What’s with the gold sign 2005 O7 hybrids that the MTA is already scrapping them? Batteries coming up for replacement and the MTA doesn’t want to do that?

They’re old! Buses can’t last forever. They’re already beaten up. Time to make room for new buses.

Also the green units are pretty much all retired save for a handful at QV. The 05 units are the 2nd oldest and the new buses are flowing in so might as well retire them since there's nowhere for them to go.

The buses I believe have become more costly to maintain than MTA anticipated (though I am uncertain but it would make sense given age)

6662, 6674 removed from service

I saw 6662 getting towed back to MTV on Saturday, was wondering how long that bus would it take to pop up in this thread..

Surprised that the 1st gens are still running given there's only two of them.... 

normally the MTA is scrap-happy with buses as seen with most of the 1st and 2nd gen hybrids and before the RTS/D60s...

What’s the deal with 5477 that crashed into a fire truck a few months ago? And is 5299 and 7442 ever going to get repaired and start service again?

Look below for your possible answer.

Sometimes a bus is held in its' collision state by orders of the legal dept. if litigation is involved.

Not saying this is the reason why.

According to BusTime, no 2004 HEVs answered a call  to service yesterday. Are 6365-6489 completely done?

6432 ran the q46 in the morning. They;re around but I don't know if any will run again
