RTS's back at JG?!

Recommended Posts

Rumors are that some Orion V CNG's from Gleason went to Long Island so Gleason got some RTS's in return. (this is a rumor no photos so far have surfuced)

 

the buses are.. 5191 9234 9397 and 9409

 

Be on the lookout

 

Also what are your thoughts on this?

I thought JG only had a CNG facility. Still an interesting move.

 

No, Remember the HAI RTS's and the Metrocard Bus RTS are stored at Gleason.

I'm thrilled about this, I gotta get over to JG territory asap, an RTS on a JG is something I honestly do not even remember.

 

 

 

Not 5191! Straight from FB! The rest are though.

 

oops, thought that said 5091 lol

Long Island? Are they dumping older stuff on what will become Veolia, or is this Atlantic Diesel, or whatever the disposal lot is?

(And if they are sending older stuff to Veolia, does that mean they are going to bring the NG's 17-1800's out there in, or are those owned by the county?)

This thread isn't about Veolia/Long Island. It's about TA RTS' being at the Jackie Gleason Depot.

Buses 1700-1759 are county owned. Buses 1760-1839 were MTA owned but sold to the county.

I think they (1760-1839) are actually being leased to the county, unless Nassau came up with $30 Million. And I really don't think they did!

I know that, but was just wondering why Orions would be heading to "Long Island".

 

There's a bus shortage at JG hence the RTS being xferred over.
But it seems this shortage is from buses there being sent elsewhere. So does that mean those CNG's are scrap or something?

LI's Orion V CNG's have to be inspected by the DOT by December 31st. Many of them are not ready for inspection, so they are being sent to NYC for maintenance. In the process, MTA sent CNG's to Nassau so they can continue to make service while their buses are being prepared for inspection.

 

All the TA/BC Orion V CNG buses will all be scrapped soon, as the new buses are currently being delivered.

For such a short time, I kinda doubt that those would've been listed unless they did a recent update of the roster.

 

Nah, they were listed when the xfer occurred and removed today.
