The OCTA and its articles are in a serious need for updates because the fleet info is incomplete particularly because there are shuttle buses used for OCTA ACCESS Service that are not in the fleet. I have lived in Orange County, California for almost my entire life and this is the bus system where I had my first bus rides in 2015! The following details that must be added to the OCTA and its articles are:

OCTA unit 6031 was a 2008 ElDorado National E-Z Rider II BRT originally intended to replace the 1997-1998 E-Z Riders, but it was rejected. This bus supposedly had a Cummins Westport ISL G with an Allison Transmission B300R and Transit Sales International is presumed to have this bus on their website.

OCTA unit 5406 tested an experimental 2-stripe orange and blue 'Millennium Look' paint scheme variant in 2003. This experimental paint scheme is different from 5241 as it has no gray paint skirt on the bottom sides of the bus, and a large 2-tone OCTA logo on the sides and front end of that bus.

OCTA unit 5578 tested an experimental OC Bus blue and orange paint scheme in 2015-2016

OCTA unit 5597 tested an experimental OC Bus blue and white paint scheme in 2015-2016, which became the finalized paint scheme for OC Bus units 5701-5858, 7621-7636, 5506, 5515, 5522, 5539, and some other New Flyer C40LFRs. 

Units 2296, 2311, 2313, 2317, 2324, 2340-2341, 2345, 2349, and 2357 were originally operated by First Transit while units 2297-2299, and the other 2300s were still at First Transit at the time of their retirement.

Metro leased 14 OCTA GMC T8H-203 diesel buses in 1998 due to a shortage of buses in their fleet during the CNG crisis in the mid to late 1990s. Before that, 3004, 3012, and some other units were leased to Metro in 1996 with their OCTA fleet numbers and paint schemes retained, with the Metro logo placed over the OCTA 'highway' logo. These buses were then retired in April to May 2001. The following buses repainted in the 'yellow jacket' Metro Bus paint scheme include:

3019 as LACMTA 9140
3020 as LACMTA 9141
3065 as LACMTA 9142
3075 as LACMTA 9143
3094 as LACMTA 9144

The next set of updates are to be included in the OCTA CPTDB Wiki articles:

Changes included in my reply above for December 23rd, 2017

OCTA unit 5701 now has 35 seats instead of 37. This bus had its original seating layout changed to match the other 5700s-5800s while it transferred from Santa Ana (base 1) to Garden Grove (base 4).

The links shown below might have changes necessary for other transit systems such as LACMTA, LBT, Omnitrans, RTA, and many others:

http://www.rapidtransit-press.com/art.html: OCTA ACCESS units 8401-8456 were 2001 ElDorado National Aerotech diesel cutaway buses built on Ford F-450 chassis. 10 of these units went to Anaheim Resort Transportation.

http://www.rapidtransit-press.com/transitsystems.html: Units 3058, 3102, 3134, 3138, 3167, and some other OCTA units went to Transit Systems Unlimited

http://www.oocities.org/~buslist/OCTA.html: All information included in that link must be added to the CPTDB Wiki articles related to the OCTA.

OCTD/OCTA GMC T8H-203 serials for units 3001-3176 are assumed to be: A1196-A1371

OCTD/OCTA 4200s VINs are: K1082796-K1082858 and L1082859-L1082864

OCTA 7600s SuperBus trailers were manufactured by Magna Bus

OCTA units 5401, 5301-5321 are built in 1997

OCTA units 5322-5353 are built in December 1997

OCTA units 5387-5397 and 5402-5418 are built in January 1998

New Flyer H40LF units 5419-5420 were built in January 1998

New Flyer GE40LF units 5421-5422 are built in May 2005. Both units originally had Luminator Horizon LED signs and 38 American Seating 6468 seats when they were in the OCTA. Right now, OCTA units 5421-5422 are currently at Long Beach Transit as fleet numbers 2521-2522, with 30 American Seating 6468s retained but the first set of seats were replaced with 7 American Seating InSight seats as seen in this picture below, which is hard to see since there are seats behind the front section that are obstructing them.

Some information I found, hope this is useful

OCTA unit 5415 is owned by a private owner (by the same guy who bought OCTA unit 2304)

OCTA unit 7415 was bought by Las Vegas Beyond and converted to a party bus.

OCTA unit 7571 was involved in an accident in 2009

 

 

Sources, as well as some extra stuff: 

https://lasvegasbeyond.com/vehicles/

<---Video tour of ex OCTA 7415, now part of a party bus fleet.

<--- A 5 month old video of ex OCTA Unit 7406 at the Stardust Tours yard. The bus seems to be missing some parts.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bbs--P9leEO/?taken-by=people_onthebus <--- (Warning: Language) Ex OCTA 7302 displaying some "interesting" messages on its destination sign. I saw a comment in which said that the bus is no longer owned by Stardust tours *maybe phased out for 7406?*. I cannot verify this fact

The OCTA bus list in one of the links didn't show 3176, but the CPTDB Wiki article listed 3176 just before the content changes.

