5227 should be off the scrap list---acquired by the NJ Transportation Museum in Lakewood. For members, 5227 should be down there by September 21.

It was never on the list to begin with.

3778 looks like it just came out of the laundry machine! Bus looks completely washed out.... No stickers on the bus, only a washed out blue stripe, and a paper by the rear windows that says 3778 and a Queens Bus Map inside. Saw the bus turning towards Grand Avenue Depot. The sign on the bus said Not in Service.

It’s heading towards Grand for a repaint. A lot of MTA Bus hybrids are getting second repaints.

6655 from LGA is going to scrap.

A few of the 2005 Hybrids didn't see or barely saw any service before getting sent to scrap after being transferred to LGA. Were those intended parts buses like 6430 or actually died upon getting to LGA?

No, they were just complete junK. 

no its just LGA doesn't know how to maintain buses, 8750 is the biggest example of that.
