18116 and 18117 are apparently at Meadowlands (on the 166X and 127S, respectfully). Weren't they slated to go to Saddle River?

That bus was a Nabi from NJT 6101 and it looked totaled. It was running for Saddle river. I think that must be about 7 or 8 totaled now. Nabi's totaled that i know of are 5612, 5784, 6348, 6357, 6101, badly damaged  outcome unknown  are 5772, 5998, 5952, 6545. I'm sure a few more.

Looks like these buses need some inspection time because these buses have either caught on fire or accident prone

Most were head on crashes so driver error involved by someone. In the case of bus 6348 the driver hit a tree. That was severe damage. Then there was bus 5612 that T-boned 5784 in Newark another caused by a driver not the bus.  The bus fire they will look at that to see what the cause was.

I think 18107 through 18117 are Meadowlands. 18118-18119 are Saddle River Trails. Anyone seen 18120-18129?

Looks like 18120 through at least 18125 have gone to Egg Harbor Twp.

Egg Harbor now also has 18010 and 18011 from Washington Twp.

Looks like you can add another possible totaled Nabi 6072 hit by a train today in Garfield. That's 2 totaled running for Saddle River in the last 2 weeks. The other caught fire 6101.

Reports say that the bus was operated by Community Coach, not Saddle River

18126-18129 could be Newton Ave. I didn't think 45-foot buses belonged there....

Yes to my surprise as well; there are 45 footers running on the 316 and 317.  18127 and 18129 are on the 317 and 18128 on the 316 as of this morning.   None have been used yet on the 409.

I always thought that the 317 - a poky, 3-1/2 hour ride through southern NJ making practically every local stop between Asbury Park and Philadelphia, including Joint Base MDL - thrived on older equipment and didn't warrant anything more than a 40 foot bus.

Anyone know if the new buses on this route have restrooms?
