They released their wishlist with the pretty pictures and graphics a couple years ago now. I don’t think anything significant from it has been funded yet

Welp, the 2021 XN40s are out in full force now. Saw a bunch in service over the weekend.

2009 Orion VII NG CNG #1707 is now retired. Farebox removed and stripped of reusable parts. I'm not too surprised with this one though as this bus had a small engine fire a few years ago back in 2015.

2021 XN40 #1998 is officially in service with the new New York state plates. Was spotted on the n24 the other day. Not sure if #1997 or #1999 entered service yet.

Also, seems that buses #1980-1999 are currently the only buses in the fleet with the new plates as to my knowledge, none of the older XN40s/XN60s or any of the Orion 7 buses have them yet.

Yes and are now off the fleet roster.

Surprised that the few remaining 2004 Orion V CNGs at RVC depot have not yet been set to Cedar Creek. There are also a few OOS NGs parked there too.

shoot they didn't waste any time getting rid of that lone 2008.

No, they didn't, but it appears that before it retired, they gave that bus a different taillight set from another NG bus.

2009 Orion VII NG CNG #1737 is back in service despite earlier reports that it was retired. MF depot from RVC depot storage. Working on the n31 as we speak.

Is there a timeline as to when NICE will select a winner for the electric buses?

2011 Orion VII NG CNG #1824 is OOS due to a breakdown on the n31.

2009 NG CNG #1702 is now a NCFD training bus (in scrap condition). Also the 2021 Gillig Advantage BRT CNGs that are assigned to MF depot are actually #2000 and #2003. Bus #2001 is on the way and should be at NICE by tonight or tomorrow. Apparently, NICE is training B/Os with them and the full delivery is about to commence in the next week or so, with the first buses entering revenue service by mid-July. Get your rides on the 2009 Orion VII NG CNGs, cause they won't be around for much longer and will probably be retired by year's end latest.
