Yeah, actually at around 1:30? That bus was spotting "NY Bus Roadeo" with the blue stripe in the front stuck in heavy traffic on 10th Av...right under the MCIs bouncing above that ramp heading towards the Lincoln Tunnel.

8663 is currently doing a run on the M100 so I'm guessing that one went to KB instead

Well, yes and no with a "but". I'm still seeing it registered at QV but it is for sure doing a regular M100 run so either it's a loaner or it just hasn't been transferred yet.

It looks like even though it's registered to QV, it went directly from the vendor to KB, completely bypassing QV so it could very well become a KB bus.

8663 Officially a KB bus.  Looks like QV allotment stops at 8662.

No it did not.

8663 is not yet official at KB. It's still assigned and registered at QV, but it's in service at KB.

Lest we forget that a few 8500s were transferred from QV to KB after delivery. This could be the same case but in reverse. KB might be short on buses as well.

Copy that.  You may be correct on this one. Will 8663 return back to QV soon? So KB allotment begins at 8671 (for round 2 of delivery)
