Saw an 800 or 900 on the B9 today, they are still here. If I had had it my way SC and JG would've had all their new buses alrady and the old c40lfs and o5 cngs would've been at WF and CS (respectively) to be retired or bumped off by the new arrivals. I mean is CP going to need all the buses if the plan/rumor is to have CP take on all the express routes of CP and LGA?

 

I think he means the Old C40's at West Farms.

No offense to the planned rumor of cp going mostly express, whether its true or not, the rumor has been going on since 2008, you can't base moves based on rumors.

Actually it is not a rumor the QM-12 from LGA was just transferred over to CP at the start of the winter pick. The QM-24/25 will be moving to CP as well Im not sure as to when.

It's not a rumor if the bus operators at both LGA and CP are both aware about LGA's QM24/25 being lost to CP soon. It might be the summer pick or the fall pick. And yes LGA lost the QM12 to CP for the Winter Pick. The B/O's I know have told me about this.

From his wording it looked like he meant the c40lfs as a whole. But just pointing it out that they are still around.

Thus I said rumor, and if they have more buses than needed, what happens to them? Will WF take them and bump off some artics? I think it's a valid opinion.

4920 from JAM, at ECH stripped for scrap. Also, 9892, 9915, and 9968 scrap.

 

Bye bye, 9915 and 9968:

You know what's ironic, when 9915 broke down for the last time, it died working an LGA route. I figured that bus was done for since the operator said the CNG was leaking from the back area.

Shortly after it ran out of CNG due to the leak. Had to be towed back to CP.

Wow 9915 was dying for a while I remember taking 9915 like a month or two ago on the Q25 and 9968 ran until the very end the final 1998 bus at CP.

6092, 6273, 6289, 6311 and 6325 to Castleton from Yukon for maintenance.

Yukon, along with their Orion Vs are getting hit hard the most out of the three S.I depots with a good chunk of their Orion Vs out of service. This would likely explain why I seen a few Orion VII EPA10s and Castleton Orion Vs on the S44 and S62 two nights ago....

 

Meanwhile, 6155, 6169, 6172, 6182 & 6277 are at Yukon to make service.

I think 1001 was running out of JFK...

and 5500 and 5504 have JFK stickers, Im guessing they'll go back to FR when the depot gets restored?

A 1000 bus is running? I thought they were all gone?

They can maintain the artics at FR? Or is it just for FR to use and JFK does the work on the buses (if needed)? It seems like everything's mixed up with JFK buses on FR routes. Lol, what's the point of the sticker?
