Buses in the snow

Recommended Posts

Cool pics!

 

 

Thanks!

 

Interesting... Why are some of the local buses so bloody small??

 

 

They were acquired four years ago,and since then the population has increased significantly, hence the need for 40 footers. Terrible capacity these days, trying to fit 30~ high school students onto one such bus is a nightmare.

 

Mind, before they came in they used cutaways so it is an improvement of sorts!

lol... Not very smart... It's always best to get bigger buses especially if there is little difference in fuel costs, etc. We have little buses like that for the MetroNorth shuttle and sometimes the buses are packed like sardine cans. There's only one door and certainly not enough space for people to be standing... <_< Edited by Via Garibaldi 8

That's true. The buses are lemons, though, and they may be retired earlier than expected (Blue Bird Ultra LF).

 

Their first day was extremely problematic... leaky A/C, breakdowns, etc and in light of a bus shortage the agency actually leased a rear door Orion VI, which IIRC has the same amount of seats.

lol... Are any of those Canadian companies building any buses for the (MTA) now??

Milton bought that VI from MTB

No idea if all of the MTA's MCIs have been built and delivered, but if so there's also the Xcelsiors. If nothing else, they have excellent heating. Gotta love 'em in the winter.

It was originally leased though.

Approved!

Ha! Yeah right.... I don't know what buses you're talking about because our express buses are anything but warm in the winter... Usually have to put my coat back on to keep warm. <_<
