7xxx RTS Buses

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember the 7xxx RTS series? Were those recycled 1xxx RTS's? And, are those buses still running? (MTA)


I remember thoes days. They were some of the 1st RTS's I remember when I was growing up. 7000-7049, 7500-7559 were originally 1981, and 1982 models that were repowered in 1996, and retired in 2005. Yes they were originally 1XXX series buses. Specifically they picked and chose from buses in this number range: 1202-1858. 1201 is stored at Jackie Gleason as a Museum bus. All the rest have been retired. Last I knew, 7000-7008, 7010-7032, 7034-7049, 7500, 7508, and 7511-7559 were at the Nimco Scrap Yard, and all the ones inbetween had been sold. B)
