6594 has been at FP for a while. 

I wasn't aware of it, thanks for the info...from what I understand, ENY Has A Couple Of FP 6500s. Is that true?

No problem. ENY & FP have been swapping buses as of late. Don’t be surprised if more moves were to happen.

Could be a transfer from KB. 4223 is also at QV, running on the Q36 right now.

It came from Kingsbridge. This move was already reported last week.

Sorry, just saw it now, my bad.

Looks like Eastchester does more than just QM2 and QM32 during the morning rush, saw #3373 on the QM20 this morning on Northern Blvd heading westbound towards the Grand Central Pkwy. If that's normal, then it's not reflected on the roster...which was why I mentioned it. I knew the QM2 and QM32 have Eastchester runs on it in the morning and the BxM9 with some College Point runs in the evening.

It isn't normal.  Over the last few years, Eastchester has been either doing or lending buses to do trips on a number of lines.  Always seems to be around this time of the year too.

EC has had trips on the QM20 since they split the BxM9 with CP during the rush hour. So it technically is normal.

That I don't doubt.  I guess what I'm thinking of is on other lines outside of what has been mentioned. They also seem to do Yonkers trips too, but I only see them during the winter time. They must either lend the bus or a driver physically does the trip.  Not sure what's up with that either.

I also noticed that FP got some of their 6500s from ENY as well because I saw 6590 and 6592 on the B60 this week and I saw 6594 on the B52 as well

What’s going on with KB losing buses?

I believe they had about 14 extra locals to support all there NG’s being upgraded. Now upgrades are pretty much wrapped up so extra buses went to those depots that either went up for service or was already short buses.
