    Next Gen Busses

    The new busses are just more Gilligs, they are the proven workhorse used by many municipalities. And are identical to the Gilligs we are currently running in every way. However they do come equipped with new equipment for dispatching. Disney is in the process of bringing in a new system that...

    Next Gen Busses

    Not hardly, we currently have 380 busses. Some are Gilligs and some are Nova's. The plan is to eliminate a little more than half the Nova's as they are the oldest in the fleet. So that would be about 40 Nova's being retired. There are 76 new Gilligs coming in, after all is said and done that...

    Next Gen Busses

    It is not made on property, they have a vendor that picks up the used oil, processes it into bio then blends it with regular diesel. When we get it it's ready to use.

    Next Gen Busses

    It's going to be a little bit of both. They are planning to retire approximately 40 nova busses they are the oldest of the fleet starting with #4815 that has the 2 hidden Mickey's on the back. And with that the total fleet count will still increase, as the current fleet size is at 390 . The...

    Next Gen Busses

    They tried a battery powered bus a few years back, it failed. It could not keep up with the demand of even a few hours.

    Disney Backgrounds

    Bizarre situation, that's a first for me. I would try calling casting and see if you can get some answers, they process all onboarding. If that doesn't get you anywhere, I hate to say this but you may have to go to Traditions and see what happens, if you are not on the roster state your...

    If you got a Traditions appointment you got the job. They would not schedule you for Traditions unless you were onboarding. Congratulations!!!
