5545 is also at GH if not already mentioned. These assignments for the Xcelsiors are driving me bonkers; I'm surprised that more haven't been temporarily assigned to West Farms to push out the Orion 7s CNGs. The RTS retirements can be put on the back burner as diesel tanks don't expire, but CNG tanks do as they're pressurized.

Sheesh they have to retire the whole bus instead of replacing the tank?

Replacing the CNG Tanks is a very expensive process per bus. It makes much more economical sense to order new buses at a cheaper price.

WF's 5557 and 5593 have been renumbered to 130 and 132. I have no idea which is which. Furthermore 5573 looks like it has been recently transferred to WF from GH, but it may already be scrapped...

Don’t forget 7567 to Ulmer Park. 

That's not at Ulmer Park.

7563 up to 7571 are at the vendor along with 7592.

Huh ? LOL there most be a double or fleet view providing wrong location.. I can guaranty I saw it at GA CMF within the pass 8hrs and past your post time.. I know its assigned to Quill .

I’m not saying you were wrong at all at your time of post. There is a possibility that the GPS was at MQ and the bus was at GA. Even at my time of posting it is still a possibility. When I go back through the yard roster it’s not on GA’s or MQ’s for the 7th. Only assigned to MQ. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Thank You for the correction @Cait Sith  Just only following an earlier post. Didn’t know bus was still at vendor.

A friend of mine (a non fanner for the record) said they saw "a new blue bus" which they said was 7567 on the F shuttle last weekend.

It's possible that maybe they saw 7561 instead.
