    Brooklyn Division Bus Proposals/Ideas

    The Short turn B15 to Drew St is the B10 route rebranded 🤔
  2. If the TA Employees were getting ticketed this wouldn't have made the news that's the issue here...😒 However, I do agree that Flatbush Depot need some upgrades or be rebuilt altogether but that's for another discussion #next case...

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    While on my way home this morning it was relief to see Manhattan Bound service was restore to the local stops... However as I when down to Kings Hwy from Avenue I could see what looks like 4-Car Conductor Broads on the Manhattan bound side... IDK What to think but I'll have to check to see If they placed the same broads up on the Coney Island side from Ditmas to Stillwell...

    We have the Proterra Catalyst® E2 Battery-Electric (BE40) however E2 and E2max have different operating ranges making them different models.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    I wasn't aware of that... all I did was comment on the fact that I saw the 1072 in SBS scheme and Before yesterday I thought 1000-1015 were the SBS scheme buses for the Bx6 SBS. But thanks for your clarification.

    So I'm going to assume that this 8504 is just the first pilot without "the new Hi-visibility operator's window" and that a second 8504 will be made with the redesign.

    R179 Discussion Thread

    "10-car testing scheduled for 1st Quarter 2018" I wonder if a new 10-car set will be entering service between now and march...and which line will it be debuting on lol? Side note @Cait Sith someone had posted a link to the board meeting materials and this was included; but given the TA's track record everything is subject to change...

    R179 Discussion Thread

    2930-3049 was m2fwannabe's idea on how to number the additional cars we got from the settlement, nothing Official. Btw knowing how lazy the MTA can be at times they might just add the extra 16 to what they had before to get the R179 fleet numbers 3010 to 3325...relax just my speculation nothing Official...lol

    Nova Bus/Prevost News & Current Events

    As it's stated Nova LFS "Signature look" Created a blind spot on the driver side hence the change in design for the Phase 2 deliveries of our upcoming LFS 40 & 60. However I got to give effort where its due on the MTA's part for requesting such a change in this Model. I mean in my opinion that "signature look" was a design flaw from day one; crazy how the other consumers of the Nova LFS never cared enough to request this change sooner...I thought one of Volvo/Nova's goal was "SAFETY" so how this design lasted this long is remarkable. On the bright side however I personal think this is a step in the right direction for Nova, hopefully they take it a step further and update the front end on a 5th gen LFS, lol ....
