Bronx buses are getting snow chains installed as of the PM pull-outs.

Well they did such a fine job with preparation, that there is still salt here in Riverdale from the last so called snow storm:

Took these this morning while waiting for the express bus along Henry Hudson Parkway and 232nd.

Anyone think that the MTA will try to save a D60HF for the museum fleet?

If they do, it should be one of units that ran on the BX12 SBS before the 1200s came. MTA loves SBS so it would only be fitting a bus from that original SBS batch gets saved.

I tried to use the The Q53 yesterday and the machine it said my Atlantic Ticket Weekly was "Iinvalid". Whats up with that?

From what I understand, it's only good for the subway & local bus rides only....

SBS isn't a "local bus".

I've used it on the B44 SBS and Q44 SBS machines. On the receipt where is says "Type" it says "Atlantic"

edit:

So I see it's a weekly ticket..... I know that w/ the one way & round trip ones, you have to use them on the same day you purchased them (which I think is stupid, but w/e).....

Outside of a defective machine, I can't think of anything immediate as to why your ticket got rejected.

Yeah, the one way Atlantic Tickets are like weekday City Tickets basically,  Just for LIRR. Only the Weekly Atlantic ticket has a metrocard on the back.

Yeah maybe the machines were mistaken

Did you use the same card on any other bus/subway since this occurred? I once had the same issue with my XBus Plus Unlimited Card, and it killed the card. Had to send it back, which was a whole hassle

I used it on the (J) not too long after, and used it on the subway this morning.

I just realized forgot to mention something, when I first dipped my card in the machine, I didn't pay attention to the screen, I was just waiting for my receipt to come out to grab it, but it didn't.

So, I'm not sure if the machine said "invalid card" the first time, or if receipt just didn't come out and It thought I was trying to double dip.  Would the machine usually say "just used" though like the fare gates in the subway?

I though for the weekly Atlantic tickets you didn’t need get the receipt because the proof is on back. Just like how the uni ticket is supposed to be proof of payment.

That would make sense, but I'm not sure if the Eagle Team is aware of that, they're probably trained to just look for receipts.

This is why Bronx irritates me..... people just love to trash things. In Brooklyn, the XN60’s look amazing, almost as if people are making at a point not to litter...... But not here in the Bronx. 

The upside to tonight’s Bx6 evaluates is I got the whole variety. Even a D60 was out here!! That was a sight!

I’ve seen some nasty buses in Brooklyn. Not all the time but usually when it does I can tell school kids always just finished riding it. But this is just horrid etiquette. Some places in the U.S. you aren’t allowed to take food on the bus.

Idk if it’s just me but I think KB has stepped up their maintenance. All the buses I get on are nice and clean LOL. 

Edit: Also what is with 5832’s paint job? It’s like someone took a steel wool and tried taking the black stripe off the sides. Homemade decal scheme?

The people that are out here littering on public streets & on public property have no respect for shit that isn't theirs... Can't have much of anything nice in this city...

There's a saying that the eyes are the window to the soul..... Your actions are also a window to your mind.

Case in point, the picture of that bus ENY posted... Would it really shock anyone if these people's living quarters were just as (if not more) filthy as they leave these buses/trains???

I'm shocked that JG's unit haven't gotten trashed yet considering the B35 goes through some of Brooklyn's rougher neighborhoods. Is there a chance we can see a few units go on other JG lines like the B61 and/or B63?

 

Them dirty people up in the Bronx (some of them) are way worse than anyone along the B35.....

For a few days 5832 was running around completely naked. Once they finally repainted it, they did a bad job...

I'm actually shocked at how clean they are.....

Anyway, I find a good portion of buses in the Bronx are grimy....

 

...in more ways than one.
