    MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

    5190 is a funny bus. When it was at LGA it never ran and just sat in the back until roughly a month before it was transferred to grand. It ran there semi-regularly for a short while, but then was sent off to ENY where it also only ran semi-regularly (at least from my observations). Wonder if it had significantly more mileage or mech issues than the other RTS so the depots tried to keep it off the road more?

    So 5239 is on the 34 doing the full route. Happy hunting

    I say that because daily, the same runs would turn at 33 street. Sometimes, buses would also just drop off @ 33 street, even though there was no bunching, on bustime too. some certainly could be school trippers (i've seen a lone bus holding outside the stop there occasionally around 2-3 PM), but not all are. I often would run down from the 7 to get an RTS on a short turn around 5:00 pm

    To my knowledge, no. Probably was a loaner

    ? I just checked the system to make sure and i'm seeing 1100-1102, 1106 registered to Gleason. It's possible we're using different sources? never mind we're definitely using different systems. I'm only referencing depot rosters

    1105 isn't at JG. As others have already stated though, 1106 is

    Some of them are scheduled to short turn there IIRC. They swing around under 33 Street, park right by 35 facing east, then start picking up from aviation high school. They used to have some turn at 48 Street, wonder what happened to that
  8. Part of that probably has to do with the fact that most nassau county routes have sections with far less trafficc whereas NYC buses don't get to go up to speed so often because of traffic, local road speed limits, etc. There aren't many segments where 40 is justified in the grand scheme of all local routes That's gonna be hard to determine when so many other factors have led to ridership declining.

    Not 100% sure, but it looks like 115 is 5532... Additionally, there's now a 126 out of KB, 127 moved from WF to KB

    Also, 5327 is currently on the Bx6 SBS... It's assigned to WF currently but it's probably just a loan... Happy hunting...

    I wouldn't bother with Eltingville, it's just not worth it. Given the amount of MTA employees that pass through there, you're bound to come upon some bad eggs. And FWIW, there are a few dispatchers consistently around there that aren't cool with photography. There are so many other spots in Staten Island, many of which are untouched, that are more worth it than Eltingville.

    I'm still seeing it @ LGA. Granted it hasn't ran in over a week

    I have no idea what the heck is going on with what number sets are assigned where, all i do is report what I see assigned where. All I can speculate is 7686-78whatever still haven't been delivered so there's still lots of buses to potentially be delivered straight to grand, the pond, jamaica, or wherever That's more of an East New York question.

    Is there a definitive or complete chart anywhere with all the renumbered units and their original numbers (Aside from 100-103)? This is what I've been able to piece together thanks to posts on FB and misc posts on this board (From namely Calvin and MysteriousBtrain): 110 (OH): 5543 111 (OH): 5546 112 (OH): 5554 113 (OH): 5555 114 (OH): 5559 115 (GH): ???? 116 (GH): 5533 117 (KB): 5534 118 (KB): ???? 121 (KB): 5577 122 (KB): ???? For 127 (WF; 5535) 128 (WF; 5536), are they marked 127 and 128 on the bus itself?
