  1. That rumor comes from this site. Let's not get NYCT involved in this.
  2. IJS, even if the "other" hybrids, 3800-3959, are assigned there for service, which would be quite odd. But DOB does do odd things!
  3. Too many contributors to this site get confused that Grand Ave. has both a depot and base shop where heavy/rehab work is done. As a guy who lives close to Grand Ave., I see buses from many depots traveling to and from the facility. So please, if a given bus is "going to Grand Ave.", it does not necessarily mean it's there for use on a Grand Ave. assigned route.
  4. No deadline. As long as it takes for the cars to be road worthy.
  5. Disagree. LGA quality of maintenance has grown by leaps and bounds. How do you expect them to properly maintain hand me down worn out buses from MHV depot that ran in Manhattan all their lives that should have never been transferred in the first place? They should have been scrapped. Same for the junk that NYCT transferred from FP. Those were worn out too and some have already been scrapped. If it weren't for politics and news media interference, the best of the 1999 RTS' would have been retained for LGA and JFK instead of worn out high mileage hybrids from NYCT which also had to do bustitutions most weekends.
  6. The 9000 series (9510 and up) will be used for the next batch of hybrids.
  7. Rejected? Maybe they returned it to sender because of defects NYCT discovered?
  8. Sometimes a newly manufactured bus has "issues" that has to be repaired at the vendor/manufacturer.
  9. As well as one or two 4700 series artics. Mostly 40'ers running. Why? Because of bed bug extermination on the 4700 series artics at Casey Stengel.
  10. "Consistently"? I post here quite inconsistently. There are guys who post at least 10 times a day here! There is a difference between number blocks being saved and the actual registration with DMV. The buses are registered with DMV when they arrive here. Sorry I bruised your ego. Man up!
  11. You thought wrong. A numerical block was saved for these. Nobody ever said they were here.
