Typical interior layout of 3601-3659, the interior of 3604 is shown here.

Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation 3601-3659 are 2016 bio-diesel Gillig BRT (G27D102N4) buses. They were purchased through a piggyback agreement with Metro Regional Transit Authority in Akron, Ohio. SMART first announced this order in September 2014.[1]

They were scheduled for delivery starting in June 2016, however, they were delivered starting a month early for unknown reasons. This series also returned to the usage of the first two digits of the fleet number to reflect the year in which the vehicle was delivered (albeit with a 3 instead of a 1).

The first unit to enter service was 3601 on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, when it was placed in service operating the final Detroit-bound route 805 run for that morning, and later that day operated the second afternoon Trenton-bound route 830 run. By September 20, 2016, all vehicles in this series had entered service.

Upon entering service, they retired all remaining units from the 23358-23387 series, as well as a few units from the 22301-22348, 22416-22460, 22349-22415, and 23301-23357 orders. They also transferred multiple buses from the aforementioned orders (22301-22460 and 23301-23357) between each of the three terminals, in selected cases these transfers were permanent.
