Any idea on the age of those RTS buses?
The older Gilligs go as far as 93, I believe. RTS has gotten rid of a lot of buses, including some Orions. We get some buses from LYNX as well, but those are mostly used for the UF campus routes. You can tell them apart because LYNX buses are not in the RTS scheme, and sometimes you can read the logos.

Here's an ex-LYNX:

Wow that's a great price. It costs $8 here and may even be discontinued. Students from K-12 get 3 free rides per school day, but the card is actually programmed to work every weekday until the end of school including holidays.
Only with the orange card; doesn't the green card use only get 3 $1.50 bus rides on weekdays excluding holidays?

I think the orange card is for younger students. There's a green card for buses only and a full fare card too.

Sorry about the quality on some of these; the bus was in motion the entire time.
