@Thomasw

2300s and 2425-2427 have been gone for quite some time. Only 2004s left are 2402, 2406, 2408-2409, 2412, & 2417. Rest of them were auctioned off.  Also, 2502 was wrecked and auctioned off as well.

No worries! Only other thing I can see is that #1217-1218 are now in service. They are the Ex-SCAT Suburban BRT Gilligs that were purchased sometime in January/February. I don't think those are on the wiki yet. You can see a picture of 1218 (Ex-1202X) on HARTs facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HillsboroughTransit/photos/a.451133603016/10156077097228017/?type=3&theater

On November 13, 2018, #’s 1201X (now 1217) & 1202X (now 1218) were formally transferred to HART. Re-branding of the buses into the HART livery began shortly thereafter, followed by general preparation (installing the HART fareboxes, radios, etc.). 1218’s first day in revenue service with HART was March 5, 2019, with 1217 following suit on March 26, 2019. During the course of May 1 through 3, 2019 – after being delayed due to paperwork issues on SCAT’s end – #’s 1101X through 1106X (to be re-branded as simply 1101 through 1106) were transferred & are currently undergoing re-branding. I predict that these buses will be on the road by the beginning of September, though they could enter revenue service as early as mid August. All of the buses will primarily be assigned to Routes 60LX & 275LX – which serve Tampa International Airport. However, runs on Route 20X have happened & runs on the 360LX are not entirely out of the question either.

Acquired Sarasota County Area Transit - Former #'s 1101X-1106X. Delivery was delayed for several months due to paperwork issues. . All buses have been delivered as of 5/22/19 and will enter service sometime by August, 2019.
