Note: The 72 has been "temporarily" converted to diesel operation since 3/23/2013 because of construction. It currently operates out of the Charlestown Garage as a result.

Fleet

North Cambridge's fleet has remained very stable over the years due to it only housing trolleybuses, so though the table may not have a recent "Last updated" date, it is very likely still accurate.
