9678, 9721, 9723, 9724 assigned to Manhattanville, currently in Secaucus & plattsburgh respectively.  9723, 9724 (upstate)

9711, 9715. Delivered to Manhattanville.

I wonder if the 2021-22 LFS hybrids could all end up being reassigned to the Manhattan division depots? If Kingsbridge and possibly Gun Hill rebuke their units, maybe they could get new XDE40s or the 2021-22 LFS clean diesel buses from other parts of the system. What do you guys think?

2009-2010 Orion VII NG hybrid #4556 is down for the count. Also 2008-2009 MCI D4500CTs #2218-19, and #2227 are all retired as well along with 2005 D4500CL #3242.

About 845 NG hybrids remain in service.

Anything is possible, but the fact that new units are still being delivered to KB would seem to indicate that the powers that be at MTA Regional Bus still want those units at that depot.

But don't the garage manager(s) have a say? I remember back in 2005 when the second batch of Orion VII OG hybrids were being delivered (#6490 and up) East NY depot was at one point slated to get some, but they rejected them (only to get the 4th batch in 2007, #6790-6847). Can't that happen here?

There's always politics at regional bus. Managers do have a say. However, at the end of the day it's up to top brass where the buses go.

I thought #9657 was here for a while now?

Bus has only been here for about a week since the move from Jersey.  9658 just came in over the weekend. Saw service today.  So it appears whatever issues some of these HEVs having are being addressed.  9740, 9745, 9752  and a few others are at Secaucus. The rest of the delivery is for Manhattanville sprinkled in with Kingsbridge and 100th Street.
