Orion NG ON LIB


Guest MTA Bus

Recommended Posts


Not testing. LIB bought 100 Orion NG buses and #1700 has arrived on service on N27.

 

It is a test / pilot bus. 1700 is here for testing / training and if all goes well, we will see more buses by mid-december.

 

As for pictures and such, search around buschat

To add: I really doubt that 1700 is a test bus. It may be here for 30 days, but I'm expecting that it will eventually return.

 

For instance, 3800 is back at Orion, but it is returning. I expect that this bus will go back to Orion and eventually return.

1700 and 3800 were both "pilot" buses. Typically built in advance of a large order and sent to the customer to put into revenue service.

 

3800 came back to the factory to have all updates (Orion and NYCT driven changes). When updated, it will return to service.

 

1700 has not been determined if it will return to the factory or not for updates.
