The only RTS I like, and these are getting retired before the 4900s or any 8000s or 9000s still alive😒. I blame UP.

5076 had one of the oldest paintjobs in the system on it, something like 2004 or 2005 if not before that. Shame to see that one bite the dust. I remember the brief stay it had at Quill, was a runner.

...and they were #8925-9074. Hence why several depots got pieces such as Jamaica with #9051, #9053-9056, #9065 and #9070-9073 along with their original order of #8939-8978. Other depots such as Flatbush, Manhattanville, Ulmer Park and 126th St received pieces too.

The bus order was split between 8752-8924 (8752-8806 to MV (first wave), 8807-8854 to WA (this was WA's final order of new buses), 8855-8898 (first wave) to GH, 8899-8924 to ENY) and 9075-9249 (9075-9110 to UP, 9111-9139 to OF, 9140-9185 to FP {9140-9149 had CUMM11} 9186-9228 to OS & 9229-9249 to GH (second wave) Express service saw the last 100 buses with 9250-9281 to YUX, 9282-9284 to OHX, 9285-9344 to UPX and 9345-9349 to JAX. The Express assignments in Staten Island was only a two year temporary until the MCI batch started popping in, then they had their cushion seats removed for hard ones which was then assigned to local service and transferred over to JA. Meanwhile, UP's Express buses stood until the MCIs popped in, then assigned to local service and stood there until they was transferred to LGA in 2006-7. OH's service went over to WS (now MQ), then got replaced by Orion V 100 series, and discontinued in 2010 (You know the rest).

Though it seems they were there for about two years, I have not seen many photos of the RTS in express service.

I took photos of them as they was in service from both YU & UP during the 1996-1998 campaign. Matter of fact, the older RTS buses was on the sea of Express routes (including the BMs as well when they was part of Command.). Now you don't see them anymore since they "uniformed" each level of service

9186 was delivered to Fresh Pond
9282-9284 were delivered to Yukon then sent to MJQ a couple of years later while #9250-9281 went elsewhere (9250-9256 to Jamaica, #9257-9281 to Ulmer Park)

Thanks for that. I was close with FP’s order. As for Quill, it was formerly known as Westside: a combination of the old AM & OH buses that at that time had: M10, M11, M16/34, M23, M42, M27/50, M30/72, M79, M86, M96/106, M98 & M102. The M20 came later 

its roster had: 4113-4166 (AM & OH)

4508-4553 (OH)

8201-8229 (OH/HP)

8600-8670 (OH/AM)

4834-4853 (HP) 

the artics & the 5000 series Buses came a year later.

1986 GM-RTS 4508-4553 were delivered to 126 St. (the only TA depot in Manhattan). I remember them on the M-15 & M-15 Limited.

I remember that 4567 (JAM) had Chicago-style windows.

That was the very first time, but as years go by, new bus fleets come in & older buses get either shipped elsewhere or scrapped, depending on how old they are.
