  1. Nice to see Miami as the city name for the Marlins. You forgot that the DiamondBacks have started 3 and 0 this season.
  2. Welcome to our community!
  3. Is it just Academy and Hillside #22 or are there more companies that operate routes for New Jersey Transit? Also, which Jersey City routes are operated by each?
  4. Hi! Happy twenty-fifth anniversary to Fox! Here in Tucson, FOX is KMSB Channel 11.
  5. Hi! I've a job! I work for the Beacon Group. It's Monday through Friday 8:00am to 2:30pm. It's fun - I make rivets, put binders together and help wash cars and trucks.
  6. Hi! Please use this thread to post your random thoughts about Long Island Railroad and Metro-North Railroad service.
  7. Hi! Construction has begun here in Tucson on the Modern Streetcar line (I love that name). Presently, construction is on North Fourth Avenue between East University Boulvard and East Congress Street and on East Congress Street between Toole and Stone Avenues. The good news is that the Ronstadt is open, though Sun Tran bus routes are on detours Downtown due to Congress being closed. When completed, the Modern Streetcar line will run from North Park Avenue and East University Boulevard to the west side of the Santa Cruz River on West Congress Street via University, Fourth and Congress. Why the Modern Streetcar? I think it's to distinguish it from the Heritage Streetcar that currently runs from North Euclid Avenue and East University Boulevard to East Eighth Street and North Fourth Avenue (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays). It will be interesting to see if the vintage streetcar will run the full route and how frequently the modern streetcars will run. Presently, our best time is on the #8 Broadway-Sixth Avenue which is every ten minutes during the day portion on Weekdays, fifteen minutes during the same on Saturdays and every twenty minutes during the same on Sundays. The #4 East Speedway has ten and fifteen minutes during the day portion on Weekdays. For detour updates, please visit http://www.suntran.com
  8. I got the number wrong. It's 2949. And it has a mate - #2950. Riders enjoy the soft, comfortable front seats on these two buses.
  9. It's official then? NJT is operating the #10 with the same number? This is wonderful!
  10. The #3 ran via Summit Avenue - the #231 ran via Baldwin Avenue. Anyone remember the #11 or #99?
  11. Which was your favorite Red And Tan In Hudson County route and why?
  12. I felt this might be coming. Red And Tan In Hudson County has been shedding routes for years. I agree - no way will the South Boulevard be left without bus service. You know what's funny? NJT and M & W work together on West Side Avenue - and have for decades.
  13. Somehow, my thought of Patriots-Ravens and Giants-49ers came true. Next week is going to be a good N.F.C. Championship Game. Maybe Patriots-Giants or Ravens-49ers?
  14. New York City: Manhattan: M10 The Bronx: BX3 Brooklyn: B67 Queens: Q33 NJT: #88 Valley Metro: #61 Sun Tran: #8
  15. Thank you. I know it sounds a little odd. I think Sun Tran does things a little differently.
  16. Just curiosity: Who is your favorite current and all-time favorite bus maufacturer? My favorites will come.......
  17. Here in Tucson, I've seen buses on routes 8 Broadway-6th Avenue and 4 Speedway that read "BUS FOLLOWING". They stop only on a stop requested and beyond the bus stop area. I've been on a route 8 that became a "BUS FOLLOWING". The bus that follows is generally two to five minutes behiind. On weekedays the #8 has ten minute headways and the #4 has ten to fifteen minute headways. My question is: Is the bus with "BUS FOLLOWING" kind of on a "battery run" to attempt to make up time or to keep a minimal spacing between buses? So far, on the #8, it appears to be a Novabus followed by a Gillig while on the #4 a Novabus followed by a Novabus. My #8 did make my stop requested stop the day I was on it.
