  1. Everything except the B40. Seeing as they butchered the Queens lines, its probably gonna be some combined super route
  2. No you read that right lol. Wasn't the first time they did it either
  3. Tonight's madness... Still hybrids on the QM17 An XD60 popped up on the Q60 (and is still running as of this post) Quill is on the Bxm11 FP still on the Q24/56
  4. Yup, its a craziest tonight... 4 hybrids on the QM17 2 NGs on the BxM4 FP has runs on both the Q24 AND Q56
  5. 2 separate yards. The uses 239 St, and the uses 180 St/Unionport
  6. Run the same pattern that's running now
  7. They used to signify what yard the car belonged to, but today they're irrelevant. Green: Uniport/180 st for the Yellow: Westchester for the Red: 240 St for the Blue: Livonia for the Orange: Jerome for the Purple: Corona for the Black: 239 St for the
  8. I wasn' talking about bee-line or NICE bus... Besides, all of bee-line buses have back doors that are automatically driver controlled (that's how they were spec'd)
  9. We gotta build a wall and make New Jersey Transit pay for it
  10. Seems like you guys have a slight favoriism with the artics. You'd hardly see an artic out in the street overnight (it's happened, but rarely) but but have no problem with throwing anything else out there, even the LGA Link buses lol
  11. To further explain... There is an "SBS mode" on the buses, but depending on the bus, it's actually labeled as such. A simpler definition would be rear door mode. I'l break it down: Passenger controlled The regular way the back doors are controlled. Once the driver turns the door handle to rear, the back door(s) unlock and the passenger pushes the door open themselves. Usually they would slam back closed (Novas not included) unless someone pushed the tape/bar/strip in which they would stay open until the driver puts the handle back to close. Driver controlled (SBS mode) In this mode, once the driver turns the handle to rear, the back doors (the middle door on the artics count as a back door lol) open automatically and stay open until the handle gets put back to closed. Depending on the bus, it' called something different (touch tape bypass on the RTS, SBS mode on the Novas, etc), but it's all the same thing. Buses doing SBS routes (and to a lesser extent shuttle buses) are supposed to have their buses like this. All it takes is a simple flip of a switch on the driver's panel. In your case, the driver turned the door handle to where the front doors would only open. But like B35 said, that still doesn' stop people from yelling at the backdoors to open lol
  12. There will be a connection for the at Houston St, as it will be the southern terminal for Phase 3 and the debut of the actual However, instead of using the pre-existing station she'l above the platform, it'll run below the station instead.
