Per SubChat post, all ex-QSC Orions are retired as of February 13. 9905 (ex-473) was the last in service, on the Q66.

Information appears to be wrong, although 9905 seems to be the only one still in service.

This bus won't be in service for long. Is there any reason why #9905 along with #1306 are still in service?

Actually, three Orion V CNGs in service. 9849, 9899, and 9905. Alot of people are expecting the Orion V CNGs to all retire by March 9th, 2014 because of MTA Bus Time begining in Queens. However, since MTA really needs them, they might last until june. And I said MIGHT. So that's that.
