  1. Quite an imagination you have there, sir.
  2. At least one of the 1300's (there's 1300, 1301 and 1304 confirmed to be in storage as I haven't noticed more 1300's yet) was previously a 4700. If you look closely, 1304 in the second picture still has it's MJQ sticker, and the "1" on 1304 came from a modified 4 sticker. Just straight ratchetness...
  3. What depot is it from? It LOOKS like 5309 but I'm not too sure yet.
  4. So with your logic, should park cars in the street be penalized for parking because they're blocking the taxi driver's view of you?
  5. True, but still, you catch my drift.. (I hope). We all have a different outlook on this issue and that's mine.
  6. Indeed it does, but how does one get to that train from everywhere else in the Bronx?Bx1, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 19, 33, 35, 36..... That's what makes all of these routes useful.
  7. The buses (except the Bx15) use different bridges. The Bx15 and other local routes that go from the Bronx to Manhattan, they do not go south of 125th Street (and 125th is far from the heart of the city, which is served by express buses). Most express bus riders want to head to the core of Manhattan. With Queens and Brooklyn, the local buses wouldn't have much of a choice but to operate in the core of Manhattan in a similar route as the express buses. Now with Queens, they have the Q32 (which runs underneath the line) and goes to Penn Station. I don't really see many people using more Queens-Manhattan routes seeing that they only have access to 59th Street (which the also serves underneath) or 125th Street with the bridges available. The Q32, Q60 and Q101 are fairly empty so an extra bus route or two would be pointless. The M60 mainly carries because of LGA Airport of course.
  8. The problem with that is, if more local buses went from Queens/Brooklyn, they'd all end up using the same bridges to get to the same places as the express bus would. That would defeat one of the major purposes of an express bus. Many people would ask "Why am I paying $5.50 to go where every $2.25 bus is going?". There's also an accessibility issue with most train stations. Disabled passengers are most prevalent on Bronx buses (not so much on the subway) because most subway stations lack the accessibility they need. There's no accessible stations from Pelham Bay to 125th Street on the train for example... Which crowds the Bx4 bus which operates beneath the elevated portion of the .
  9. Because people ride these buses maybe? I don't know. Well think about it... Do you want to take the from Pelham Bay Park to Grand Central, the to Times Square, the to Inwood... Or just take a Bx12 bus? Buses connect neighborhoods in places where trains cannot in NYC. How do you expect to get to Manhattan (above 155th Street) via train? A lot of the Bronx is alongside Manhattan, unlike Queens/Brooklyn. There are several bridges between the Bronx and Manhattan. The most northern train that goes into the Bronx from Manhattan is the (155th Street). The is extremely hard to get to for most Bronxites (due to it being so far out west) as well. A lot of the Bronx is alongside Manhattan. Queens and Brooklyn aren't as easily accessible to Manhattan, which is why there's a subway system. I think that's pretty easy to tell on map... Just saying.
  10. Do not expect me to visit NYCTF too often.

  11. I've never been so disappointed with the transit fan community in my entire life. People are actually going to kick and scream over a bus TRANSFER? Last time I've checked, the MTA has purchased these vehicles.. Not us. Don't like it, ride another bus. Take a cab. Take the train. WALK! At the end of the day, the point of transportation is to help you get from point A to point B faster. If you're so worried about WHAT'S getting you to point B each time, your destination(s) must not be that important.. I'm just saying!
  12. Well THAT escalated quickly! Anyways 'R32 3838', they're both buses. Bus (noun): A large motor vehicle carrying passengers by road, especially one serving the public on a fixed route and for a fare.
  13. Oh shut your stuck-up trap already, Riverdale is IN THE DAMN BRONX... BRONX, NEW YORK. What goes there? BRONX BUSES. Bx1. Bx7. Bx9. Bx10. BxM routes... What does these buses have in common? They all go to Riverdale, AND they are all BRONX routes... What does that tell you? You're in the boogie down with your pretentious a$$.
  14. Damn, great shots, honestly I've seen people with DSLR's taking night photos that aren't even half as good as these... Thanks for the credit too bro!
  15. Nice photos Jeffrey.. I think you should apply to the USPS with the way you mailbox. Just kidding. :cool:
