East New York

New Depots for NYCT

Recommended Posts

It's never been a more exciting time to be a fan of The(MTA) New York City Transit! We already know the basic details about the new Charleston Depot to be built off the south shore of Staten Island. So lets move along!

 

*Jamaica Depot to be replaced.

*Castleton Depot to be either replaced, re-habbed, or re-built.

*126 St Depot to be Demolished, and rebuilt.

 

NYCT currently has 46 washers, and 20 paint booths spread throughout the system. They plan to add more, as well as revitalize current depots and depot equipment.

They've been talking about Charleston for years. I hope they do it.. If not, Lets get Edgewater Depot back up and running:D. Edgewater used to be a depot in Staten Island, right off Bay St, near the (MTA) Staten Island Railway Clifton Station. The depot was located right on the water; hence, absorbing information that one of the Depot's piers collapsed some decades ago, and some buses fell into the Water:p

still confused. When charleston depot is built, will that replace castleton or where there be 3 depots once that is built.

To my Vast knowledge off New York City Transit, its been said that the Charleston Depot will become Staten Island's THIRD Bus Depot. I was never under the assumption that Castleton will be replaced, but hey, its the (MTA), and they're going our way..:(

 

 

 

to the extent.............:D

I don't think Castleton is going anywhere... probably will be re-built....

 

now Jamaica, yeah, that depot needs to be elsewhere... long been over-past-due... no sense in trying to demolish & rebuild that depot...

 

what's the deal with 126th; why is that depot set to be rebuilt?

 

from what I been hearing, Charleston is supposed to be a depot only housing the MCI's (the express routes)... is there any truth to this ???

They want to build a bigger depot, so the buses don't have to be parked at 3 different spots, and on the streets. All they have to do is build up, like 100st depot.
