    Depots (Major Projects Only)

    Starting January 2015, several bus depots in all 5 boroughs had began or continued in-house rehabs to modernize the facilities, increase productivity, and lower costs.

    East New York - Currently in the construction stage is a brand new state-of-the-art facility for the merged bus operations of NYCTA and MTABC. The new building will be located and constructed at the East New York Bus Depot site, which currently serves as MTA's Surface Transit Operations Headquarters. This facility will feature brand new bus dispatch capabilities which will be merged with MTABC, as all buses across the fleet will have their radios replaced for one common system. This will begin the much awaited official merger of New York City Transit's TA and OA divisions with that of MTA Bus Company. All buses will also have their fare-boxes replaced for units that will be common to both Transit and Bus Co.

    Jamaica - Construction of the new Jamaica Depot is now in the first phase of planning. These discussions include the finalization of the location, the acquisition of property, site preparation, and the overall design of the new depot. The official project completion date is not known as the planning has just begun. It is now being said that the existing depot will be demolished, and a new expanded building will be replaced in the current location along with newly purchased property adjacent to lot to facilitate expansion.

    Posted by The Real on 27 July 2012 - 12:04 PM

    Hello everyone,

    This is the beginning of a series of photos I will be posting back from when I was a teen and first started shooting bus photos with disposable and point & shoot 35mm cameras, before digital..back when you didn't know if you F$&#ed up a photo until AFTER you spent your money developing the roll of flim (God the hobby was so much more expensive back then). So sit back and Enjoy!

    #607214 The big boys are finally here...

    Posted by Acela Express on 10 November 2012 - 01:52 AM

    ... at Flatbush.
    3 LFSAs were transferred from Quill this evening - 5827, 5830, and another LFSA.

    From what I was told, the Far Rockaway branch of the A train will be down for the next 6 months to undergo repairs from devastation of Hurricane Sandy. They will be running shuttle buses to and from the Rockaways from selected depots, with Flatbush being the closest for access to the Rockaways from Brooklyn.

    We're expected to have 3 more later on tomorrow (Saturday).
    And I heard we're to have a total of 20, for now. I'll find out more as I hear it.

    Training starts this weekend; I'll be taking one of the classes before my run starts Sunday evening.

    edit: I'll try to get in early for some pics in backyard with all 6 LFSAs, if possible.

    #767882 Give Reputation When It's Due

    Posted by Harry on 30 April 2014 - 09:27 PM

    As you already know by popular demand the negative rep was disabled in the system.  This post is just to remind you guys to give rep when it's due.  In the photo and video topics there are guys that take the time to share their transit photos with us.  Give rep when its due.  In the general transit threads there are guys that take the time to write out thoughtful and informative posts about anything and everything.  In the transit employment topics there are transit personnel that take the time to help out future transit prospects and other employees in training.  Give rep when its due.  This post even goes to me too.


    There are a lot of you guys who are already giving reps when its due and we thank you.
