COTA Central Ohio Transit Authority - Update?

Recommended Posts

@Articulated, yes, i didn't know that CATA was going to put 2402 on the road as 632, as for 2401, i'm not completely sure, last i was told by a driver friend was that CATA was going to use all 8 since they already have spare parts coming from New Flyer, and 634 is a renumbered XDE40LF bus.

Update about 2401 & 2402 sent to CATA: 2401 is confirmed as the parts bus based on OMSIMattHowell's Youtube video but apparantly it was originally going to be 634 before something happened.

2402 is confirmed to be 632 

 

also 2401 - 2403 had an old school Stop request light in the front. the 2100s, 2300s, 2500s, 2404 and 2405 didnt have those. the last buses to have those were either the 1993 flxibles or the 1995 flxibles (i'm not too sure)

Update for the Ford transit vans:
been meaning to pass this on but the fleet numbers for the ford transit vans are 1861-1878 i haven't seen an 1879 yet and definitely have not seen any higher than that.

A hand full of the 2800s are still in service. One was chasing 1904 on friday. Havn't seen the baby 2800 gilligs though. 1924 still had some new bus smell when i rode it Friday.
