Re: returning to service
- When will this return to service? I really need to photograph this
one before it leaves...
Anyone know why it's returning to service? Any confirmation for what
route it'll be on?

(Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation) between
March and April of 1993, and part of the same order as coach #9306
pictured above. It was built by TMC (Transportation Manufacturing
Corporation), not long before NovaBUS (the builder of the DDOT
#3200-series) acquired the rights to build the RTS in 1994.

last few years as the Dream Cruiser traveling Woodward during the
dream cruise. This is the last RTS SMART has. The bus is in the paint
shop being repainted into standard Smart colors from the custom Dream
Cruise colors and logos. Supposedly the bus will be used on route 851
park and ride.
