King County Metro, Seattle - 214 buses (currently in production)

Mississauga Transit/MiWay (15 buses)
Des Moines (11 buses)
University of Georgia (12 buses)

King County's 2012 order is only for 30 buses. I don't have anything recent to go off so its possible there might be a few orders that were awarded recently before the announcement.

Can you break down the 74 for MTA bus?

Thanks, was unaware of that.

My thought is if the company is outta business, how do they get specialized spare parts?

The parts business will stay in operation because aftermarket parts make money. If Daimler isn't interested in running it themselves, they will find a ready buyer. When Flxible went under, MCI bought the parts business from them for all those Metros still in service back then.

Aftermarket parts are the most profitable part of the business for most manufacturers.

King County's 2012 order is only for 30 buses.

How does that fit in to the current delivery? I've read from several Internet sources that King County is getting up to #7306 - is the 30 buses part of that? I did see #7174 on the Thruway headed west a few weeks ago.
