Brooklyn Mini Busfan Trip


Recommended Posts

Today I was in Midwood taking pics when I noticed that the majority of B103's were Orion V CNG Suburbans. With that in mind, I'm planning on riding it on February 16th. I don't have a specific time in mind, but it would be in the afternoon (2:30 PM-ish). I'll take it to Flatbush Junction and then take the B41 to Veterans Avenue. I'll take some BM1 pics before returning to the city.

 

Tentative Itinerary:

 

B103 from Downtown Brooklyn to Flatbush Junction (Flatbush/Nostrand)

 

20 minute break to take pics

 

B41 to Veterans Avenue

 

10-15 minute photo stop

 

Return to city

 

Anyone want to join me? The trip will take place on February 16 around 2:30 PM

I don't have a Brooklyn Bus map on me right now, but it will be at the B103's first stop in downtown Brooklyn. The trip doesn't have to be on the 16th. It can be on the 16th, 17th, or 19th (I'm working on the 18th). All public schools are off that week.

Just because you saw a majority of O5s at that time doesn't mean you'll get as many O5s on another day. As someone who is at the Junction fairly often, there's a good number of hybrids on the B103 as well.

B41s, I would say are maybe 50-50 RTS and O7 NGs.

Um, let me say it again. I am at the Junction fairly frequently and I can tell you there's usually a better chance in getting a hybrid on the B103 compared to an O5. There is nothing to dispute.

 

And what new buses? The B103 only runs two types of buses. Same for the B41.

I have to be in the Bronx that morning for a job interview so I'm going to be near the Lexington Avenue line. Just to entice more people to join, I'll add a new leg to the trip: the trip will start at 42nd Street on the (4)(5)(6). We'll take the (4) or (5) to Borough Hall, then the B103, and then the B41 to Veterans Avenue.

The trip is most likely taking place. However, since I'm not one of the "popular" members, no one besides Megabus wants to join. Oh well. We'll have fun.

 

These are your comments - - personally if I have time I would join you on any trip (assuming I didn't work that day) but you need to please chill out with the "popularity" issue. Everyone is treated on the same page and no one is a celebrity.

You said it, NPD.

Why not a Q35 ride out to Rock Park then take the (S) ====>(A) back to the city.

Depending on what day it is and if any other events pop up I should be able to go. I have an event with my friends on either the 17th or 18th, and there is a TTMG trip on the 19th. I should be good for the 16th, and maybe the 17th. Let's set up the date first.
