In the time that I have worked at the Port Authority, I have yet to drive any of these coaches in service. I guess the reason is that they are at every garage other than where I have been! These buses are the most difficult to photograph due to the fact that they are 60' long! The brand new 2011 New Flyers can be found by clicking the link.
Anyhow, lets look at some pictures...
