Electric Transit Incorporated (ETI) 9801-9805
 
Production articles started arriving in late 1998 from the facility on Woodley Ave in Dayton. These production buses were different than the demonstrators ... they were 104" wide (vs 96") in order to accommodate a wheelchair getting past the front wheel wells, and they had a wheelchair lift at the front door versus the back door on the demonstrators. Modifications which drastically changed the structural nature of the bus from its legacy as a Skoda 14Tr.

According to Harvey Hylton, 9801, while being the first production bus, was delivered to Dayton, was looked over by the RTA, and was sent back to Hunt Valley in order to support the production line. He says it was the among the last if not the last bus to enter revenue on the RTA.

As of November 2017, 9802, 9803 and 9805 are still on the street. 9801 and 9804 have been disposed of.
