Retirement has started most will be gone by next month since the mayor has contracted some routes out to a Private Contractor called LSF Limousines of South Florida and they will be using Cutaways to operate on some of these routes but here is the kicker maintenance work including fuel and supervisory work will be managed by MDT since the Mayor and the union and the MDT Director has it out for the Transit Workers Union

That was supposed to be 30 buses built for Broward County not 15

? This was supposed to complete the remaining diesel buses Broward County ordered back in 2015 they didn’t get them so Miami scooped the remaining amount which was 15 buses that was sitting on the Anniston lot for about 1or 2yrs if not Mistaken

So Miami is getting more Gilligs for sure, that's going to be interesting. Will these Gilligs be CNG or Diesel?

Miami-Dade Transit Newest XN40

The 9200s was a test bed for alternate fuels. Buses  9201-9215 went to Central and then Northeast and were powered with CNG engines. Bus 9206-9210 went to NE and had the Cummins M11 diesel with particle traps on the exhaust. Bus 9211-9215 had the Detroit Diesel 6V92 running on methanol fuel. The methanol buses were the first to fail. Serious mechanical issues developed and the buses were parked in 1993. Some five years later, they were re-powered to diesel and returned to service. The CNG buses were extremely slow and had trouble climbing normal grades such as bridges and expressway ramps. They were put on the shortest of trippers for a few years and eventually parked and repowered with Cummins M11 diesels. The particle trap buses remained in service throughout their service spans, but the traps were modified and eventually removed. They all came with the ZF transmission and Sutrak roof mounted AC units. They were retired in 2004/2005.
