You will think that they would call it something more grand since the POTUS is coming but I guess local event is fine.

"The Impeachment" has a nice ring to it.

Random thought of the morning: 4241 just finished doing a B44SBS+ run.  Damm, FB extremely short on artics. This whole XD60 order is a complete mess.

Almost all of the Brooklyn Division is hella short on buses. At this point, I don’t even know how they are making adequate rush hour service. I mean Fresh Pond’s making service with 201 buses when they really need 219, while Flatbush has 230 when they need around 250 buses? What the hell is going on here (unless that is something above your pay grade)?

Ha. I really don’t care for it at this point. The whole (MTA) is a complete mess at this point. Late orders and the Department of buses being a dysfunctional bunch. Add all of that it all equals disaster.

Brooklyn division shuttles more people than any other borough and yet we lose buses to every other borough. They took those artics off the b44 sbs cause the M14 got more service additions for the L train project even though most riders are taking the M and J trains. What person who need to go to Brooklyn would take a Manhattan bus route to the j train when’s 14th has more subway options? 

The MTA didn’t even think this crap through at all.

This while M14SBS thing is out of proportion. There was no need in my honest opinion to have a 14SBS. All they had to do was add more service on the trains. Kept the shuttle buses only for nights, weekends and late rush hours

Above Future ENY OP's pay grade huh?? Alright, chump...

Explain... and prove.... in detail.... with specificity, how you come to the benchmark & conclusion that FP "needs" exactly 219 buses & Flatbush "needs" around 250....

Go on, Mr. C.E.NO....

Clock's ticking.....

I wouldn't be so quick to say that... How quickly people forget when depots like West Farms and LaGuardia were perennially short buses.

This is what happens when people complain about old buses (RTSs) and that they need to be retired ASAP even though they were due to retire in less than a year from now.

B44 sbs didn’t use RTSs they took about 10 of FB artics and put them in Manhattan.

All because they want to have the M14 SBS ready by June. The (MTA) wants to have SBS using only new scheme buses so that is why they went down that path.

The Quill in general got an additional 30 plus lfsa buses with the new scheme to replace the local fleet they had for the M14. They only took FB newer artics due to the fact they wanted more service to the M14 for the L train project. But even still many displaced riders aren’t taking the bus it’s the J and M trains they are using and they’re using the subway to get to them not the bus.

Some displaced riders are using the M14 bus since some of them have only used the (L) to get within Manhattan. With (L) service in manhattan reduced to every 20 minutes, those Intra-Manhattan are going to find a new way to get around. Plus this is the opportunity to try something new with street designs, taking the Toronto King Street Transitway project and applying it to 14th Street.

It's a thought that Flatbush may get more NGs from GH/YUK with more LFS on the way.

That some shouldn’t result in taking away service from one of the most highest frequented bus route in nyc. 

The M14 was always supposed to go select anyway and even went with transit way.

Shouldn’t those be going to Manhattanville and Freah Pond to retire the rest of the 2003-04 Orion VIIs and be first 158 of the 2004-05 Orion VIIs?

Apparently the service will be augmented by 15 new XE60s, which won’t start arriving until this Fall, months after the SBS service starts.
