  2. They're finally giving the these workhorses some love and attention, here is 1222 fresh out the booth and there is many more in the process right now. Even though 1231 had been done for a while, there was no other 1200s in the program for a while until now. 1204 (My favorite 1200), 1207-1208, 1210-1213 from Kingsbridge; 1218, 1223 from Gun Hill; and 1247, 1264, 1271, 1278, 1288 from Hale are all in various stages of the upgrade program. So, If my EDUCATED GUESS is correct, it looks like the 1200s are fully coming out of the +selectbusservice program with the new Nova LFS Smart Bus Artics coming in. So it looks like the SBS Novas displaced to other depots by the new ones at Quill will allow the 1200s to be placed into the local circuit which would allow for D60HFs to be retired.

  7. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Actually those buses were at OH and was moved back to Quill, it wasn't a false move. They were there for about 3 days. The OP was late reporting it here.

  9. 7483

    7120 crashed during delivery somewhere around Chicago and was later delivered as another unit built. This is the original 7120.
  10. 7483

    While this bus is "new" to the property, it is not a NEW bus. This is a August 2015 built New Flyer XD40, built to the specifications of our XD40 units numbered 7110-7139. This bus was a floating demonstrator for New Flyer but is now our bus officially. This bus is NOT part of the new 367 XD40 order. That order will start at 7484 and run to 7850. Enjoy!

    0016 is in fact 0021. A pre-production demo to get the depot ready for 0016-0020.
  12. No USB ports anywhere on the bus.
