So more than 1/3 of Gleason’s buses have been delivered, however, the B35 isn’t yet. So it’s in the Bronx.

Gleason has some clearance issues. Although they have 3 buses. The rest coming in December. The 1030’s and some 1040’s are in New York City.

That’s why. If not, then Gleason would be on it. But time has its patience

We gotta give it time. Plus most of West Farms 76xx, 77xx and 78xx buses aren’t in the chop shop. As deliveries come in some will hit the chop shop.

It's not about Gleason being on it because they are. The schedule has ALWAYS been Winter Pick for B35 articulation with a possibility of a soft launch happening in the fall. The depot will not be completely artic ready until December, and we have discussed this several times actually. It has also been posted on the first page of the Fleet & Depots thread for at least 8 months now. 

When everything is ready, Gleason will be sending XN40's and possibly a few C40LF's to WF, and they will in turn send over the XN60's. The assignment may change a bit.

Many had also been asking what was up with ENY. The schedule has always been Summer Pick 2020 for artic conversion. Reconstruction of the depot does not even begin until January 2019. Right now engineering is in the final design stage for the new layout and rehab of the depot.

3733 pending transfer back to LG but still at CP.

Also note the first page title post of Fleet and Depots has received a major update from top to bottom with more coming soon. Please review it thoroughly as many questions being asked can be found there. Things have changed, so please take note. We will discuss things further in that thread.

Included in the update is the pending award schedule for all upcoming bus orders as well.

Roster Updated as of 11:06 AM on 8/12/18

(Please note, there are far fewer buses in service than you think, I know some of you use that "site", but it's not reporting everything accurately. Here is the most accurate fleet information right now, especially about the D60HFs left in service)

I wonder if any routes out of East New York will be moved to other depots while the depot gets underway for reconstruction for articulated conversion.

See Jackie Gleason if you wanna know what routes are moving out——which is nil
