    I was informed yesterday that ulmer park might get one 9300 from lga ( dont know witch # ) & u.p might get another 8900 ^_^ , but the only routes we have are the b1 , b3 , b6 , b3k , x28 , b64 & x27 , we dont need all these buses , like for what reason and i ride by in the morning , lunch time , & towards 5 before the major pull in time , but they put every express bus on the x28 like alll of them are out they put them 3 minutes apart so in the morning and after noon they are back to back non stop until about say 7ish , because thats pull in time and the line is long , & we have alot of buses sitting inside , i would like to see the whole building empty

    UP needs all those buses. Don't forget about the B36 and 74 (mentioned in the above post).

    Well you are right , the bus lines that need the most buses are the 6 & 36 , the b74 only has 3 or 4 buses on that line allday , i just saw 3 on the line right now , in the monring it starts with 3 & toward the after noon goes 4 and then when its about 5 they cut down so itll be 3 again and then when its 9 its 2 buses only and when its 10 30 its only 1 and that last 1 finished up and the last bus is at 11 30

    LGA BETTER not send a damn thing to UP. LGA is badly short as it is now. They CANNOT be any shorter. UP I would hope would send something to LGA in return.

    Nope lol , maybe they might send a 9300 but i doubt it now , we were going up to the 8000s-8900s now so i dont know , i heard 9101-9109 are going to be dumped soon , 9109 & 9309 are looking a bit bad now but i saw 9309 sitting inside today so i guess they are going to fix it and i will suggest to them that they repaint 9309 and 9305 too , lga has 252 buses or less than that ? & they have alot of routes , bp should give their buses to lga theyve only got 5 routes left so thats notthing .

    You guys do not have 8889, 8889 was on the Bx36 this morning, I thought you worked at UP or something. :)
