MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

Recommended Posts

While FB and MJQ have been mass retiring the RTS as of late, it's been slow the last few days for Ulmer Park. 4996 and 5090 are both out right now on the B6 and B3 respectively and it remains to be seen if the last eight RTS out of Ulmer make it through the weekend (knowing MTA, they probably won't).

Still 9, actually. 5108 is running today. 5090 was supposed to but crapped out. FB keeps 20.

One question: Why are buses long-retired (like 1996 RTSs) still listed?

Some on that year made are still out there but for other purposes

Soon to be all done with RTSes with lower flipdot screens by the window. Every RTS in the fleet came that way, with the switch in the 1998 order to the higher display. Then all of the 1997-1998s and most of the 1996s were modified during their service for the high display. This was also true with the Orion V and D60HF orders. Some reason the 49xx 1998s (most, at least) kept their lower displays.

I'm calling it now RTS to end in Manhattan with MJQ being the last depot..

I'm curious to see what will be the Very Last RTS run in history? Probably on a shorter route like the M66 or M72.

Actually, they went from 20 to 14, then it dropped to ten. These scrap moves happened over the weekend and today.
