B63 is all Orion VII CNG's now
« on: February 02, 2011, 05:11:11 pm »
As real time tracking hits the B63, I've noticed something and the trackers support it [checked a few times]. If you check it out, there are no Orion V's or C40LF on it. Good or bad?

ugh o7s cant stand em lol had to pack myself into one this morning on the 23 and the doors kept opening on me -_-

anyway it all depends on what the drivers decide to pull out of the depot; AFAIK there are no rules concerning specific models of buses allowed on the B63 so it can be anything that the gleason depot has (orion 5, orion 7 and c40)

The B63 is currently operating Orion VII's only because of MTA Bus Time testing. Once the test is over you might see them on C40LF's.

Well, my school usually has 7 B16 Shuttles, and 1 B63 Shuttle

For some weird reason, there were 3 B16 Shuttles and 1 B63 Shuttle.

That B63 shuttle was a C40LF So  Dman1455 is probably right

If it's all Orion VII CNGS, The C40LF's / Orion V's might go to the B4,B9,B11,B16,,B61,B67/69 [one of them got eliminated; I'm not sure],B70

Then it's to 60th Street, and when the driver is on his/her last run they go to 36th Street Then
