Michael Jackson's "Gone to Soon" in the back of my mind as I watch the video and look at the photos - especially in the case of the CNG which were scrapped in mass in early 2012. Question about scrapping of MCI's. Wouldn't express buses have lower mileage and be in better condition from seeing more highway and less stop and go mileage? The old NY Bus service ran 22-23 year old Fishbowls before the MTA takeover in 2005. So why do so many MCI's get scrapped after just 12-14 years of service. An LGA r outegoes right past my place and I watch a parade of 17++ year old RTS go past every day. I understand the tank issue with the CNG's but cannot figure out the early scrapping of MCI's.

Those Fishbowls did run like 2 trips a day, so it wasn't bad.

I was at the 125th Street Depot, but decided not to take pictures cause there were (MTA) employees standing there. Out of curiosity, was there anyone there?

A friendly guard, but I think there's two guards, if you pick the right day you might get him instead. At least stay on the sidewalk, because that's considered public, not MTA property. There's really no one around except that guard, and the buses pulling in and out.
