Buses you never see/always see on certain routes

Recommended Posts

I think my general preference for the LI's O5s is known, but for some reason I never see the Orion VIIs on these routes:

 

N6

N8

N16

N43

 

And though RVC only has 30 of the 100 O7 NG CNGs, they're common on the N4 and N25...

 

O7s are common on the N31/32 and N40/41...

 

And when I DID see an N43, it was never on an O5 CNG with the Cummins L10G engine. They were always 2000-04 O5 runs.

wow you never see the newer 07 VII on those routes ever.

 

buses are given out on certain routes for certain reasons...

 

example.. splits usually see 1400+ & 1500 buses sometimes

 

early and late straights see 1600+ & 1700+ buses

 

these can change depends whats in the building at the time

IIRC, the Designline was out of Grand Avenue. The only Queens bus route it could have been on was the Q59.

 

I have seen an Orion V with Cummins on the N43, but that was probably around 2003 or 2004.
