Where are the Orion VII NG gonna be assigned?

Recommended Posts

i hear that they gonna replace the TMC RtS and Orion Vs but where?

 

They will replace all 90-93 TMC (8000-8396, 8400-8565 with option of 8600-8703 and MTA Bus TMCs) and 93 Orion V (100-316). With where they will be placed at this is what I think they will be placed at:

 

Manhattan: Manhattanville

Brooklyn: Flatbush, Grand Avenue, Spring Creek, Ulmer Park

Queens: Carey Stegel, Baisley Park, LaGuardia, JFK

Bronx: Gun Hill, Kingsbridge, Amsterdam

Staten Island: Yukon

I belive in queens bailey park depot to be exact.

 

It's not likely that BP will get them, because the first 3 batches of O7's are for NYCT. I say not likely because they are all merged behind the scenes, and Baisley Park is MTA Bus Training Facility. They were just the test grounds for the demo buses.

Manhattan: Manhattanville

Brooklyn: Flatbush, Grand Avenue, Spring Creek, Ulmer Park

Queens: Carey Stegel, Baisley Park, LaGuardia, JFK

Bronx: Gun Hill, Kingsbridge, Amsterdam

Staten Island: Yukon

 

Eventually this is how it will play out, but the order is a little different, and this will stretch through 2010.

I think that may be the order as well. I recall a while ago that the (MTA) wanted Manhattanville as the first all hybrid depot. Of course Baisley, JFK, and Laguardia are most likely receiving new buses out of the 100-200 they are suppose to get. But in general, I think the ones that you listed are likely depots but too sure about S.I and the Bronx.

KB and GH are short on buses and the 100-600s have to go so i can see them getting Hybrids.... just not the first couple of batches... maybe the last batch. Amsterdam, I doubt because 80% of their fleet is already O7's so they'll probably get 99 O5's.

 

Add MJQ and 126st to the list.

I guesstimate the first ones going to Staten Island, Manhattanville, MJQ, and a Brooklyn depot. I don't see 126St getting any untill they rebuild the depot. KB needs them, but will most likely get older 1st Gen hybrids.
