I was coming out from the Dunkin Donuts on Henry Street and Sunrise Highway in Freeport, when I saw an all-white articulated transit bus heading east bound. It caught me by surprise. There were no markings that I could see but the electronic route sign on the back was lit up and, I think I saw, a 4 digit fleet number.

Could this be a test vehicle for NICE? If not who owns the bus and where could it have been going.

This took place at about 3:15 PM

It might be either a demo, or I think more likely, a bus heading to the MTA. Baisley Park depot has recently been testing XD60, and the XD60 buses destined for JFK depot are being wrapped in a new MTA scheme.

Your assumption about the destination has got to be wrong. The bus was headed EASTBOUND on Sunrise, whereas Baisley Park is west of the slighting.

Since I didn't get a clear look at the rear route sign which was illuminated, could the vehicle have been demo-ing for NICE?

Could be headed to NEBR Deer Park.
