Good tip thanks R62a:tup:. FYI related but slightly off topic what happened to talks and rumors going back at least 4-5 years when the B13 was extended there about sending the B103 to Brooklyn Gateway Mall?

DOT denied the proposed change to extend the B103 to the shopping center

As well they should have...

 

The main objective of the 103 is to make the commute easier from Canarsie (and that general area) to Downtown Brooklyn (& vice versa).... If riders want the mall, they can walk from the nearest stop in downtown to the mall, to the physical mall itself.

 

 

DOT no longer runs the B103 and thought maybe the (MTA) by now could do it?

Why, though?

All the ppl. that need the 103, are going to get on it before it ever reaches Atlantic av anyway.....

if people want to go to the mail,they take the 82 to the 83-call it a day.

 

The 103 doesn't even feel like LTd bus route...it make too many stops now.

I guess this means that Spring Creek depot stays open 7 days a week instead of closing on Sunday, and might possibly mean that FR loses the B100 as well.

Yeah Spring Creek joins the real bus world and is open 7 days a week now.

 

Well '2' bus services i know dont run/operate on Sundays. In Long Island Suffolk County Transit and here near my neck of the woods, Dutchess County Loop.B)

 

PS. What are the headways for the B103 on Saturdays and Sundays?

Now CNG RTS 4904 which is housed @ SC can be displayed at Bus roadeos & Bus fests now that the depot is open on sundays! I remeber when I went by SC a few months ago and there it was lookin' nice and shiny. Sadly, last time I went by SC that bus was not parked out in the open.

 

Slighty off topic but when Command bus was around did the B100 run on sundays?

Yes it did. Correct me old timer transitfans but i think the B100 ran hourly on Sundays from about 8am-8pm. Also the B100 in the Command days would not operate at all on major holidays like New Years, July 4th, thanksgiving and Christmas.

Off topic but why was Hudson River banned? I see it says "Banned" under his handle.

 

I'm not sure myself, but I don't think it had anything to do with his posts though.
