It looks like 9239 is retired.

I saw that one Wednesday getting towed out of Bridgeport.

9276 (November 2019) and 9211 are back in service...

Both must have swapped major components with other retirees.

If they’re dealing with a coach shortage - which they might well be, given the delays in delivery of the Enviro500s - this might be necessary as a stop-gap.

Makes sense.

9212 Joins the retirement line at RTC

Turns out 9212 was involved in a MVA. There is heavy damage to the left bottom quarter panels as well as the left rear vent. It looks as if it left the road as there is some damage to the front bumper as well as dried up mud under the front bumper. The front 2 windshields are busted & missing.

9262 & 9266 are now on the retirement line

all RTC buses quarantined for 14 days as a result.

All jokes aside, there are 25 S50 Orions remaining in the fleet.

9262 is not dead. It was running this morning.

9266, on the other hand, is definitely done, if the note on the farebox is any indication.

9235 & 9283 are sitting on the retirement line. Can't confirm if 9283 is retired though?

9283 started up again on the 22nd. The '08 Orions have a few more years left in them.

According to the Wiki, December 2017.

As I recall, that is correct. It was out of service for months, possibly at least since the summer of that year.
