Probably a loan, as SC doesn't have any hybrids.

That’s what we thought about 3563 before they slapped SC decals on it....

But 3563 isn't a hybrid. 6549 is still a hybrid.

Doesn’t make a difference. Before 3563 transferred to Spring Creek, only CNG buses ran on the B100 and B103...

It does make a difference. The MCI express buses are diesel. I'm saying that 6549 is a loan.

It's a loan guys... 3563 is also a long time loan, it is not permanently assigned to SC.

5299 is being repaired at NEBR as well as 5477. This vendor actually has pictures of both buses being worked on. Pretty cool... http://nebr.us/albums/nebr-shop/

1201, 1205, 4799 were involved in thermal events and will not be repaired. 

I didn’t mentioned 4799 because that bus is back in service in Gun Hill

@TransitMan0251 what were the two blue Nova  bus LFSes that was facing each other in this album? As I was looking thru it, I saw many NYCTA buses getting repaired (non damaged ones)

Saying that it's a long-term loan can be said for any bus that's been swapped....or any bus in general.

Regardless of how it's assigned, it's at Spring Creek until something changes. It will be 6 months since it's been there.

4743-4745 at UP from KB for training

I hope they stay there so that way UP can send a few buses elsewhere and the B1 doesn’t have to be transferred to another depot

It's permanent. 

 

They are for usage on the B1 by spring pick.

It won't. The route will stay as it is (at Ulmer Park).

It would be nice if a B6 operator could take one out on the line. This would be a good opportunity for them to see how artics work on the line.
