    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    Are 5439 and 5443 2018 units? Not exactly sure since TTMG has them under "2018".

    Possibly. I heard a handful of RTS at ECH are being held onto just in case.

    MTA’s Troubled Travelers: ‘How is this better?’

    I'm not saying this is wrong today, but Byford is pushing for better service, especially in the bus and subway network. Not sure if anyone else was at the Manhattan workshop with Andy, but I was there and in that meeting, Andy Byford greatly expressed that today's network was unacceptable and even indirectly confessed that his group indeed mess up with the Staten Island express redesign. So he is trying his best to improve anything possible.

    Basically confirmed that it's not the same thing. Let's go through more comparisons then. between 149 St and Bowling Green. Already has weekend service so it's not really much of a difference if it was called extra s. (before SAS) between 57 St and Atlantic Av. is already known as the weekend express on Broadway so it makes sense. between 96 St and Metropolitan Av. 6 Av service from Metropolitan Av is most commonly known as . Same thing with between Astoria and Whitehall St as stated above. between Bedford Park and 145 St. First of all how often do we even get the outside of rush hours? Second when was the last time the ran weekends? Another point to bring up is the Yankees/Soccer specials. Do we even get those signed as let alone like that? Most are just "Special".

    between 145 St and Bedford Park (outside of rush hours) between Whitehall St and Astoria (outside of weekdays) Tell me which one is most recognizable to riders.

    Or you can run extra s to 2nd Avenue/9th Avenue and accomplish the same thing.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Honestly it's better to have just MTA as the main decal. The XD40s are ok. Nothing changed. The XN60s are slightly uglier. And the LFSA, well.....

    That's the R62/A.
  13. Sounds like something that would be more or less rerouted Q50s. I personally don't see much ridership unless Co-op residents actually use the route.
