    Joe Lhota OUT as chairman

    It a damn shame because out of all the MTA chairmans that the agency had, I liked him the most. I wish Joe Lhota well in all of his other jobs.
  4. Subscribe to the Hub today and enjoy these clips down below. Seen here are the 2017 New Flyer XD60 Xcelsiors on the M15 Local, M101 Limited, M102, and M103 bus routes. These clips in the video collectively were taken last year. The units in the video belong to Manhattan's bus division Tuskegee Airmen depot. The depot also provide AM Rush Hour trips for the M14A* and M14D* bus routes. *NOTE: Michael J. Quill now has some local XD60 Xcelsior buses of their own for the M14A/D routes. Seen here are the 2017 New Flyer XD60 Xcelsior on the Bx5, Bx12 Local, Bx22, and Bx41 Local bus routes. The following clips in this video were taken last year. Please be advised that these buses are no longer at Gun Hill. Most of the buses there, or if not, all of them, were deputized for +SBS duty and are operating out from the Michael J. Quill bus depot. Please enjoy this nice 2017 XD60 bus action from the Bronx.

    2016 Novabus LFSA Smartbus #5439

    The 2016 Novabus LFS Articulated Smartbus #5439 made its debut back in January 2017. The bus was assigned to the Kingsbridge Bus depot and operated on the Bx1/LTD, Bx2, Bx9, Bx15 (local-weekdays only), and Bx39 bus routes. This bus was in the traditional blue and white scheme. In this video, we will experience #5439 in both the old (blue and white scheme) and the new (blue and gold streaks with the “I LOVE NY” logos on the sides). Another feature this bus has is the WiFi and USB charging ports. It was also the initial (original) start of the 92 bus order of the LFS Artic. This is also the very last bus to have the traditional blue and white scheme before being pulled from service back in May or June 2017. 5439 has made its epic return from Novabus as of October 2018. This bus and the rest of the original 92 bus order all has the new blue and gold streak scheme with the “I LOVE NY” logos on the side. All buses are currently commissioned to +SelectBus duty. 5439 is now at the Michael J. Quill bus depot, now operating on +SBS M23, M34/A, M79, and M86. This unit also has the MTA New York City Bus decal, similar to the ones that we see on some 2018 XD40s and XN60s. Soon, we will look at the 2019 Nova LFS Artics Smartbuses (72 bus order) that’s on the SBS Bx12,Bx41 for Gun Hill as well for the Train Shuttle Bus at Michael J. Quill bus depot. In the meantime, please enjoy.
  6. 86th Street (IND Eighth Avenue Line) is back in full operation after being closed for 6 months for renovation as part of the Enhanced Station Initiative (ESI) program. The station reopened yesterday . It features new entrances with LED info screen, ceramic artwork “Parkside Portals” by Joyce Kozloff, and new gateway entrances. The station is located in the neighborhood of the Upper West Side of Manhattan on Central Park West. Even though this station does not have any USB ports, this station is a whole lot better than 72nd Street. Lastly, this tour can’t be complete without some subway action. Please enjoy the station tour on the 114th anniversary of the New York City Subway.
  7. Seen here are New Flyer D60HF “Galaxy” Articulated Buses ruling the streets of Queens, Manhattan, and The Bronx in New York City. Bus models ranging from 1996 to 2003, these were the first-ever high floor 60ft buses to ever graced the city. The routes these buses operated on were the Q7, Q10, Bx4, Bx9, Bx12 Local, Bx15 LTD Bx41 Local, M14*, M15 Local, M23*, M79*, M102, & M103 bus routes in this video. Over the years from 2012 until now, these buses were renumbered due to incoming LFSAs and XD60s taking over their original numbers. Catch these buses while you still can because they are only 65 units left and counting. Please enjoy these buses before they’re gone.
  8. Seen here are the clips of Orion VIIs 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, & 2nd Gen CNGs ruling the streets of New York City. Information is in the video clips. Please enjoy and sub to the Hub channel today.
  9. 72nd Street (IND Eighth Avenue Line) is back in full operation after being closed for 6 months for renovation as part of the Enhanced Station Initiative (ESI) program. The station reopened last week Friday . It features new entrances with LED info screen, ceramic artwork “SKY” by Yoko Ono , and new gateway entrances. The station is located in the neighborhood of the Upper West Side of Manhattan on Central Park West. Out of all of the rehabilitated stations in Manhattan, this one is the most disappointing. Once again, there’s no USB ports on the side of the LCD info screens, some sections of the downtown platform was boarded up as well as the 71st entrance of the station. Lastly, this tour can’t be complete without some subway action. Please enjoy the station tour. Please subscribe to the Transportation Hub YouTube channel for more hot, fresh content.

