 5879 was in an accident today with a man who had reportedly chased the bus 23 blocks, cracking both rear view mirrors, ripping off both windshield wipers and smashing several doors that bus may be oos for a lil bit 

New rule: don't add a bus to this thread unless it is confirmed as retired or scrapped.

Not sure if this is true: 4949 is used as a training bus alongside 5188-5189

I'm actually surprised that 4936 or 4916 aren't in that purpose. Each has the second brake allowing such. (4949 does as well, and so that doesn't surprise me.)

23 blocks? Hmmm that doesn’t make sense. Bus is to be repaired with new windows and whatever it needs. Man to pay a very hefty price for this chase, and cause of damage

5573 retired out of Gun Hill. 

IMO it's probably done since it hasn't run in more than a week. 

For what it's worth, it was transferred to west farms and then promptly retired
