  1. Not sure if artics can be put on the current M10 route, due to the terminal at 159. The buses make a U-turn for their southbound trip coming from north. Itll be pretty tight turn. I agree with you on the M104 terminal. At times, that 41st block is jammed up with cars because they couldn't turn right on 42nd or for whatever other reason.
  2. 3939 bus has the announcements turned on. It's on M10 right now. Announcements are pretty spot on. Only front screen works, rear is blank. Only grip I have about it is that it says 'underscore' inbetween transfer buses.
  3. Assaults happen more often than you think. Bus can not move with an open stroller. Regardless of confronting the women or not.
  4. FYI. Service Change Posted: 10/16/2018 10:18AM B68 buses are detoured because of construction on Neptune Av and Stillwell Av. Detour is as follows: Stillwell Terminal-bound: Via Brighton Beach Av, left on W 5 St, right on Surf Av, right on Stillwell Av, right on Mermaid Av and then resume their regular route. Corresponding stops will be made along detour route. It's probably all jammed up in that area.
  5. 3841 from MV seems to have clever devices screen installed. Pilot for MV?
  6. Now that's one sexy new flyer.
  7. Most of the time, console would rather keep the bus in service with a broken farebox than to take the bus OOS and mess up service. Buses would get swapped mid-route usually.
  8. Yes. I've done M3 my last pick, which is my favorite line. No concerns particularly with the turn around point. Only thing the buses have to do is a U-turn to layover going S/B. To do this U-turn without having to reverse the bus, most bus operators hop the sidewalk - which if you ever see that sidewalk, it's all cracked and damaged lol.
  9. Couldn't agree anymore. Poor kid just wants to be like any other kid and go to school with his friends. These so called 'fans' should mind their business, especially when it comes down to personal matters.
  10. Heh.. wouldn't be the first time - i'll say. *facepalm
  11. If an operator mistakenly misunderstood instructions, placed up a SUBWAY SHUTTLE sign, and only stopped at subway connecting bus stops. He would make a lot of round trips going back and forth as there is only 6-7 stops. It may seem like a good amount of buses are doing it, but really it's just that one same bus going back and forth. Again, it's on a memo, black and white - issued by management that this is only supplement service to the M10 between 125th and 59th. IMO operator probably didnt even read and did as he thought.
  12. Not sure where you're getting the fact that ALL of them are doing it. If all of them were doing it, the Post wouldnt make it such a big deal being it as a 'ghost bus' or real occasion. Just yesterday, ive seen the signage on the shuttles as 125th and 59th respectively.
  13. Mistake on the operators part. No idea why he thought it's a subway shuttle. In the depot crew room, it states it as an M10 supplement service and to service all stops between 125th and 59th st. Even on the memo, it states to use M10 signage. Also the supplement shuttles right now are using M10 signage. Not suppose to be using SUBWAY SHUTTLE or TO SUBWAY.
