  2. Not weird at all. I was just riding the Q19 a couple of days ago. It seemed there were streches were the opposite was true. The stop was before the light, so if someone wanted to get off and the bus stopped, we would miss the green light.

  4. I can already hear the excuses. "But...but this is New York. Only we know what's right for us. Only we know the quirks and small things. We're not the rest of the world. No one else has our problems......" Yeah, because we are a textbook example for the rest of the world on what to avoid.
  5. At this point, I'm just wondering what the fleet numbers will be. The grand total of new Prevost could be 257+50+23=330. The delivery schedule so far is: MTA Bus (for 257 buses) 30 November 2020–December 2020 NYCT (for 50 buses + 23 option buses) 30 January 2021–February 2021 MTA Bus (for 257 buses) 227 February 2021–February 2022 NYCT (for 50 buses + 23 option buses) 20 February 2022–March 2022 NYCT (for 50 buses + 23 option buses) 23 March 2022 – April 2022 (SIM23+SIM24) There could be different scenarios in how the numbers are done: If you start at 2790, then the fleet will end at 3119...... - Suppose MTA Bus gets alloted the first 257 (2790-3046) numbers on that range. The first 30 MTA Bus (2790-2819) would knock out the remaining Detroit green-sign D4500s.The next 180 MTA Bus (2820-2999) would knock out at least 3000-3150, By the time the last 47 MTA Bus (3000-3046) come in, there would be no conflict. BUT if it happens like that, then the first 30 NYCT (3047-3076) would have had conflicted already (because the pilot was there in 2020 and rest in 2021). Maybe some renumbering of the older ones could happen. - It could be MTA Bus (2790-2819), then NYCT (2820-2849), MTA Bus (2850-3076), NYCT+option (3077-3119). 2850-2999 would have freed up least 3000-3125 by late 2021, so conflict avoided. - NYCT (2790-2839), MTA Bus (2840-3096), with MTA having time to decide NYCT option (3097-3119). 2840-2869 replace MTA Bus Detroits and 2870-2999 replace the first 130 D4500CLs, freeing up the 3000s. .......Or they get a new block, along the lines of 1800-2129 to keep express buses as close as possible. Who knows, maybe a surprise 9000 series.
  6. On a side note, the guy who had all of London's articulated buses replaced by his own failure-prone Borismasters is now PM. Gotta love that political interference.

  11. Bro, writing your text bigger isn't going to make it any righter.
  12. It appears that a garbage train stalled over the Manhattan Bridge this morning, and a R68 had to save it. Someone on FB posted photos of the R68 at 38th Street Yard.
  13. Chao-Hwa Chen (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3Oh2N4cfvQZ5VqD3Y4zRAw) has uploaded some of his old videos. So far, there is full length RFW footage of the R32 to Astoria and the R40 Slant to 21 Street-Queensbridge, and some other good stuff, like an reroute and Redbird RFW footage.
