I wish he would add a "last updated" line at the top so I can know if there's something new rather then having to scrutinize the entire thing.

I know! I had the verizon one open in another tab and switched back and forth quickly to try to see which text changed.

God bless the kind sir who maintains that page. Who is this masked hero? I fear we will never know! :(

010 and 011 are both running now, but both are on south side. Ugh, one of you come up north!

sery2831: Thanks for that information-I recall that MBTA vehicle information was listed in BSRA's "ROLLSIGN" in the past...
I will second that thought about dating the main page and updates...

Thanks for keeping this updated, ye Maintainers of the List. The vehicle inventory and route history pages are incredibly useful to me as a Wikipedia editor.

I hate that it's all we have because if someone not familar with the accuracy of the site stumbles across us using it as a source, we're screwed.

Not really a worry now, though. NETransit always had a good reputation and this new site seems to carry that on, and the route changes PDF has a brief description of the sources. Reliable sources and self-published sources are always a judgement call; for non-controversial information like this, these documents are just fine and not likely to be challenged.

Was working a few days ago. Might just be a temporary outage.
