This photo shows four ex-Bee-Line RTSes purchased by Entertainment Express, which ran a bar-hopping shuttle in downtown Providence about five years ago.



Production records indicate that Bee-Line's RTSes were originally numbered 101-205, but these are 210, 206, 217, and what appears to be 216. Were these renumbered, or did they come from somewhere else?

According to a Westchester County roster in the Nov-Dec. 1994 issue of Motor Coach Today, quite a few of the RTS's were indeed renumbered. These buses were originally:

206 - ex 200
210 - ex 196
216 - ex 105
217 - ex 104

No reason is given for the renumbering. I'll post the full list later.
