9674 scrapped. The end of the 97-98 units.

At least we still have the swing buses at ENY.

 

 

I remember my last ride on an 97-98 RTS, it was on the B60 a couple months ago. It was in pretty good shape for its age at the time.

I was on one a few months ago on the B13, and figured it would be my last. It seems they were all rushed out, ahead of the 96's (of which a bunch were actually taken back out of storage awhile ago, and now someone say they're going to be around for at least TWO more years), because of a defective wheelchair lift. Wonder why they didn't just take some lifts out of the 96's then, since that fleet was apparently so much better.

When a unit goes to scrap, does the TA save the driver shield to be put on to another bus or that it goes with it?

It's saved and put on another part along with whatever could be reused such as seats, wipers, mirrors, etc.

If you really are the hardcore fan, there's still 4900-4901 which are actual 1998 models from this order.

Well technically 4902-5104 were built in 1998 also. They are just 1999 models.

Just to point out: 7664 and 7670 are still at SC however, their farebox is removed as well as GPS.

*All Orion VII CNGs from 7560-7684 are finished except those two have a "Do not use" sign.

Can someone check the status of 5766? Saw it driving around with the tailpipe cover missing. Not that big of a deal but it did stand out.
