Its decisions like this that I wish the TA ordered more XD40's than LFS. Hope I never catch a LFS on a crowd B15...

Anyways thanks for reporting the update.

I'm just glad that UP won't be getting those LFS'. I hope never to catch one on the B6 ever again. I am also glad that QV will only be getting a little more than 20 buses, as they flood the Q43 and other like routes. 

 

I also hope that the 2011 XDs over at ENY ake the move to GA as a result of these developments.

 

5036 is at Flatbush from Ulmer Park. Also 9597 is at QV, from God Knows where.

Please read and comprehend before asking questions that can be answered in the text.  Thank You.  And please save this post for your future reference so certain questions won't be asked.

 

All of us should also remember that fleet assignments are always very fluid and can change at any time.

I find it interesting that ENY is also getting LFS's I thought the first units would go to JA since they are losing almost everything except the current LFS's they have.

However this list is not final right anything can changed at the last minute right?

Who the eff is BusChats' "caine515"?  Does he post here under that handle or posts here under a different handle?

 

You have some hell of a nerve to cut and paste my post of the bus assignments on BusChat w/o giving Trevor Logan credit like I did here.  Never mind I posted it here, I was not looking for credit but I do not want my work to be cut and pasted anywhere else w/o my permission.  This is the second time you did this.

 

Got it?

Honestly, I thought the option order would stay on the Brooklyn side of things. Preferably Fresh Pond and or Grand Avenue since they have more 97/98 RTS.

 

just trying to make sense with these moves. Just 3 weeks ago FP sending buses crosstown to FB and most of those buses got sent back to FP with exception of 4107, 4109, 4521,4525,4527, 4530. "The saga continues"

Yeah.

 

I think he meant the 72 buses not option order

Well if he did mean that, then he must not know what the 72 buses were actually replacing, the worst Orion V's.
