1997-1998 Orion Vs
4200-4412

Rehab number list:

  • Introduced around 1997-1998, these Orion Vs are WMATA's first buses to originally be painted in the third generation scheme. They also feature Detroit Diesel series 50 engines/Allison B400R5 transmissions.
  • Originally equipped with Vultron signs, they were replaced by Luminator Horizon LED signs around 2004-2005.
  • Buses 4388-4412 feature high-back suburban seating. 4390-4395 were equipped with luggage racks for the B30 airport route service, as of 2010 they were replaced by newer buses for the B30 and thus no longer have the luggage racks.
  • In early 2012, several of these buses have began the process of retirement, while most of the others were held in reserve. When the 2000 Orion VIs were pulled off the streets in May due to constant fires, the reserved buses were brought back to the streets.
