2002 Neoplan AN-460
5301-5321

Rehab number list:
 
  • 60-foot articulated buses.
  • WMATA's one and only Neoplan order.
  • Detroit Diesel series 60 engine with Allison B500R transmission.
  • These buses are the last high-floor buses ordered by WMATA.
  • These buses have spent the majority of their lives on the route 70 and former route 71. They also ran often on routes 52, 53, 54, S1, S2, and S4.
  • Only five of these buses have been rehabbed (5301, 5306, 5309, 5320, and 5321). Because Neoplan is out of business and new bus parts are scarce, the remaining buses have been only repainted, not fully rehabbed.
  • In 2015, most of their replacements have arrived, retiring most of these buses. The replacements are 2015 New Flyer XDE60s numbered 5460-5480. As of 2016, some of these Neoplans remain in service but will retire later this year.
