Well, I think we all knew it's just a matter of time, especially with the NYCT/MTA Bus folks apparently involved behind the scenes. Hopefully there will be an order of artics not too far behind.

About time Smile It will be interesting to see if the new order replaces some of the older Orion V(100's) or it's for added service. whatever it is, it's well worth it.

This should be interesting. I wonder if LIB will go with the standard Orion VII NG front doors or if they'll try to add a four-section folding door.

Why CNG? That is so 1990s. Go the diesel-electric hybrid route instead.

LI Bus has a significant investment in CNG refueling equipment at their depots - it's probably not depreciated yet.

Its about time that that MSBA gets some buses that look different than Orion Vs! Don't get me wrong I love the Vs, but I absolutley (spelling, im kinda drunk) hate it when a TA has a fleet of identical make and model buses! I sure hope that MSBA gets some articulated buses too, they need them... badly! If they do get them, they might order NFI CNG60LFs (if NFI makes CNGs) Nova LFSAs, or NABI 60s. I kant WAIT to see those new buses!
