    It CAN in fact go down as an accident. IF, you struck an object such as the sidewalk causing the rim to bend and then in turn causing the air to leak out. So yeah depending on the circumstances, it can be considered an accident.
  3. That's not the point . I was on scene. There was no way that he said he missed the bus at 23rd Street and chased him all the way down to Houston AND caught him. And the news article does not state that the man also did the same thing to 2 more buses just minutes later telling the other drivers that he was chasing them from 23rd St also. This was the only one caught on film. The man clearly needs mental assistance.

    Agreed, also it's very hard to see someone running for the bus in those mirrors. If a person is out of view, we will assume that everyone has boarded and we will leave the stop. (In this case, the operator may have assumed that there weren't many people waiting to board, being that a previous bus has just left the location) We also have strict instructions to leave the stop if passengers are not ready to board with their SBS tickets. Many operators are courteous enough to hold the bus. However, we actually have instructions to leave. To keep the SBS service as rapid as possible. Just some insight i thought I'd share Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk

    This move is gonna shake up a few things in the city. MQ may have to send some Orions over to 100st. Im not sure how many buses the 31 will require.. we all know the RTS will not be sent over there most likely. MQ has trips that deadhead up to 92nd St. So im sure TU will have deadhead trips to 54th St. Relief points will have to be changed up on both routes for convenience reasoning. Lots of bus moves by year end I'm sure. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk

    Most likey if you boarded at the rear, the operator doesn't have control of the sensors. It will close, and re open if it senses someone there, and keeps trying to close... Nonetheless, he could've been more polite. Also he may switch over to Quill when the bid happens. Just to chase the route. (If he likes it that much) Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk

    Hudson pier was on West side hwy and 15th st. Quill is on West side and 40th St. Hudson pier building is still standing, but seems like there is construction going on. And I was the poster who was hearing whispers about the 86 being sent to MQ. I'll tell ya this, lots of operator's are going to Flee TU this winter bid.

    If you saw it on Atlantic and not in service, it could be a DHD from SC on the 103. Observed one with SC decal a few days ago on Atlantic and Hoyt. NIS to Cad Plaza. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk

    SBS 14 after the L train comes back up, should become SBS 14D because the volume of people is plentiful. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
