    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.

    Major Updates for bus orders.

     

    • The Prevost express procurement is reported to be running smoothly, with all buses expected to be delivered on scheduled by June 2016 

     

    • The pilot bus for the New Flyer Xcelsior order has reportedly failed its initial audit inspection. This is not uncommon, and should not have any impact of an on-time delivery for the order, which will run through 2016. The first pilot is still expected on MTA property in the coming days.

     

    • The scheduling for award has changed once again for the next bus orders as well. Effective immediately, MTA expects to award all 331 articulated buses at the same time. Originally planed to be split into 2 separate projects, the award is now projected for December at the latest, with the entire MTA Bus fleet to be delivered by March of 2016. This will also include the 45 standard 40 foot buses that will be awarded at the same time as well. Delivery of the first pilots are expected in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2015.

    Actually, Nova NEVER passed an initial audit inspection with the RTS, LFSA or Prevost. Orion didn't pass with any model prior to the EPA 10's either. MTA is the toughest agency in the country to get pass initial audit inspection. The first part of the 2200 series MCI buses failed audit inspection more times than any other bus. To date the smoothest testing for all MTA new bus acceptance programs were the 8600 series RTS, Orion VII E10, and the Prevost test batch. (Note: None of those orders were for more than 104 buses)

    Well then, I'm sorry New Flyer. The way you said it made it seem as if they failed something so simple. Do you know exactly what they get tested on, for the MTA to be so strict?

    Everything that is specified in the RFP specifications, so to put things in context a bus could be failed for something as simple as a sticker missing or in the wrong place.

    New Fleet Numbes:

     

    Prevost 2490-2789

    New Flyer XD40 7090-7365

    Nova LFS 8090-8503

     

    New Flyer Spec change from the previous order include Luminaor Titan destination signs

     

    Everything that is specified in the RFP specifications, so to put things in context a bus could be failed for something as simple as a sticker missing or in the wrong place.

     

    That is 100% correct bro. MTA is that definitely the agency that will fail you for a sticker.
