There are at least 4 Gillig Advantage 30-ft buses (121-124); I saw 124 on a training run on Concord Pike, but I think they're used in the Dover area.

There are also the 600-series Champion 30-ft buses, which frankly aren't worthy of mention.

Ah 30ft Gillig Advantages? Hey, I guess that means its time for a trip to Dover, but what do they generally run down there?

The Phantoms are 1996 models?! I could've sworn they were '93 or '94, but ah well. Don't forget about the 30ft Phantoms as well - for some reason I think they could be somewhat newer than some fo the 40fters, but who knows?

The Champions are worth mention - at least they made it on one of DART's Newsletters to the public as a part of the "stuff the bus" campaign if I am not mistaken. I wish I could see some in Wilmington, but I guess I'd have to go down to Reheboth Beach during the summer (however, how would one get down there by public transportation?).

I'm not sure of the number series, but I know that there are some 30' NABIs in the southern portion of the state. I asked my friend Ren (he works for DART) about them, and he said they were NABIs. I thought that they were Gilligs, but they are not. They are NABIs. They have double and single-digit numbers too.

Incorrect, NABI has never made buses that were 30 footers that have a similar design to the ones we know and ride.

isnt a bus less than 30 feet rather short?

We got the helldorados and the Champion Milktrucks, and they're 30 foot vehicles.
