Sound Transit 801-827 are 1994 model Orion 05.501 CNG buses built between 1994 and 1995. These buses were purchased from Pierce Transit in 1999 for use exclusively on Sound Transit routes originating from Pierce County to reduce costs and procurement timeline[1]. They were purchased for between $204,313 and $221,142 depending on year of manufacture[1].

Bus features[1]:

  • Luggage racks
  • Air conditioning
  • Individually controlled reading lights
  • Carpeted flooring (later converted to RCA rubber flooring)[2]

All buses were stored and maintained by Pierce Transit at its facilities given the requirement for CNG maintenance infrastructure[1].

Coaches 803, 805-810, 812-814, 816, 820-822 and 825 were retired and later sold at auction in June of 2008[2]. The balance of coaches were placed into fleet reserve with Pierce Transit[2].
