When you already have the parts made to measure, just keep reinstalling them until you run out of buses.

Are the Ford powertrain more reliable after rebuild?

I assume switching to gas engines has to do with the cost of DEF fluid and emissions?

#W713 was displayed at Hillcrest last Saturday.

And it seems 80 of the Ram ProMaster buses are being pulled in a year in favor of the larger W7xxs.

 The 80 buses would account for both the 2017 and 2018 orders, which will be 5 and 6 years old next year.

The ProMaster buses were ordered and budgeted with the expectation of a 5-year lifespan, which would not requiring a midlife refurb like the Friendly Buses had to receive.

Wow 5 years?  I think the friendly busses lasted longer than 5 years before getting rebuilt. 

Thats unfortunate. How many KM's in 5 years?
