You would be lucky to break even as not to many scrap yards scrap CNG buses due to not wanting to handle the tanks. Also the cost of towing to the scrap yard.

I can't be certain but i think I saw Bubba (0677) on death row.  Can anyone confirm if they FINALLY retired that bus?

Sorry, disregard.  I saw 0677 in the maintenance bay today.

We will know when it is retired when it appears online for auction.

Not sure if Bubba is charter-worthy... I am hesitant whether operator13382 would even put his name in to do it :lol: In all seriousness, I would offer a fan trip on a V or VI, hek even possibly a LFS or an El Dorado before Bubba.

If they are in service 
Hang around the DT Transfer area ( Second Street and Pitt Street ) during the M-F peak periods.

A few random things i spotted or found out about cornwall transit that i havent seen posted above.

-V's are almost exclusively used on cornwall business park routes, as the wheelchair lift doesnt work. (According to an op).

-The V's should be retired by the end of the year. (According to an op).

-VI's can be easily found at rush hour on rtes 1, 2, 3.

-The seat inserts have been replaced on the VI's since being bought from miway, however the wheelchair vertical pads still have the miway brown vynil.

Pic below of 0359.

Both Orion Vs are out on main routes today.  0359 on Route 3 and 0360 on Route 2.

0677 didn't come out on the Riverdale route.  0972 is running that route today.

I got an answer from the top: Cornwall Transit expects delivery of 3 new LFS units towards the end of December, and the Vs will be retired in January 2018. So we will still have time to offer a Christmas Lights Charter.
