University of Colorado Buff Bus

Recommended Posts

University of Colorado Buff Bus is the campus shuttle for the University of Colorado Boulder campus.  It has a really mixed bag of buses operating.  While I was unable to pictured the New Flyer D60LF spotted back in March 2018, here attached are all the buses I have pictured during my Boulder visit:

Bus 645VKH is a Gillig Phantom 40ft. of an unknown vintage.

Bus 711FHT is a 2006 Novabus LFS, while 761REL is a 2007 sister bus.  According to the CPTDB Wiki page for the service, they are buses number 11 and 61 respectively.  Finally, bus 527UHD is a Novabus LFS Artic.

Great photos of rarely seen buses, thanks! The "fleet numbers" are made up of digits from the license plates. The Artic would be fleet number 27, but I'm not sure how official these are. I don't think the buses are marked in any way.

Yep, the buses indeed don't carry any fleet numbers!

Just for the record, Buff also have a pair of older 2008 LFS Artics (90 and 91), which are the first "production" 3rd generation LFS of any kind.

I contacted the university after taking some photos there earlier in the year to confirm fleet numbers, and after being passed around a few times the email chain eventually died. Numbers appeared on the tracker that they had at the time but I neglected to write any of them down.

Did you manage to get any pictures of "90" or "91" (the older LFS Artics?).
