Nova’s in revenue service and Neoplans being retired

Today is the day the Novabus has begun their inaugural runs in revenue service. The 62′ Novabus artics are to be operated on the Route 48. Also it should be interesting to note, that Midvale again testing 40′ foot Novabuses on the route 23. The last time when testing has occured was back in August.

Also with the Novabuses arriving into service, a batch of Neoplan An460 (fleet ranges from #7101 to #7255) has been retired from revenue service. Over the weekend, SEPTA has moved a dozen Neoplans to Midvale’s scrap yard. The roster has been updated to reflect these changes. After 35 years operating in this region, the Neoplan era in Philadelpha is coming to end.
