The Hybrid Power Switch

Some of the city's less reputable citizens down Hunter's Point way seem to have discovered that you can turn off an Orion VII bus by flipping a switch that's easily accessible from outside the vehicle.

So what is this switch? I hate it when the bad guys know something I don't. The actual service manual doesn't seem to be online, but you can check out this emergency training manual for the location of "The Switch," (Page 13) as well as various breakers and other doodads around the bus.

Nice.

By the way, NYC uses very similar buses, and I've checked, and they have a very similar switch in more or less the same location, and just as easily accessible. But nobody seems to be turning off passing buses, even in the ghetto. I wonder what this says about the two cities.
