The quality control stickers... I don't believe they're in usage anymore, which is why you don't see them on any of the moved buses, or repaints. They're now doing "level II" status buses, which can be considered the new version of "quality control". It's not bad, saves on decal material, but otherwise small and hard to notice oftentimes.

 

ETA: RokuSix, good quote at the end of your sig.

I believe the Quality control thing was basically a maintenance program in which the bus would receive this if it were at a certain level of condition. I'm not sure if they still keep it for existing buses (after repaints) but I have seen new buses delivered with them. As stated the (MTA) has since moved to the Level II designation but I believe I heard somewhere they even decided to get rid of that.

I was told by the asst. chief transportation officer that "we (MTABus) don't have quailty control". For a bus under miserable contol go to LaGuadia depot:)(NYCT)

 

Quality is under control.

Quality control used to be a program where buses must be maintained at a certain level where body panel are scratch&dent, graffiti free, clean and etc... Level II is the same thing, but the program is no longer done since it wasted too much resources and there was no way to keep the buses in "like new" condition.
