Salem-Keizer Transit 101-112
These were ordered in September, 2001 and were expected to be delivered in late 2002. They were finally delivered in early 2003 from delays in manufacturing due to Metropolitan Transportation Authority's large Orion VII CNG order.
The paint scheme of the buses was a red variation of the Orion VII demonstrator units.
Originally just for 6 units, all 12 units received new CNG tanks as the age of the buses approached 15 years old in 2016-2017.
This leaves 111 and 112 without replacements and according to Cherriots staff they will be in service until more buses will be on order.
