MUNI (San Francisco, CA)

I already wrote all of this on the wiki, but I thought I'd share the info here as well on the Transurbano Ex-Muni Neoplan AN460 spotting in Guatemala. I am sure it is 6411.

A guy named Carlos bought 6202, 6226, 6235, 6239, 6247, 6271, 6275, 6410, 6411, 6414 & 6415 at 2 auctions in April-May 2018 with plans to sell them in Panama (he literally told me that at auction). I later found 6202, 6226, 6235, 6239, 6271, 6275, 6410 & 6414 stored in a lot in Sacramento where a friend was parking his bus temporarily. In January 2019, the storage yard did a lien sale of 6202, 6226, 6239, 6271, 6275 & 6410 on Craigslist.... they all got scrapped a month later (junk records were found by me). 6235, 6247, 6414, 6411 & 6415 remained unknown (no registrations or junk records). In this photo, I can tell this bus has a flipdot sign, which leaves only 6414, 6411 & 6415. Finally @UpDownAcross38 & I looked at the "watch your step" sticker in auction photos and confirmed only 6411 had a direct match. That means possibly 3 or 5 units were sold to Transurbano, hopefully.

Update from northern MN: shells of 5878, 5879, and 5880 are at Crookston and awaiting assembly. At this rate, assuming 3 shells/week, 5885 should be in Crookston next week (week of 9/15). From tracking 5798 (which was delivered to Crookston as a shell on Thanksgiving, and delivered in early January), it looks like 5885 will be delivered in the last week of October.

On September 7, 2019 the ETIs officially retired. Due to battery issue the remaining 46 units were pulled out of service. I will miss these buses a lot...Probably the most unique buses in the muni fleet. RIP ETI 14trSF.

So sad. They will preserve at least one I hope?

No indication as of yet. They could also go to a transit museum, but the museums need money to ship something like that out there. IRM once told me they were quoted $10,000 to ship a KCM bus out to their museum.

I found this pdf document with very nice detailed information and photos of the NABI's when they were being inspected by SFO. This includes all 22 units that they acquired before auctioning off all but 6 of them. I have it linked on the NABI wiki page now too. Enjoy. 412946709.pdf

It will be interesting to see how they perform in San Francisco's topography.

 

Same here, I interested to see which Bus Manufacturer gets the Contract from MUNI. It could be New Flyer, Gillig or BYD. Who knows.
