    MTA Bus Operations: Fleet & Depots

    Yes, it had its own depot logo and everything. When it was Green Lines they was separate as well as FR never had the MCI Classics with the local bus seats, but JFK did... well in the late 90s/early 2000s at least. Post takeover JFK usually had all of the DC reject Orion V but some strayed over to FR from time to time.

    There's no G.O on the mainline IRT this weekend😄 There's one G.O on the but it's a minor one, it's being replaced by a shuttle bus between Willis Point and Main Street.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Rode a XD40 on a WF route today, I like the fact that WF has both XD40s and XN40s. I do wonder if it causes confusion when it comes to fueling the buses at the depot though, as they mostly look the same with minor differences that the average transit employee wouldn't care about. Not saying that's a bad thing, if I wasn't a buff I wouldn't notice or care about the differences between the XN and XD40s.

    MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

    XD40s have been coming into Ulmer Park like crazy so I wouldn't surprised if a bunch of RTS's get retired from that depot soon.

    Okay, I sympathize with MTA for once...

    IDK why but I lol'd at this exchange.

    Anybody noticed that the 68As that been really loud on the outside lately? When one comes though a station it sounds like earthquake. Their louder than every other car class in the active fleet right now.
  8. This is a different CBTC system than the one on the line. So I'm not surprised their are teething issues. I think the line CBTC will be very reliable like the one is once all the issues are sorted out.
  9. Port Authority crossings have PAPD. However PAPD also patrol PATH, WTC site, etc.

    That bar in front of the farebox on some of the newest New Flyer buses we got kinda makes it hassle to dip the metrocard in the farebox.

    With a bike you can travel between those two points quickly. I bike a mile in 4 to 5 minutes. Look up bike lanes in Manthattan. Hudson River Park bike trail has little to no traffic crossings you won't have to worry about lights.

    I wonder if it's because JY 46s run on a part time line where's PY 46s run 24/7 (and on the longest line in the system). R62s outperform 62As even though they are older and even at one point even outperformed the 142s.

    207th maintains the line 160s, AFAIK, Pikin has good maintenance. The line fleet comes in for inspection more often compared to other B div lines (due to the high mileage of the line)so the cars will be well taken of. The R46 currently running out of Pikin are in good shape for their age IMO. It's funny as CI 160s seem be in better shape than the ones based out of 207th, despite the fact that CI units run 24/7. 207th units brakes screech and have dead motors and just seem beat up and they run on a part time line, CI 160s rarely ever screech and run very smooth.
