If it didn't have the EV graphics on it, then chances are, it was the Diesel version.

Yeah it was the regular version then. Kinda figured since it was all white.

Seems that 2014 NABI BRT 42 hybrids #8023-24 have both been transferred to Andrews Medical Center from Cinder Bed. Meanwhile, the XN40s in the #2800s are all still based out of Bladensburg depot (though someone mentioned recently on another site that one was on the 28A the other day).

8023-8024 were at Cinder Bed for a brief period, then 8032-8035 were at Bladensburg at another brief period. Could've sent the D40LFRs but most are just a "Ready Reserve" fleet 🤷‍♂️

Perhaps the NABI BRT 42 hybrids will be the next buses to go to Ready Reserve instead of the New Flyer DE42LFA hybrids?

Additional 2022 New Flyer XD40s have been delivered to WMATA. Originally this year, we were suppose to get 75 XD40s, but it seems WMATA has picked up an option order for more XD40s. I'm not sure how Many there are, but its likey 100 so the order will ve 4600-4699, unless WMATA skips 4699 like they've done to 4599.
