  1. Those have to be the strangest destination sign fonts I've ever seen.
  2. The problem is that, unless I missed something, MCI isn't going to market a 40-ft cruiser much longer. Of course, as we all know, if NJT say "jump" MCI would ask "How high?" So you never know.
  3. 419 was another route that used to serve Philadelphia before it was cut back to Camden. Indirectly related, but in Center City Philadelphia, there's a block-long vacant property at 8th and Market. I'm surprised nobody has ever thought about relocating the Greyhound Terminal from it's current (cramped and very sketchy) location at 11-Filbert. It makes it a lot easier for buses to navigate in and out from 8-Market compared to 11-Filbert, much easier connections to Market-Frankford, Broad-Ridge Spur and PATCO, and by potentially having all NJT buses terminate at 8-Market, you eliminate that time consuming loop along Market, Broad and Vine Streets that tends to foul up the South Jersey locals, especially the 400.
  4. Yet, if the numbering starts at 7213, then 148 buses would put the highest numbered MCI at 7360. I'm wondering if this is the start of the numbering for the option order, since the 65th bus with an order starting at 7213 would put the last of the "base" order buses at 7277. Keep in mind the haphazard delivery of the current MCI fleet, where, as I recall, there didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to how the buses were numbered during the delivery process.
  5. NJT has had a history of not using the luggage compartments dating back to 9/11 that I can recall.
  6. I wouldn't think it would matter, since they're all assigned to Coach USA, although the fact that ONE Bus and Community are likely separate entities (for NJMVC and USDOT purposes), unless that changed, it might require some approval from One Penn Plaza.
  7. At your leisure, here are few I'd like to see: Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority (PA): VALLEY 2 BELLE VERNON SHOPPING VIA CHARLEROI --- VALLEY 2 W BROWNSVILLE SHOPPING VIA CHARLEROI/CAL U --- COMMUTER A TO VALLEY --- CAL COMMUTER TO DOWNTOWN PGH VIA LARGE PARK/RIDE --- VALLEY 4 TOWARD DONORA
  8. I recall seeing a lot of MC-9s at the ABC yard on Admiral Wilson Blvd in Camden when they were being phased out in favor of the D4000/4500s. Was this a different location than the one I'm thinking of?
