Thanks for posting the photos! I wonder why they advertise wifi so much on the buses, that almost seems silly to put that many decals on the bus. Is that the only bus in their fleet with wifi or do they have more?

Also, it's sad to see the paint chipping already on that IC FE. I can't imagine what some of our current buses will look like when they start to age.

That was the only bus they had with WiFi. Their fleet only consists of about 6 buses. I was shocked to see the paint chipping as well, but perhaps its because they park partially in a tree?? None of our IC's have that issue.

I've seen a few IC's like that locally but not many. You could very well be right.

In other news... I really need to get SBW back up and running, lots of great KY bus pics to share when I do!

Taxpayers would riot here if they saw WiFi stickers on buses.

Cool! You should have got photos.

BB has more marketshare in KY than previous years but I still feel like they are a minority. I looked over the state inventory and I don't think anyone ordered any new BB transits either.

It's an interesting idea, but how many kids do you think would actually use it for school work or something? Or is it on this bus to give the kids entertainment because it's possibly a long route? Whatever the reason is that possessed them to it is something I can't think of.

I also have a question. Does anyone know if it's against the law to have the cross arm removed from a bus in Kentucky? There's a bus at my school, it's a 2011, that has had it's cross arm removed and I was curious has to if it's allowed or not.

Was it an IC? With our newest ICs, their crossing guards are already sagging low when deployed. Maybe they couldnt fix it?

It's an IC, but when I saw it last, there was no sagging to it.

If anyone who lives in a county that has a 2009-10 IC FE, that could get some interior pics for me, ones that show off the seat and the driver's area, could you please do so? Ineed it for making a bus in a 3D software. I would love to do it myself, but the only FEs around me are from the 90s.
