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?

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/

The route 40 rolled into Olympia on Saturday afternoon 5/23, operated by former Intercity Transit 904.  It has GHT initials by the number on the upper right front.  Most of the paint on the back half of the coach is original IT.

I have seen several of their older gilligs (1990s) plus a couple of newer 2002-ish ones at Ehli Auctions in Tacoma Recently, I wonder if this is how they were replacing them until another order comes in. IT's roster shows most of that fleet retired now.

IT's 901 - 912 series coaches were replaced about a year ago by more Low Floor HEVs, 420 - 429.

I went to Grays Harbor yesterday.  GHT has 901, 903 - 907, 909 and 910.  There may be more.  Most of them had the back half painted red, white and green with the sides of the front half intact.  All had the front numbers to the right of the destination sign replaced with GHT lettering.  It appears that all the Phantoms are gone.

Are these Low Floor HEV`s built by Gillig?  I must be missing something as I do not see them on the Wiki or mention of their type in this thread.

GHT has Former Intercity Transit 1998 Gillig LFs of the same #s. The IT gillig LFs were some of the first of that model in service only preceded by some in service for Hertz at LAX.
