The DL3 is a good choice it's nothing fancy just a good solid work horse of the American highways no chassis computers and no CAN wiring to deal with the D is the best selling bus of all time it's been around since 1992 and still going.Mine has the tag that steers I love it but when the tag does needs parts it can be pricey from MCI

MQBUS, the maintenance records should be public records, make  a public records request and pay for the cost for copying or if digital the cost of a CD, HTH

Wow Niles, that's a great idea.

In fact, it's on their website:

https://www.ridemetro.org/Pages/Texas-Public-Information-Act.aspx

I'll pursue that and see what I can make of it. Thanks!

There is a troubling trend underway in some parts...

Public agencies selling assets direct to scrap, due to liability concerns.

Maintenance records are another avenue for lawyers to mount lawsuits over the condition of the asset.

"As is, where is" isn't bullet proof anymore...

Government entities don't care about the pittance of monied recovered. They don't want the distraction of a lawsuit.

Locally, the big scrapyard issues certificates of destruction, doesn't let anyone near 'em, can't even get a tail light off anything... that's the agreement with the municipality, and that's that.

Drinking buddies of the owner can't even get anywhere...

Happy coaching!

R/B is Ritchie Brothers - rbauction.com  They've got a 1980 Prevost in Montreal but I can't see the 1999 he is referring to on their website.
