    can anyone in the know answer why exactly is Superintendent Myers hanging out on 86 street & 4 avenue, apparently targeting S79 operators specifically.. and why road ops & road control are crawling hylan blvd & Richmond avenue.. did something happen in Staten Island Division or on the S79 specifically that has supervision out & about on a Saturday before 11am?

    funny you mentioning this, because i was just mentioning to some younger B/O's today that and sanitation department couldn't give a s**t about tats, dreads, females with wacky hair colors, etc... it all boils down to can you perform the task that the title requires.

    the absolute closest thing this city has to a "true BRT" corridor. The SBS Q53/52 puts all others to shame. there's no other SBS that's comparable at the moment. I'm talking about the medians, the bus lanes and even the chokepoints on the main corridor. and not to mention patronage and the fact that the Q11/21 benefit from the changes. anytime I'm on Woodhaven or Cross Bay, i don't see 11's & 21's late at all.

    the S79 is surprisingly fantastic in my opinion. I've been riding the line to Eltingville recently and it's a great experience, and a quick ride, especially with B/O's who know how to operate. i mean, the headways (especially on weekends) are borderline ridiculous (for a "SBS" run) but i enjoy it personally. i wouldn't mind doing a run on the 79 if i get up the nerve to transfer to Staten Island

    Yeah, i noticed that. Person asked (or addressed) it twice: here & in another thread.

    Same rules apply for B/O's, by the way.

    We ALL know people need to CUT IT OUT every time a blasted RTS shows up at MTV. It's been addressed. There's no one who's that delusional of a foamer that can't grasp the concept that NYCTA/MaBSTOA doesn't want RTS's at MTV... I mean, really?

    I'm gonna take a "wild guess" (seeing as it is common knowledge on this forum that Management doesn't want RTS's housed at MTV on a permanent basis, and has been repeatedly addressed an exuberant amount of times) that it was a friggin loaner... I mean, i could be wrong.

    I can't honestly answer that. TWU & Bus Company (TWU and ATU) don't designate runs as MISC like Staten Island or TA Queens. Regardless if it's a straight run, terminal interline or swing interline, each line gets it's own header number if any of the lines runs interline (grand Ave for example uses 0 thru 9 headers for all their runs and 151 for B32 runs) as opposed to each line having the straight runs designated as '0'

    Exactly. Also to add on to this, what i mean by run design is that if you picked run 004 on the B14, with a first half B17, TA can definitely flip it with a first half B14, and call it run 104 on the B17, with the same run time, same total miles, same swing time, same actual total hours behind the wheel, etc

    It depends on the operator's seniority & the availability of the run. Also, it depends on what the operator wants to pick. If you have enough seniority, yes you most certainly can pick the same run (or run design) pick to pick. In the case of express operators, I've been told that picks aren't as cutthroat as the local run boards.

    I've seen 2 XD40's on the SBS Q53 (one deadheading to beach 116 & one in service) Is LaGuardia Depot beginning to pull artics off the road for tonight's supposed snow shower?

    Smh i remember a few years back in Manhattan division, they were on a proper signage trip... This is the first I've heard of it recently tbh.. with the things some operators are getting away with uniform wise, I'm borderline shocked they'd bitch out over code usage these days

    Not necessarily true. There are some operators who used to work MaBSTOA, particularly Kingsbridge who remember the Bx13 Yankee Stadium code (313_... I forget it at the moment) the bx13 and bx6 both have Yankee stadium codes, btw so it definitely could be an intentional code entry
