    To sum up any questions regarding these buses. As of right now, this is the current allotment:

    -25 to LGA 

    -15 to JFK

    -13 to BP

    The current SBS units at MTAB will go back to NYCTA, with a handful remaining for use on the Q70 when the line gets converted to artic in the near future. Buses will receive SBS colors in due time. 

     

     

    I stand corrected. The assignments have been changed. BP has been eliminated from this order, and it will be split between LGA and JFK with LGA getting 28 buses and JFK getting 25.

    Is Baisley Park on a shortage from what they already have?

    This is to implement partial artic conversion on the Q64.

    Reading is fundamental.

    Wait let me get this straight, the 6209s are not going to be SBS? So I guess we will see them on the Q39? Smh.

    They're not in SBS livery like 6234 probably so they're available for the Q10 and Q70 as well as the Q52/53.

    the assumption is that the Bus Co. artics will remain in local wrap because between JFK/Far Rock, LaGuardia & Baisley Park depots, there are only 2 sbs lines (52/53) and it'd be kinda pointless to have any of the artics dedicated to solely sbs service when it'd be significantly easier to mileage swap buses between said depots for all their artic lines (Q10/52/53/111/113/114 or any other line they choose to use them on, like the Q70 or Q7, etc) seeing as (or assuming that) these units will not be transferred/swapped with NYCTA/MaBSTOA units

    Right now those 2 buses are registered to Quill. 

    For those keeping score. Yukon NG’s left for pending transfer to mainland: 4251, 4265, 4272, 4276, 4012, 4674. 

    At least 2 of those most likely will stay. Yukon is a 7 day training depot and the NG is the standard training bus. They have to have at least 2 for that purpose.

    6138 wasn’t tracking. However, it was in Manhattan earlier this week. Plus MCH hasn’t received delivery as they are still training with 6128. Also, it was confirmed that 6138 did leave for Manhattan. It’s now back in Brooklyn.

    Disregard this.... they will have an ceremony at Quill depot (doubt the public would be allowed to attend) then TWO RTS buses will run in service from Midtown to 2 Broadway and put on display until 1:30PM, no time was given for the start time of the M55 runs, credit goes to buschat.

     

     

    At this point I would just wait at 2 Broadway between noon and 1:30PM for these buses to show up there lol.

    So to be clear, a Quill ceremony in the morning, followed by two RTS to 2 Broadway for display on Monday until 1:30PM?

     

    Won't be two RTSs. Just one.

    I won’t be able to make it to the final ride of the RTS bus on the M55 since I have other commitments that are overlapping (college classes). However I will try to make it to 2 Broadway to see them as well.

     

    FYI, will it be parked along Whitehall Street in front of the Bowling Green station or will it be nearer to the Whitehall Street station by Stone Street? I would like some clarification on where the bus would be parked for the event on Monday.

    Could always go out and find out like the rest of us.
