Today was the 31st annual MTA roadeo. Last year budget problems forced the event to be cancelled but it came back better then ever. Here are some photos & Videos from the event:

Brand spankin' new 2010 New Flyer DE41LFR #1002 posed for this photo:


1987 Ex-WMATA (Washington DC) Flxible Metro B #8960:


Another brand new spankin' unit, this time a MCI D4500CT #176C:


Flxible Metro E #9526, 98% back to its original form:


SEPTA New Flyer DE40LFR #8450 A.K.A Bus #30,000:


Haven't been placed into service yet and there is already an F-up on 1002:


The interior of 1002 including a weird placement for a A/C intake vent:

Wow. B-more MTA went back to 4 digit fleet numbers? Also, the new Clever Devices are interesting. I wonder if NJ Transit will get the new color screen ones? But i still don't understand the Orbital Clever Devices situation. Don't both do the same thing and not only provide stop announcements, but also replaces the Luminator keypad. Why have them both? Just a waste of money. Anyways wonderful pictures. Love the one with the new OTR MCI bus.

Bus 176-C is about one month old. When Bush Depot was visited on 9/25/10 by the MNYBA the sticker showed date of Mfg. as 9/10 and it only had about1,700 miles on the odometer.

Guess they didn't bring out the old look (1919?) that is all green and used in the movie "Hairspray".

Nope, but 1912 did, and that's an Ex-BTC coach as well.

I have one more video to post. It's two Flixbles parallel parking. Enjoy:

Not to nitpick, but if the GMC new-look is '74 bus, then it would be 5308 (5308A if A/C equipped).

You're not nitpicking, you're exactly right. the 2900s were T8H-5308As, the first set of New Looks were 5306As
