4330 is at quill, 4336 is at kingsbridge

Damm, that was quick. I can assume now that Flatbush and MJQ will be splitting the 43xx buses. I thought 4336 made the move this morning. 

Don’t forget 5179 went to the scrap yard today.

There are still 9. Those units were retired yesterday, but they left the depot for scrap today.

Thanks for clarification KB.

Probably not. They're aesthetically identical to the allisons in every way so there's no need to keep one

It'll be cool if they did but I honestly don't think so

Facts on March 22 when the article was written, there were 168 in service. Now, as of today, I believe the count is 47. 15 days left is about 3 buses per day. 

On a side note....who would've thought the legacy fleet would have a countdown date? 😭

If May 10 does speak the fact that RTS is gone, then all the originality is no longer there. 

-Seats were reduced, but, with a bright side of USB ports.
