imagine if the (MTA) would order those, as well as RTS Hybrids. they would make NYC look nice. even with Metro Flexibles too, not the retired ones, i mean the ones like on (NJT).

If the (MTA) ordered NABI low floor hybrids, that would be freaking awesome, now that NABI is in Bee Line and will be visiting The Bronx, there might be a change even though the (MTA) is Anti-NABI

 

Those buses look crazy good! Awesome Catch!

Nice. Can't wait for the rest of them to arrive.

 

I wonder how that would look in NJT colors. Time to dust off the "paintboard".

The bus looks nice with the restyled front, but I hope the ride quality is better than Los Angeles's NABI 40-LFWs -- which shake and rattle every time the bus goes over a small bump.

 

I also hope the hybrid system doesn't prove to be problematic -- after all, this is only the second order of production hybrid buses that NABI has manufactured so far (the first order went to Las Vegas.) But we'll have to wait and see what happens.

 

I assume these are replacing the 1995-1996 Orion Vs? Those buses wouldn't be retired for another few years if it were the MTA making these decisions.

Actually, this is the third order of production hybrid buses from NABI. First---it was Las Vegas (RTC Transit); then came Broward County Transit; now we have Bee-Line Bus Service.

 

BTW, both RTC Transit and Broward County Transit have hybrids as well as diesels in their fleet.

Right, I forgot about the Broward buses... thanks for the correction.

 

The Nashville MTA also put six hybrid NABI 60-BRTs into service last month, for the record.

You're welcome.

 

Oh yeah---those six hybrid 60-BRTs for Nashville MTA. Too bad Houston METRO isn't getting any artics of any propulsion type anytime soon.
