Kenosha Area Transit Fleet

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if Kenosha still rosters anything other than Gillig LFs? I know they have a history of purchasing interesting secondhand stuff from several transit agencies, including nearby Milwaukee. The most up-to-date roster I can find is Wikipedia's, which says they have former 1995/1997 D40LFs (five are active) bought off Milwaukee and Oshkosh, but it hasn't been updated since 2016. Are these still in service or has Kenosha completely gone Gillig?

 

Also, some interesting stuff from their past fleet includes former Waueksha Gillig Phantoms, Chemung County Nova LFSs, and Oshkosh Flxibles.

Usually, CPTDB Wiki is the most update about these things

That's where I've been checking, and both the Active and Retired lists say "as of 2016". I was wondering if anyone here had a more recent list or is in the Kenosha region often enough to know the roster.

Ah, gotcha. At the very least, what I'd offer is that probably neither of those flyers are still in service, being 24 and 22 years old. The novas here are the oldest buses I can think of that are still operating in a system outside of NYC and the oldest of them is 19?

Went up to Kenosha yesterday. Most buses out were of a new 4051-4056 batch of Gillig 40' low floors (all seen in service). I assume theses are from 2018 and have replaced the New Flyers.

I have found an Assett Management Report dated Sep 2018 for Kenosha Area Transit. The fleet at that time was:

2439                Dupont Trolley (1998)

3012-3019        Gillig Low Floor (2004)  29'

3369                Dupont Trolley (1999)

3415                Hometown Trolley (2010)

3501-3513       Gillig Low Floor (2004/5)  35'

3524-3528       Gillig Low Floor (2010)  35'

4004                New Flyer D40LF (2001) ex MCTS 4439 (2016)

4005-4008       New Flyer D40LF (2000) ex Madison Metro 834/3/45/35 (2016)

4009-4012       New Flyer D40LF (2002/2) ex MCTS 4447, 4617/9/33 (2016 or 2017?)

4023-4026       Gillig Low Floor (2009) 40'

4027, 4032, 4034  New Flyer D40LF (1995/7) ex MCTS 4019, 4120/5 (2011)

4041-4043       Gillig Low Floor (2012) 40'

4044-4050       Gillig Low Floor (2013) 40'

4070-4072       New Flyer D40LF (2000/2) ex Madison Metro 844/6/8 (2017)

In addition 6 buses were on order for delivery in 2019 and 4 for 2020.

4051-4056  Gillig Low Floor (2019) 40' must be the 2019 deliveries. Do not know what they replaced.

The New Flyers that are still owned are probably used on the school trippers and not on regular services.

Yeah, the 4051-4056 were probably the D40LF replacements. Thanks for the info!
