Nova Bus LFS

Recommended Posts

in 2006 - 2007 ( whenever (MTA) was thinking about purchasing

90 Nova Bus LFS. i am guessing that (MTA) was going to use

#5770 - #5859 for the purchase of 90 Nova Bus LFS.

1996 - 1998 D60HF New Flyer #1000 - #1109 is coming for the closer for

the retirement. i believe (MTA) should not purchase 90 Nova Bus LFS.

they should of purchase 150 Nova Bus LFS. why mostly Nova

Bus LFS will be sent to Micheal J. Quill Depot , 100 street ,

126 street depot for the replacement of 1996 - 1998 D60HF

new flyer #1000 - #1109 , ( Nova Bus LFS will be go to

126 street Depot for new route M15 SBS ( select Bus Service)

and in the Bronx Gun Hill Depot will only recieve Nova Bus LFS

and will be use for Bx12 SBS ( select bus service)

I wonder if they really need 90 artics for 2 SBS routes.

 

When the delivery starts they should send some artics (Nova or D60HF) to West Farms, Casey Stengel or Jamaica for the Q44, and some to Flatbush for the B46.

When the M15 SBS start? I think the buses will come around the time that SBS starts on the M15. Since these were ordered just for that IIRC.

I think the artics were meant for the B44 than the B46 since they wanted to run SBS on the B44.

M15 select bus service) start in January 2010

 

Then my guess would be the buses would come next month or Dec 2009. Can't wait until they come in service, not a fan of the 10xx artics.

M15 starting janaury 2 , 2010??? i am gueesing

 

1. The LFS Artics are NOT numbered in the 5770s, They are 1200-1289.

2. The official depot assignments arent announced as of yet, so keep your speculation to yourself.

 

3. 1201-1202 ( Or 1200-1201 ) have been built and undergoing road testing before delivery. They will be at 126th Street Depot as pilot buses.

4. Gun Hill already has the newest artics that MJQ & 126th was supposed to keep until they swapped artics so that the SBS can have cameras (which most of them dont work anyway). I dont see a reason for them to receive more new buses as 126th needs the LFS Artics much more than Gun Hill.
