Lynx NABI Articulated 26-610 (pics)

Posted by CJ on Mon Mar 19 08:27:38 2012

Well here are the only articulated buses on our fleet so far. This bus is so big I had to take the pictures in sections, so this was the best I could do.

Middle of 26-610

However I have a few more pictures of this bus where I took whole pictures of it including one interior shot of the bus empty except for myself, the driver, and a lady on board. :)

Does the wrap look as bad in person as it does in a picture?

I thought the wrap looked very nice in personal opinion. The wrap was done since Lynx supports SunRail, which will open in 2014. http://sunrail.com/default.asp

As a matter of fact the last three pictures I took of the bus was when the bus was at the groundbreaking for SunRail. It was used to basically say that buses will be the key to SunRail's success. I just can't wait to see what paint scheme Lynx will use on it's NovaBus artics when they get them sometime this year.

They finally get them. Nice.
Funny it's a fake train too.

There are going to be bigger things to come from Lynx soon.

I thought it was strange myself. Not until I figured out what 26-610 really meant. The 610 part is really interesting. 6=60 feet and 10= 2010.

Couple months ago NovaBus Articulated came to HART Operations Facility so the HART workers and manganments can check out the bus. I heard it cost 1 million to build one bus. Starting next spring 2013 MetroRapid will run from MTC in Downtown Tampa to Telecom Park in Temple Terrace.

Thanks for the info about that. Yeah it does cost a million per bus. We only bought two of them from NABI but getting four from NovaBus will makes things even more interesting.

These NABI artics are not bad buses. They handle pretty good from a passenger's point of view that is. However a majority of drivers don't like them and they are in the shop more then any other bus in the entire fleet.

Yeah, I know you're in Oradell. I'm just saying could you imagine if that happened. Ya don't have to bite my head off for thinking outside the box.

I'm not :) Transit doesn't have good luck with artics. The NABI artics remind me of a 50's movie creature, no matter how they are painted or wrapped

Well we are getting NovaBus artics, so it might be a change over the NABIs Lynx has.

They do look nice, the Nova articulated buses. 112 people total, 62 seated. That might work on the 13 and the 158.

When these buses arrive they are putting them on the Link 4, 17, and 50 routes since those routes experience more crush loads then any other route in the system.
