  4. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority held its retirement ceremony for its oldest high-floor bus, the Rapid Transit Series, better known as the RTS right at front of headquarters at 2 Broadway, NY, NY. The agency tested a demo of this bus model back in 1979. The RTSs started their service in New York City in 1981, ranging from various bus manufactures such as GMC, TMC, and Novabus. For 38 years, this bus model has brought joy and memories. On April 30th, 2019, the RTSs made the final runs in NYC. New York City is the last city in the world to have these childhood behemoths. Please enjoy this video as honor and cherish the Rapid Transit Series.

  7. This lengthy video is a commemoration of the IRT Flushing Line also known as the "International Express", which started service in Queens 102 years ago on April 21st, 2019. What makes this line so special is that it uses 11 cars, the 2nd subway line to have Communiations-Based Train Control(CBTC) (1st in the IRT division). The line was ranked the best by the straphangers campaign in 1997-2000; 2009-2010; 2014-2016. The week before, a photo of a newly manufactured R211 subway car appeared on reddit.com. Here is a commentary explaining the full details of the car orders, and the subway lines they'll run on. This commentary is based on the upcoming planned service changes involving the subway line, as well as two new free bus routes; B91 and B92.
  8. Last year in 2018, I attended the New York International Auto Show. There were a lot of hot new fancy cars that were showcased this past year. There were also a 0 to 60 MPH speed test with the Toyota Camrys and a roughness test with the Jeep Cherokees. I cannot wait to see what this year's auto show will bring. This year's NY Auto Show will take place on April 19th-28th, so go out there and see the new cars. Please enjoy.
