PHOTO - MTA's never-delivered Orion VII 3G CNG now in service ...

Recommended Posts

The two MTA Orion VII CNG's that were built but never delivered to New York City are now in service in Syracuse:

Centro purchased these from Orion during the closeout.  I believe the other has been numbered #1271 but I need to confirm this.  They differ from Centro's own 2012 Orion VII CNG's (#1200-1255) by their framed windows, amber LED destination signs and standard headlights instead of LED.

Boy, that bus would have looked great in (MTA) livery. Centro really got some great buses!

That would have looked damn good on the B35, true shame about that. Excellent shots.

They would've looked better with NICE.  :D

 

NICE probably had a chance to buy them if they wanted.  Centro got these two buses for a pretty good price because Orion came to them asking if they were interested.
