  1. Someone sent the image to the MTA’s Twitter account and the MTA apparently shared it with the NYPD as well
  2. 4791 is at UP, 4794-4798 is still at Gun Hill, and 4799 has been out of service because of a fire that occurred about a year or two ago
  3. Unless I missed it, where would your route terminate in the Bronx?
  4. It might have actually gone up to Concourse. There have been three 10-car sets laid up for a while, and today there was an 8-car set alongside them, which wasn't there on Wednesday.
  5. The pilot for the new 2020 Prevost order, #1300. It was stated on the last page.
  6. 5441 is now in the local scheme, saw it along Fordham Road today.
  7. On a side note, the Q60 has one artic out on the line (#6240 if anyone’s interested)
  8. Actually, some of those Manhattan trips actually DO make the whole trip. Today's Bx12 SBS MJQ runs (#6107 and #6227) went from Bay Plaza to Inwood, and started again at Fordham Plaza heading Bay Plaza. But yeah, most of them are short turns. If I could fix your list up a bit, the typical weekday trips actually look like this: Bx1/Bx2 (MJQ) - Mott Haven to and from Fordham Rd Bx3 (MHV, MJQ) - Washington Heights to and from Kingsbridge Road (a few trips go up to Riverdale) Bx4 / A (WF) - Usually interlines with the Bx40 / 42 trips Bx9 (WF, MCH, OH) - West Farms / Riverdale to and from 225th Street & Bway (The trips will often run from either end of the route to 225th and then go back, or will just make the entire trip) Bx12 / SBS (MJQ, MHV) - Usually make the whole trip but some trips end at University Avenue or Fordham Plaza Bx15 (WF, OH) - 149 st to and from Fordham plaza Bx28 (MHV, MCH) - Co-Op City to and from Norwood, with some trips going all the way to Fordham Center (the first day these loans started, an XD60 from OH ran on the line) Bx41 / SBS (WF, MCH) - 149st to and from Fordham Plaza Bx40 / 42 (WF) - Whole route The weekend loans are a lot more interesting. One weekend, Staten Island did some trips. Another weekend it was Manhattan, and last weekend it was West Farms (an XN40 ran on the Bx7 and on the Bx28).
  9. And make the and lines even MORE crowded in the middle of a pandemic with those displaced riders?... Great idea! (not)
  10. 7087 and 7078 so far, they're only on the Bx15, but more could pop up on other routes.
  11. Looks like the Bronx is getting a ton of loans. LFSA 5524 is on the Bx1, 5596 was on the Bx12 SBS, 6057 is on the Bx28, and a few more
  12. The XE40s have shown up on the M11 in the past if you weren't aware. Here's a video of one
  13. As of the 13th, 5439 is still in the SBS scheme, and 5441 hasn't seen service since it left Flatbush. The XD40s at Flatbush are a different case, as they won't be going back into regular SBS service, and there's already a local scheme variant of the XD40s. The two Novas at Kingsbridge could easily get moved somewhere else and be placed back into SBS service, or those Novas at Flatbush could come to Kingsbridge, only time will tell I guess. As far as I know, there isn't a local scheme wrap available for the LFSA smartbus (not that it wouldn't be easy to make, just a little manipulation of the blue LFS scheme and boom, done) But hey, anything's possible. I put my 2 cents in but at the end of the day, this is the MTA we're talking about. As always, the best course of action here is to wait and see.
  14. They're still in the SBS scheme, and will most likely stay that way. There's really no reason for them to even be in the local scheme. The rest of the 2016-2019 LFSA fleet are in the SBS scheme, and it doesn't make much sense to wrap those two buses in a local scheme, if there's a really good chance they're probably end up back in the SBS scheme. Besides, they were "supposed" to go to Gun Hill, but Kingsbridge is fighting to keep them. And the argument that "having them in the SBS scheme would confuse riders" is moot, as none of the Kingsbridge routes have an SBS variant nor do they run alongside an SBS route, with the exception of the Bx9 which run with the Bx12 SBS, However, the Bx9 stops on Fordham Road are across the street from the Bx12 SBS stops, so there won't be much confusion there if an SBS wrapped bus shows up on the Bx9. TL;DR 5439 and 5441 don't need to be placed in the local scheme for any reason so they most likely won't be.
  15. Not really. When they ran the up to Burnside, uptown and trains were stopping on the middle track at 149th, so they wanted to avoid terminating trains at 149th holding up 's.
  16. If anyone was still wondering, #5439 and #5441 are still in the SBS scheme.
  17. That’s the Amtrak to/from Penn Station that travels along the West Side Highway and meets up with the Hudson Line north of Spuyten Duyvil.
