They also plan on getting new OTR coaches in the near future to use on 4 new Manhattan-bound lines (similar to Bee Line's BXM4C and MTA's express lines). That might require an entirely new depot to su

NICE's network map. 

IIRC, the last unit was #1677 working the n22X?

They'll probably be around for probably another 2 years. I don't believe NICE has the resources currently to procure new buses

Is there any plans for more CNG artics? I don't see any for the next upcoming orders..

Brand new 2021 XN40 CNG #1980 was involved in an incident yesterday with several injured riders after a car cut the bus off and the B/O had to break hard to avoid an accident. No crash occurred, but a few people fell out of their seats. Bus was working the n25 line.

Wikipedia says 1999-2000

According to facebook, it appears that the numbers for the CNG Gilligs have changed, for NICE is surprisingly get 15 additional XN40s, #1985-1999! So the Gillig Advantage CNGs will most likely start at #2000 and end around #2164. So expect some more 2009 Orion VII NG CNGs to be retired over the next few weeks. 2 so far have been taken out of service (3 if you count #1804).

No, these are all CNG buses. They haven't had a new diesel order since 1995.

#1703 is retired out of Mitchell Field Depot. Bus is stripped for parts and almost ready for scrap.
