Metropolitan Transportation Authority 1000-1109
On January 25, 2017, the MTA Board approved a non-competitive contract of 110 compressed natural gas-powered articulated buses for MTA New York City Transit to New Flyer for an estimated total of US$95 million. These buses will replace the 2003-2004 model Orion VII CNG buses, whose certified CNG tanks are reaching their 15-year mark. The delivery of the production buses is expected to begin in April 2018 and to be completed by December 2018. For a short time, the buses were slated to be numbered 1016-1125 (As demonstrated by the demo buses being 1016-1020), but the original number range of 1000-1109 was restored shortly before delivery commenced.
These buses feature the blue and gold wave livery, onboard Wi-Fi, and USB charging ports.
