YRT Retirements

Recommended Posts

547 was out on the 21 this AM. Not sure if it was a change-off for another unit (I seem to recall checking earlier and seeing 709 in its place with 507 as the other unit, but I could be wrong). It's also been re-plated and sports a new high license plate: 220 5BK.

Haven't seen one out in SW territory in a long while, but I suppose if they really needed a spare bus...

546 and 623 also returned to service. Those units went 560/561 yesterday.

I think this is because they experiencing fleet shortage on community bus routes(they only had two 30ft and two arbocs so if they are not available, they had to bring regular 40ft into service).

New plates on reactivated previously retired units (all verified):
546: 220 4BK
547: 220 5BK
623: 220 6BK

With the bunch of units sold off recently, that leaves 550, 554, and 619-621 stored out of service or retired without disposition.

I was gonna say.. The 03 LF deaths begin. Is there a timeline in when they will retire though?

This unit is retired advance due to fire.

All units underwent life extension between 2013 and 2015 and YRT is expecting D40LF to last 18 years. so can not say rest of this series will retire at this point.

I think D40LF 333 might be pooched, it hasn't shown up out in service for a good while now. 546, 547 and 623 likely done as well, as those have been MIA over the past little while (I suspect retired when the other remaining 500's were).

EDIT: after a good long absence, 333 appears to be back in service (as of March 13th).

I emailed YRT about availability of the 5XX and 6XX EZ Rider IIs a few weeks ago (was hoping to do a charter). They informed me that the remaining 3 units are now retired.

Some recent updates from the field:

Also from another source at Southwest: 202, 205, 208, 209, 211, 213, 216 and 219 are now retired