  12. 163rd St-Amsterdam Av (IND Eighth Avenue Line) is back in full operation after being closed for 6 months for renovation as part of the Enhanced Station Initiative (ESI) program. The station reopened this past Thursday at 12 noon. It features new entrances with LED info screen, artwork containing, and new gateway entrances. The station is located in the neighborhood of Washington Heights. I like the expanded artwork of the station, but once again, no USB ports on the side of the LCD info screens. Lastly, this tour can’t be complete without some subway action; R32 and R160 Trains, with the serving the station during late nights. Please enjoy the station tour.
  13. Three years ago today, the 34th Street-Hudson Yards for the IRT Flushing (7)(7X) Line was opened for regular subway service for the public. Nearly three years later, the second entrance of the 3-year old station, located on 35th Street and Hudson Blvd was opened in the vicinity of the Hudson Yards developments on September 1st, 2018. This is the video tour of the second subway entrance for the station. It’s the same as the first entrance on 34th and Hudson, minus the agent booth. Please enjoy and subscribe to the Hub today. Two Subway Stations In Manhattan Returns To Service After Repairs and Renovations
  14. After 17 long years, the Cortlandt Street-World Trade Center Station on the Line is back in action! As we all know, the station got destroyed during the 9/11 attacks. The entire World Trade Center site had to be rebuilt before the destroyed station was touched. The WTC Oculus Transportation Hub was completed in 2016, connecting PATH, , , , , , , , & Lines at the Fulton Center, , & at Park Place, & at Chambers Street, at World Trade Center, and the & Lines at Cortlandt St. As of 9/8/2018, the Cortlandt Street-World Trade Center Station on the Line reopened for business at 12 noon. Inside the station is truly beautiful and breathtaking. The artwork, which I love, is from both the Declaration of Independence and the Declaration of Human Rights. In this video, you will experience first hand of the artwork of the re-commissioned station, the oculus both inside and out, the subway entrances/lines serving the oculus, the WTC tower, and the 9/11 memorial museum. Originally, this station was supposed to open in December 2018, but thanks to the resilient leadership of the MTA staff, this station completed work and opened 3 months earlier, just in time for Patriot Day. All stations and lines that link the oculus really contemplates the transportation mode in Lower Manhattan. Rebuilding this station really shows the resiliency and strength that we have as New Yorkers. We may get knocked down but we rise back up, stronger than before. So please enjoy this video tour, as we remember and honor those who lost their lives on that tragic day and the first responders who gave the ultimate sacrifice. 9/11, NEVER FORGET.

  15. Hello and welcome back to Buses Evolution! In this installment. In this episode, we take a look at a tale of two New Flyer Xcelsior CNG newbies, the XN40 #677 and the XN60 #1027 on the Bx19 bus route @ West 145th St and Riverside Drive near Riverbank Park. Both bus models have a Cummins Westport ISL-G engine with a ZF EcoLife 6AP1200B transmission and are housed and maintained by both Jackie Gleason (Brooklyn) and West Farms (The Bronx) bus depots. These newbies are also replacing all Orion VII CNGs. The XN40s are 2016-2017 units with 138 buses (673-810) available and are operating on all local routes from both depots. The XN60s are 2018 units with 110 buses (1000-1109-on order). They operate on the Bx6* +SBS, Bx15, Bx19**, and Bx36** bus routes for West Farms and the B35 bus route in Brooklyn. * The Bx6 Local will achieve full articulation in January 2019. **The Bx19 and Bx36 are projected +SelectBus routes. Pick your bus: Which one do you prefer? Hello and welcome to the first-ever installment of Buses Evolution! In this installment, we take a look at unit #7662. As of March of this year, the first-ever 7662, the 2003 Orion VII CNG, that ruled the streets of Brooklyn, was retired. It was originally at NYCT's Jackie Gleason Depot, then it went over to MTA Bus Company's Spring Creek Depot to operate on the B100 & B103 Limited last year May. It was powered by a Detroit Diesel Series 50G EGR 8.5L (CNG fuel) with an Allison B400R5 WTEC III transmission. The new 7662, the 2018 New Flyer XD40 Xcelsior, is a +Select Bus Service+ unit currently assigned to Flatbush Depot's B46 +SBS. This unit and the other units (with some units being assigned to +SelectBus duty) are all a part of the 367 bus order can and will be seen in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. These buses feature Wi-Fi and USB charging ports, that was non-existent in older buses. This bus is powered by a Cummins L9 engine with an Allison B400R6 Gen V transmission. Taken back in 2015. Seen here is an 1998 Novabus RTS-06 #5009 On The M12 Bus Route @ West 57th Street and Broadway, heading towards West Village-Abingdon Square, as its southern terminus. On August 31st, 2014, as part of the agency’s bus service enhancement, the M12 was implemented to provide north-to-south service on Manhattan’s west side, via 11th and 12th Avenues. Service operates all day, except late nights between Midtown West (W. 58th St/Broadway-Columbus Circle) and Abington Square (8th Ave/Jane St), running every 30 minutes. Route is dispatched from the Michael J. Quill Depot.
