As in routes moving to different depots. nothing. Brooklyn depots except Ulmer Park have the (M) Shuttle.

How about as in bus moves?

4001 is showing up on Bus Time on the Q55 this moment.

4001 and 4002 loans to FP or actual moves?

A move given that Fresh Pond needs buses for local buses and the (M) shuttle bus.

 

Side note, 4004 is at Fresh Pond from Yukon.

Apparently, those are actual moves to Fresh Pond. Possibly expect more since the (M) shuttle is days away and Fresh Pond is getting most of the shuttle work.

Assuming most of Yukon's fleet will be heading over to FP, will Yukon get anything back in return? Or will they borrow from Castelton and Charleston?

So far, Yukon has 8183 from Charleston. Yukon usually loans buses to other depots during the summer and receive their units back till the fall season.

You are right, I believe Yukon did send buses to Fresh Pond last year. However, a fair amount of those buses are now in Fresh Pond property from Yukon.

4000 is at GA.

4001-4006 all went to FP.

8181-8183 came from CH; Yukon already had 8214 and 8258 since the winter.

Technically SC isn't a Brooklyn depot.

It was a Brooklyn Division depot before it switched over to Queens Division. I guess Queens felt they didn't have enough depots and dragged Spring Creek. (I could be wrong with this)

How so? Queens has 3 TA and 5 BC.

 

Here's the thing and this is IMO. Spring creek currently stands on Brooklyn property. Has 2 lines, B100, and B103, plus their Manhattan express lines. At one point there were supposed to acquire the Q7 or Q8. Can't remember. However, that didn't fall thru. Thus later, it got flipped over to Queens Division.

 

Previous rosters show that SC was a Brooklyn Division depot. If East New York or the real can shed some light to this it would be great.
