The 319 isn't a Howell route and requires restroom equipped buses.

Not all, the ones that were rejected. NJT picked up 17 of these bad boys.

That boy is pretty. I had a feeling they would go to Howell. No Engine Brakes on em tho, thats the sad part.

 

The 319 is outta Egg Harbor and Medowlands. However it'll be really easy for one to say they seen these CTs on the 319.

So which ones out of the order were rejected? And what's happening to the rest of them?

 

@MTAGuy: That's a nice bus.

I'm not exactly sure, but 2210-2268 are the only ones accepted, 2269 and up were rejected.

Probably defective or changed part that (NJT) wanted no part in. (pun intended).

 

Wow, that's a sexie bus!

actually, 18 busses, and i saw bus # 7108 on route 139 last sunday leaving port authority. sad that i didn't have my camera.

 

the only big difference with these busses other than the powertrain is that they have rear route displays and a revised headlight design, courtesy of the CT designation.

NJT actually got 18 (7101-7118). Here is 7103.

The only thing that is NJT-spec about these buses is the exterior paint. These buses are clones of MTA Bus and NYC Transit MCIs otherwise (except engine).

Because they were supposed to go to NYCT and (MTA) Bus. Which makes me wonder, what's keeping the (MTA) from putting the rest into service? I know someone asked this before, just restating.

Modifications related to idling laws in NYC. I would imagine that before the rejects went to Howell, the computer was rebooted in these buses.

And they changed that... whatever you call that thing with the 64 in it in your pictures. They formerly had a manual one on the top of the windshield.

Doubtful; these buses also have rear destination signs for which NJT has no use.

i wonder if NJT would pay Cummins to upgrade the ISM-410 in the bus with an engine brake, i mean, come on... 345 braking horsepower;)B)
