That paint scheme with that prevost + Mta logos looks so sexy, If MTA plans on buying prevosts, we would have 2 buses with sexy backs !

Someone has been reading our posts, and picking up on ideas. 3 door artics, has been spoken by several of us, MTA is now testing them. Prevost Le Mirage (now known as X3-45), has been spoken about, especially by me. I spoke of it being shorter in height than the MCI, and the fact that since MCI is swamped with coach orders, MTA should of had went to Prevost, and gotten coaches quicker...Now they are testing one. Seems like MTA isn't just relying on one or two manufacturers, and is actually shopping around, putting the vehicles on the road.......I hope they get these, if they are replacing some of the older MCI's, or want to expand service in the future......

 

Nice catch by the way..........

Prevost X3-45. Good bus. I just don't see why it has 2 numbers (0052, 9387). I recognize that the vehicle has Alcoa wheels. Looks good. I wonder If MTA is considering a return to them. I also like that newly introduced paint scheme.

Actully that bus has florida license plates. There insides are very slimar to the D4500 buses. The D4500 are kinda luxury buses if you think about it.

Very nice pictures from staten island.

9421 & 9424 bring dem back to FLATBUSH, but they are doing ALRIGHT in yukon, unlike 9417 which got scraped earlier this month :P

Looks like the (MTA) testing out a new bus possibly going to Charleston Depot, and If it does go to charleston, can these prevost buses be on the x23/24??, along with some new orders of the MCI...

 

Off topic: When does SI BRT begins???, I know BX BRT is 6/29, and Manhattan BRT

(M15) is 8/31* (I could be incorrect with that, can someone confirm on this please).

We saw it today pulling into Casleton off a Training run. It looks even better in person. Trevor Logan of TTMG got a shot, but I wasn't prepared so I missed the oportunity. I'll most likely go back tomorrow. We also saw 3800 sitting right in front too.

They are coaches, not buses. Prevost X3-45 is the D4500 competition, and the D model has been layething the slap on the Prevost candy a$$. The Prevost is more expensive, and compared to MCIs, Prevost has luxury status......

Damn I wish I met up with you guys earlier. I lost it when Trevor showed me the shot of it.

 

I spoke to someone at the Roadeo who said that the Prevost was on the X10 last week.
Yeah, and thats suppose to be the only route it'll be testing on for the 30 days its testing.
