I was in Jamaica from 3:30 to 8pm bus fanning...On Jamaica Av from 3:30 to 5pm and then over on Archer until 8pm...Did not see one ex-PBL RTS... All (MTA)Bus RTS's were ex-NYCT....

 

I know there are still a few roaming around, must be less than 10 at this point.

Baisley Park has 1183 and 9706

Far Rockaway has 1190

JFK has 5926, 5995, 9766, and 9791

LGA has 9709 and 9755

 

Total - 9 PBL's left in service. LGA and BP will most likely lose theirs by late December-early January and JFK/FR will probably lose them sometime in January.

Must've been the influx of ex-BL O5's that sent most of the PBL RTS's to their grave because a month or so ago there was still a healthy dose to be found in Jamaica durning the Rush Hours, and now NONE! durning the entire rush hour on Friday.

 

I did see a couple working the Q37 during the rush one time over on Union Trpk and Blvd.

No...the graveyard.

 

The ones at JFK will probably be the last ones in service, I would think. That garage is supposed to get 26 more NGs.

 

BP is getting some O5s to replace theirs, and FRK is supposed to get 8 O7s from BP. In addition, some Novas may end up at MTA Bus to replace them as well as the last 20 1990 TMCs.

 

As it stands---13 are in driveable condition; the other two are 5999 (preserved as JBI 3865 and sitting in the back of that lot), 682 (preserved as Command 4904), 695 (used as a dispatching office but not run in service at Spring Creek) and 5904 (preserved as Queens Surface 275) are the units not in MTA livery.

Well as of now the amount of PBL TMC 1994s are the following:

 

Baisley Park has: 1183 and 9706

 

Far Rockaway has: 1190 which is a runner :cool:

 

JFK has: 5926,5995,9766 and 9791

 

LGA has: 9709 and 9755

 

So in total we have: 9 PBL TMCs left better go get them while they last.

1183 was the last ex Jamaica Bus, It retired a week and half ago, 9706 been gone, BP has like 4 1990 TMC's, I seen 8195,8218,8306 and 8359.

 

JFK is going to be the last depot to have the 1994 TMC ex-PBL's, Its sad how they retired these buses, They had 2 more years left in them.
