    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Please remember that this thread is only for moves and transfers. Please reserve general discussions for the Fleet & Depots thread. That is only a rumor. If an when the entire operations are merged the only thing that would take place would be a split. Even though LG would be ideal, it’s way too early to even talk about that and as of right now there is no way on God’s green Earth TA would transfer the M60+ to Bus Co. Please refer to the first page of Fleet & Depots for information on the current and upcoming fleet details, delivery schedules, and assignments.

    MTA Bus Operations: Repainted/Wrapped Buses

    Yes I get that, but as the buses are delivered and posted in the transfers thread, or the roster is updated, they are logged into the first page. No need to post them here because it’s already known what colors they are coming in.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you posting this? This thread is for repaints, rewrapped and unwrapped equipment.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    It’s. It just a simple fix. There are tons of factors as to why a bus may not show up. We have 5,900 buses in the system. A fare box, a destination sign, a put-in, a mechanical malfunction, a hardware malfunction an improper installation, improper set-up a software issue, or even bad weather could cause a ghost bus. There are many different factors. Another common one is a brand new buses. It just hasn’t been uploaded yet. Less than 5% of the buses end up being ghosts. That’s an average of about 30 give or take. The BusTime GPS can only operate accurately if every system tied to it on the vehicle is functioning properly. It’s just not realistic to think it will work all the time. Human error is the cause most of the time. For example. I went out on a new New XD40 and later a new XDE40 out of Grand. Neither of them showed up. The XDE40 wasn’t even supposed to go out yet because it wasn’t set up properly in the system completely or properly. The XD40 didn’t show up because the farebox which had just come out of an RTS the night before wasn’t connected properly. Also remember that one change in Destination sign will remove a bus as well. If an operator forgets to change the destination on the farebox the bus will disappear.

    Far and JK are only an exception because of Sandy. The depot for the most part has been rebuilt. The structure is still the same but the depot has undergone extensive upgrades during the rehabilitation. There is only a rotation because the depot is not back to full operating status just yet. Even though there are buses assigned to the depot, the main roster has everything assigned to JK. The rehab is just about done. I would expect it to back to full status by summer.

    No nothing changed. Pay attention to what I said in my post. Most modern day diesel pumps. That means now. If the vast majority of stations are still, or the the pump is old then yes. You also have to remember that there are several regular cars that take diesel fuel as well, so I’m sure it still happens to this day. In the case here, we are referring to buses, CNG, and diesel. Not regular fueling stations where you may have the problem you mentioned. It’s just not possible at MTA or on any heavy duty buses for that matter. The 2 aren’t compatible. You can’t mess that up.

    For reference, Quill now has 7573-7581, 7585-7591 I’m not saying you were wrong at all at your time of post. There is a possibility that the GPS was at MQ and the bus was at GA. Even at my time of posting it is still a possibility. When I go back through the yard roster it’s not on GA’s or MQ’s for the 7th. Only assigned to MQ. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    I like you. You are a good guy. You contribute to the forums and you know your stuff. However, after reviewing your posts I’m seeing that you are one of the main people who are either not reading, or asking the same questions. Everything about the fleet has been answered. Sure things are always subject to change but nothing has been new for quite some time. We know assignments are just projected and nothing is final until after the L train is restored. Nothing has changed since then. Everything that is going on is and was expected. However, if you continue with these general fleet discussions in this thread I’m going to find you and strangle you for Christmas. (Just joking of course). Seriously tho, I haven’t been trying to publicly call anyone out but, this is far from your first time. Hit the + button that you would use to multi-quote, go over to the appropriate forum and reply there. As far as what’s going on with the XD40’s, Y’all are driving me crazy with these bus moves, all the speculation, and the questions. Although everything has been answered and has been according to what has been posted for a while now, that does not mean things may but change. Until then please keep up people. No one should be surprised about any XD40’s going to any random depots at this point. The only thing I need to update is the delivery schedule.

    Not possible. Diesel and CNG pumps are “Dummy Proof” You can’t put one in the other. Similar to how most modern diesel nossels and all high pressure diesel nossels are a bit too wide for gas tanks as well. True.

    It’s actually at Quill in the shop continuing its restoration to like-new status.

    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    1. As a reminder, we should not be having whole conversations in Moves and Transfers. 2. I’ve said 75 times at least that these XD40’s are going to be all over the place. ALL deliveries are to bolster fleets for the subway shuttles. In the process these buses can be used anywhere needed. You all need to keep up with the first page of the Fleet & Depots. For those who are keeping up, and those that ask the same questions over again, are confusing me. How many times do we have to go over the same things and you all act like you were never aware of any of it. We have been going over all this for months on in. It should be quite obvious how things are going if you all READ.

    Unless anything changed, Quill is the last depot for regular fleet increases and all new XD40's coming in are for L train service. However, everyone please note that the depots that have them already will be getting more and may or may not be the actual buses planned for that depot when this is all done. Again see the first page of Fleet & Depots to get a better understanding of the Xd40 fleet delivery. The lower section delivery schedule is being updated soon.
