  1. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Big difference. 5439 was spec'd accordingly prior to delivery. This bus is spec'd just like 7110-7139. And, this bus was already built in August of 2015.
  2. MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    It's spec'd the exact same as the rest of the 2015 order, nothing special. Option order starts at 7484(allegedly). There's gotta be some sort of story behind this one. It was built in August of 2015.

    Sounds the same to me.

    They can swap out the Alcoas. Exterior cams come standard in Proterras, especially since it's necessary if they need to back up or to align with the charging station. Let's not forget that they've been slowly adding bike racks to routes.

    Gotta reupload those pics.
  6. R179 Discussion Thread

    Outside of the R188s, they are the most reliable cars in the IRT fleet. That doesn't matter.....the R142s had their fair share of problems when they were brand new. With all of the bugs ironed out, they've become the most reliable cars in the IRT, surpassing the R142A.

    Plus, with the way he likes to gloat about everything on here(I guess to make up for something else, who knows), you'd think he actually is one.....
  8. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Those are pretty dumb reasons to report an operator, all because he had a different way of addressing and/or greeting you.
  9. WTF is going on at CP??

    Not like that option is any better...
  10. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    11 years isn't recent. They got extended to Sutphin Blvd in 2006. Regardless, that's a non-factor as to why they got shafted. I'm willing to bet that it's mostly because the DOT would rather not deal with the TLC.
  11. BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Couldn't even let me post my shot? Sheesh. Anyway. I came across this while I was going to work a few nights ago. For some dumb reason. The DOT decided to fiddle with the area underneath the Jamaica LIRR Station. Instead of dealing with the cabs that cause 80% of the traffic problems, they instead choose to screw with the buses instead by moving the pick-up stop for the Q65 across the street heading south. I get the fact that the buses also tend to cause issues when there's a bunch of them parked along that area, but its not as bad as the cabs that intentionally block buses from going to the stops(primarily the Q8 and the Q41), causing some serious traffic problems. The DOT's refusal of dealing with the cabs in the area is more than evident, and blatant at that.

    It makes sense until you realize that CP is also a CNG depot.....lets not forget that little tidbit. If they happen to get CNG powered coaches, that's all good. But until then, that's the big hole in this so-called plan. They can't just abandon the CNG fuel, as its federally funded, so it has to be put to use. Lets ease up on the speculation and focus on bus transfers in this thread.

    Posting in the wrong thread about this.
  14. Select Bus Service Discussion

    Around the back? As in into the terminal? They can. It's been overstated that artics can make the same turns as the 40fters, and the Xcelsiors have a better turning radius. They won't send them through the terminal though, likely because the entire bus won't fit at the platform bay, I could be wrong though.
