From looking at the available products for NABI the NABI 416 is now discontinued. So does this mean NJTs NABI delivery is complete? And if so it appears they are stuck with low floor next time they get new buses. Unless they decide to purchase MCIs to replace the NABIs when the time comes as early as 2021.

Yep, NJ Transit should have received one of final NABI 416 from its order.

Hold on, though NABI elects to leave the Standard Floor Bus market, perhaps Eldorado National could fill in the void. Eldorado has offered its new standard floor bus product, the Eldorado Arrivo.

I dont know if that would be a heavy duty transit model or not. I know NJT would properly prefer units with the slide glide entry door. Maybe the front Wheel chair lift. But other then that I dont know how NJT will handle the discontinuing of heavy duty transit high floors. But it wouldnt surprise me if they switched to low floor for future purchases. I know Rabbit Transit even gets Low Floors now that the Gillig Phantom is discontinued. And they purchased high floors until 2006 while 99% of TAs purchased low floor.
