Route 202 gets all the old and busted buses, it seems. It's maybe up to 50% in my daily commute.

I do kind of wonder how they schedule buses.  The 7 seemed to have none, then all of a sudden, they only have the new one, I wonder if the buses used changed, or they were installed on the same buses, or if the buses rotate all the time and it's just coincidence.

Regardless, I would hope they're close to finished.

What, you are not tracking the numbers of the buses you are riding?

75% gels with my experience, certainly.

We might have some readership overlap though!

I take the 200 daily, and have only experienced the new machines twice. When I asked a driver about it this morning, his explanation was that "I'm from Cambridge. They haven't done Cambridge yet."

While it may be that 75% are outfitted, it could very well be that the distribution is not even. All the cheese is on one side of the pizza!
