Not 100% sure if it has been mentioned but 1010, 1012, 1014, 1074 are at WF. 1075 and 1078 are at JG. Whatever XD60s that were assigned there are now un-assigned.

For the Orions at JFK, maybe 6544 was a typo? It looks like the only ones there are 6501, 6535-6537, 6539-6543, 6545

5326-5328 FB to OF (not sure if this was mentioned)

Looks like some deployment to MCH/OF has begun. I think those buses are staying there for the immediate future. Plus the runs are being cut due to the summer and limited trips past Avenue U beginning Tomorrow.

So if I’m correct with this Fresh Pond could possibly be next to receive new XD40’s as a result of these moves?  This is going to be a weird summer along Jamaica Avenue.

Well I have no insight into what replaced what but given all the evidence so far, very likely yes. They'll probably retire (or displace) 5204-5206, which hardly run mow anyway, then make up for the 7s that have been lost to JFK.

Anyone know if LGA will be getting more 1999s to take care of their 1996s, or are they also getting more 7s?

No more RTS to MTA. It's Orion vii ogs.

Don't say anything yet. Usually when FB gives away artics they get them back by the next pick.

More than just some LFSAs and Orion 7s have moved. There have been New Flyer D60 & Nova RTS retirements. Some MCIs have been shuffled in the Bronx and Queens.

Incorrect, 7664-7675 is already at the service center and is in +selectbusservice paint.

Here is 7672...

Will this be pending for East New York SBS?

Only reason I ask is only b/c it's no update in regards to the B82SBS+

Excellent work as always!

As in, the hybrids from NYCT depots such as MHV, ENY transferring their O7's, FB with their NGs etc. removing the RTS from service

Did you make a typo for the fleet numbers for the batch going to Flatbush? If they are to receive 48 buses, they should have 7616-7663, since 7616 is also at Flatbush.

Never mind. Saw the correction for the buses in a previous post.

Actually fleet plans call for Bus to have 25 RTS through 2019. I haven't checked to see if it changed yet.
