Here's another interesting one: according to TTMG #5017 is listed as a QV bus?:confused: I thought it was only going to be a loaner?

 

Saw it on the Q46 yesterday sporting QV decals.

Yay. lol

 

Also 9696 from FLA might become a permanent QV bus as well.

 

 

Btw where's 5135? Haven't seen it since June 28th on the Q43. Isn't it suppose to go to manhattan?

I'm sure not every camera works, I'm sure some are decoys!

 

LGA has 2 camera buses: 8872 and 8987. Do you think they take pics?

Heh, yup, good point. I highly doubt it. Even if they did, once they break, that's it for those cameras.

 

Let him wrap his mouth around an exhaust pipe of one of "his" FP originals!
Lmao! Excellent answer!

Man, I saw that bus outside City Hall in April. I hope QV treats it well...

Damn, I still hope it is returned when the whole nova lfs order is done. Ever since the NGs arrived, the RTS fleet has only gotten older since then. Again, not that it's a problem, but still...

who knows? lol there could be a RTS swap at that time but its wait and see

 

Oh don't worry QV will treat it well. Very well, just like the younger RTS fleet we house

Good to know. [From what I've read over the years]: the QV OGs were not too good, possible they were lemons?

 

They had issues constantly on and off but its all good now (7 years later)

They hybrid maintenance has improved alot.

You mean this link. I'm 99.9% sure we had posted this first and it eventually gets ripped onto SubChat (Like a lot of our usual posts....)

I like the Prevost. This give a variety of express buses now for the MTA. Remember, these are only test buses. I hope the MTA orders more down the road.

QV had horrible hybrid maintenance at one point in time. It has since improved 100%. The buses are doing much better now.

Yeah, you are a little late dude. And the bus is off the production line, ready for audit inspection, then delivery within the next 2 weeks.
