5994 is on the Q44. 5987-5993 is at CS Still so idk about them moving to LGA yet for summer loans.

LGA/Q53 should only need 33 buses for summer service. So only 5987-5990 should be transferred.

At this current moment, it looks like the '08s D4500CTs from NYCT won't be seeing service at MTA Bus. I drew this conclusion due to 2218, 2219 and 2227 being sent to Eastchester Scrap after formerly being assigned to Spring Creek and Far Rockaway (pending).

Those were not for service. Those buses were parts buses.

So, does it mean the remaining '08s D4500CTs will be joining service at the MTA bus at a later date?

No, it does not.

A parts bus means that they take out parts from that bus in order to use on other buses.

Thank you. So what is going to happen to the remaining buses?

Scrap.
 

They all have over 500k miles, some close to a million. Some of them also have bad frames.

I can only imagine how many miles the last of those 2002 D4500's racked up before they were retired.

1438 is running on the QM16 today.

I'm assuming trackers are disabled? Because I tried to track it earlier and it didn't appear

They take time to update. I say like weeks or so.

It appears that the lease is up on the XEs as of this month(still awaiting info on that). There are two Proterras still in service.

11-15 are all at Northeast Bus Rebuilders.

16, 18 & 20 have been OOS for a week and some change. 17 and 19 are currently the two active Proterras left.

There are three Proterras in service right now (17, 19-20). They are all running on the B60.

No on the road training today. We was just being briefed on the new specifications of the bus today.

No trackers on 1438 as of now. Flying under the radar. A stealth bus.

Here we go😀:

Vehicle 1438 Riders: 8 on route QM18-South Ozone Park - Midtown Express 1:10 ahead of 6:37:40PM. going →S. Ozone Pk 130 St via Lefferts Bl past 3 Av on E 57 St

The map and the description do not match. According to the map the unit is crossing the Eddie Koch bridge.

 

Only 8 riders. Is this the only bus that's been carrying air around or poor ridership is an issue in all routes?
