On Thursday the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority pulled all 60 of its New Flyer XDE40 Xcelsior buses off the road due to a safety issue. Reportedly the issue is with the front suspension and all buses must be inspected before returning to service (some buses began returning to service late Thursday). Has anyone heard if other agencies have had similar problems with their Xcelsior fleets?

I have not heard anything. I can try to check if there is anything going on.

Jim,

There have been no problems here in Connecticut that I know of.
