  1. apparently 7187 has been scrapped. 2009 MCI D4500CL.
  2. I've seen pictures of the actual bus. Plain white, as expected. The certificate lettering indicates OWNED & OPERATED BY TRANS-BRIDGE LINES giving all the registry numbers associated with Trans-Bridge. But no numbering.
  3. The most recent Trans-Bridge buses that are owned by NJ Transit, 19031-19037, have Pennsylvania plates. Most buses that run with apportioned plates get them registered in, of all places, Illinois. But all of NJT's private carrier cruisers acquired in the last three years have NJ Apportioned plates.
  4. Per its Twitter feed, Trans-Bridge Lines (which runs seven NJT buses) will begin testing a new MCI D45 today. Plain white bus with no markings. The company is quick to stress that this bus is not restroom equipped.
  5. No 19183 or 19184. I forgot that the 2019 order was only 182 coaches. September 2019 will begin the process of building the 2020 coaches, which will begin with 20001. All 183 of the 2020 buses will be D4500CT's and will have the Cummins X12 engine. See you in September, as they say.
  6. No word yet. I'm thinking they're coming 2021 and are going to be D4020's, which are scheduled to replace the D4000CT that year. There will be no 40-foot option for the D45 CRT LE.
  7. 6474, 6477 and at least one other bus from Montgomery & Westside IBOA have been transferred to NJ Transit (possibly Ironbound). At the shops right now having the Clever Device installed, so I am told.
  8. 19183 and 19184 have not been delivered yet to my knowledge. I'll keep looking though.
  9. The only buses with the Cummins X12 are 19104 and 19119-19127. All others have the older ISX-12. I believe with the 2020 buses the X12 becomes standard equipment in the MCI commuter coaches. No Detroit/Daimler engine options for commuter coaches any more. That engine is now only being used in J4500's as an option.
  10. Registrations have been verified for all the above buses and the VINs have been confirmed. The majority of this year's buses still have the Cummins ISX-12 buses. We are still waiting for 19183 and 19184, otherwise the 2019 portion of the MCI order is done. Next up should be the New Flyer artics, then the 2020 MCI's.
  11. Meadowlands should also have 18117, correct? 18118-18119 are at Saddle River, and I think those are lavs too. Egg Harbor also has 18120-18125...?
  12. The Neoplans will start going once the New Flyer artics arrive sometime this fall. It will take about a year to deliver all 85 buses in the order. The current breakdown of garages using artic buses is: Fairview - 7 transits, all 36 suburbans Big Tree - 20 transits Hilton - 22 transits The real fun is going to begin if NJT picks up the option for another 85 artics. where are they going to put them?
  13. After all that effort to get some more routes under their belt and to lose them. Oh well at least Saddle River still has those cruiser routes.
  14. We've already talked about 5919; bus has been dead since 2013. Also we appreciate your enthusiasm about adding information but PLEASE do not quote the entire fleet roster to add one line of info. Thank you!
