This bus was bought back to life by the maintence guy then this bus went to the Flatbush Depot where the battery compartment was getting worked on at the maintence bay there. This bus was working the B36.

The same thing happened to me yesterday on the S62 heading to S.I. College. The bus went out of service a little after Jewett Avenue because of a overheated engine.

 

Speaking of which, what's the life expectancy for a bus? I know trains on average last 40 years. What about a bus?

The Life expectancy of an bus is 12 years, back in the day it used to be a bit higher when the builders used to overbuild their buses. Today the builder that still overbuilds its buses is MCI.

Havent seen a nova down in a while, nice pictures

 

Thanks
