  1. Pace Roster

    2727 is assigned to MV Transportation Batavia. It runs with 2728-2735 along routes 674, 709, 711, & 715. It's on 715 now.
  2. New Eldorados?

    Well, it looks like we finally have our answer. At least a portion of the next batch of 6700s appear to be heading there, replacing the 6600s at the bare minimum. Time will tell if the 40 foot Nabis will be gone later on, but Busjack's theory appears to be correct: 35 footers are not part of Pace's future plans. Side note: Route 272 has seen a lot of North buses lately (3 of them up there now and only 1 NW bus, which is #2778). I wonder if this route is being prepped for North to take over now that 6700s are heading there. Also, this now eliminates speculation of older 2600s heading up to North, whether feeders get new buses or not. They will hit 12 years old this year so it'll be interesting to see what happens to them and what replaces them in the next year or two.
  3. New Eldorados?

    Neither of these buses were on Webwatch yesterday, but #6258 was on the 626. So this should finish the Nabis off once and for all.

    If 6700s make their way to West, they'll be gone. Looks like Pace has slowed down putting new buses in service, probably because of the cold and snow.

    And given that #6258 and #6263 are not on any NS routes at the moment, they might be transitioning up there too. Those two should be the last Nabis remaining.
  6. What's Left for Pace's Orion VI's 6000s?

    If any are out at this stage, it'd be during rush hour. Route #301 would tell a lot, that route is a catalyst for Orions, had been for years (formerly 747).
  7. New Eldorados?

    If any of them go to North, that would be a surprise. We all know Pace is trying to gut all of the Nabis in their fleet across the board, but that would tell me that they aren't waiting around for any movement of the 2600s anywhere to send to N next year. Pace could be gunning for the blue Nabis next year too as they will hit the 12 year mark and some of them are looking tired at West. By this time next year, I'd be willing to bet the entire Pace fleet is El Dorado, like them or not.
  8. What's Left for Pace's Orion VI's 6000s?

    The Orions won't go away! There are still 4 of them out at West as of this morning: 6044, 6069, 6132, and 6156.
  9. Pace Bus Moves

    Well #6258 is still out at NS too, out this morning.
  10. Pace Bus Moves

    And that's the only one that's out today too. Wonder why this bus is still hanging around?
  11. Pace Roster

    That's a North bus so it's gotta be.
  12. Pace Bus Moves

    If I'm not mistaken, #6232 and #6241-#6242 were formerly at West while the remaining ones were Joliet buses. I'm sure all of these buses logged a bunch of miles on them now so I wouldn't be shocked if they were retired, but they could also pop up at North too at some point if they still have life in them. I don't see any of these buses going back to West.
  13. Pace Bus Moves

    Probably because of warranty work for the CNGs, they had to keep spares around until they were all done. The 6600s at South are no longer running either from what I can tell and what Busjack alluded to earlier so they're probably gone too.
  14. Pace Bus Moves

    This is all about flushing the bad #6600s. NS still has a few 6250s to get rid of so they could end up there too. I didn't realize how many 6600s are still at North until I looked yesterday at the afternoon rush, it is still pretty loaded.
  15. Pace Bus Moves

    You know, a thought has occurred to me: What about the 30 foot Eldos #2651-2659 and #2704-2706? Could they be on the move once more #6700s come in? Or is it likely that they stay put?
