MTA Bus Operations: Deliveries, Moves & Transfers in New York City Bus Posted January 3 9 hours ago, Bill from Maspeth said: if you are going to respond to a statement of mine, please read my entire statement. Will you please answer the following: when the claim the bus is at Grand Ave., is at the DEPOT or BASE SHOP? Please reread the words I said. Grand Ave. Base Shop is not a garage! Grand Ave. depot is, despite the fact they're in the same building. Why? Because a bus at Grand Ave. Base Shop will not run on a Grand Ave. route unless/until the Base shop is finished with the bus and is told by operations to send it to Grand Ave. DEPOT for service. Why can't the 100% of the posters here understand there is a difference between Grand Ave. Base Shop and Grand Ave. Depot? There is no listing for Grand Avenue CMF. There is only a depot created for buses in service buses at Grand Avenue Depot.
