    MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

    Can someone check the status of 5766? Saw it driving around with the tailpipe cover missing. Not that big of a deal but it did stand out.

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    602 has Transit decals so it's a two-way street.

    Slowly the 600s at CP are getting them. 600, 601(which ran over an MTA worker today) and 602 I believe.

    I was eavesdropping on a convo between two C/P operators and one of them said they had to refuel their buses at WF because the CNG pumps at CP were frozen. Apparently, it’s a somewhat commin practice for them. Poor guy, his shift just ended too and he was 2 blocks away from the depot. Doesn’t this add way more mileage to the bus? Turns out om his way back, they got the pumps working again. Oh! The irony

    Do CP operators need to be trained to operate the Orion 7’s or are the runs covered by the other depot in which they are loaned from? How does this whole process work? Starting from the loaner leaving from the original depot.

    Preliminary WiFi Retrofit Buses

    Cool. Saw #8438 outta JA had WiFi sticker on it. Some buses already have WiFi activated without the sticker, I believe some GH Nova LFS.
  11. One time had this really old guy doing the Q3 to JFK and he would always forget to close the doors. He was well past his prime and prob past the retirement age but he kept forgetting to close them over and over. We could go for blocks at a time with the doors open and sometimes a passenger would say "Hey! Your doors are open!".

    WTF is going on at CP??

    Yep! A lot of CP drivers are ridiculous. They like to speed around and flag people out of nowhere. One time I was standing at the corner of Main and Northern and a Q65 flew by, (mind you it wasn't LIMITED nor packed either), a lady just threw her arms up in disgust. I firmly believe they don't get as much training as NYCT bus op's. NYCT op's are much more professional and will almost always stop at yellow lights but CP op's chance it but most of the time they make it.

    They definitely run another route after. I believe that specific eagle Roosevelt Ave short-turn you mentioned does a run on the Q66 right after. There's definitely some interlining going on but I do see some drivers starting out there day on the Q34, then shifting to other routes as well esp. Q25/34/65 in Jamaica. They could move to the Q23 as well as I've heard some dispatcher talk.

    I don't know if anyone mentioned this but I noticed on C40LF #650, they also installed passenger counters aside from the new info screens.

    Repainted seat on the A train

    They didn't bother SMSing the train though. The floor pattern isn't even black and white,
