20802 is at CMF. Whomever said it was at Big Tree, that garage hasn't seen that bus. They are still waiting on 20801 to make an appearance

20801 and 20802 are at CMF/Ironbound. Any word on other new buses coming to NJT?

Not yet.... might be a while as they're rigorously checking out these buses. 20801 is at Hilton Garage today.

Any info in 20803 and up?

No info yet, but I'm assuming they may arrive within the next month to 3 months. Hopefully NJT put them on priority order because the Neos are going through it.

From what I've been observing, they've kept 20802 on the 39 only. It hasn't been on the 13 or weekend 70 yet, but that will more than likely change very soon. 

If they do the same thing they did with 20801, it could end up on the 107 on an early AM run.

Usually if they send out an artic on the 107 to NY, it becomes the 126 afterwards to help out Greenville, Fairview, and Meadowlands.

By whom? Because as far as I remember, I recall seeing the Volvos doing trips to/from PABT.

156, 158, 159 all use 60 FT so I don’t see why the 107 or any other routes would not be able to.

Just found on Carfax the next 25 VINs in sequence from 20802 (73011-73035). If these are indeed NJT's buses that would take us to 20827. Like the two demos, these buses are being built in St. Cloud, MN. It's sort of a no brainer as St. Cloud is on the way to Pembina, they can drop off some delivery drivers at New Flyer on the way to MCI.

Not sure if you're able to answer this. but they don't fly the pickup drivers out there to get them do they? If that's the case, this whole Coronavirus hysteria might deter them from flying to MN to pick up the buses.
