Re: Valley Metro - Should RPTA and Tempe divisions consolidate?

Well, the strike is over. Lets see what happens.

What will also be interesting is future bus orders. Tempe is already replacing most of their NABI XX-LFW fleet with new C40LFRs and DE60LFRs. RPTA, on the other hand, is still looking for a replacement for the Nova LFS fleet.

It seems that in the past year, Gillig has been winning a lot of orders, as many TAs are resorting to simply awarding contracts to the lowest bidder, rather than going with the most compliant bidder. An RPTA order would be a big win for Gillig. Interestingly, most Arizona TAs outside of the Phoenix area are loyal Gillig customers, including Sun Tran in Tucson and Mountain Line in Flagstaff.
