60 were ordered, there was an option for an additional 40, I don't think they've been ordered yet since the MTA said they were going to wait until the first 60 arrived. That however was from the feb committee meeting.

thnx alot, but I just got 1 more question. Are the 08/09 Orion VII CNG exclusively for LIB? Cuz I see from the website u gave me that the MTA Bus and NYC bus have a different type of 08/09 Orion VIIs.

Yes. The VII NGs for LIB are CNGs while the NGs for NYC Bus and MTA Bus are the hybrid model.

CNG Buses uses Compressed Natural Gas as their source of fuel. They are known for the "hump" they carry on the buses. They are notably loud, and make a sort of hissing sound when nearly stopped.

The Hybrid buses use eletricity to power the buses. (Via the batteries they carry on the buses as well) They are quieter and somewhat move faster than CNGS.

 

The TTMG Wiki page that I linked you to can help you compare dimesnions, etc.
