Even though it's late to do this, I guess I'll start up a thread discussing the NYCT Orion V moves from NYCT to MTA Bus.

1995-1996 Orion 5.501

Well maybe is still New York City Bus labeling and Gun Hill Depot stickers because it was just a recent transfer.

 

Not an excuse; at College Point, the O5s transferred were not only re-lettered to MTA Bus, but had their front numbers moved down to JUST ABOVE the headlights, off the stripe. They came in with NYC Bus lettering and then went into service within a day or two with MTA Bus lettering and MTA Bus-style numbering.

I recently rode 116 on the Q60; the Orion 5.501s seem to be holding up well. How long can they go?

And btw, are there any Orions at (MTA) bus that still have coach seating?

All units at MTA Bus are reseated.
