  1. The S40/90 Limited tend to get crowded most of the time leaving the terminal now. While boarding the S40 around 1 PM leaving the Ferry terminal, all the seats were filled. Coming back to the terminal, all were packed, thanks to the Amazon warehouse extension.
  2. That one moved couple weeks ago, before more Prevosts showed up at Far Rock.
  3. The was sandwiched up going to World Trade Center earlier today around 5 PM. I was on one of the four to World Trade Center and as soon it was at 5 Av-53 St: It was rerouted via the line due to signal problems. The other 3 were behind backed up with an behind the 's .
  4. 7618: now wrapped in the regular local bus scheme. The wear of the bus has the MTA logo, no New York City Bus afterwards
  5. MHV has 8 Old Gen Hybrids at this time: 6693, 6709, 6724, 6770, 6776, 6783, 6785, 6789. MCH has 10 units: 6706, 6757, 6760-6761, 6765, 6771, 6778-6779, 6782, 6786.
  6. Make that 10 as 6776 has been moved to Manhattanville. Seems that Manhattan wants the Old Gens spread around the range of 10-18 each (100 St not included) to avoid being used on weekends.
  7. At least 10 are left at MCH. 60 of their other local buses are about 1/2 of Next Gens and the new XDE-40.
  8. Manhattanville is not getting rid of all their Old Gen Hybrids yet. A few leftovers from Hale made its way there for now.
  9. Newkirk Av on the is currently: Newkirk Plaza. Recently, the of Newkirk Av will have a location add-on: Little Haiti. It’s seen as: Newkirk Av-Little Haiti.
  10. It probably has to do with the Artic units being out the entire day, in and out: since most of their routes are 24/7.
  11. I think their training was from the demo units that was there before, 0011-15 . That's probably another case on how they were delivered and entered service in pace.
  12. Changes on the trains that's usually on the Stillwell Av Yard for lay-ups: they have been moved to Coney Island next to the trains. While taking the trains spot, some C.I Yard lay-up trains have been moved over to Stillwell Av. Entirely, it's seen as the and trains.
  13. The Franklin Av tends to park the spare 2-car train around random locations. During the summer season, it's mostly seen on the Coney Island/Brighton Beach platform at the Lincoln Av side. Other times, it'll either be around the track a few feet apart where the switches to the local track or coming from the Parkside Av track.
  14. LaGuardia tends to rotate Express units over to College Point at times. Most likely, it's on College Point routes if one of their CP units are on maintenance check
  15. One month later, the Supreme wrap on the has been removed.
  16. I wonder what was the BQM1 renamed as the BM5 about. BQM1 is the current BM5 that's between Spring Creek to Midtown except it goes east of Spring Creek following the QM15. Was it to group all the Brooklyn-Manhattan routes as one?
  17. Not sure during the AM rush hours, the with R160s are signed up: 59 St/4 Av on some trains but seen today. It's the new update where it says 4 Av Local with Times Sq-42 St/PABT have the trunk line transfer.
  18. It's all for how much memory the tech trains have. Similar to the R142, one of the voices have to be deleted for new announcements to make room for future changes to the programs.

  20. There's a 10-car train of an R142A signed up as a at Westchester Yard. Probably just a train in storage for this weekends G/O until midnight. Being back in service on the : wishful thinking.
  21. The R142 subway cars has Times Sq-42 St updated, but looks cramped. Having the in one line, next one: 8 Av then the , in two separate lines along the , with the alone with the PA Bus terminal.
  22. Confirmed via TTMG: 2910 no longer in passenger service.
  23. Also, a warning that unlimited metrocards cannot be used on Express buses. You need a metrocard that has at least $6.75 on it
