I see you have a lot of fuzzy dates, but this does seem to confirm what one saw on the streets that definitely these were delivered out of order, and those around 6470 and up came before most of the before then, and 77th also had some in the 6540s or so that later got shifted to Archer.

Again, this may be based on fuzzy memory, but I seem to remember the kind of mish-mash around Christmas 2000, but maybe it was around Spring 2001.

Your records also don't seem to have much of a gap between option 1 and option 2 (6708/6709). Again, my recollection (from the street) was that the base and Option 1 overlapped, because the base was supposed to be delivered in 2000, but much of it wasn't. That was when the administration said that they were trying to spread out the orders so that about 150-175 buses would be delivered each year, but only Option 2 seems to have been so treated. There were questions posted on various internet forums at the time about when the rest of the order was supposed to be delivered, but afterwards it appears that that order was pretty tightly spaced between Mar. and Sept. 2002

BTW, do your in service dates reflect training buses; i.e. that I saw 6712 at Forest Glen before it was put on a Chicago route?

Alot of buses came in way out out of sequence, mostly the 77th ones, I remember #6540 - #6549 were around at 77th from just about the beginning. There were also others in the beginning in odd spots like #6519 at 77th or #6604 at Chicago. As far as #6712, these are in service dates, dates the buses were first in service, so if a bus trained somewhere that's not reflected in my list. Probably the biggest question mark for the list would be the buses (pre #6708) I have as released 3/29/2002. My actual list has those released during the post #6709 era. I edited those dates back to 3/29 as that was when the #6709's showed up and I felt those dates were in error. Probably it would've been more accurate to say they came in around November or October 2001. As that is when I feel they most likely came in. I seem to remember a gap between the options. Other than this one issue the lists should be pretty accurate.

I've got a fuzzy memory of at least a couple buses each in the 6560s and 6570s showing up briefly at 77th on such routes as the 29 State and the 2 Hyde Park Express before Archer had Novas assigned to it.

At least in late 2001, Chicago routes (I remember particularly Fullerton) were about 1/3 each of Nova, RTS, and Flx. After I saw the two training buses at FG, all the sudden Chicago routes started getting the 6709 and up buses, then mostly notable for having orange signs that were basically only triangles or Christmas trees, and lost the RTSs

FG's started about 6756, and I remember during deliveries seeing a bunch come off the expressway (Lawrence and Kennedy).

Sounds like what happened with #6712 according to your above statements, was that the bus was sent over in advance of the #6709 debut to train Fg on that type of equipment knowing that they would receive exactly the same bus in the future. BTW, If you look closely at the Fg garage list you'll see I have #6756 debuting on the #36 Broadway. That was very briefly a NP bus at the time. They got about 4 or 5 buses in the high #6750's for a few weeks. The other buses did debut at FG though before they were loaned out that's why there not listed on a NP route.

Today I updated the #6400 series Nova bus lifetime assignments up to the current date, So I just need to update the #1000, #800, #900 series now. And then maybe I can work on some "L" assignments for the #2400's and get us a #2600's list on here.

Yes I know. The thing is that Bushunter did not put 6868 on his list.

Probably cause he has other things outside of this forum.  You could see about becoming a moderator for this if it bugs you that much

True, but probably a bad idea.
