    2017 Bus Ridership Stats

    Look at that, the Q103 gaining ridership.
  2. They put that Fairfax Orion V on one of the Langone lines once.

    Skyscraper City. They have forums dedicated to subways/public transportation and railways, and each country listed has its own transport subforum. https://www.skyscrapercity.com/

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    There's a photo on FB from a Mr. Koyf of a Prevost R809 from back in May. It's for a new Lower Hudson Transit Link. https://www.dot.ny.gov/lhtl/about This photo is from that website.

    SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    Got to ride the today, went express from Astoria Blvd to QBP. What was interesting was that the conductor said "For those who need to get off at 30th Avenue and 36th Avenue, take this train to Queensboro Plaza, and take a LOCAL LIMITED back up."

    MTA Bus Operations: Scrapped Equipment List

    Though it seems they were there for about two years, I have not seen many photos of the RTS in express service.
  14. It shows how much of an effort he wants to put into fixing the MTA when the first hire he has in New York is for communications. It is an area that is relatively easy to perform compared to analytics, logistics, construction, and engineering, yet for some reason, the MTA has lagged behind. So good on his part. I can also see where that disabilities group has an influence, with the wheelchair friendly MCI. Also, that part where Byford had to come down to for that photo shoot with Cuomo just made me laugh. Imagine having to come down just for a guy waving a metal wand.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Just came back from the Macy's Fireworks show in Long Island City. I was with some friends, including one who has had operations on each knee and cannot walk for too much. There were tons of people getting out from LIC, and Vernon Blvd on the was closed off. Luckily for us, when we got to 11th Street/Jackson Avenue, 4519 on the B32 came along. At 10:42 PM. For those that don't know, the last runs on the B32 for the day leave the terminals at 9 PM and end their runs about 20 minutes later. 4519 took about 10 minutes to go off the foot of the Pulaski and stop at 11th Street. Then it took 20 minutes to go 44th Drive. All because of the traffic. We then decided to take the Q69 home. About 20 people got on at 44th Drive, and 20 more got on at Queensbridge. The bus crowded in the front and the lines at the stop were long to the point where about 12 people got on the backdoor. So yeah, my bus story of the day.
