Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit (TCAT) discussion

Recommended Posts

1902 entered service on the 20 today, unless it pulled in before 8:30 am today in which case i’m clueless as to where it debuted service. Tbis make 4 Flyers in service (1901-1902, 1905-1906)

2501, 212, 613-614, 701 are all retired for good. 702, the only operating hybrid right now, will follow in suit shortly. Though currently OOS, 1102 will be repaired and put back into service, to be TCAT’s only hybrid. Also the final scheme for the Proterras came in today and the design looks a m a z i n g. I don’t know whether I’m allowed to discuss it here, so all i’ll say is that it’s a special design based off of the existing TCAT color palatte.

1908 entered service on the 82 today

According to the wiki, 703 hybrid system was bad and they elected not to fix it and 1103 was in an accident so it is oos as they are harvesting parts off of it.

To add on to the little blurbs i put on the wiki, it looks like 1103 has been towed off property but I didn’t elect to walk thru the boneyard this time so i can’t be sure. That said, counting the hybrid humps i saw from the street, 1103’s appeared to be missing

701-702 are here to stay as contingency buses.

1402-1403 likely have made their last runs (been a while since they last ran...). They have not been retired yet but they have been parked for weeks and I was informed that they likely they won’t return to the streets.

the champions will probably take their place

I feel it is worth mentioning that 1402 and 1403 are still *active*. 1403 hasn't ran in quite some time but 1402 has ran in 2020, it's just that they repair it and it breaks down within a week, so then it gets parked for a few more weeks before they repair it again, then it runs for a week then breaks down, and so on and so forth...
