    Oregon paparazzi gets photos of New Flyer Xcelsior CNG bus demo in Eugene

    Lane Transit District was treated to a demonstration ride on a 60 foot articulated bus March 5 at 1 pm. The trip, originating at the central yard at 3500 E. 17th Ave Springfield, OR traveled to the transit mall at 10th and Olive to try the level boarding ramps. The bus sports three entry doors on the right side and two on the left which are used when the bus guideway - such as in Eugene - has buses alternating in both directions on a single exclusive lane in the road median.

    The bus is being moved by Advanced Auto Transport using public CNG stations on a route from Minnesota to San Bernadino. This bus was routed through Eugene in order to provide LTD with a demo ride. It fueled at the Salem State Motorpool prior to arriving. It was scheduled to fuel in Medford that evening and travel over the Siskiyou pass to Chico, Ripon, Bakersfield, and City of San Fernando for fueling on its way to being delivered. 14 buses comprise the order, but just this one went through Oregon.

    Passenger service begins early 2014.
