East New York

Official Surface Transit Trivia

Recommended Posts

Is it east new york? :confused::cool:

 

- Andy

 

In a way it is because East New York was constructed in 1859 as a rail car barn. So technically it is the oldest, but it did not start out as a depot, so it is excluded here. The depot in question was built only for surface transit operations.

 

Hint: It's not a MaBSTOA depot.

Wow I thought it would be MCH but I guess not. Well my guess right now is Coliseum depot aka the current West Farms depot.

 

Edit: You did say NYCT so it may be Jamaica Depot. :(

Both of you guys are right! The depot was opened in 1940.

M4-5th Ave. and Broadway to the cloisters.

 

Close But it's Broadway from Battery Park to Bleeker St. Now the M1/M6. What is now the M4 was once a Fifth Av Coach Co. private line route.

 

Next Question: What bus model does (MTA) have the most of?

Now saying "MTA" you must mean all 3 companies. Long Island bus, Bus Company and New York City Bus. If this is the case, Orion May be the Manufacturer with the most buses on the road but you said "model". Which Means that the RTS, whether it be GMC, TMC, or NovaBus, is still KING!!!!!

Correct, the RTS still out numbers all other bus models. With 910 Orion VII's on order, the RTS will soon become number 2.

 

1,600+ RTS's

1,040 Orion V's (diesel and CNG)

1,010 Orion VII's (hybrid and CNG)

 

Next Question: Where is (MTA) Bus Company Division Headquarters located?

Collage Point Depot

 

You are correct.

 

I going to go with Baisley Park.

 

Baisley Park is actually the (MTA) Bus Co. Central Training Facility.

 

Next Question: On August 5, 1981 NYCT's first GMC RTS T80-204 goes into service out of what depot?