And the following set of changes need to be added onto the articles for the wiki:

It seems as OCTA has retired units 2218 and 2287 since I found them at General Auction Company's Website

Checking the website, GAC has OCTA NABI Units 2218, 2246, 2287, and 2318.

I also noticed that 2246 was retired almost 2 years ago (due to an accident) yet is being auctioned off at the upcoming February 10th auction

There are no pictures yet though the VIN's can be found in the description of the lots

2318: https://generalauction.hibid.com/lot/37737328/2001-nabi-neoplan/?cat=626&ipp=100&ref=catalog

2218: https://generalauction.hibid.com/lot/37737331/2001-nabi-neoplan/?cat=626&ipp=100&ref=catalog

2287: https://generalauction.hibid.com/lot/37737333/2001-nabi-neoplan/?cat=626&ipp=100&ref=catalog

2246: https://generalauction.hibid.com/lot/37737332/-dealer-only--2001-nabi-neoplan/?cat=201&ipp=100&ref=catalog

 

EDIT (2/1/18)

Photos of all the NABI's have been released and an empty lot was updated to be Unit 2278. This makes a total of 5 NABI buses being auctioned off on February 10th.

2278: https://generalauction.hibid.com/lot/37737327/2001-nabi-neoplan/?cat=626&ipp=100&ref=catalog

 

EDIT (2/11/18)

All 5 NABI units have been auctioned off at yesterday's auction

New Flyer posted a tweet which includes a news report of OCTA ordering 6 more Xcelsior units. Apparently, these units are going to be used to expand the Bravo! Bus fleet and were options. 

If fleet numbering continues from 5858, then these units will be 5859-5864 and possibly be assigned to Garden Grove(?). The reason I say this is because of the possible unassigned parking spaces in the yard which were formally assigned to the NABI's, though these are definitely to be with Santa Ana with the rest of the 58XX and Bravo! units.

The next set of changes that are to be put into OCTA wiki articles are:

OCTA routes 212, 216, and 454 are discontinued

OC Bus unit 1101 has 37 American Seating 6466 seats

OC Bus Mobile Validators are found on all currently operating buses except the 2200s and 2300s

OCTA route 177 has no Sunday service

Units 2311, 2313, 2317, 2327, 2340-2341, 2349, and 2357 are retired

Units 5126, 7529-7530, 7576, 7585, and 7592 have Near Zero ISL-G engines. These buses with repowered engines have additional cooling vents on the rear that are intended to be used as an after-treatment system for the new engine as shown in the picture below.

I have found 2 videos showing Ex-OCTA 2001 D60LF's operating for Santa Cruz Metro. According to the description, A total of 3 2001 D60LF's (Formally OCTA) are being leased for Santa Cruz for a 6 month pilot program up to June. Its possible that these were being leased from Transit Sales International due to the buses being in a plain white livery, however, I could be wrong. The following units are with Santa Cruz as of right now and have the fleet numbers 2101-2103.

  • OCTA unit 7420 is now Santa Cruz Metro unit 2101
  • OCTA unit 74?? is now Santa Cruz Mero unit 2102
  • OCTA unit 7417 is now Santa Cruz Metro unit 2103

Bumping this thread with some updates

  • Units 2340-2341, 2345, and 2357 have been auctioned off today. These are (I believe) the last 2300's to be auctioned off.
  • Units 7589-7592 are (temporarily?) not being used by the Bravo! Service. I have found 7589 on a deadhead to the 60 a few days ago, 7591 on Route 1, and 7592 on the 60 (7592 is currently a norm on the 60 on weekdays and has not yet been spotted on other routes). 7589-7592 are all in full body ad wraps.

So yesterday morning when I rode the bus, I saw this below my feet. They've "extended" the yellow line and no ones allowed to stand on it (I was a rebel and stood there anyway). This photo was taken onboard 7587, a 2008 C40LFR. I haven't seen this new feature on the other C40LFR's, XN40's or XN60's though it is likely that they'll receive this update in the near future. 7587 is likely the first unit to receive this and as mentioned before, could be on the rest of the active OCTA Fleet *Excluding the NABI's* (7587 has also since then been repowered to a Cummins Westport ISL-G NZ)

Here are some updates regarding OCTA/OCBus.

