  1. No different than keeping up with the moves... Like fine wine, the roster is getting better with time! Um, if you look its there, look at charleston...then look at yukon...
  2. New Addition to the Depot Roster! We now show the buses that are currently Out of Service at a Vendor or a CMF Updated as of 10:50PM: http://www.ttmg.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=New_York_MTA_Bus_Operations_Depot_Roster
  3. Sure do... 4946 is at Grand Avenue CMF getting some work done. She'll come back to FB fresh as F***!
  4. Spot on Sir! Some people think it would be 5252, but its not!
  5. MA is Meredith Depot. If you look on the roster in the table of contents, it shows the depot with their official abbreviation. Learn them! I very seldom speak in full length names. TO Meredith FROM Charleston
  6. Updated as of 5:30PM: http://www.ttmg.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=New_York_MTA_Bus_Operations_Depot_Roster Changes: 2811 to MA from CH
  8. Wrong, Broadway Bridge... And let me tell everyone, its not about the camera, While I use a DSLR, I've taken some darn good photos with BS cameras, its about having the eye; knowing composition; and the use of proper light.
  9. Well the minute it happens and those buses are keen'd and fueled, we will change it on the roster.

Updated as of January 18th, 2013 @ 5:26PM ET: http://www.ttmg.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=New_York_MTA_Bus_Operations_Depot_Roster Changes: 2855 to MA from CH 2858, 2868 to CH from MA 4735-4737 New to KB 4873, 4880, 4882, 4886-4889, 4895 to UP from CA 4897 to MQ (Pending) from CA 7037, 7039-7040, 7051-7052, 7055-7056 to CA from UP 9274 to LG from JA 9935, 9966 to Scrap from CP
  11. That makes ZERO sense, they would not send a bus they would not be getting. There is more than enough XD60s lingering around for them to send one to MQ for training, much like 4734 being at GH right now. How are you going to train operators on a XD40 when the XD60s function differently and are mechanically a different animal. So either MQ is getting a couple of XD40s themselves OR its there for some type of special need.
  12. A lot of those complaints are due to stuff that the MTA spec'd out a certain way. I've driven LFSs elsewhere and they are a DREAM. But as usual, it takes the MTA to f**k up a perfectly good bus. Hell the MTA LFSs don't even ride like a standard LFS and I blame that stupid single tire on the middle axle. I drove a Prevost with the regular tire set up and a Prevost with the single tire set up. The single tire set up rides hard.
  13. It seems now that the XD60s are coming in, the LFSAs are being more widely used. Wherein they used to pretty much be stuck to the Bx9, I'm seeing them EVERYWHERE on KB routes...Yesterday alone, saw them on the Bx55, 1, 2, 41, 3... Have you been qualified on them yet?
  14. Maintenance Related, Not For Service School Tripper for 5167

  16. Sorry about the date error, did that update half asleep. It works, I say 85% of the time perfectly. However, I can't see them scrapping the system, if anything they'll work on a solution to get it all right.
  17. They are physically in the depots, but are sitting OOS with Scrap on their windshields since the 6th of January. Well, just got confirmation that the GPS systems in some of these buses can not be trusted. 6789 is showing being in Karnataka, India. some 8000+ miles away....Meanwhile it was in service yesterday.

  19. Roster is updated daily... between 3 and 9pm (usually twice within that time period)
  20. Updated as of 8:45PM: http://www.ttmg.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=New_York_MTA_Bus_Operations_Depot_Roster Changes: 4879, 4884-4885, 4896 to UP from CA 7032, 7047-7048, 7053 to CA from UP
  21. I D K what buses YOU riding from LG, but get on any garden variety LG RTS or Orion V (I ride them daily), do a good look around you inside and out, then go ride, say a Fresh Pond RTS....
  22. Good, LG don't need to be beating up anything else right now. Its a shame how those RTSs and Orion Vs look. I don't want to hear any excuses neither, most of those buses came to LG is almost like new condition. The Orion 7 Gen II+s, god bless them are getting repainted, but those Orion 7 Next Generations are looking like they've been there for over 10 years! Luckily most of the MCIs are just Rush Hour buses or they'd look like shit too. #truth
