    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Obviously, @The Real could answer this way better than I could, but it seems like they were going through the wiring process for either the farebox, or (more likely) the GPS & Wi-Fi.
  2. I think people are so used to those routes, that it isn't really a necessity. Maybe the "Avenue N" one, but most people know the deal once they read "Bergen Bch" on the sign.
  3. I agree with the B14 deal, that always weirded me out, just a bare minimum of information. The B17 needs to say "via RKWY PKWY STA" for the trips to East 80th St, and "via REMSEN AV" for all trips.

    7361 & 7362 FB to ENY.

    It may be a loan, but 5204 is on the B83.

    Now, I'm sure that's totally true for NYCT - but I've also noticed JK and LG buses (Usually RTS' and the Old Gens) get their scheduled overhaul painting done in ENY, usually in the summer, the last 3 summers I've noticed it. So does MTA bus have two different depots doing their overhaul paintings? And that overhaul painting isn't just painting for some buses right?

    Or retired, whichever comes first.

    To be fair @Jdog14 said Staten Island is getting more LFS' in the future, not specifically Castleton. Now, there's no confirmation of future plans for the new buses, but that idea makes sense (pushing the hybrids out of Staten Island).

    Gotta catch up pal. He & Trevor both reported that 7483 is an extra off the 2015 order, and 7484 (in the blue & yellow) is the start of the new order.

    Never has. Why does 0011 say clean-air energy? They couldn't just say all-electric? Makes it seem like it's a hybrid.

    NYMTA Roster Update (Depot and Fleet)

    Cool update! Didn't know some of the 5xxx RTS hit storage - that's for preservation purposes? Also, in the EC routes list - what's MNRR supposed to represent? I like the choice of Sundays. Easier day to deal with I'm sure on your end, and easier day to catch up on it from a reader's perspective.

    Those headlights... something different right?

    Bus Announcement

    Listening to that same announcement on a bus that's not moving seems to clear that up. I notice it chop up like that while the bus is moving though.
