Stalwart23,

As the head of the unofficial welcoming committee, let me take this opportunity to say 'glad to have you aboard', and looking forward to your most interesting posts.

I was never much into the operation of Pioneer/Command because it came about after my time at Green Line, but I would certainly be interested in knowing more about Pioneer and what kind of equipment they operated especially pre New Look.

Your Command roster is great!

Thanks for sharing.

Free-transfer,

Nice picture of Pioneer # 412 which was ex Green Line # 412 and one of 30 (401 ro 430) GM TDH 5301's delivered to the company in three shipments between July 1960 and June 1961.

#'s 412 to 416 went to Pioneer Bus Corporation as 412 to 416 in 1973.

#'s 401 to 404 went to Avenue 'B' and East Broadway Transit as #'s 507 to 510 in 1972.

#'s 406 to 409 went to Denver Metro as #'s 101 to 105 in 1973

The balance of the New Look 400's were scrapped.

It definitely looks familiar. When I was a Baruch student in the mid 80s I remember seeing much of these buses being used by Command. Most of these buses had clearly seen better days. Command had also rec'd some much needed new RTSs.

An update and expansion on the above data.

1 - Bus # 235 - According to Joe Saitta's caption to the 5/10-5/16/98 week of his Mega-Calendar, this bus started out as #658 of Mid-Island Transit, then went to Pioneer as #1810, then to Command as 235 then leased to Green Bus Lines as # 1235 when it was photographed by Doug Grotjan.

I saw this bus in the DOT yard in East Carnarsie on 6/7/00 & 8/23/00 awaiting disposition.
