I’d expect the 3Gs to stay on Staten Island as they’re straight diesel, and one would have to maintain parts at only one garage. However, as an orphan fleet, I can’t see them making it beyond 2025 or so.

So Is 7061 Or Orion Vii 3G'S going to Leave the island?

For now, no. And I very much doubt they will.

 

6161 might be heading to Hale....it came off of the RFK bridge several hours long ago. It's in Manhattan, but not sure where yet.
 

8713 en route to Castleton.
8687 en route to Kingsbridge.
8727 registered at Yukon, unsure if that will go to Castleton or not.

4261 and 4268 leaving YUK, (guessing they're headed towards MV). Saw them in the BBT just now.

B38/Q58 will start using artics.

 

Okay, so that makes the transfer to Grand make more sense, since I doubt that Fresh Pond can handle 60-foot buses. Overdue for the Q58.

That makes plenty of sense. The current terminal is very narrow from what I’ve seen in the past.

These discussions need to be moved to the "Random Thoughts" thread. It makes it difficult to weed out the actual bus moves.

Thank you.
