For the first time in Omnitrans history, a coach has racked up 1,000,000 service miles! In September, Omnitrans coach #0108, a 2001 New Flyer C40LF, reached this unheard of milestone after years in our bus fleet.
Coach #0108 has reliably served San Bernardino Valley residents over the years, having been repowered at midlife with a new John Deere engine. “We have never had any bus with this much longevity,” said Maintenance Manager Omar Bryant. “Having a bus safely operate and remain in good condition for over a million miles is a testament to the good work of the maintenance team and their dedication to keeping buses running properly and well-maintained.”
Needless to say, #0108 has had a great, long-lasting run! It will be retired later this fall when 23 new buses join our fleet.
