More New Buses are Coming to County Connection

Posted on January 10, 2016 at 12:30 PM

County Connection's good 'ol 500 fleet has been used for over a decade on CC's express routes (mainly used on the 96X and 97X, but you can see one substituting for other express lines). And nothing lasts forever.

33 brand-new 40-ft. Gillig Hybrid-Electric buses are coming to County Connection's fleet over the next few weeks, and will slowly replace the old 500 series and the 200 series, which operates on some local routes. Similar to the 500's, this new fleet still keeps the unique "Bishop Ranch" livery.

For the soon-to-be retired 500 fleet, each bus has traveled over 400,000 miles in stop-and-go traffic. Sometimes it's sad to say goodbye, but high-floor buses are a thing of the past nowadays. For more information, visit
