6392 6402 MV-->scrap

6468 qv-->scrap

I forget if it was 6401 or 6402 that had its batteries replaced, but if it was 6402 then that concludes the Li-on OG fleet...

It's 6401 so the Li-on survives for now

Originally both had it, but one was converted back to lead acid. Guess that was 6402. Forgot about 6485.

5227 (RTS) off the scrap list. 

 

Also, 2 RTS mentioned before are currently used as Bridge and Tunnel Operation buses around Randalls Island (4947, 5054)

6409 to scrap caught fire today at 145 and Frederick Douglass 

Thank god that it was a retiring bus that caught fire and not a 2006 or 2009 Orion.

6394, 6425-6426 MV scrapped. With all this said, the current MV Gen 1 Orion fleet stands at 39 buses (18/21 split between the 2003s and 2004s)

6488 QV scrapped. They have 51 Gen 1s right now

So far within the last month: 

2 RTS from FB

4 HEV G1’s  from MV saved from the scrap yard and used for training purposes.  

Hope all of those buses get a fresh coat of paint and preserved.

6384, 6387, 6391, 6406, 6409, 6411, 6416, 6419, 6435 removed from service.

Just for the record, I have no clue if these go on to have miscellaneous second lives elsewhere with the MTA, I just report if the bus will not be running in service anymore

Expect more Gun Hill  and possibly Kingsbridge buses to 132nd this weekend.
