RTS or Orion 7 NG? Your Choice!

Recommended Posts

If you were to pick only (1) of those two bus models only(Nothing else), what would it be? RTS (GMC/TMC/Novas Bus) or Orion VII NG (CNG/Hybrid)?

 

For those(Newbies on buses) who don't know what an RTS or Orion VII look like heres (2) shots i pulled from my collection:

 

RTS on left, Orion 7 on right

Hm. Both make up my favorite depot, Flatbush. If i HAD to choose...I'd say the RTS, especially the 5XXX series. But no complants with the NG07s.

I have to go with the NG for sure. The RTS for sure has a higher sight level to see more in front of you. The NG has Great mirrors (you see everything out side)It will also out run every RTS for sure. Loading of disabled and elderly is great cause there are no stairs to climb when entering the bus. only down fall is when the bus has a heavy standing load, nobody wants to go the second level, EVER!!!

Oh yeah The NG Orion has a very bad danger spot. Let Me Explain, right after you pass the farebox you have to pass the tires wells. There are no hand rails there. If the bus operator presses the gas too hard (so much torque from motor) it will jolt a person pretty bad. I always wait for the old or disabled to be seated before pressing the gas pedal.

RTS's still popular to certain cities b/c they don't want Low Floor buses!

 

It's too bad New York is not one of them,they love the low floor buses.

Low floors have less space & standing space than high floor buses. But of course, it depends on what specifications was chosen for the model being purchased
