163 is listed at FR and JFK at the same time on the TTMG Roster...

 

Btw, what happened to 157? Scrap? Can't seem to find it.

To clear things up.. 157 is at FR & 163 Is at JK.

 

Wait they gain their 4 buses back only to lose 5 more...what the hell...

I know.. Real stupid. Thing is .. Why are they switching buses anyway ??

All I can think of is Milage Swap? Those buses are too young though...

Also, don't those 3xx's have Bustime? That could be the reason why?

They can enable Bustime on any bus. It doesn't matter about the #'s all they have to do is activate it. I don't know why they would switch them. It cant deal with mileage I don't think. They're new and young like you said.

320-349 have Bustime.

No 320-344 has GPS.

Oh, I thought it was up to 349. Thanks for the correction.

I know 345-349 had the ads for it but not activated.

 

Probably since West Farms is still getting their 7s upgraded...

Ahh I forgot about that

Nice shots 711, but would you happen to know why these units were retrofitted with the LEDs (flimsy flipdots maybe?)? Also, it's interesting to see how the MTA isn't reactivating the LED units for MTA bus....

5615 will be OOS for quite some time after today's toasting.

Guess another D60 bites the dust... until it gets rebuilt with another unit's rear...?

Or they might actually get rid of it. Looks like they did get to it right in time as the fire was starting up.

Not a move per se, but 1023 was formerly 5425 (although the interior number has not been changed).

 

I could have sworn that 5425 was in service in Tuskeegee just weeks ago.... dayum.

Wow I could've sworn I saw that bus # a few weeks back. I was behind 1023 today.

 

868, 903 from JG - EC as of this morning.
