The last of the normal service 2001 D40LF retired in New Haven retired last Wednesday, so Stamford is the only one have them in service now (New Britain has one, but it's at Detroit Diesel after a report said there was a leak at the back of the bus). The last one to retire was 110, which took me by surprise, because the last time I rode it, the A/C had stopped working.

Another thing that doesn't make sense, is that for buses 1741-1799, the seating arrangement has changed. In retrospect, it kind of makes sense with New Haven's crowds, but IMO it's nice to keep things uniform.

Setup 1 (1600s, 1701-1740)

On another note, the switch to the new route system will occur two weeks from today.
