MTA Alexander-Dennis SuperLo Enviro500 Demonstrator

Recommended Posts

A couple of things to note:

- The bus will be running out of Charleston, and will be relegated on the Lincoln Tunnel express lines, most likely the X17J.

- This is not built to MTA specs, per the Alexander-Dennis people. It was built as a demonstrator for GO Transit in Toronto, Ontario. As such, the bus does not have a farebox upfront. I heard the farebox will be placed behind the front right wheel for this demonstrator. If the MTA does order the SuperLo, the farebox would be in front as is the norm...if they find a way.

- The headroom in the upper level is low 5'7" and that is LOW. I'm 5'8", and my head was touching the ceiling. Many people had to crane their necks. I've never had to do that on a bus.

- It was made in Nappanee, Indiana or so I was told.

- The MTA plans to have off-board payment "concurrent" with a Smartcard, along with "robust" fare-evasion restrictions by 2020.
