Nassau Inter-County Express 2290-2297
These cutaway buses are NICE's first bus fleet to be painted in reverse livery colors of blue bodies with orange stripes as opposed to orange bodies with blue stripes applied on the Orion VII NG/EPA10 CNG and New Flyer XN40 buses. They were originally purchased for the FLEXI and community shuttle routes, but as many of those routes were cut, they were deployed on NICE's other miscellaneous services (NICE's Link on demand service in Wantagh, NY for example) as well. Because of lower ridership due to the coronavirus as well as vehicle shortages, they were used often on n-number routes in Spring-Fall 2020.
