Why has the 6 returned to ETI operation?  Because of road works and a diversion, Muni had to use XT40s with their off-wire capability for months. I'm not sure passengers (as opposed to transit geeks) are going to be happy with high-floor ETIs returning to their route.

You gotta point. But since Potrero still needs to run the ETIs, the 6 is really the only route now since the 30 needs all the XT40s

Are there Neoplan USA AN440A Transliners still in service in the Bay Area yet?

Any reason why the driver shortage particularly affects Presidio? I read that the system has relied heavily on big levels of overtime. Have Presidio drivers banned overtime working?

Does anyone know what happened to 7031? There are reports that it was towed this morning at 2am and is possibly headed to auction

On 5/22/19, I found 8966 sitting at a bus stop with the back part open. I don't know why this happened. The driver was able to move the bus forward a little. Here are some pictures of the engine.

Here is a video of it: 

 

I also saw 8956 with a green background on the front sign.
