  1. It's been a minute forums but driving past LGA Airport lately I notice it looks like the PANYNJ has brought back some of the 1991 New Flyer D40LFs they use to run, I guess while all the construction goes on. They are in the current Port scheme and a few look like they got new Twinvision signs. Port painted them in the current scheme before retirement, I don't know if they were put in storage and now taken out or if Port got back some of the buses they sold to Golden Touch for the JFK employee shuttles? Golden Touch is not the contractor running them unless things have changed.

     

    Or are these newly purchased D40s?? They did look like the 91s on the outside and the inside that I could see, one of em had no signs at all. These buses have 6V92TAs and that would be something to see back on the road, at least outside JFK...


  2. What's with College Point getting all of these old Staten Island MCIs? Those buses should be scrapped.  I'm familiar with most of these having rode them when I lived on Staten Island, and I pity the passengers that will have to deal with the sunken in seats and nails sticking them in the @ss.  Not a fun ride. 

    Nails huh Maybe you should get hit by one... You got it good with transit and we all do here in NY so enjoy the ride or GET A CAR

  3. No. n20 still don't have G/H program yet.

    Speaking off n20, 13:15 n20G Flushing got stuck on snow pile when I was coming out off Station Branch Library at Great Neck.

    Since I had orange reflector vest and since I was expert with helping and directing traffic, while bus driver, supervisior and one resident were plowing snows out from inside the bus. While they were during the snow removal, since I was waiting for that n20G back to Flushing, I direct traffic to go around the station plaza.

     

    NYS PL 190.25

     

    A person is guilty of criminal impersonation in the second degree when

    he:

    3. (A) Pretends to be a public servant, or wears or displays without

    authority any uniform, badge, insignia or facsimile thereof by which

    such public servant is lawfully distinguished, or falsely expresses by

    his words or actions that he is a public servant or is acting with

    approval or authority of a public agency or department; and (B) so acts

    with intent to induce another to submit to such pretended official

    authority, to solicit funds or to otherwise cause another to act in

    reliance upon that pretense.

     

    Saying this as someone whos been through the bs police and court system in Nassau (I thought the city was bad) you should probably just stop pretending you're someone you're not and get a job already.

  4. Who said any of what you just typed????? Nova still has to deliver 400 buses..... The first option was Given to New Flyer.... No one anywhere said New Flyer was better... Or that they would get "All" of anything other than the XN40 order..... So what exactly are you talking about bro??

    Some group said Nova is getting the largest option order and they're gonna start in the 7800s and build up to 87xx.

     

    It seems like the TA finds the NF to be a better product so far and is inclined to order more from them which is why I was surprised to hear that.


  5. I thought you were a student, not a worker (taxpayer)... Cute nevertheless...  :lol:

     

    Nova Bus is a joke.  The buses are ugly and cheap looking, and the AC on those buses is almost non-existent.  

     

    They should take that 400 or so bus order from them and give it to New Flyer.  Much better looking buses.

    I make money and I pay taxes to this city and state.

     

    Nova is a f*cking joke but there's no excuse to just bypass the processes we have set out to protect the taxpayers... The MTA inspector general should look into this order
