1999 Orion V
5705-5725

 
  • In December 1999, 5707 was involved in an accident where it was damaged beyond repair, and therefore never lived to see its life after its first year.
  • On October 22, 2002, bus driver Conrad Johnson was driving 5705 on a Silver Spring route when at one bus stop, the DC serial killers (known as The Snipers) fatally shot Johnson as he sat on the driver's seat.
  • As of January 2015, only two remain in service. Those buses are 5708 and 5711, while a few others (5709, 5714, 5715, and 5724) are used for training.
