I am not sure of the exact date that 502 was pulled from service. It was listed on E-bay (with no takers) on May 31, 2007. So it was prior to that she stopped running but how and when Town of Huntington disposed of the bus is unknown


the caption of the pic said May 30, 2007 or it may have been the 31st.

not to be mean, but in the pic's that i saw (idk if they were the same used on Ebay) the bus was all dirty, so if they used the same pics it is no wonder why nobody put an offer on it.


The reason nobdy went after either bus, was that they were stripped of all usable parts and were being sold as "shells" for nothing more than scrap metal value

I think that this was a first attempt by HART BUS (not me) to sell on E-bay and hope that they'd get a few $$$$ more than from a scrap dealer, perhaps from someone looking for a storage shed. With no bids, that idea didn't work
