The Pace roster does need many updates. These are the only 2002 NABI 40-LFW buses still in service: 6210, 6224, and 6227 only. 2003 NABI 40-LFW buses active: 6235, 6237, 6246, 6251, 6255, 6257, 6258. 2005 NABI 40-LFW 6295 may be retired. All NABI 35-LFW buses are retired. The 2017 Eldorado National Axess BRT fleet ends at 6786, not 6785. These are the locations of the 2017 models that are not filled out: 6734 and 6735 West, 6736 to 6781 North, 6782 to 6785 West, and 6786 North Shore (most likely). The 2020 New Flyer XD40's are now ending at 20485, so it is most likely that the first 75 will be at West and the other 10 will be somewhere else.

There is a new fleet of Eldorado National Axess BRT CNG buses numbered 20500-20505. 20476-20485 are also assigned to West Division like the other 75. On the main Pace page, it lists that the NABIs are on the active fleet section, but clicking on the page, it notes all the buses are retired. So for that, move the final NABIs from 6262-6322 under the retired list. Also I have a picture of 6338 in the 6323-6376 fleet that I took last month too.

  • Added a new row for 20500-20505 on the main Pace fleet roster.
  • Added a division column to the 20400-20412, 20414-20485 page; all part of West Division.
  • Moved 6262-6322 down to the "Retired" section of the main Pace fleet roster.

Thanks for the info!

The 20300 series appears to be 30-footer Eldorado National Axess BRT buses and they have Cummins L9 on them. 20300 20303 20305 20315 20316 are currently active and 20301 20302 20304 20306-20312 20314 20317+ are awaiting to enter service. They are run by diesel.

Do you know how many units in total are arriving?
