  1. Put all doors boarding on the animal lines and if right now fare payment on those lines are about 30% it will drop to under 10%.
  2. With fare payment around 20-30% and the attitudes of those passengers on the Q6 the last thing I would put on that route are new Articulated buses. If MTA wants to convert that line to Artics they should just go to the scrap yard and get some of those old Orion Artics to run on that line.
  3. With those new XD60 at JFK will they be for the q10 or is there some truth to the rumor that the god awful Q6 is going Articulated for the winter pick. Next time I'm there i'll check the farebox to see if jfk/far rock routes can be entered on them. On a side note, 5385 replacement engine came in so that bus will probably be back in service soon.
  4. Well since someone said 5385 was out of service here is why. Got hit by a truck on the Van Wyke.
  5. they should put them on the Q6 because almost no one pays.
  6. It was always a problem for the buses to make the right onto 134th from 149 so this change is an improvement. Making that right off the S Conduit is so much easier now. Far as an unsafe stop the crosswalks are right there and during school hours 2 crossing guards are at that location for the children.
  7. Most cars parked in bus lanes have NYPD placards on there dash. I think 3-4 years ago they added rush hour bus lanes on Jamaica ave between parsons blvd and Sutphin blvd and not one day have I ever seen that bus lane clear. All the traffic people do is ticket the one or two cars that are parked without a placard and leave the 30+ cars with NYPD placards alone.
  8. When I use to do that awful q22 in two months five days a week I did not pick up more than say 2-3 passengers a week east of 116st.
  9. I don’t see why all the complaints about rts buses because they were good buses 15 years ago.
  10. I wouldn’t have handed the paper Id to the security guard in the first place and would have denied ever having it.
  11. So I was doing the sbs 52 this morning and this lady came on who I could see before picking her up was at the bus stop with other passengers right next to the fare machines that says over and over get ticket for sbs 52/53. She got on and attempted to use a metro card so I looked at her saying to myself are u kidding me. I guess she saw the no fares collected on board and just walked in. I didn’t say a word because she just walked on in and didn’t say nothing to me. So pulled into a stop and u guess it the eagle team. Their getting ready to give her a ticket and she’s blaming me.
  12. so are we to just imagine how inside looks?
  13. So that’s where 5370 is at, no wonder Jfk is left to running shorties on the q10
