I'm iffy on the LFS.

 

The scheme works on the XD60 because the larger area above the windows allows the gold line to extend and reach the front point of the bus. It would be tougher to fit the gold stripe on an LFS and include the light blue area with the number and WIFI/ USB decals.

It can work... It would just be a shortened version

The new wrap is actually growing on me

I like the fact that they are moving forward with merging both bus companies into 1 entity... Doing away with "Bus" and "New York City Bus" just leaving the MTA logo is plain genius...

1 Logo.. 1 Brand

Real simple

3514 BP to JFK

I'll add and say it's currently on the Q37 at the moment.

God damn no more D60s at JFK?

It was good while it lasted.

around Tuesday-Thursday this week, the D60s are no longer (stopped running) on the Q10 now that they have enough XD-60s to cover service  but 5557 is left there

Well then 5557 is due to return to NYCT sometime this weekend as well if there is enough XD60s then.

For the Depot roster, aren't 8481-8503 at QV? You have it as 8470-8503 at QV. 8470-8480 are at JAM.

8470-8480 have QV logos now

While I am glad QV got some more new stuff, I can't help but wonder why they decided to take on eleven more of those LFS' at this time.

Did Jamaica decide that they like the older units better? The mind boggles.

Individual depots do not decide on bus assignments. Senior management at bus division hq makes those decisions.

Then what's with the Brooklyn depots vying over who will get more of those high floor buses? I'm just asking as I don't quite understand it.

Nope. Those are QV units now. Those units were exchanged for 8059-69 which went back to Jamaica.

 

8470-8480 have QV logos now

 

I stand corrected. Did they leave last week? I saw them in service at JAM on the 20th.
