    Got it. With this order, the upcoming XD60 for Clara Hale and Flatbush, and the LFS order for Gun Hill and Mike Quill, this will leave the Q70 LaGuardia Link as the only SBS with no new buses, so it will be interesting to see what will happen over there. Also, don't mean to ask, but this is about the bike rack buses on bus routes crossing the Verrazano Narrows Bridge (S53 and S93 LTD out of Castleton Depot). Since there are currently underway replacing the SBS buses with new ones, do you think there will be any plans concerning the current bike rack buses for the foreseeable future (i.e possible replacement with new scheme buses with racks)?

    Wasn't that the same case for Mother Clara Hale Depot (after it reopened), given that their entire standard fleet consists of all hybrids to address the concerns of those living near the depot about pollution?

    How about bus #7442, which got into an accident 2 years ago with a fire truck in Astoria, Queens? Was that bus also written off?

    Okay, as long as those buses can make it over the raised bridge. That's what matters.

    But didn't they raise the roadway on that bridge, and did it affect the performance of those buses?

    First off, I'm very sorry about that comment. I did not mean to cause any harm there. Also, even if they were to go to Kingsbridge, keep in mind that there are currently 88 hybrids over there. Do you expect that all 88 hybrids would be displaced from Kingsbridge, and if so, where to? In addition, why didn't they test them in Staten Island, especially on the S89 over the Bayonne Bridge? For Gods sake they just raised the damn roadway over there.

    Looks like this bus is testing service at another depot in one of its natural habitats (aka Bronx, Queens, Staten Island).

    Oh. So that’s the differences. It’s such a shame that’s they were not included with all the LFS and LFSA buses we have, including the new ones that are on the Manhattan Crosstowns. I would love to see all buses with those windows.

    From the pictures, they look like the same windshield. I also notice that the driver side windows look the same. Where does the difference between the two lie?

    Do all of those buses have the Hi-Visibility windshield? If not, how can you tell the difference between the regular Nova LFS windshield and the Hi-Visibility windshield?

    Obviously. They will not take any diesel buses anytime now, so something has to replace the old hybrids.

    That’s supposed to come in 2019. By that time, we might be replacing the 2005 OG hybrids (6490-6689). We are currently replacing the 2003 hybrids (6365-6489) at Manhattanville and Queens Village. And yes, they may get a piece of that order.

    You’re welcome. Can’t wait to see the fully updated first page for this thread. Will it also discuss plans for the Casey Stengel Depot, which was supposed to be talked about a while ago? Also, You say that the 53 XD60 buses for Bus Company will be enough to cover Woodhaven Blvd SBS service to a point that there will be no loans for the summer, yet they are supposed to get 43 of those buses, slightly more that the buses they are leasing now. How will they operate with 43 buses during the heavy summer season when they currently have to operate 48 buses this summer (8 extra buses to LG)? Sorry for quoting the whole title page. I was concerned about the missing info for the bus fleets, depot plans,, and delivery dates of buses that can mislead viewers of this thread.

    It may be too soon to tell, but since Manhattanville has 62 2003-2004 hybrids that are next to retire, and they won’t accept any diesel buses, it is possible that the new LTS buses will push out the Next Generation hybrids to that depot, replacing the hybrids there. After all, it is the only other non-CNG 40 bus in the Bronx as a whole (other than the 1 RTS still at Eastchester for some odd reason).
