I have a question, what's the difference between Bus Fest and the Bus Roadeo?

 

Bus fest allows everyone to see the vintage and current buses+ Free Admission to NYCTM

 

Bus roadeo is for b/os to test out there driving skills with old buses?

 

btw i got the invite card in the mail. It says 12-5 PM... I gotta check again but it said 5 as ending

Well this past Roadeo, they used mainly RTS's from Ulmer and Flatbush than any museum bus [from what I saw that is]. But both events are free, except the Roadeo, you have to know where the shuttle bus is and walk a bit more to get to the actual place. But there were a lot of museum buses there that I've never seen before.

 

The bus fest, is on the street and even more people are there as it is more accessable. But only a limited amount of buses can be parked there. And yeah, it's great about the free TM admission. Not like the current $5 fare is that bad though.

Roadeo has a competition but it is more for the DOB employees and their familiies...there is food and usually a picnic like atmosphere...also old buses are available for vintage runs and are also on display..

The only UPK bus I saw this year was MCI 2884. Most of the RTSs were from Flatbush & Fresh Pond with one or two from Grand Ave.
