Well, I decided to ride the vintage bus that was running on the M34 for a bit in the evening rush to kill some time before I headed home from the mall. Enjoy!

I've read on the ads in the buses, that you can ride the vintage buses (rust buckets as I call them), for the price of a regular ride. How does one pay? Do they have a MetroCard farebox?

The buses have Metro Card fareboxes just like any other bus.

I was thinking to myself maybe they installed the MetroCard readers on them.

That answers the question that I had.

 

I do miss the old fare boxes though. They made a great sound as they collected and (I assume) sorted, the coins/tokens. When I was a kid, my dad use to take me to the "Y" on Staten Island. I forget which line, I know we picked up the bus at 86th street and 5th ave in Bay Ridge.

 

Anyway, one day on the way home the B/O let me push the bar on the fare box for the entire trip bay to BR. Always had a soft place in my heart for B/O's ever since.
