Orion 05.501 Renumber *CHOW* *Screeeeeeeeeeeeetch*

Recommended Posts

So the Orion 5 wont be renumbered #6000 - #6097. Ok . What roster will Gun Hill Depot will receive of Nova Bus LFS that #6000 - #6097 ( renumber to #1290 - #1387.) Which Depot will receive next Nova Bus LFS articulated batch right after West Farms Depot fully received & completed recieve #5936 - #5987? ( lil confused.) Now that is the confusion part.

Riders do not care about the buses' fleet numbers.

The Orion 5s are already numbered 6000-6097. They were gonna be 9700-9797 but that changed.

 

I would assume the order is the same, just the bus number is the only thing that changed

I'm embarrassed I actually heard the title in my head as the noise of emergency brakes going off...

 

Appreciate the info though, definitely begs the question why they couldn't have just started at 1290 in the first place.

It wouldnot make sense for them to be renumbered anyway because in 2-3 years these buses are retiring. They will be the last Orion V's in NYC because the Orion V 1996 and Orion V CNG's and Beelines are retiring.

Has West Farms received their allotment. Last I saw I think they have 5962. But these LFSA deliveries are coming in early. I see that 126th is next, if I'm reading this correctly. A new set of bus moves for the month of September.
