New Eldorados?

Recommended Posts

And with all of the "customizations" that Pace requested, it is very possible that there will be no bids at all for this contract. (The bidding must run it's course, of course.)

That would not eliminate ENC, because the spec is for a Pulse bus; ENC's questions were essentially whether Pace wanted that. 

Only thing I figured is that the bid might be $100K/bus more than the last time (sort of like the 8624s), but unless there is something to do with the mechanical specifications, ENC has built something similar. Bids are just to determine which bidders are in the competitive range to solicit a Best and Final Offer, so if something is truly impossible it may be addressed at that time.

What's clear is that NF and AD were basically doing a sales job on their specs or else, so they are probably out.

What's happening with couple South Division's Eldorado units (15-519 and 17-535 )? I haven't seen then on the Web in about couple months now.

The Dec. board video said that Pace got $2.3 million out of the VW Diesel settlement for CNG buses. I wonder where Pace needs 4 ir 5 them, though.
