What are the dates for the last Green Lines, Triboro, Jamaica, and Command newlooks ran?
I don't really expect anyone to know but when I found out the last newlook was retired by the TA in the summer of '95 I was behind the times by a few months and very surprised that one had lasted into 1995.

The private bus lines had GM fishbowls built by Canadian GM GMDD as late as 1982, so they probably lasted at least until the late 1990's

The NY Bus service did the Green and Triboro ones were from '79. The last I remember seeing Green Lines newlooks in Rockaway was about the summer of 1994. I certainly do not recall seeing them after 1994. And I purposely excluded NY Bus because I know they ran until 2005 or early '06. Someone can clarify that exact date please.
