400 Series being sold to the MTA?

This is good move by the MTA. Bee line's 400s are probaly in better shape than are 6xxx Orions lol. I'm glad they are getting the four VIIs they have. I've ridden it and its much better than those NYCT/MTA Bus POS VII OG/NGs. I hope SC gets those four VIIs, however they might have to be reseated because those low floor portion of the bus has 2X2 seating. However I'm gonna miss riding those VIIs on bee line routes though.

I agree with you....as much I like our V's some (well most) of them are really bad condition!

gonna miss the 400s loved the pull strings for the stop request.but on the other hand when i had those in the summer.i wouldnt be able to have the A/C on for long because then it would overheat.and cause problems but all the 400s were not like that.only a select few.still gonna miss them.:cool:

Agreed, this is a very good deal especially with the MTA facing a financial crisis. This'll speed up the retirement of those older O5's and RTS's. I hope the majority of these buses goes to Far Rockaway and JFK.

 

Another thread on this site says that's exactly where they're going.
