Photos & Videos: Academy Fades into the Night @ Rutgers

Recommended Posts

June 30th was the last day of operation at Rutgers University for Academy. The very next day, First Transit would take over.

 

 

Enjoy!

The last bus of the night would be New Flyer D60LF #2026, here at the end of it's run on College Avenue.

Excellent photos and videos, this will be one very interesting change. I dont know but seeing those ElDorado AXESS models with the Rutgers scheme is very mindboggling! Are those DE60LFs from the rejected CTA order?

Thanks Shane!

 

The New Flyers are ex-OC Transpo D60LF units.

And yes, definitely going to take some getting use to with the El Dorados!

Thanks bro.

 

First Transit has their own set of New Flyer D60LFs which are ex-OC Transpo units. The Academy New Flyers are still in their possession and I don't know whats going to be next for them yet.

 

Quite a few Academy drivers switched over to First Transit. First had offered them their same jobs so many of them took the offer. In fact, most of the drivers I saw out on First's takeover day were Academy drivers.

IIRC it was either 6 or 8 ex OC-Transpo D60LF's that First Transit picked up from New Flyer
