I was informed yesterday that ulmer park might get one 9300 from lga ( dont know witch # ) & u.p might get another 8900 ^_^ , but the only routes we have are the b1 , b3 , b6 , b3k , x28 , b64 & x27 , we dont need all these buses , like for what reason and i ride by in the morning , lunch time , & towards 5 before the major pull in time , but they put every express bus on the x28 like alll of them are out they put them 3 minutes apart so in the morning and after noon they are back to back non stop until about say 7ish , because thats pull in time and the line is long , & we have alot of buses sitting inside , i would like to see the whole building empty

That's not possible. And did you ever concider that some are there as spares in case other buses on their routes craps out and needs a replacement? You need some buses in the depot around.

UP needs all those buses. Don't forget about the B36 and 74 (mentioned in the above post).

Well you are right , the bus lines that need the most buses are the 6 & 36 , the b74 only has 3 or 4 buses on that line allday , i just saw 3 on the line right now , in the monring it starts with 3 & toward the after noon goes 4 and then when its about 5 they cut down so itll be 3 again and then when its 9 its 2 buses only and when its 10 30 its only 1 and that last 1 finished up and the last bus is at 11 30

LGA BETTER not send a damn thing to UP. LGA is badly short as it is now. They CANNOT be any shorter. UP I would hope would send something to LGA in return.

Nope lol , maybe they might send a 9300 but i doubt it now , we were going up to the 8000s-8900s now so i dont know , i heard 9101-9109 are going to be dumped soon , 9109 & 9309 are looking a bit bad now but i saw 9309 sitting inside today so i guess they are going to fix it and i will suggest to them that they repaint 9309 and 9305 too , lga has 252 buses or less than that ? & they have alot of routes , bp should give their buses to lga theyve only got 5 routes left so thats notthing .

1: don't let anyone access your profile

2: if he wants a profile of his own then have him sign up for it.

The QBx1's RTS buses will be put on the Bx23 or the Q50 (the two new routes that will be formed after the QBx1's end) unless they get scrapped.

True, BP doesnt have that many routes, but the Q111 for example has headways of aproximately 2-5 minutes on the weekdays. So that alone requires a nice amount of buses.
