So the Wiki seems to state some old old equipment being operated. But I am doubting that they are really actually running equipment from the 1980's.

Has anyone been out there in the past few years? What equipment is being operated out there? Is it worth the one hour drive off the I5?

Thanks!

The fleet on their wiki may not have been updated. Doing some Google searching, I have found a fleet list here: http://www.lsccs.com...t/final/Ch5.pdf

According to that list (updated 2007), the oldest coaches still operating are 1988 Gillig Phantoms.

Those gillig phantoms are still operating. No, it's not worth the drive out there in my opinion.

Grays Harbor Transit also has a route into Olympia that stops at the Greyhound station there. I believe they always run low-floor Gilligs on that line. Additionally, Mason Transit comes into the Olympia Transit Center -- they are using Phantoms the last I've seen.

I think all their old gilligs are now retired. Last buses i've seen in service out there are relativly new 30ft phantoms, 40ft D40LFs and Gillig Advantage LFs. I have some photos here: http://www.flickr.co...57629810738676/
