    I saw 7278 in person for the first time this morning. You guys take great pics but they don't do that bus any justice! She looks great.......even with the new headlights! I will say they do need to put the big logo on the front of that bus but otherwise it looks like a great bus!

    Post here for anything relating to 7278 and the hot mess that has been going on at Howell. 

    Wonder why they would not start where the designlines left off 7215 or so ?

    What is sitting/standing capacity on this bus. BZGuy brought to my attention that the older CNGs were supposed to stand 2?

    These are also at 2 Standees. Seating is pretty much the same as the rest of the D4500s/CLs/CTs

    I wonder if 7254 and co. will begin to arrive towards the beginning of September. The pilot arrived on time so the rest of the order should be on time as well.

    It won't be so soon, I would say October-November they should be coming in, but things can change.

    7278 is currently on the 133. Just saw it on the parkway. Guess they're already testing it on the non-Route 9 lines, which means either the 68, 131, 135, 137 or 138 is next.

    Finally got to see what 7278 does on the highway. The ride was really smooth and comfortable. The ISL-G was silent but audible, and it was putting in work too.

    I saw an MCI without logos at the Cummins facility up in Kearny. It might be another CNG (Probably 7254).
