Are they serious? Dont tell that TMC RTS Bus is in for a scrap. West Farms Depot can used that type of bus. But that will never happen.I remember seeing those in Jackie Gleason Depot in Brooklyn before one of the move of the Bus to Kingsbridge Depot in the Bronx and as far as i heard that the same TMC is in Manhattanville Depot in Manhattan.And now this one used to run under by castleton depot. DAMN!!!

Those TMC should get scraped. They can renew those TMC buses instead of the the company spending millions of dollars makind new bus models. The can keep them in good shape.

Do you know what number bus this is? Usually NYCT RTS-06's don't have the slats on the left side.

I don't know about GH but KB's short again, 3 of the BX9 runs are O5's during the week... the usual. What I don't get is how they never put O5's on the Bx4,39, or 55 but always on the Bx1/2,9 and 40/42.

 

The bus with the CAS sticker is 8566. The 856x's have the left side vents.

 

Did you happen to catch the numbers on the hybrids? Hopefully they're for KB. all transfers have to go through WF 1st because it's the Division HQ so they might not stay there.

Nice catch!! Actually 8565 and 8566 were the only TA RTS' with the left side vent, and they are both 1994 models.

Well JG sent VII CNGs to West Farms again so that might not be it.
