The New NJ Transit NovaBUS
This is one of the first pages dedicated to the newest member of the NJ Transit Fleet - the 1999 NovaBUS RTS-6. These buses
will replace the 1500-, 1600-, and 2000-series Grumman Flxible 870s. These buses were built in the early 1980's, many of the
soon-to-be former buses were originally part of the MTA-New York City Transit fleet, however were subsequently purchased and
rebuilt by NJ Transit. This is the second batch of RTS buses to be purchased by NJT - the first batch, #2600-2774, were placed
in service between 1995 and 1996.
Many of these details are taken from a flyer handed out at the NJT Board Meeting on June 9, 1999, when #1065 was on display.
