NOPSI 292B422 viewsOn April 21, 1983, NOPSI 292B collided with an oncoming vehicle which was in the wrong lane, and sickeningly smashed into a large oak tree at the intersection of Gentilly Boulevard and Iris Street, injuring 25 passengers and its driver.

NOPSI 282388 viewsThursday, February 12, 1970---a tragic, traumatic night during Carnivaltime '70 as 24 year-old NOPSI operator Joseph Washington, working on the Tchoupitoulas line that evening, ignobly became the victim of his own bus! While traveling outbound, Washington was ejected from NOPSI 282 in a collison with an automobile @ Jackson and Annunciation, thrown under a back wheel, and dragged to his death and crushed as his driverless bus careened forward, bounced over the Jackson Avenue neutral ground and slammed into a building across the street.

2 of his passengers survived, however, albeit one with slight injuries. Not exactly the WORST way to go, but horrible nonetheless!

MTA 9526435 viewsThe 9500s were the last order of Flxibles delivered to MTA, and among the last orders to roll out of the Flx Corporation. The 9500 series is also notable for two other distinctions: the series was comprised two distinct vehicle types (9501 - 9510 were Nabi/Ikarus while 9521 - 9539 were Flx); and 9511 - 9520 never existed.

9526 was selected as MTA's first official historic bus, and was both restored and repainted to its original livery in 2010. Photograph taken October 9, 2010 by Gary Calicchia.
