When I lived in Texas back in 2006, Houston Metro had a sizable fleet of Neoplan atrics. Do they still run? I will be there next weekend and would like to get some pictures - something I did not think about when I lived there.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

I'm not from Houston, but when I went there last summer (Twice actually) there were none to be found. According to some websites, those buses were retired in the late 2000s. They have since been replaced by Nova LFSA artics.

Some of the ex-Houston Neoplan artics were purchased second-hand by R-GRTA in Rochester in the late 2000's. Two of them were still on the roster a year ago but I believe they have now been retired since the authority received new Xcelsior articulateds last year.
