What does your Local Garage have?

Recommended Posts

so what kind of buses does your local garage have and what kind of run's do they do

 

mine is Merivale Garage ( or Collonade ) and consists of D60LF's, D40i's and Orion 5's

 

My Garage operates only during Weekdays and IIRC is the main provider of articulated buses.

 

Our Orion 5's are used for peak periods but sometimes are out all day

The closest depot I live by is East New York, which has RTS' and Orion 7 HEVs. The closest bus that runs by me based out of ENY is the B25, but the B26 also runs close to me as well as the B46; Fresh Pond (B26) has RTS' and Orion 7 HEVs as well. Flatbush (B46) has RTS' and Orion 7 NGs.

 

HOWEVER, the best depot of all, Yukon in Statem Island, my school depot, has kickass Orion 5s (and not-so-kickass NGs). Every time I get an O5 on the S79, my day is complete :cool:

Mine is Fresh Pond (go figure lol) and its mostly RTS oriented with 3 (formerly 9) RTS's with the Cimmins M11E engines. There's also about 57 Orion 7 OGs there.

But whenever I stay in Bushwick (almost every weekend), my closest one is ENY and they have a mix of RTS & Orion 7 OGs

I have two depots anywhere near me. Operated by two different companies.

Grenda's and Cranbourne transit. Both do the same job really. Route work for the government and their own charter work. Grenda's is also contracted out to do rail replacement buses for the Pakenham/Cranbourne/Frankston/Sandringham lines. They also deal with a few SmartBus routes. Routes 900, 901, 902. The 900 goes from Caulfield to Roville. The 901 goes from Frankston to Ringwood(Soon to be Melbourne Airport via the Northern Suburbs) The 902 goes from Chelsea to Airport West via the Northern Suburbs.

 

In Cranbourne Transit's depot lives 49 buses:

Made up of Volvo, Scania, Mercedes Benz, Nissan chassis.

Mainly with Volgren High floor, Volgren SC221(Coach) Volgren CR221L(Low Floor) and Volgren CR228L(Low Floor) bodies. With a couple of Ansair and Austral Bodied vehicles(both coach type bodies).

 

Grenda's has 213 of the 633 buses it owns in it's Dandy depot(The rest are over thier Cardina, Portsea, Peninsula, Moorabbin and Invicta depots)

Made up of Volvo, Scania, Hino, Toyota, Isuzu, Nissan, Mercedes Benz,MAN, Iveco and Iveco Metro Hybrid chassis.

With Volgren High Floor, CR228L, CR221L, SC221(Coach), SC222X(Coach), C222TX(Coach), CR224L, Toyota, Nissan and Fuji bodies.

(Naturally Grenda's have a good load of Volgren bodied buses because they own Volgren. Plus thier Dandy factory is 2 minutes down the road....)
