I was told by my sources at the LRTA that they skip a year of numbering there buses

 There not 35’ Gillig BRT models there 37’ buses and here’s why there 37’ the head mechanic at the LRTA told another operator that when the bike rack is down that adds a foot and half to your length he said 

There 15 new brt gilligs will have the
