First 4 20300s are in Aurora, so quite sure they are small.

Are they at Pace Fox Valley Garage?

Yes FV

If you see it take some pictures if it says Training bus, not in service or To Garage or Metra Station. Or I can see depending if it's on either routes 524, 530, 533, 540, 559, 714, 722, and 802.

Some buses are at south holland and ready to be delivered at Pace Fox valley garage next week or 2 but for next year the 2700s series will be replaced by the new 30Ft Eldorado national axess.

It will debut hopefully in February most likely, I will start Recording at the Aurora Transportation Center and I'll take some pictures and I'll make a tribute to the 2600s Series the Eldorado EZ Rider II.

I just passed a Joliet bus #2755 and it's got paint peeling and rust spots.  So those 20300s are probably going to be moving in quickly on the other locations once Fox Valley is taken care of.

That fleet entered service in September, so he probably meant 20506+

 

Oh I didn't know, it had been a minute since I looked at the South Suburb routes on Webwatch so I didn't realize those were out there.

Now I remember the bus numbers are from #20300-20399- #20506-20570

Some are at the Fox Valley Garage, the rest at South holland and will be delivered by next month on one of the following divisions like at 

Pace Mchenry Garage 

As I mentioned Pace Fox Valley Garage 

MV Transportation Batavia 

First Student Naperville and

Village of Highland Park

As far as 20506 to 29570, sre they CNG or are they diesel?  If diesel,  who knows where they will go.  If CNG, they can only start at South, but could eventually wind ip in Wheeling.   My understanding was that Wheeling was scheduled to open this summer.
