MTA 9404458 viewsMaryland MTA #9404 taking a layover while working route 5 at Mondawmin Station.

The 9400s were a 1994 order but didn't arrive until 1995. 9401-9430 were powered by Cummins M-11 engines and 9431-35 had Detroit Series 60s, a departure from the standard 6V-92 engines equipped on most Flxible Metros ordered by MTA up to that time. They were held in high regard by operators, patrons, and fans alike for their power and performance. They were retired in 2010. Photograph taken September 2, 2008 by Gary Calicchia.

MTA 9526426 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.
