NETransit's been stuck at 48 in-service rebuilds for nearly a month with 4 cars back on the property languishing in testing. Problems uncovered, or manpower shortage at BET for clearing out the test line?. . .they've only gone +4 on the in-service rebuild ranks to 52, all of them returnees that had been kicking around the testing line since earlier in summer. NETransit shows only 1 returned unit, 1713, in-testing right now. Where (and with whom) did this program start grinding to a near-halt in the last few months?
