Just received confirmation that all ten of the new 40' New Flyer Xcelsior buses will be coming to Sunrise Coach Lines.



This would make the S92 a 40ft route, correct? If so, this would be the first 40ft route for Suffolk Transit.

Should I put #7001 on the roster as at Sunrise or should I wait until it's in Service?

Very nice photos Jimbo! Would you mind if I shared these photos? You will get credit for them but I just wanted to ask you before I post.

Interesting how the article acts like all 70 something buses are coming when according to New Flyer it seems like only 30 should be coming right now.

Also I like how my count has ST having 150 something and yet Newsday says its like 140 something. I wonder which one of us is wrong.
