ontime arrivals.

“I think the whole world is stuck in traffic in this area,” Perfili said. “We will benefit in the morning, in the afternoon and evening commutes. We are going to see improvements in the reliability of travel time in the corridor.”

Metrobus, Loudoun County Transit, and the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission also use I-66 and would benefit from the pilot too.
