    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Those are the numbers of the old 125 Orion VII CNG buses. These new XD40 buses are taking their number spots.

    I have seen this happen on the B46 SBS buses as well.

    Q22/Q35 Rockaways Open House

    They should’ve done that a long time ago.

    Q22/Q35 Rockaways Open House

    I think this poster is photoshopped, and outdated now. By this time, the MTA has not even started community outreach over the route for SBS. Even a new 7th Avenue stop would be nice, and since traffic congestion is bad, an update on where to place bus lanes is needed. In all honesty, I believe that there shouldn’t be any stop in Downtown Brooklyn should be a SBS stop. If anything , we should take a page out of the DOT Downtown Brooklyn Surface Transit Circulation Study and build a new Downtown Brooklyn Bus terminal AWAY from the Livingston Street and Fulton Mall corridor. This allows for a new fare free shuttle bus to run there every 2 minutes and replace ALL current bus routes on those streets (the northern end of the B67 will be served by another route). The truncated bus routes (which would terminate at the new terminal) the become more reliable for other passengers.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    They look like the current 328 2011-2012 LFSA Bus fleet, but with some minor differences. Of the 90 buses ordered, around 50 of them are seen on the M15 +Select, and and the last 39 are seen on some local routes out of OF (M35), GH, and KB in Manhattan and the Bronx. I believe one bus is off the roster due to an accident.

    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    My fault. I though the B46 SBS Artic operation was never going to happen due to parking issues at DeKalb Avenue, and the fact that they are getting new XD40 buses for the service. But it is about time the B46 went artic, even though only 19 buses. Every time I’m there during the morning rush hour, it’s always standing room only after leaving Church Avenue. It gets to the point where people even stand at the rear door, even though it’s prohibited. I hope they deploy those buses during the morning rush.

    Is the B46 Select bus Service really going to be converted to articulated bus operation? If so, why are they going to get 48 New Flyer XD40 buses in the SBS scheme (7667-7714)? Did they also fix the parking problem at DeKalb Avenue?

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Even then they would still need to have a certain spare ration or else reliability problems with the buses occur. Do you think that the not-yet-awarded 53 XD60 bus order for MTA Bus will even include more than enough buses for summer service increases?

    In that case, they would have 3 buses for spares left. I don’t think that is an acceptable spare factor.

    Is this temporary?

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    That’s great, but why are buses 5987-5990 going to LG Depot, even thought they are intended to stay at CS? Were plans for the XD60 changed today?

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    I’m not sure about the next order going to the Woodhaven Blvd SBS routes, but moving the current buses they have is definitely the plan.

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Why didn’t they send them to Tuskegee Airmen Depot already? Aren’t buses 6030-6108 supposed to go there and get the D60HF buses out to retirement?

    That would be nice, especially for me. If I could get off the train and see a bus waiting on Flatbush Avenue going to Bergen Beach, that would be lovely. Right now, if the B41 is late, then I have to take the Q35 to Quentin Road and walk home from there.

    Select Bus Service Discussion

    There were other items you proposed such as splitting the B68, the 2 routes to JFK Airport, etc. I find these a piece of art that they should be fine tuned for the NY of 2018 (the old proposals predate SBS), notably: Borough Park: B16 runs straight along Ft. Hamilton Pkwy as proposed. Proposed B21 route to replace the now-discontinued B23 route would be a restored B23 route. Also B23 would be extended on the other end to Canarsie Plaza. Flatlands: B9 extended to Bergen Beach as proposed. B41 on Bergen Beach cut to rush hours and overnights only (for night service on Avenue N). New B41 SBS to operate to both Kings Plaza and Bergen Beach all day. B11 extended to Ralph Avenue via Avenue K in both directions. Gerritsen Beach and Marine Park: B2 extendes along 65th Street and absorbs B64 along Bay Ridge Avenue. Operates along Bay Ride Avenue in both directions. B31 extended to Bensonhurst as proposed. Canarsie: Proposed B81 LTD becomes B82 SBS from Coney Island to Gateway Mall. These are some ways the proposals can be tailored to a modern NY. What do you think?