  • 6338 was stolen by a 20 year old on May 17th 2018 (4 days ago when I typed this) (Source: Multiple News reports, driver friend)
  • Recently retired NABI Buses who's fates are unknown: 2214, 2222, 2232, 2248, 2296, 2324, 2349. <----These could be auctioned off by General Auction Company on its next auction on June 9th 2018

  • 5321, 5328, 5390, 5323 & 5368 to Bronco Transit sometime in 2009-2010 (Source: CPTDB Wiki)
  • 2275 was involved in an accident, however, instead of repairing it, OCTA used the bus for spares and it was auctioned off in 2008, along with 2206 and 2133, the other NABI's known to have been retired early due to accidents/incidents. (Source: Flickr Photo)

I just put up some of the VINs of OCTA's 2007 New Flyer C40LFRs, among them being in the 5502-5599, 5601-5674, and 7501-7528 series. The wiki page for these units still have not been created yet and there are many other VINs that are awaiting to be put up on the wiki.

Yesterday I just saw 5866 operating on Bravo 560 and those units do not have a wiki page created yet also. The license plates for these 2018 New Flyer XN40 units are:

1535793

1535842

Another Bump for the OCTA wiki page. These are in regards to the remaining OCTA NABI's and their auction dates. I have also put in auction dates for other buses, such as some of the D60LFs as well as some error corrections.

  • Units 2209, 2222, 2232-2233, 2237, 2243, 2254, and 2324 were auctioned off at General Auction Company on August 11, 2018. (One unit *2243* was defaulted and as a result, was not auctioned off on this date and as a result, it was put up for auction again for the September 8th 2018 auction)
  • Unit 2243, 2248, 2255, 2263, 2270, 2280-2281, 2288, 2296, and 2349 were auctioned off at General Auction Company on September 8, 2018. (One unit, *2243* was defaulted from the previous auction and was auctioned off again on this date).
  • Units 7409, 7411, 7413, 7416, 7417, 7418, 7419, and 7420 were auctioned at General Auction Company on April 8, 2017. (7411 and 7417 were put up for auction on March 11, 2017, however, they most likely were defaulted and were re-auctioned at the April 8th auction).
  • 2287 was not auctioned off on March 10, 2018. It was auctioned off at the previous auction on February 10, 2018. 
  • 2313 was auctioned off at the March 10, 2018 auction, but not listed on the wiki page. 
  • 2218, 2246, 2278, 2287, and 2318 were auctioned off on February 10, 2018. 
  • 2246 was involved in an accident on March 27, 2016 after slamming into a building. It was auctioned off, un-repaired,  2 years later on February 10, 2018.

More information to be posted soon!

Some updates for the OCTA wiki page

  • All buses are currently receiving new bike racks which can hold 3 bikes instead of 2. The newer XN40's (5861-5866), were delivered with these newer bike racks 
  • As of right now, the 58xx series buses have a rear door announcement that is given each time the door is opened or closed. This video taken from 5840 shows this at work. *Note that the voice is similar to the voice announcer present on LACMTA buses* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XkLgtP9mbQ
  • There still needs to be a page (or pages), for the 2007 C40LFRs (5502-5599, 5601-5674, 7501-7528). I assume the thread author has the VIN's of most of these buses.
  • All repowers for the C40LFR's are estimated to be completed as of December 2018.
  • 7575-7576 are no longer used for the Bravo! service, as they now have full body ad-wraps and are now found on other fixed routes. I am not sure if 7577-7579 are getting the same treatment since none of the buses have been tracked.
  • A sighting made on November 8th 2018 shows only two NABI's still remain at the Garden Grove bus yard. These buses are 2214 and 2228.

A short update for the OCTA wiki-page

  • There will be a new route, the Bravo! 529. It will leave from the Goldenwest Transportation Center and go up to the Buena Park Station. This route will run on weekdays only, and is most likely going to replace the 29A. It is expected that this route commences with the next service change which will take place on February 9 2019.
  • 7577 is no longer used for the Bravo! service.

Units 7589-7592 are (temporarily?) not being used by the Bravo! Service. I have found 7589 on a deadhead to the 60 a few days ago, 7591 on Route 1, and 7592 on the 60 (7592 is currently a norm on the 60 on weekdays and has not yet been spotted on other routes). 7589-7592 are all in full body ad wraps.

7575-7576 are no longer used for the Bravo! service, as they now have full body ad-wraps and are now found on other fixed routes. I am not sure if 7577-7579 are getting the same treatment since none of the buses have been tracked.

Unis 7589-7592 and 7575-7577 have returned to use as buses for the Bravo! service as a result of the demand for buses for Bravo buses getting higher.
This morning I saw 7589 with its wrap removed and with its Bravo livery still present

Units 7301-730273057306-73087311-73127317, and 7319 were all auctioned off on March 15th 2014.

Unit 5865 was built in June 2018.

Unit 5863 was built in April 2018.

Unit 7631 was involved in a minor accident on January 24th 2019

Some of the 2007 C40LFR's have 3 slot bike racks. Units I personally spotted with them include 5517-5518, 5548, and 5527. There may be more C40LFR's with the new rack
