    MTA Bus Operations: Moves & Transfers

    Technically, they did have 5440, that bus was in service for a few weeks before going to the service center. 5441 & 5443 are the ones they legitimately never had yet.

    40mph. But, Yukon has a slew of LFSs that are ungoverned. It's probably the operator just holding back.

    Meant to post this like 2 weeks ago, but I forgot, and I was preparing for a short vacation. Spotted 3015-3019 heading up to 207th Street around 10pm-ish. VID_20180927_222344.mp4

    One problem with your statement. The 7000s are not hybrids, nor are they NGs. They are straight diesel buses, hence why they got them at first.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Traffic didn't ease up on both the East and West Side till 11pm. 3rd(police activity near 34th), Madison(con-ed work), 6th, 7th & 8th Avenues caused a pretty big bottleneck with traffic. Hell, the only part of the line that didn't see much traffic is 1st & 2nd Avenues....and 23rd Street on the M34A. M34 & M34A service goes close to 25 or so minute headways after 9pm on Saturdays too, and with the traffic that was all over the line from end to end, it was bound to get delayed regardless. Traffic always screws up the line at Comic-Con and the Auto Show, so the delays shouldn't even be that much of a surprise to anyone.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    I was out there last night while working, as I had to ride the M34 a couple of times to/from drop-off locations. It wasn't that bad tbh. The bulk of the crowd did get off at 7th Avenue. 6th Avenue going East didn't look all that crowded. All of the artics were packed until 7th Avenue, which makes sense because the bulk of the Comic-Con ridership came from Penn Station itself. I saw some of those direct M34s from 12th to 7th and the ones signed up as Subway Shuttles. They were p a c k e d and you'd see most of the crowd spill into Penn Station. I get why they did that, East Side definitely wasn't all that busy on the line. Normally, it's usually 4 buses on the M34+ at night, so it shouldn't be all that surprising at how the East Side was handled. Plus, there were loads of traffic on the East Side due to a portion of Lexington Avenue being closed off for some local event, and Con-Ed construction on Madison Avenue forcing traffic to go on 3rd Avenue. I'd say they did a pretty good job handling the comic-con madness.
  10. Too many to list.....I'll leave it at that 😂

    85 60-Foot Clean Diesel Articulated Buses

    They do not have the same turning radius as a 30ft bus. @theaveragejoe is correct with what he said. Nova Bus LFS artics have the same exact turning radius as the 40fters. In the case of the Xcelsiors, the 35fter has a 39ft turning radius, whereas the 40ft and 60ft units share the same turning radius at 44ft.

    That article is wrong, it was always due on the 11th.

    Select Bus Service Planning

    To be fair, it would also keep the mileage down on those XD40s.

    As much as I like the development of this group in this thread, I would also like to suggest creating a Facebook group or a twitter page. You'd get way more traction and far more people joining the cause.

    5439 is said to be at Quill. 5441 and 5443 are all that's left in this LFS Artic order.
