The RTS lives!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Wow this is great, but the MTA won't get its buses from there though.

 

Actully, the MTA could still get RTSs. Remeber the MTA and MCI might not be on the greatest terms right now and soon theres about over 200 PBL CNGs that will need to be replaced soon cause of the CNG tanks. You never know the TA could get an surbuban RTS order and some transits for Spring creek and CP....

Lets pray that they would. I would praise the MTA if they ordered MTS RTSs......

Well thats kool then, although the RTS maybe under a rebirth for the 2000s, the (MTA) may not take em it guess, seeing that they want modern buses, the RTS looks more of a classic, off the 80s and 90s. If you compare the looks from Orion V off an RTS~TMC/Nova , the Orion Vs look much newer.. But i could be wrong, who knows.. 0_0

Lets hope Millennium can do better this time around. The whole mess with NJT and being bankrupt really screwed them the first time they were in business.

They are a real manufacture they already made some RTSs for a casino in CT.

Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut to be exact, and those buses up there were NJT rejects (4102 to 4107 IIRC, lord knows whatever happened to 4101 and 4201).

 

You also have Millennium RTSs running at a Texas university I believe, and in Pueblo, Colorado.

Those last four depots you mentioned will most likely get NGs... LGA CP and FR its going to be interesting as to what the MTA will do with those depots.

IIRC MTS has a more modern looking RTS, TTC in canada is running them (But those are Novas though) Heres an vid (Not mine) of the RTS with the more modern design running in TTC.

 

 

 

 

 

I doubt, the MTA is looking to low floor buses.

MTS is delvoping an LF RTS called the "RTS extreme". Maybe MTS can send the MTA an demo and test it out to see how an LF RTS would work out...

It's possible, but remember there are quite a number of possible contenders that the MTA is selecting from.

well NJT reject those MTS RTS because it had they found the quality build problem right away, mainly the electrical system,from what i heard and NJT told to Millenium that they would meet the delivery time specifically, Millenium could not hold the promise and all the delivery delayed, so NJT was suing them. that what i heard the reason why NJT rejected those MTS RTS.

 

So they are ordering buses from NABI.

a lot of good points were made here. the (MTA) is looking for low floors only. and as far as suburbans, OTR buses have been there choice

The new Millennium website appears to be even more poorly-designed than the old one, neither of which were characteristic of a major transit bus manufacturer.

 

Millennium is on life support, and unless they can get their act together, I wouldn't expect any new RTSs to roll out of Roswell. Especially considering the fact that the high-floor RTS design, as legendary as it may be, is severely outdated, given the new lines of low-floor buses offered by all the other major manufacturers.

 

The low-floor RTS Extreme seems to be an interesting bus, but given the financial state of Millennium today, I doubt it'll be produced en masse.
