  1. On page 116 of the newly revised 2015-19 MTA Capital Program, item 03 says: * Purchase 275 Hybrid-Electric Standard Buses, with $265.4 million listed under 2017 Perhaps they're planning on ordering 75 Hybrids, with future options? See: http://web.mta.info/capital/pdf/WEB2015-2019Program_reduced.pdf

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    I'm surprised that (so far) none of the XD40 or LFS options are going to Manhattan. Other than XE40 testing on the M42, are there any specifics on new or transferred 40' buses for Manhattan depots?

    That information is on page 16 of the document.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    Why are some folks asking about the XD40 delivery schedule? Look at the first page of this thread: Delivery for the next options are scheduled as follows: 60 buses scheduled to begin delivery/production April-June (XD40) 120 buses between July-September (XD40) 220 buses between October-December (XD40 and LFS) 20 buses between January and February 2017 (LFS) Obviously the schedule has changed since this info was posted. According to the MTA 2015-19 Capital Plan Document (page 182), $397.5 million is supposed to go to "purchase 628 standard diesel buses" in 2016. So, we'll have to wait and see when the purchase is finalized.

    Dante, Please keep up the great posting. It's the only place we can get the latest, on NYC bus orders. Thanks for all of your work, and info.

    Shouldn't the Nova LFS numbers be 8090-8503, which would equal 414 buses ENY's pictures of 7090 are awesome!

    MTA buses in movies

    In Bronx Tale, DeNiro drives a GM old-look at the beginning of the movie. Later on he drives a Fishbowl.

    New Bus Qualification Program Overview

    Happy New Year! Is there any new info (official or unofficial) on which bus is performing better - the XD40 or LFS? It's a shame Orion has left the industry. I think the 3G is a great bus to ride.

    Thanks to everyone at MTS, and those getting this info to us. If MTA buys these buses, no doubt other operators will do the same.B)

    New Flyer XD60 Discussion

    New Flyer can deliver the DE60LFR, a quality bus, in a reasonable amount of time, and the MTA needs new artics. I don't see a problem if this model is discontinued in the next couple of years or so. Parts, etc. will still be available. The only part that's a bit weird is this order is part of the test fleet evaluation. So, the MTA, will be testing a model that may not be available once the evaluation is completed. :confused:
