  1. Playing hookie? well I'm not complainig but some just abuse the privlage of having a "free" or "reduced" student pass. I'm starting high school in Sept and we get issued free Mertrocards if we put in for one. But its a bummer for those students who use express bus service. Imagine if this happen to local bus routes...
  2. When I used to live in east elmhurst on 93rd st and 23 ave ( a few blocks north of Triboro Coach Corps depot) I would always see the buses deadheading to and from. One bus that especially intrigued me was the 93 TMC RTS CNGs. They were in great condition at that time (well most of them) and were fast loaders. I remeber when i would always get one on the Q72. I just loved listening to that Cummins L10G & ZF Ecomat 590. Well I remeber them as great buses, and always will. ... Here are some questions I have about them- 1. everytime the driver hit the brakes they made that Whooting sound(kinda like an Owl), Why? 2. Why did Triboro often clean out the tanks?(I often saw a few of these at the depot with the panels for the CNG tank opened) 3. Why were some primed in the rear by the AC? 4. When bus took over why did they allow them to fall into bad shape 5. Why did they get retired early???
  3. IMO I think it was very retar... (Let me put it in a nice way)dumb to put automated voices for stuff like that. I'm pleased with what's at QV. Now if only we could Orion 5's again :cool:
  4. QV won't see anymore TMCs for sure. They're leaving QV very slowly as some of the current 90's have went back to Bus and other depots.
  5. Wierd. When Bus took over and all the CNG buses left that depot the CNG facility was done away with. Or was it?:eek:
  6. When The MTA had the Gillig Phantom hybrid demo (5770) how did they feel about its performance, and reliability? (basically was it good or bad) http://www.ttmg.org/photos/tlogan/NYCB_Gillig_5770c.jpg *note-not my photo property of Trevor Logan Also found this- LIB Gillig Phantom 545 http://www.ttmg.org/photos/tlogan/LIB_Gillig_545.jpg *Note-not mine. also property of Trevor Logan What's the (MTA)'s history with Gillig and why does the hate (G)i(L)(L)i(G) buses? (Other than the wierd Voith Transmission... )
  7. So basically QV is getting nothing new untill its time to retire the novas right?
  8. Hey! long time no chat,

    sorry about that... I havent done that much bus related things since school closed... I guess I'll start posting more stuff on youtube soon cuz I'm gonna start taking the Q1 & J Train to Transit Tech.

  9. Well that is true.... QVs oldest buses are the TMCs and they're in fine condition.
  10. I saw this bus leaving 165st term 8/14/09. Man I wish i had my phone on me.
  11. Honestly... Does anyone know when Queens Village is getting Orion VII NGs, or any other new bus?
