I don't wanna see them go either. I love the engine sound of them, I could immitate that pretty well I might add! What I realy wanna see is some RTS buses on the Bee-Line roster... RTS' look sexy in Bee-Line colors! I miss the Bee-Line RTS...

Bee-Line keeps their buses in excellent working order, but the 400 series Orions do suffer from the same thing the NYCTA 1995-96 Orions suffer from. Weak A/C. Bee-Lines 600 series A/Cs are far superior. Stronger engine = stronger A/C........

I miss those too. I remember when the fishbowls, were dominant here, and when the RTSs first came in, they were dominant on the 6, 25, and 30. Crazy thing is the Orion V 400 series, were dominant on those routes when they first came in. The Flexibles basically did the GMC fishbowls' routes. The last RTS I rode here in Westchester was on the 76 route (Rye-Port Chester Transit). They had one baby RTS, then when Liberty got rid of the 40ft RTS's, one 40fter was given to Rye-Port Chester Transit. Bus broke down numerous times, on my way to work (at Rye Playland).....

The last RTS bus that i rode was a 35 footer on the 23-Alexander St. line back in 2000 or 2001 i believe. I also seen an RTS going down Van Cortlandt Park Ave towards Elm St after it's last run for that evening on Route 32-Yonkers Loop.

Those were the end for Liberty Lines use, but Rye-Port Chester Transit had them last, when the county took the last 40fter from Liberty and sent that over there.......

I wonder if possible where I could find out where the Bee-Line RTSs are now, I know they are long gone, but they must be sitting in some junk lot somwhere. I just wanna see them if posible.

From what I've read, BeeLine40LFWright.gif* will be the new Bee-Line Hybrids.

 

*For those who don't know, that's a NABI 40-LFW Hybrid.

You heard correctly ken! There are about 95 or so buses on order, they are definitely replacing the 400 series buses.

170 is preserved by Liberty and parked at the front of lane 1 in 475 I/F/O the Old Look GM. You can now rest easy, however it has all slider windows like the DOT buses and has the reflective tape sceme like the 35ft. RTS's had before they were retired. I was dyin' to take that out, I even asked if I could be trained on it when I was in training there.:)
