    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    How did they even dropped the ball? Cuomo cancelled the L train shutdown and now we have newer buses to spare. So really the cng at wf being retired isn’t even a problem at this point. And how does new tech make things worse? I’m just curious.

    I know it’s not my place to say something but I am going to anyway. You have people who know more about these things tell you point and simple things happen, it just does. You act like everything in the world works perfectly, it doesn’t. Your argumentive ways is starting to get out of hand and it’s not rational. You should listen to what others have to tell you instead of just refuting what they said which is factual. Yeah the MTA can probably do things better but in some cases things just simply happen cause nothing is perfect.
  3. The mta can’t provide the service it promises because most of the time our buses are stuck behind traffic which in some cases are caused by double parking and other things such as drivers trying to compete for one parking space. In dense places not driving personal vechiels should be encouraged. Why? Because dense places aren’t made for traffic. It’s one of the reasons why I don’t expect this Elon musk hyper loop thingy to even work. You can fix traffic by providing more spaces for traffic. Now if I’m more spread out places like suburban and rurual areas cars would be needed because lack of transportation and far distant of places for people to go to.

    Select Bus Service Planning

    Which makes sense. But since the L train thing was cancelled it was presumed that the LFSAs would just be for local service but seeing this that they're going to convert the current routes into sbs or I should say propose to it makes more sense to why quill is getting more.

    No wonder why quill is getting more lfsa buses.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    So what is the next sbs since the M14 sbs is a no go? Is the MTA waiting till the redesigned of the bus maps in certain bouroughs to implement them?

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    No they won’t. They got their orders for the Xd40s already. The next order for them is the XD60s and possibly another X series in future. The L train shuttle XD40s has already been assigned.

    That’s what I said earlier.

    Yeah that was the case and those XN60s were to push out those diesel artics (correct me if I’m wrong).

    The Bx36 and Bx6 didn’t necessarily need Xn60s to become artics. West Farms had other non cng artics. The XN60s for WF was needed to retire their Orion’s thus converting the Bx6 and 36 to artic routes. I believe the BX36 won’t be artic until the spring.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I’ve seen some nasty buses in Brooklyn. Not all the time but usually when it does I can tell school kids always just finished riding it. But this is just horrid etiquette. Some places in the U.S. you aren’t allowed to take food on the bus.

    MTA Bus Operations: Deliveries, Moves & Transfers

    Not a move or transfer but I saw 7686 on the B82 sbs without the sbs wrapping.
  13. I kept saying the culture here is just ehh. You have some many car oriented minded people in a dense city like this. If true sbs or brt were to exist in nyc we would really have to rethink car ownership. Also I don’t get why the B82 isn’t a true sbs because I mean it does quite well for a sbs route in a narrow stretch. To me I could see the mta using it to help other potential routes in nyc that have difficult routing.

    Bus Routes That Like To Bunch

    Bunching to me is inevitable. Whether we like it or not and or if there’s ways to help improve bunching it’s still going to happen. Traffic, lack of enforcement for traffic violations, and other factors are going to make buses bunch. For my list is the B41, B47, B6, B68, and others.

    What was the reason for them rejecting it?
