  1. Correction: only 37004 and 37012 entered service lately. 37002, 37003, and 37007 are still yet to go into service. 37004 is a 1995 model. Ex-OCTA 5247. 37012 is a 1997 model. Ex-OCTA 5337. Here are some photos I took of 37004 and 37012: Additionally, 37013 is still completely white, but it's in service with Tiger Transit logos taped to the window. I wonder when it'll get painted...
  2. Looks like 37002-37004, 37007, and 37012 have finally entered service. There's a couple more 1995 models in this batch (e.g. 37004).
  3. Wow, considering this is a Meadowlands unit it is very well possible that the 21000s will be replacing their 7100s and maybe also 9000s, as well as those at Wayne.
  4. So I decided to create a thread for university transit systems in the NJ and tri-state area, as there are plenty of university transit systems around here that I think deserves a thread of their own. For instance, Rutgers University, Princeton University, and College of Staten Island.

  5. Looks like 20807-20809 all have a modified engine door with vents. Probably testing if it helps with cooling the engine.
  6. 20906 currently on 158. Wonder if Meadowlands will be doing 158 as well; heard they're doing 159 alongside Fairview.
  7. More info on these buses: Confirmed units: 37001-37014. 1995-98 models. Ex-OCTA units. Cummins ISC engine (repowered from Detroit Diesel series 50 in 2002-03 back at OCTA). Operated at Washington State after retiring from OCTA before coming to Princeton under the operator WeDriveU. Most units in the series are December 1997 models. 37005 ex-OCTA 5378; 37009 ex-OCTA 5329; 37011 ex-OCTA 5315; 37013 ex-OCTA 5322. 37001 is a 1995 model. Ex-OCTA 5214. 37014 is 1998. Ex-OCTA 5379.
  8. My guess is that some of the lav units for Meadowlands have already been built. Is there any way to tell from the VIN if it's a lav unit?
  9. According to a FB post, looks like 20849 went to Fairview too. Guessing they probably took out the farebox.
  10. Now, in addition to 20825, Hilton also has 20826-20828 from Big Tree, so those displaced the 20880s.
  11. 20883 and 20885 at Fairview. Looks like Hilton probably won't be keeping any of their 20880s.
  12. At least 8 1997 New Flyer D40LFs have entered service at Princeton University, after First Transit left and their ElDorados retired. They've been running cutaways for a few weeks, but now they have the D40LFs as part of their interim fleet that will run until tentatively Fall 2022 when they receive electric buses.
