Everyone in Miami-Dade with common sense hates the Better Bus

And corrupt Transit Alliance Miami Non-profit Organization as well by dumb politicans.

According to 7 News Miami, the county was having  bus driver shortage issues again and they were hiring 1000+ drivers few weeks ago due to some mishaps. Hope someone needs to contact FTA  or APTA immediately. FTA or APTA needs to investigate these issues when they have free time. 

Anyway back to this topic

 

What happened to the metromover extension to Miami Beach? 

And another thing what I heard some good news by foamers on YT, the XE60s will be delivered this Summer-Winter 2024 coming  (if my opinion before the South Dade Brt Completion fall 2024 date among with the new 4th bus EV Division) when the Gen 1 (2005-06) & 2 Nabis (2010) Hit their 2nd try of retirement what was postponed from 3 months ago due to dumb politicans messing up the introduction of the Better Bus Plan, many routes were discontinued, letter/number changed and extended to new places. The bus routes was reduced from 100+ to 70.

6 Rejected MDT units were diverted to Raleigh-Durham International Airport as of this week for a good bargain price while Proterra was in the process of ceasing operations. They are Expected to enter service in 3 to 6 months in North Carolina. Unsure if RDAA getting their new Livery added from their body work shop in NC.

Unit 9410 (Series 50) Flxible was listed for sale in Miami by private owner 2 days ago. This one cost $9,500 dollars. Private RV Conversion. Paint color is blue. 

In other news, Pilot bus XE60 Unit E23501 was delivered late in Miami sometime last week or 2 weeks ago after the October 2023 postponement  delivery date. Unsure if the unit will be shown at the Government Center in Downtown Miami at the unveiling event sometime this year.

And unit 12301 29 Ft Gillig is retired. Only units 12302 and 12303 are still in service operating for Cutler Bay routes.

23501 is now tracking

That's correct and parked at Central Division bus Yard temporarily for the moment during the construction of the 4th bus EV Division in South Dade.

Don't forget to call Local 10 News in Miami when you have free time and tell the news station that the EV Artic delivery date is incorrect (Oct 2023).

Edited by Glennwood Road Ent.
The Pilot NFI XE60 was delivered late in February 2024. Original delivery date was 10/2023.
