It seems that the 2003-04 Orion VII (Green LEDs) that were at QV are all out of service. 

That stinks! No more Flip-dots in local service!

Very few. Just added on the bottom as a sticky note. 

 

But 6433 is retired

Did 6445 retire? Because that has the Orange LED.

Were 6445, 6447, 6475, 6478, 6479, 6484 all scrapped as well?

6445 is around still but IIRC it's not like it's going to run in service anymore...

What do you mean that they don’t work?

They are in a state that it is not reasonable for the MTA to fix them. Why fix a transmission or engine on a 15+ year old bus?

Because replacement buses are streaming in quickly. it lowers average bus mileage in each depot, reduced maintenance costs, results in more reliable service (well, in some cases... Not sure how the RTS vs. 2019 XD40 reliability battle is going...), and it makes the public feel good. There’s nothing to lose by shoving these hybrids out the door.

And on that note, 6429, 6436 removed from service

When do you think the 2005 Orion VII Hybrids will retire?

I say the East New York batch will go past summer. Since they don’t like NG’s and there’s not enough XD40’s to swap around in the Brooklyn Division. ENY’s case is interesting.

Yes, that is correct. However, after Manhattanville DOB will definitely go after Fresh Pond. Since Fresh Pond may be due some Gun Hill NG’s since they aren’t enough XD40’s to spare.
