Here's what has tracked so far: 21001-21004, 21006, 21010-21011, 21030, 21032 (tracking incorrectly as 20132), 21040-21041, 21047, 21049-21052 and 21057.  Nothing has been delivered yet. 21001 made it up to Winnipeg.

NJT still maintains that this order is for 1104 coaches, and it appears that the last 33 buses will be delivered in the 2022 model year, by 2Q of that calendar year. NJT will still have hundreds of older cruisers - the 7100's, the 9000's, the 4000's and the 72-7300's. It's too early to tell if ridership will warrant the replacement of those buses.

The 4000s? The somewhat new hybrids are to be replaced already?!

7100s and 9000s are suppose to begin retiring in a few years right?

4008-4044 have to remain active for 12yrs as they were purchased with a federal grant. No new CTs will push them out, they will be around for at least 20yrs.

"That person" was stating what buses were still to be replaced, but that is going to be years down the road. The next big project is going to be replacing the transit buses

The 4000's and 7200, 7300's are way to young to be replaced. Only 5 years old.

All the good active remaining fleet wide D4000 are being transferred to Oradell bus garage. At same time, they are retiring the worse batch of D4000 at Oradell. Furthermore, the 1104 allotment of cruiser contract does not cover the Oradell cruisers. This separate contract will be published for bid once NJT has cleared the ongoing legal hurdle with the 56 plus acre of land in ridge field park. As of now the court’s legal decision will be made on the “papers” Nov 13 2020 at the bergen county court house. Stay tuned
