    New Jersey Transit Depot-By-Depot Bus Roster

    Yes to my surprise as well; there are 45 footers running on the 316 and 317. 18127 and 18129 are on the 317 and 18128 on the 316 as of this morning. None have been used yet on the 409.
  2. 18126 is on the 317 via MyBusnow approaching Moorestown Mall. 18129 on the 317 as well coming from Asbury Park. I thought Camden wasn't getting 45 foot buses.
  3. 18122 and 18123 are on the 559. Are these loaners or will they be assigned to Egg Harbor Twp? Also 18010 and 18011 were sent down the AC Expressway from Washington Twp to Egg Harbor Twp...I am assuming they're just there for the summer.

    If you could create/change any bus line NJT edition

    I would split the 317. Have it terminate in Lakewood. Then have a new route 839 bus (by TransDev )take care of the Shore Points from Lakewood on up to Asbury Park. The 317 route is long enough. Also I would have the 406 split trips between Newton Avenue and Washington Twp. The 406 covers a chunk of Cherry Hill and Marlton and connects with mainly Newton Avenue routes. Although it is nice to see the new 18000s on that route (especially in East Camden which is NABI territory;) The 406 is not a very long distance route that requires so many MCI buses especially during the week when they are back to back. I would also split the 455 between the 2 garages. The Southern End covers a lot of Gloucester County which is Turnersville ( Washington Twp) territory. And on Sundays, Turnersville should definitely do that route since it only serves between Paulsboro and Deptford Mall.

    New Jersey Transit - Random Thoughts Thread

    I don't understand the summer time MCI swapping in South Jersey; So Egg Harbor is borrowing 18010 and 18011 for the summer from Washington Twp.. The problem is this Washington Twp has already been short a couple of MCis. ANd in turn they still have to borrow MCIs for trips on the 551 and 554. Tonight..18091 is on the 551 yet EHT has 18010 and 18011. It has happened almost every night last week too. Why loan buses to a garage when you still have to borrow theirs? Meanwhile up the Freeway in Camden, they're severely short MCIs now. Today and even on Friday an NABI was used the 317, which goes from Camden and Philadelphia all the way up to Asbury Park. And NABIs show up on the 409, 417 and 418 daily now. Sometimes the 409 even has to borrow NABIs from Mercer County for their trips. It is about to get worse the 316 starts up next weekend and they use MCIs from all 3 South Jersey garages.
  6. 18107 was on the 406 during rush hour today. Not sure if it was a loaner from Egg Harbor or more buses for Turnersville ( Washington Twp)? We still have two oldies in Turnersville (7516 and 7523) running and NABIs are still used on MCI routes. 5341 is on the 554 this evening.

    Egg Harbor Twp and Howell share trips on the 137 during the rush hour. 7422 is on there now which is now an Egg Harbor Twp bus and 7801 is running on there as well.

    Atlantic County also has 18094 running on the 553. It looks like there are more new buses. I saw 18095 on mybus now earlier too.

    Surprised that there is still a shortage in Washington Twp even with all of the 18000s and with 16003 there too; 3 Newton Avenue MCIs covering tonight: 7546 on the 554; 7564 on the 551 and 7548 was on the 406 during the rush hour earlier. It is funny because 4 old MCIs were just transferred to Camden (7512, 7520, 7526 and 7528).

    18063 on the 406 tonight along with 16003 and 18009. Is Washington Twp still short buses? 5334 was on the 554 this morning, also over the weekend NABIs on the 406 (5356) and 412 (5329). Four older models still around too: 8270 and 7516 were on the 406 7523 on the 408 and 7515 on the 401. Newton Avenue acquired 7512, 7520 and 7526 from Washington Twp. At one point, they had 7528 as well, but it's been about a week since I've seen it on MyBus now. 7501 is back at Newton Avenue also. Egg Harbor has been using 8286 on the 559.

    18037 and 18038 in Washington Twp.
  13. Two more buses on the map: 18037 on the 554 and 18038 on the 551. I wonder how many more 18000s for the 1st batch of the Washington Twp order

    They had 5362 last night on the 551 also. It is not unusual...Washington Twp is still about 12 MCIs short. Newton Avenue loaned 7545 and 7548 to Washington Twp last night too, 7545 was on the 402 and 7548 on the 406. I find this also odd when they just transferred 7512, 7520 and 7526 to Newton Avenue when the 18000s arrived.
  15. 18035 did a 406 and turned into a 402 Express when it got to Philadelphia 18036 is on the 406 now also.
