  1. So Stringer rented a prop bus to film his commercial? I wonder if the MTA didn’t allow him to film on an active bus. Or he didn’t want to risk real people yelling at him lol.

  3. There is already a painted bus lane, but it's usually blocked by the same cops who are supposed to enforce it.

  4. Just to give you guys an idea on the job so far, I started in the summer of 2018 ( list number 3xx) Been in the A division since I start, and after almost 3 years I was finally able to pick. Me personally, I didn’t mind being XX. You make money from being on board, especially at being at the top of the XX list. People are retiring but not fast enough. One of the benefits of having a picked job now is that I will barely have to deal with screw office now. Good luck to all the future new hires.

  6. From doing my research on the TTMG website, the list of Depots for MTA Bus are as follows: -Baisley Park Depot (Queens) (former Jamaica Bus Lines) -College Point Depot (Queens) (former Queens Surface Corporation) -Eastchester (Bronx) (former New York Bus Service) -Far Rockaway Depot (Queens) (former Green Bus Lines) -JFK Depot (Queens) (former Green Bus Lines) -LaGuardia Depot (Queens) (former Triboro Coach) -Spring Creek Depot (Brooklyn) (former Command Bus Company) -Yonkers (former Liberty Lines Express) If you're interested in reading more about the history of MTA Bus Company, which is less than 20 years old, click here. Good luck!!

  7. Any borough that's MTA bus associated. But if it helps you there's a 80% chance it's going to be Queens. Only 2 depots outside of Queens.

  9. The 151 buses for NJT will likely be the last old-type D's for anyone. MCI is going to insist that any new contracts for NJ Transit (or anyone else) be fulfilled with D45 series buses whether they are the low-entry type or full high floor. Perhaps the only other manufacturer that could do that size contract might be Prevost Car. Prevost at least has a proven product.

  10. Right, so instead of saying "Well some use it because of safety concerns and some use it for convenience/travel time", you jump right to safety as being the reason people use express buses for intraborough travel.

  11. It is not accurate that the reason that people are using SIM routes for intraborough travel is due to safety concerns on the local bus (you brought up Manhattan after the fact, so I'm not going to discuss anything relating to the subway). The reason those people are using the SIM routes for intraborough travel is because those trips are a PITA to make via local bus. Arrochar to Mariners Harbor was much quicker on the X10 to the S48 than by taking the S78 to the S48...and now it's even quicker now that the SIM33C runs directly to Mariners Harbor). Even Arrochar to my neighborhood is much quicker if the express bus is available (since the S93 has to swing up to Victory Blvd and then you have a long walk or a transfer to the S62). On the South Shore, there's people who take the SIM4C within the island. Don't twist my words. I'm not denying that the phenomenon takes place...I'm saying that that it has nothing to do with safety and is related to convenience/travel time. You want to act like someone who is so scared of taking the local bus and make it seem like the vast majority of intraborough express bus riders are in that category when that is simply not the case.

  12. Or he could take the Bx1/2 That is not accurate. This is accurate. Either there is no corresponding local route in that area (e.g. Some portions of the South Shore) or making the trip by local bus would take significantly longer. You never know unless you ask I've taken BM routes between Midtown and Downtown on a regular basis with no issues. (I was at the eastern end of East 23rd Street and didn't feel like backtracking to 23rd & Park) This is true, but specifically for 161st Street, the stop is a couple of blocks off the Concourse, downhill. (Well, uphill if you're heading towards the Concourse) I believe you're mixing up two things. To say whether the express bus is required to make a particular trip significantly easier is different from whether or not the driver allows it. Also the S76/86
