New routes 20, 302, 320, 322 operates out of North
Route 12 moved to Central

None, rt. 45 was moved from Ryerson to North Base.

Is 12 no longer a trolley route? Maybe that's a result of madison brt construction. And I thought 45 was now running out of north, because it connected with route 75, and a driver that I know said that's what's happening. Also, 45 is nowhere near the Eastside. Maybe you meant 245?

Nope 12 isn't a trolley route anymore, it's been using Orions since the service change. Also 45 is now running out of North

Has anyone else noticed these abnormally large numbers on 2812? I searched online and couldn't find another image of these numbers besides this video screenshot.

I saw this on either a D40LF or an Orion VII a few years back.  It was on one of the front windows (not sure which side though).  Just speculation on my part, but perhaps the window was replaced and the larger numbers were used instead for whatever reason.

Most likely, it's a long-term dieselization due to construction for Madison BRT. Similar things have been done for other major construction projects in recent years (route 70 for the Fairview Bridge, route 44 for NW Market St paving, and route 4 for 23rd Ave S paving). Metro seems to be a bit short on trolleys since the route 70 came back anyway.

If anyone could update the CPTDB page for the Metro Employees Historic Vehicle Association to add 2004 New Flyer DE60LF 2766 to the page, that would be great. I even have a photo of it that anyone can use. Just be sure to credit me for it. Photo was taken on October 8th:

And here's the build plate of 2766 for a bonus pic. Bus was made in October of 2004.

I guess they didn't wanna preserve the bike rack along with it. Shame, the bus kinda looks incomplete without it.

They're probably gonna put it back on after they're done completely restoring it. When I was over at the boneyard, the interior looked clean and there were a few rags inside. In about a week, I'd say the bike rack will be back on. They're likely just putting the finishing touches on it. Could you please update the page on CPTDB wiki, for both KC Metro and MEHVA?

I would if I could but I can't, I think @Zortancan though.

Also to whoever changed 342 from north base to south base, that is incorrect, 342 still runs out of north and bellevue bases.

 

You do know it's public knowledge and accessible to anybody as to who made the edits.  Go to "View History" at the top of the page.  Maybe send a PM to the appropriate editor and kindly ask for a correction?  

Here is the revision page that you're questioning  ...the 342 is the last entry on the page:
