Posted by gold_12th on Mon Jan 1 13:54:42 2018

Suffolk Transit in NY is auctioning off a couple high mileage Orion VII buses, very unusual for a transit agency to do.

Was 1014 part of Jitney group that serviced the east end - Hamptons/Montauk? or was it used on S92 Suffolk Transit?

I was under the impression that with federal funding the requirement was to use the vehicle for 12 years or 500K miles???

According to the listing, both buses have more than 500,000 miles racked up, so they are compliant.

What part is unusual?

Suffolk has always Auctioned off all their old buses and vehicles. What is unusual is that they are using Copart.com.

S92 must be a high mileage service, not stop and go every quarter mile.

BUT:
Sunrise Coach has 2 Fishbowls (with rear, custom retrofitted freight compartments) from around 1960 that ran for about 21-22 years. They used 2 buses to cover 4 round trips a day between Greenport and EH..

Can never beat them for durability.
