    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    Lmaooo you got it all WRONGGG @East New York. We all know buses need HVACs. I was talking to Caitsith, because on one of his YouTube videos, (New Flyer XD40 4850 Audio Clip), I commented on how the shifting is different on the buses 4840-4853, compared to rest of the 4800s. They all had LBSS at the time, excluding 4819, 4836, and 4865. But in regards to all of the LBSS ones, 4840-4853 sounded a little different in terms of their acceleration. The shift into 4th gear sounded different from others. I used 4884 as an example. He, Caitsith, replied saying, "It's the same shifting, only difference is the lack of HVAC", meaning the HVAC was OFF in the audio recording of 4850, not missing an HVAC. Well now that you're a part of this convo, lets here your opinion. Does 4850 and 4884 have different shifting patterns? I notice the change from 3rd to 4th gear is different. 5 years ago it was hard for me to tell which gear a bus was in, so I couldn't back up my opinions. Heres the two videos. 4850: use the acceleration at 0:13 for an example. 4884: use the acceleration at 2:14 for an example.

    How long until we get ridership statistics on the S.I express routes? I wanna see if ridership went down significantly, or if the redesign forced people onto the bus more leading to all of this excess overcrowding.

    I'm gonna tell you what you told me 5 years ago, "It's the same shifting. The only difference is the lack of HVAC." That's what I was trying to tell you about the 4800 XD40s with LBSS.

    I'm pretty sure New Flyer just messed up. The acceleration does sound a little different, but maybe that's just the LBSS doing something a lil different.

    MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

    Word I would dread if they used Clever Devices on the local routes. The amount of overlapping would be ridiculous. The Luminators are perfect for ALL routes. Just get rid of the service alerts. Soon as the bus is a full length out the stop, the next stop announcements play, NO delay.

    MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

    This will be my all time favorite video of Version 2 during the test phase. This is literally perfect for the M15 SBS, announces stops and TRANSFERS at a nice timing in between stops. I wonder how the screens are doing now? Why doesn't Version 2 announce the stops on the newer models?

    Xcelsiors with inward opening doors open so fast. Literally would've been perfect for the MTA. Them Novas take like 5 secs to open. Another stupid spec decision. Edit: I just checked the S79 on bus time as of 7:41. There's an SI Mall bound S79 approaching Richmond & Hylan, one at Hylan and Clove SI Mall bound the following SI Mall bus is at 4th Ave & 86st. There are legit 13 buses Bay Ridge bound in-between Hylan and Quintard, and Narrows Rd and Fingerboard...wtf happened on the bridge today....

    I love how you were able to get every type of Bronx artic bus in one pic, each type of XD40 at ENY in one pic, AND each type of Prevost in one pic. Amazing.

    Right thats what I'm saying because I also have 8241-8243, 8247-8252 with screens. Might as well update the entire list. I wonder why Charleston isn't installing the screens?

    I think shuttles from the ferry to the Verrazano? Or maybe some came from Jersey over the Bayonne? Idk I just saw a conga line of NJT Nabis and Academy MCIs, and a few ALL WHITE 4th gen Nova LFSs heading down Bay Street towards the Verrazano filled to capacity.

    BUS - Random Thoughts Thread

    They have a bunch of NJT local buses along with Academy coach buses doing some sort of marathon shuttle down Bay St.
  15. Is it possible to create a X18 route that runs via West St and then straight up to 42st and across 42nd to Madison? And back down 5th? I would have it start at School Rd/Tompkins Ave, run down School, left on Bay St, Left on Hylan, Right on Tompkins, Left on Vanderbilt, to Richmond Rd, left on Narrows Rd to bridge. Then via west street, stopping at financial district, and then all the way up to 42st and via Madison/5th. That whole area has no peak Midtown service, until you reach the end of Narrows Road, where you have the 10, and the 6 on Lily Pond.
