In NYC you don't even have to do that - it's on the windshield decal!

So am I missing something, or does nobody record VINs down there?

Unfortunately, all MTA (and other government) owned bu ...

Were the Orion hybrids purchased with federal funding? If so, that might complicate such a sale.

If you can translate this, it would appear they are New York State funded, not federal:

Depending how deep you want to get into, a good place to start is the New York State Archives in Albany. They have the PSC reports for bus companies from the 1920s to 1980. The PSC reports contain ros ...

It is supposed to be 100. 60 for the base order and 40 option buses (which appear to have been used).

The six T8H5307A's retained their QT Express numbers when they were sold to Queens Surface.

The Queens Surface 1360's were ex-New York Bus Service 1361-1366 and 1374-1379 (T6H5308A's).

Don't forget, Avenue B was supposed to also get 13 Grumman's which went to NYCTA as 553-565. Supposedly, they were assigned Ave B numbers which I don't recall. 700's???

My understanding is that the new management in Omaha has decided to cancel the old-look rebuilding project. That magic word - cost.

About a 100 years ago (it feels like it, at least), a Conestoga Transportation Company article was published in Motor Coach Age (August 1973 issue). I doubt it's still available from MBS.
