Why do bus numbers keep going up when new buses are purchased? Why not just keep the same numbers as the old buses? There is no way Shen has upwards of 700 buses. What will happen once the number reaches 1000?

A. Bus numbers are associated with a specific bus relative to its maintenance record. Bus numbers can’t be recycled, otherwise they will cause conflict with maintenance records and corrupt our database. Bus numbers will continue to go up for quite sometime to come. And, you are correct, we don’t have 700 plus buses. We currently have 214 buses of various sizes.
