PostForum: Surface Transit - Eastern United States   Posted: Fri Aug 22, 2008 3:37 pm   Subject: Runaway WMATA bus crashes into apartment
They were trying to keep these buses around a little longer to handle overcrowding. I still lean towards something with the interlock, that the operator somehow did not secure the bus and relied on t ...

Unfortunately, this isn't all rosey for transit systems. These ridership spikes are nice, but they can't afford the diesel fuel to operate, so you're going to end up seeing two things happen that usu ...

From what I've seen, that is not true about double the mpg. RTC's New Flyer CNG vehicles are averaging about 3 mpg while the DE41LFR's are averaging a little under 4. Believe me I pretty much have a ...

It's an all white bus. I haven't really looked for it lately to see if it's running around but I'm sure it is. They are still running some 30' Eldorado's that we gave to them too.

Interesting. There is one operating for the City of Las Vegas' "City Ride". I see it every now and then near the LV Premium Outlets running the loop between there and the Downtown Transpor ...

We're still waiting for those buses to hit the streets. There are A/C issues to still work out so hopefully they'll be out in the next couple of weeks. I believe 15 are in as of now.

That front ad on the NJT MCI just does not look right! But, I guess the $$$ they receive from advertising justifies it.
