Franklin County Transit Authority in Greenfield sells off some buses
Want to buy a mini-bus? Or two? The Franklin Regional Transit Authority is selling off a dozen used vehicles, ranging from a car to 10-seat and 18-seat buses, with mileage up to 172,000.
The used vehicles have already been replaced, said FRTA Administrator Tina Cote. The transit authority periodically rotates vehicles in its fleet of nearly 50 buses, she added, and last did so about three or four years ago. That was about the same time it last unloaded several vehicles, scrapping those that weren’t in good shape, offering some others to various other departments or the Northfield Dive Team.
The minimum bid on the vehicles sold in “as is” condition, is $500, she said.
Sealed bids, which must be made on official forms provided by the authority and accompanied by a certified check, will be opened by FRTA on Jan. 18.
