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)
