Sorry to bump this thread out of the mothballs, but I was wondering about Disney's Nova LFS 4953 as mentioned above, I've never found any trace of this out-of-sequence bus. Was it a demo, is it still with Disney?

 

Also, any news on the 10 new LFS that have supposedly been built for Disney late last year? No photos or even sightings have surfaced yet.

 

To my knowledge the above roster can be updated with:

4984 <-2008 DesignLine demo, returned

4985-4999 <-2009 Gillig LF

Great pictures MTARegional Bus, thanks! I couldn't help but notice in some of your pictures a green and white LFS from the Shades of Green resort. The only other picture of one of these buses can be found here:

Does anyone know if this is a former Disney bus, and if so which one? And, are any other details available about the SoG fleet?

The "Downtown Disney" buses are not Disney's. Rather, they are operated by a private company that is contracted by several of the off Disney property resorts.

All right, found a little bit more about those green buses, they are operated by Escot Bus Lines and they have at least 2 Nova LFS, 3404 and 3406. Probably not ex-Disney because they have different rear lights. Likely ex-Coach USA/First, the details would match much better.

Before i left MEARS to work for HART in Tampa,Florida, Disney did test on demo Designline bus for almost 2 month than left and #4985-#4999 came on broad after that. Also they should have 10 new LFS novabus by now and suppost to replace RTS buses by the end of 2010.

Thanks for the details! :tup: Any idea where those Escot buses came from? I doubt they are 2004 buses though, their rear cap looks older, more like 2000 vintage.

I find it strange there have been no sightings of the new LFS yet. Oh, and would you happen to know anything about LFS 4953, you mentioned it in the first post but I never was able to find anything about it, could it have been a demo too?

 

Cheers! :tup:

What i remember when Shades of Green Resort give contract to ESCOT back in late 2008 and bought 6 white LFS with low 2xx number but not sure where they came from.

It makes perfect sense! They would be ex-Coach USA/First Transit indeed, they did sell their 200-series 1999 LFS (200-207), but only 3 are unaccounted for. The other 3 could be ex-Coach USA/First Puerto Rico in the 21300 series, disposed of at the same time.

 

Thanks a lot for the info! :tup:

 

Oh and by any chance do you remember the fleet number of the toasted one?

Can you ride those buses no matter what or do you really have to pay to get into Disney just to ride them?

 

Nope the ride is free.
