Who said that?

I was the one who caught the last trip, it did the 7:20am N26 trip to Great Neck on 12/17/2021. I also know the dispatcher working that day, so he can confirm.

Just happened yesterday (5/31/2022), but apparently 2015 New Flyer XN40 CNG #1889 had a bad fire while working the n15 in RVC. The bus is heavily damaged, far worse than either fellow 2015 unit #1930 or their NYCT cousin, 2017 unit #808, but looks as bad as 2016 unit #673, which has since been retired. #1889 might be written off along with #1897.

They seriously need to launch an investigation onto NICE's maintenance practices (or lack thereof).

Also the status of 2011 Orion 7.501 NG CNG #1807 and 2012 Orion 7.501 EPA10 3G CNG #1862 is currently unknown at this time, so NICE is short about 4 buses. They might want to consider reactivating a few 2009 Orion 7.501 NG CNGs. #1797 is already roadworthy after all.

That's some heavy damage. Despite this, It MIGHT not be a total loss as by judging by the area of the damage, it seems mostly limited to the rear bulkhead area of the bus, so my earlier speculation about the condition might have been a bit premature. However, we will have to await and see. NICE is about to receive 33 2022 New Flyer XN40 CNGs too, so this incident along with #1930's from last year might delay them for a while and could get the first option order of 2022-2023 Gillig Advantage BRT PLUS CNGs first.

I agree, even the new gillig BRTs have been breaking down

Does NICE really have that bad of a maintenance?

they have improved, (any time a Republican gets voted to be executive, they tend to be worse) especially when former executive Laura Curran got voted in, she actually tried fixing maintenance up. But then, Blakeman was voted in recently, and the system is going back to Mangano days.

That's a very strange occurrence. However, I'm not aware of NICE's budget being cut though. If anything, I think they got more Captial than ever.

Apparently, their maintenance is worse than I thought as YET ANOTHER 2015 New Flyer XN40 CNG caught fire in Hempstead earlier today! Bus #1886 might very well be a bound for Eastchester (I mean Cedar Creek) Scrap.....

Transdev has to go NOW!!!!

This the third fire of XN40s In how long? Transdev for WMATA's Cinder Bed wasn't this bad. Least the NJT Portion of Transdev is doing fine (Monmouth County)

3rd XN40 in a little over a year. If this continues, an investigation will need to be launched (I suspect that one was already in progress when XN40 #1897 was in a bad accident due to break failure, so they are now down 3 XN40s currently).
