    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Replacing the CNG Tanks is a very expensive process per bus. It makes much more economical sense to order new buses at a cheaper price.

    MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

    West Farms C40LF 284 has the Vianova Screens.
  3. The Mayor shows his despise for the Transit system through the balloon heads that he appoints to the board, whenever I hear the city's representatives talking their point it just sounds like an opera where they all try to get to the same ideology that the mayor has... Just think about it.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    We were very proud that 9505 came into service, now less than a week its already in a crash.

    Local service will not be decreased for Riverdale, during rush hour only 20% of the runs in a week terminate at 225th street, the bus needs a viable detour because we can't put a "faster service" on a traffic prone street.

    I fixed it for you. I recommend the Bx9 +SBS+ ending at 225 St. There's not a big market for +SBS+ above 225 St, the local is fine making trips to 262 St. Plus +SBS+ would be more than fine running between W Farms Sq-225 St as it is basically doing the busiest stretch of the route.

    It would be nice but when you notice the last NYCT Bus route to receive LTD Service was the Bx36 in 2009. Bus last had it in 2013 for the Q70. Its just a service dead underwater and it is alive as long as those routes don't get cut, or converted to +SBS+ and LIMITED service no longer seems to be an option under the .

    The is just focused on +SBS+ these days... and they aren't stopping any time soon.

    Is no longer on the LIMITED department. New LIMITED service is dead as dog poop at this point.

    That routing could work better than Bailey Avenue. Its kinda redundant on Bailey Avenue with the Bx10.

    Yes, the fleet would be split and Bus Frequencies up in Riverdale would not be reduced. The Bx9 Local and +SBS+ would have their frequencies split, continuing the Bx9 +SBS+ via Broadway would slow it down due to congestion anyway. There would be no Bus Cuts on the Bx9 between 225 St and 262 St.

    The Bx9 +SBS+ has more benefit ending at 225 St-Broadway because it is the busiest stretch, plus having the Bx9 +SBS+ go via Bailey Avenue is useless when you have the Bx10. People in Riverdale would not bother using the Bx9 +SBS+ because it would take them AWAY from Broadway, so if they want to go shopping on Broadway, they will stay with the Bx9 local. Second of all Bailey Avenue is mostly residential so bringing a Bx9 +SBS+ would bring uproar with NIMBY's who wouldn't want a Fare Machine in their sidewalk, let alone another bus route. Finally a Bx9 +SBS+ via Bailey Av would be detremental as you would eliminate all the connections to the South of 242 Street, the purpose of the Bx9 in Riverdale is for people to go on Broadway not away from it. It's more practical terminating the Bx9 +SBS+ at 225 St-Broadway, anyone who wants to go north can transfer to the Bx9 local or the train.

    Damn, is there a specific software for it or do you use in house tools?
