What do you mean CNG tanks lifespan ended?

 

IIRC there is a law where CNG tanks on buses must be replaced every 12 years. The MTA took over those PBL just about when those CNG RTS hit 12 years old, I guess the MTA didn't want GOH them with new CNG tanks.

So did they get scrapped or repowered to diesel? I've seen some after the takeover with the numbers 7xxx at Spring Creek, and now those exact numbers are at Far Rockaway. The 7xxx at Far Rockaway looks EXACTLY like the ones in the pics, minus the top.

MTA Bus sent the CNG RTS from LGA to SC after the pipeline explosion at LGA. Bus 7212 fell off of a lift or something before the takeover and was completely rebuilt. It was last seen at one of the GBL depots. IDK, my last two trips were to SEPTA and the PM Rush in Midtown.
