Saw it last night while on Nostrand. Just a bit surprised that buses are being moved during this situation.  At the least FB got the last bus to complete 29 XD60’s 2017.  
 

I wonder what’s gonna happen with the M14SBS down the line since the (L) project is 99.999% done with the remaining .1% of projects to be finished by fall or early 2021 due to the crisis.

The M14 will still have the LES residents riding it.

They're staying put for now, upcoming plan involve 6275-6286 to be placed/wrapped on the Q70 LGA Link. They can be moved if there's a future delivery plan for more artics at LGA.

Yes I also believe this is why LGA is holding onto their remaining (13) NYCT XD60's. Looks like the plan will be as follows:

LGA 

  • 7445-7456 (12) UNWRAP to Local Scheme 
  • 6275-6286 Install LaGuardia Link Wrap to be used on the Q70SBS
  • 6534-6535, 6539, 6643 (4) to JFK or SCRAP
  • 3620, 3632, 3635, 3717 (4) to JFK **Hopefully**
  • 6068, 6070, 6072, 6074, 6076, 6078, 6080, 6082, 6084, 6086, 6088, 6090, 6092 (13) to FLAT

BP

  • 5383-5390 (9) to JFK

JFK

  • 6249-6257 (9) to LGA

LGA has kept like 6 of them because there would not be enough buses for both the Q53 and the Q70 to be artic if they only used the 6200s

BP

JFK

Those are not moving for now. LGA won’t have enough buses to do the Q53/Q70SBS.. Also, unless there’s another artic order coming those other swaps won’t be happening for now.

At the expense of being criticized by the BusChat Police, a post like this belongs in the "Random Thoughts" section. 

This section is for moves and transfers THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED, and not for speculation.

4953, 4960 and 4964 also out of Quill. 

Unrelated question:  Only missing 4956, 4961. Correct?

Its at Hale. You might of seen the video of the bus driver on NBC which was from Mid March. It has since returned to Hale (On the M7 as we speak).
