    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.

    That wasn't my question.

    If the bus is assigned to Grand Ave. DEPOT, the expectation is that it would be seen running on Grand Ave. routes, or at the very least, there for the mechanics to get acquainted with the bus and/or begin to qualify the operators on the equipment, if there are major differences on the bus.

    If the bus is assigned to Grand Ave. BASE SHOP, the expectation it that it's "visiting" for maintenance training purposes.

    Grand Ave. Depot and Grand Ave. Base Shop, despite being in the same large building, are completely separate entities.

    This is absolutely incorrect. There is never an expectation that bus will run on a route until has physically seen service on that route. There have been plenty of situations where buses were assigned to garages and never once saw service (i.e. 6772 at JFK, 6480 at LGA, 7540 at Eastchester). There was never the expectation that any of these were going to go out.

     

    As of right now, there has not been any changes in the fleet assignments. Again, as always subject to change but as of now it is still the same as the information shared a few weeks ago.

    May not be a transfer per se, but I saw 5501 inside East New York Depot---might it have been there to find areas of tight clearance for the articulated fleet? (I expect that 7659-7684 will be bumped off of SBS duty, which in turn would cause a transfer of some of the newer XD40s to FP to knock out their O7 hybrids.

    The next issue then would be to renew the Manhattan Division rigid fleet (aside from Quill). The recent 40' bus orders have all been for the outer boroughs, except for Quill. Manhattanville in particular has gone 14 years without receiving a new bus (remember: the 3800s began their lives in Staten Island Division.) If I'm not mistaken, 6789 was the last bus Manhattanville received brand new.

    All 4 manhattan depots will be getting hybrids off the new orders.

    Supposedly East New York is only receiving 25 new buses. I can see East New York pushing out their local scheme 2018/19 XD40s to other depots in Brooklyn, but I do not know what is actually going to happen so I’ll keep my other predictions to myself.

    ENY is receiving 25 XDE40s, but also 69 Novabus LFS for a grand total of 94 new buses between now and early 2022.

    82 to CP? Starting when? 

    Delivery is expected to begin in January 2021.

    Disclose it. I meant 50 buses in NYCT to go to Charleston only. Not sure if the MTA will get the option order of 23, and taking it to Yukon.

    At this time the option order has not been accepted.

    To sum up any questions regarding these buses. As of right now, this is the current allotment:

    -25 to LGA 

    -15 to JFK

    -13 to BP

    The current SBS units at MTAB will go back to NYCTA, with a handful remaining for use on the Q70 when the line gets converted to artic in the near future. Buses will receive SBS colors in due time. 

     

     

    I stand corrected. The assignments have been changed. BP has been eliminated from this order, and it will be split between LGA and JFK with LGA getting 28 buses and JFK getting 25.

    Is Baisley Park on a shortage from what they already have?

    This is to implement partial artic conversion on the Q64.

    Wait let me get this straight, the 6209s are not going to be SBS? So I guess we will see them on the Q39? Smh.

    They're not in SBS livery like 6234 probably so they're available for the Q10 and Q70 as well as the Q52/53.

    the assumption is that the Bus Co. artics will remain in local wrap because between JFK/Far Rock, LaGuardia & Baisley Park depots, there are only 2 sbs lines (52/53) and it'd be kinda pointless to have any of the artics dedicated to solely sbs service when it'd be significantly easier to mileage swap buses between said depots for all their artic lines (Q10/52/53/111/113/114 or any other line they choose to use them on, like the Q70 or Q7, etc) seeing as (or assuming that) these units will not be transferred/swapped with NYCTA/MaBSTOA units

    Right now those 2 buses are registered to Quill. 

    For those keeping score. Yukon NG’s left for pending transfer to mainland: 4251, 4265, 4272, 4276, 4012, 4674. 

    At least 2 of those most likely will stay. Yukon is a 7 day training depot and the NG is the standard training bus. They have to have at least 2 for that purpose.
