  1. MTA Bus will hold onto them but they still belong to NYCT at the end of the day.
  2. I believe it's 6274 to 6286 getting wrapped for the Q70, so that would be 13 buses. That leaves 16 left over for the Q53 and spares.
  3. Remember that the 2017s aren't theirs to keep. Easier to commit something to the Q70 that's going to stay there as opposed to doing the 17s, then having to unwrap them, then having to wrap the 19s.
  4. I haven't heard anything solid yet. It's way too early being that the first bus for NYCT hasn't been built yet. The other thing is that it's not going to be a simple give new buses to this depot, send old buses to retire older buses at another depot. The Prevosts are starting to hit 200K miles. That will be a factor when these buses are delivered. On top of that, the option order is to allow the MTA to take the SIM23 and 24 from Academy.
  5. And my point was that we don't live in a perfect world.
  6. Well the buses have to be prepped for this. It's just not switching to rear door boarding that's going on.
  7. Training on the new LFS took 5 minutes for me. It's the same bus.
  8. Exactly. Just because a bus is at a depot, does not mean that it's there for revenue service. A bunch of Staten Island buses go to Manhattan to get the OMNY systems worked on when the vendor is not on the Island or they're a pass through depot on a transfer move. Also, what people do have to realize is that operators are qualified on multiple types of buses through cross training. I haven't driven a XN40 yet but being that I'm trained on the XD40s, I can hop in one and go. So yeah, no need to wait on a XD60 because a depot is getting XDs.
  9. They run your abstract from DMV. Whatever it has on it, is what they will see.
  10. They're not gonna delay service just because an artic isn't available at the depot.
  11. Yes, you can pick into any Brooklyn depot except for Spring Creek. Congrats! Just keep in mind that your Day 7 will differ because your superintendent can take you anywhere. Focus moreso on what you need to do to get through the route.
  12. Definitely not our bus with the Prevost logo on the back.
