  1. The LFS’ and LFSAs that have arrived since 2015 are all smart buses. The only thing that makes it a smart bus is the electric cooling
  2. Use the transit tracker app. When it's in service, search "23" under the tag "Track a Vehicle" and it'll track that bus. The app works so that later on whenever you tap on the bus, it'll show you where the bus is and what route it's running on if it's in service.
  3. Why do people think the B82 SBS is starting Sunday because one SBS schemed bus ran on the B82 yesterday?... smh
  4. It could go online in a few days, maybe in a few weeks, it varies from time to time. When #5447 first went into service it wasn't trackable until about a week or two later.
  5. It's D60HF #5512, it was renumbered due to the incoming 2018 LFSA order
  6. IIRC it has something to do with traffic conditions at Queens Plaza and on the Queensboro Bridge. They don't want an artic to add more problems in those areas.
  7. They run during the PM rush too. They run from 6 AM to 10 AM and from 3 PM to 7 PM, starting and ending their runs at Bay Plaza and do two round trips during the AM rush and two round trips during the PM rush.
  8. At least one bus has been doing an AM trip on the Bx19 since these first started running.
  9. *Instantly sees that the first and only thing on the map so far is the ridiculous extension...
  10. Not on the XN40s. https://www.nyctransitforums.com/topic/51110-paint-wrap-what-is-it-well-here-is-the-solid-fact-answer/
  11. 720 unwrapped, must be unwrapping more XN40s to get the XN60s in service.
  12. I swear I just saw all of the downtown CPW services on both the local and express tracks during some point on my commute home today...
  13. ^ these are the official ones... It honestly wouldn't kill you to just look things up yourself before asking here, a lot of the things you're asking for could easily be found after a minute of Google searching
  14. Are you joking... Of course kids read ads on the subway... everyone does that
  15. There's track work being done on the express track between 167th and 170th. They probably could use the side track at 167th but they're probably avoiding doing so for some reason...
  16. I figured there shouldn't be so many stops on the Bx9 SBS, since there IS a local variant. I've also taken the Bx9 south of the HH Parkway for the past 4 years, and IMO there doesn't have to be a lot of stops from 262nd to 242nd. However, if I were to revise the stops along Broadway, I'd add a stop at 251st, making the distances between SBS stops along Broadway approx. 0.5 miles apart.
  17. This is how I'd plan the Bx9 SBS if it were to be a thing (which I wouldn't totally be against)... an easy way to avoid the whole Broadway problem is to have there be a Bx9 Local and a Bx9 SBS: The Bx9 Local would run its normal route along Broadway and Kingsbridge Road, and the Bx9 SBS would use Bailey Avenue instead from 225th Street to Van Cortlandt Park South. This way you can avoid having the SBS run underneath the EL and it wouldn't be too far away from Broadway itself (the farthest Bailey Avenue is from Broadway is 1,480 ft and that's only near VCP where the bus probably wouldn't be stopping). Routing would also be the same distance (6.5 miles northbound and 6.2 southbound). Only downside would be that the SBS route wouldn't directly serve the (1) except at 242nd, but at least riders can still take the Bx9 local for Broadway, and this in turn means that the Bx9 SBS wouldn't have to deal with all the Broadway traffic. Stops I'd have for the Bx9 SBS would be (both directions): Tremont Ave And Boston Rd E 180th St and Boston Rd E 180th St and Southern Blvd Southern Blvd and Fordham Rd Fordham Rd and Fordham Plz Kingsbridge Rd and Grand Concourse Kingsbridge Rd and Jerome Ave Kingsbridge Rd and University Ave Kingsbridge Rd and Sedgwick Ave Kingsbridge Rd and Bailey Ave / Heath Ave Bailey Ave and 231st St Bailey Ave and 238th St Broadway and 242nd St Broadway and 254th St Broadway and 262nd St
  18. There's one out today as well. #1426-30 and #1486-1490.
  19. Not all of them, there were at least two sets that went up to Woodlawn today
  20. http://www.silive.com/news/2018/04/double_decker_x17j_to_start_ro.html The Alexander Dennis Enviro500 will start running this week on the X17J, and the MTA has posted times that it'll be running:
