That's one thing I dislike about the RTSs, my legs get jammed up against the back of the seat in front of me, that's why I sit in the sideways seats in the back or front.

 

I really wonder why Ulmer Park isn't getting any NGs, its fellow forgotten depots Flatbush, Jamaica, & Kingsbridge got them so why not UP? I feel UP should get JFK's & CAS's upcoming deliveries combined (4631-4677), I mean CAS has like 100 NGs already and JFK is like 60% hybrid now.

Heh, this is why I always avoid the forward-facing seats on the RTS, I don't fit too well in those damn seats unless it's the rear corner seats, THOSE I can fit in without any problem thanks to the position of the real wheelwells!

But the thing is, if you make another depot a dual fleet, you have to train drivers to drive them and workers to maintain/fix them. I think it makes sense to have as few a fleet type as possible as well as the parts needed per depot.

 

Sure it doesn't seem fair to Ulmer Park, but not every depot has to have a NG. Plus they also have a pretty 'young' RTS fleet or better maintained group compared to years past with those #high 9200-low 9300 RTSs.

And before anyone says anything, I would not have minded if Ulmer was the one with the NGs over Flatbush. I still slightly prefer the RTS over the NGs.

I don't think the driver training issue is a main problem. It could also simply due to the possibility that Ulmer Park didn't want NG's. It was rumored that BP didn't want the 4245-4278 batch (I don't know how valid this is), and the same may apply to UP.

Again, their RTS fleet has improved dramatically with the departure of those suburban seated buses and the arrival of the 5075-5124 [give or take] buses from Flatbush. So it is not like Ulmer is made up of old buses on their last legs. They can survive for a few more years as an RTS only local fleet even if it has to be the 4900-5200s all moving there.
