Question about NJT 30 ft Nova's ?

Recommended Posts

It seems some 30 plus of the 80 baby Nova's are retired. It looks like they had more service years left just wondering why so early ?

Write-offs or poor maintenance possibly.

But those low floor NABIs aren't coming in until 2012 or 2013, I believe. So even if the baby Novas have poor maintenance, why would they retire them a whole year or so before their replacements come in?!"

I think they should have ordered 35 ft buses if they insist on going smaller then 40 ft. Some of the lines need more room then a 30 ft can handle especially now being that the 31 ft buses will be low floor buses.

I wasn't aware of 30 buses being retired yet. When did this supposedly happen?

As the nabi's have come in this year the 30 ft nova's have been quietly retired.

i still think that 30' buses are redundant when you really need 40's, especially in the high service areas. what can a 30 or 35 do really? hell, some places, they need 45 foot buses like the 84, the 85, the 123, and i mean 45' transit buses like the Compubus or the Millenimum RTS Xtreme. I dunno.
