CyRide's list of retired buses are listed below with photos and detailed information. 

Buses numbered from 853 to 979 that were purchased from other transit agencies are assumed to have 700,000 miles on them when they arrived in Ames (except for 949). Starting with Bus 980, the miles are the total lifetime miles.  Bus unit #928 was repurchased from BFLO Transit in December 2001.
