I found this picture of bus RTS-TMC 1993 showcase bus.. So is this why they never deliver bus 201 because they are just showcasing it? And is this bus 201 because of its devoided logos on it?

If my memory is correct, 201 was supposed to be an early version of an electric bus. But TMC went out of business before the project was completed.

Do you like 161 - 180 or 185 - 194 / 870 - 879? Please choose one (1).

185-194 and 870-879 are the same thing, same model, same year and guess what, SAME EVERYTHING!

So I'm gonna have to go with 181-184 even though their not on the list.

I haven't ridden any of Thebus's XDE60s yet, but from my experience from Translink's XDE60s Ifind that the XDE60s ride smoother than the XD60 and I find that the XDE60s sound better a lot better.

I already know that 185 - 194 / 870 - 879 ARE THE SAME. The only difference of 185 - 194 and 870 - 879 is that 870 - 879 has 2 extra handrails.

Well 161 - 180 , 185 - 194 , and 870 - 879 have Cummins ISL9 just like 181 - 184.

Old bus photos are great, but I’d rather see a picture of the new bus #880!

 Is there 880 around?

Not yet it's still at the Kalihi yard parked in the back and yes it has a plate number already assigned but 880 is the only bus we got for now. We don't if we have buses above 880.

I also found way to track buses on any route just add the three digit unit number after the equal sign it will show you where the specific bus is at for example.

Bus 705 

http://hea.thebus.org/nextbus.asp?s=121&r=2&v=705

Bus (Add three digit unit number)

http://hea.thebus.org/nextbus.asp?s=121&r=2&v=

There you go problem solved no need to search bus by bus stop number of a hassle. But I look up 880 it's off GPS for now. So let's keep searching until we see 880 on GPS

Does anybody have a picture? Is 880 an XD60?

It's cool that you can search up specific bus numbers on the GPS. It's also a bit more exciting that you can find things on GPS of buses of 132 , 134 , 139 , 161 on C.

One of the buses is decked out with Christmas paper cut-out decorations on its exterior.... I didn't catch which one it was since I saw it from a distance, but it looked like it had blue tinted windows. Pretty cool!

Could be one of the 701-708 or 670-677 total of 16 gillig blue tinted windows buses

677 was one (1) last year.

Can you do me favor try spot 677 today please? again because right now it's on the route 55 today so it's Christmas again I know it was last year but as a parade bus but this year it's a Christmas sticker bus

This was last year but only as a Christmas parade bus not a Christmas sticker bus. But this year they are using 677 AGAIN as a Christmas sticker bus. Hey it's up to the city to decide on this. They can use they same again and again you may never know until you find out yourself

FYI for those of you haven't seen bus 708 around. The 708 going to be a Christmas parade bus and 677 is going to be the Christmas sticker bus. My friend Auggie says 708 already decorated for tomorrow. So its Kalihi turn to show their new buses on parade tomorrow. And last year was pearl city bus 677 for parade & now its Kalihi turn to be the 708 parade bus.

Seems like they are using the last digit buses like the pearl city went up to 677 and kalihi too this year using up to 708.
