Yes

'Soon' is relative i guess, but there will be 45 new electric buses arriving in the coming years.

No

Well Nova and BYD could submit bids in addition to NFI and Proterra.

LFSe probably not suitable, LFSe+ I believe is suitable?

That 45 electric bus order is over 2 years late. They should have started arriving around summer 2019.

Back in April, the C train went scheduled to go to the Bronx for the first time since 1998. It was also the first time the C used the R68 in regular service (outside of a rare one-off).

1585 should be a NYC unit

1385 should be a MTA bus unit...

Also, I have 1572, 1574 also delivered to Meredith Ave as of last night. It may not show up yet.

Yes, #1574 is the highest Meredith unit so far. I was reading a NY 1 news article from recently that was stating that the MTA is going to by over 2400 new buses in the next 3-4 years. More than half will supposedly by Clean diesels, while 500 units will have alternative fuels including 375 Electric buses, thus leaving the remaining 125 to be powered with an unknown fuel type. The article said that these will be new hybrids and POSSIBLY CNGs too, which if true I find very interesting! Anyone want to share their thoughts on this development?

No mention on artics?   The 2009/2010/2011  artics need replacements.

Also, EC only has 1382-1384. Unless 1385-1387 just came in.

Damn, I was going to report that. Any idea as to why though?

No clue and since Meredith and Castelton are swapping buses this would be good to get rid of the 08’s. I believe CAS has about 18 2008 CT’s.

But they have the 2007 CLs though. Also, 2008-10 NG hybrids #3955 and #4560 are both officially retired. First NGs outside of the #1700's and #1804 to be scrap bound.

That’s Charleston. 4300-4313, 4315-4329.  Castelton has CT’s.

I know #4314 was retired back in 2016 or so, but what happened to #4315? Is that one done too?

Damn, are the 2008-2009 CTs that bad that they need to be retired now?

LFS HEV Update:

9624-25, 9665, and 9699 all have been in service. M116 and M106 have been hogging tha Novas, but the 98 has been getting a few runs. Also, these things are FAST!
 

Unknown if any others have been in service, but i suspect they have.

Yeah whoops I was probably thinking of the meredith buses or something then. Whatever i put in on the wiki should be it as of 5 am this morning or whenever i published the update 

 

1572 and 74 at the time may have inside meredith but they weren’t in the system yet. And if it’s not in the system, it’s not goingout in service..

Well, legally they can retire them and the MTA is keen on getting rid of all CAT powered buses

1572 is definitely in the system plus I saw it entering the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel on deadhead earlier today. 
 

So 1385-1387 is official at Eastchester?

Any idea as to when the XDE40s and new XD40s will start arriving? I'm not sure what's taking the XDE40s so long to enter service when we had been testing them since 2018.
