I heard/read this rumor on another site a few weeks ago that the Nova RTS's 96-97 will be rebuilt to continue a useful life, rather than scrapped.

 

So... Anyone Know if this isTrueor BS?

Don't older buses get rebuilt every 3 years in order to continue their useful life? The 1995-1997 RTS' aren't getting retired yet anyway; the 1990-1996 RTS + O5s are still going and after that, there are plans to retire the rest of the O5 CNG's as well.

I not so sure.

 

 

They use to have an overhaul program.As we all know they rebuild new looks and GMC RTS back in day but they canceled that program back in 2004 since the costs of Rebuilding a bus is about the same as buying a new one.

 

So I really doubt the RTS well see a second chance of life :P

I remember a few years ago riding a GMC RTS and inside near the entrance i spotted a rebuild plaque showing the builder being GMC and rebuilt by the ENY maintenance facility.

One word answer: NO

 

they are done rebuilding buses which are not cost effective.

 

All buses are going through routine maintenance. 5 to 6 years on General Overhaul (e.g. repainting, fixing interiors, etc.)
