  1. The first Academy was inspected yesterday. So looks like Trans Bridge now has seven buses, 19031-19037.
  2. Those buses are being inspected this week. 19031, 19033 and 19035 are ready for service. VINS are KP015238//KP015246 even.

    I still don't have a VIN for 17185. Or a plate for that matter.
  4. Thank you! These plates haven't hit any of the lookup services I use (Carfax, Autocheck, and Vehicle History. The plate is actually AU-991S update 11/6 Except for 19022-19023 and 19029, as of Monday, November 5, buses 19001-19030 are inspected and ready to go. VINs end with KP015208-15237 on these 30 buses. VINS have been confirmed (for the most part) throiugh KP015285, but some are missing, perhaps D4505's for other customers, or maybe 40 foot buses - I haven't checked yet. If all of those buses are for NJT that takes us up to 19066.

  6. 27 VINs confirmed so far for 2019 D4500CT's. Good pictures with readable license plates are helpful to ID'ing these buses....
  7. Let me do some homework. I'll have some info on that hopefully tonight.
  8. I have confirmed another batch of D4500CT buses that would complete the 2018 model year portion of the Year 3 order. None have been assigned to NJT yet, and I'll advise you when there are some on the property.
  9. The last hybrid bus, 4044.

    Locomotive Engineer

    The news media have been covering NJT commuter rail's latest struggles as they race to meet a deadline to install positive train control on its locomotives and cab units. One of the factors that NJT has been citing to justify cancelled trains is that there aren't enough crews, and if you apply today to become an engineer, it takes about TWO years of training. The road to becoming an engineer is very structured. Bus driver training is like that too, very regimented and weeks of training before you even sit in the driver's seat of a NABI transit or MCI cruiser.

    I always thought that the 317 - a poky, 3-1/2 hour ride through southern NJ making practically every local stop between Asbury Park and Philadelphia, including Joint Base MDL - thrived on older equipment and didn't warrant anything more than a 40 foot bus. Anyone know if the new buses on this route have restrooms?

    18126-18129 could be Newton Ave. I didn't think 45-foot buses belonged there....

    Bus/Train crash

    A NJ Transit train on the Bergen Line has collided with a Saddle River Tours transit bus (6072). No word on any casualties yet. Service on the line has been suspended with alternate bus service provided between Westmont and Broadway.

    Looks like 18120 through at least 18125 have gone to Egg Harbor Twp. Egg Harbor now also has 18010 and 18011 from Washington Twp.
  15. I am going down to Toms River today so I will look for any of those buses. 18125 is on the 559 right now, around Stafford Twp. heading towards Lakewood
